Exclusive: Lamb of God Announce As the Palaces Burn Anniversary Edition and Premiere Remixed Track, “Purified”
As Lamb of God winds down the touring cycle for their sixth studio album Resolution, they have announced the release of a remixed and remastered version of their second album, As the Palaces Burn, on November 11th via Prosthetic/Razor & Tie. You can check out a remixed track of “Purified” below.
The album remixed by longtime producer Josh Wilbur features three unreleased demos and a 70-minute story behind the album documentary featuring interviews with all five band members, including original album producer Devin Townsend. The CD package features updated artwork by longtime Lamb of God designer Ken Adams and a new booklet essay by former Revolver Editor in Chief Tom Beajour.
The album will be released during the final North American leg of the Resolution tour cycle featuring Killswitch Engage, Testament, and Huntress. The band will then bring the Resolution cycle to an end with an UK/Europe tour in January featuring Decapitated and Huntress. The final shows will be in South Africa on January 24 and 25. This will be the band’s first visit to that continent.
The Resolution cycle was the most eventful of the band’s long career. Starting in January 2012 with a #3 debut on Billboard, touring began on January 25 of that year and ends exactly two years later. In that period, the band was faced with a career threatening crisis with the arrest and incarceration of vocalist Randy Blythe. After a trial that ended in acquittal, the prosecution appealed and the initial verdict was upheld.
