Check out ‘Still Echoes’ below:

The new album, VII: Sturm Und Drang (German for “storm and stress”), is set to drop in July.

A number of songs on the new record deal directly with LoG front man’s Randy Blythe and his time spent in a Prague prison after a fan died at one of their shows.

Blythe told Billboard.com:

First single “Still Echoes,” which started streaming from LambOfGodVII.com on May 15, is “a lyrical sort of history of Pankrac Prison and kind of a commentary on the state of the place right now and how it’s running,” he explains. The other “is about the extreme psychic change a person undergoes when they are incarcerated possibly for the long term, because it’s not like being in normal society at all.”

You can pick up ‘Still Echoes’ over on iTunes here.

Aug 11 – Jiffy Lube Live – Washington, DC – TICKETS
