Lamb of God Release Official Statement Regarding Randy Blythe’s Situation
This past week has been a whirlwind of drama, accusations and downfalls for metal group Lamb of God, as their metal God front man Randy Blythe has been kept in a Czech jail under manslaughter charges after the death of a fan at one of their Prague shows nearly two years ago. This has been a developing story since the initial happening, and today there has been an official statement released by the entire band.
The statement, which was posted to the band's Facebook page, is as follows:
First of all, thanks to everyone who has reached out in support of Randy and each of us in this terrible situation. It's noted and very much appreciated.
We have been keeping our heads down and not speaking out due to the fluid nature of the situation and the constantly changing information that even we receive daily. Within an hour things can do endless 180's. It's maddening to try and make heads or tails.
We're taking the time to speak to you as it has been a significant period of time since this situation began and while nothing is immediately clear to any of us, we are not trying to keep anyone in the dark.
We have reached out and are making use of the resources we have acquired to help our brother who is still detained in Czech jail.
In the two years since, we were never notified of anything related to this incident.
Randy is our brother and we assure you, we are all staying very positive for him, working endlessly behind the scenes to provide any and all assistance possible.
The best we can do is to stay positive and continue to support our friend that we know is innocent.
We know that justice will prevail and we will continue to do our part to support our friend.

I can't believe all this has happened. I mean, it was a Lamb of God show. It's going to be crazy no matter what and it's people's own faults for doing stupid shit like trying to get on stage. Randy was in the right and obviously had no intention of hurting the kid, it just happened unfortunately. Hopefully he will come out of this just fine and can continue to make amazing music and melt fan's faces off!
