Lamb of God Vocalist Randy Blythe Unveils New Solo Tunes
Randy Blythe has a lot of irons in the fire, including a new Lamb of God album, book, movie, photography exhibition and touring. He has also been working on some solo music. Blythe recently posted a couple of YouTube clips via his Randonesia Tumblr. The first video, that you can watch above, features a corpse-painted Blythe singing a beloved song (with slightly modified lyrics) in an interesting style with Sam Haycroft (Duckeye).
Using some social media synergy, Blythe talked about the Tumblr post on his Instagram: "The first is 'Twinkle, Twinkle a Needle in Your Eye,' which I wrote, performed & recorded in its entirety with my friend @samhaycroft while I was on Phillip Island recently. It's a VERY SERIOUS piece of work that I am sure is gonna make the two of us millions & famous as all get out."
As for the second clip that you can watch below, Blythe wrote, "The other link is 'Inventory Trailer,' which has a looped sample from one part of the piece I composed for the Richmond Ballet's upcoming New Work's Festival later this month, as well as a short bit from another part of the composition. My friend @mfrain1 is the choreographer & made a short & sweet video trailer from footage of the dancers in rehearsal learning the choreography & posted it on YouTube, so there's a little taste of two parts of the music on it."
Beginning in May, Blythe will host his first ever photography exhibition. It opens May 9 at Sacred Gallery in New York and runs through June. The musician will attend the opening night reception at the gallery.
Lamb of God are planning a North American tour starting in July with Slipknot, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless in White. They also have numerous European dates and festivals on their calendar. For all their dates, go here.
