On August 7, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe was allowed to leave a Czech prison after posting $400,000 bail.

Of course, the band already had scrapped its upcoming tour dates (including a September date in Phoenix), but management has said that it will be pushed back only a couple of months. A show that Lamb of God is still committed to, however, is the first-ever KNOTFEST, a two-date metal and hard rock festival created by Slipknot.
