Chris Adler Returning to Stage in October, Not With Lamb of God
Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler stepped away from his live duties with the group in late July of last year, sidelined by injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. Despite having no projected timeline for his return to the band, Adler will indeed be making a return to the stage this October, just not with Lamb of God.
A promotional flyer (seen below) has surfaced, depicting a "Hail! Rockstar Extravaganza" show set in Moscow, Russia on October 19 with an all-star lineup featuring Adler as well as bassist James Lomenzo (ex-White Lion, ex-Megadeth, ex-Black Label Society), guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-Lence, ex-Machine Head) and singer Steve 'Zetro' Souza (Exodus).
Lamb of God currently have five shows booked out for the remainder of 2019. Three of them are in July (including one tonight — July 3) and two festival appearances in October prior to Adler's all-star gig in Moscow.
It is not known if Adler will perform with Lamb of God at any of these shows and Loudwire's request for comment is currently awaiting reply.
On May 5, the drummer posted a video clip from a rehearsal that he dubbed "undercover," which could possibly be linked to the Hail! Rockstar Extravaganza event. See the clip beneath the show flyer.
In late May at the Sonic Temple festival, frontman Randy Blythe was unable to provide an estimate as to when fans can expect Adler back behind the kit with Lamb of God, telling WSOU, "It’s hard to say what’s gonna happen with Chris Adler. I have no comment on him."
Art Cruz (Winds of Plague, Prong) has been performing with Lamb of God in Adler's absence.
