“While I’ve dreamed of being a published author almost since I began to read, I never imagined my first book would center around such a sad topic. Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told. I believe this one does (for several different reasons, not just for the benefit of myself), so I will tell it with the respect and dignity all involved deserve. This will be a good read, I promise you, and I hope some good comes of it.”

Chris Adler says Randy Blythe’s arrest “bankrupted” Lamb of God

Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler recently spoke to The Virginian-Pilot about frontman Randy Blythe’s arrest in the Czech Republic last year on manslaughter charges and the subsequent legal ordeal, which took more than eight months to play out. He claims that Randy’s arrest had “bankrupted the entire band”, explaining:

“Not only were we not able to generate any income, but we ended up having to pay more than half a million dollars in legal fees. It bankrupted the entire band; [there was] no money left for any kind of payroll or anything. When Randy was acquitted [in March of this year], everything was on the line at that point. Either it was completely over, or we had a chance to get back out there and pay these bills and get ourselves back on our feet.”

Lamb of God released their last album Resolution in January of last year on Epic Records.



Lamb of God’s Chris Adler to record drum tracks on new Protest the Hero album

Protest the Hero just announced that they have parted ways with their drummer Moe Carlson, with the band enlisting the help of Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler, who happens to be a close friend of them, to oversee the recording parts on their new album, which will be their first since 2011’s Scurrilous. Protest the Hero themselves write:

“We know we have been silent for the past couple months while we record this beast, but we assure you it’s almost done and is turning out extremely well. We plan on releasing our beloved “pupdates” throughout the summer while we set up to release this new album so stay tuned for that.

With all this incredible progress, however, we have some sad news. Our brother and friend Moe has decided to leave the band to go back to school in pursuit of some of his other passions. When our gruelling studio schedule just wouldn’t work with his gruelling school schedule, we realized we would need to find a session player for the new album. With Moe’s guidance and approval, we found us a nice match in Chris Adler! Having known Chris for a few years, and with he and Moe being drum-buddies, it seemed like a perfect fit. We are happy to say that Chris has already come and gone from canada and has left us with some beautiful drum tracks.

Can’t wait for you all to hear it!”

Chris Adler also comments, “I was thrilled to get the call to join up and help out my friends in Protest, how could I turn down one of my favorite bands? I’ve done a bit of session work before with Testament
and Ron Jarzombek but nothing this immersive. I lived and breathed this record for 8 weeks and even lived in Toronto for a month with the guys. The experience was intense tosay the least.

Some of the most demanding and intricate drum work of my career. I’m very proud to have been a part of the Protest family and can’t wait to have you hear it.”
