We Spoke to Lamb of God's Chris Adler Before the Band's Future Was Up in the Air

Like any band, Lamb of God has had their ups and downs: Drugs, booze, strife, you know, rock 'n' roll.

This year the Virginia metal titans released their seventh studio album, Resolution, to great reviews. The band announced that it was shooting a documentary as they supported the album on the road, and promised more than the typical follow-the-band-around-and-see-what-happens kind of DVD. Lamb of God are documenting their fans and personal accounts of how these fans utilize the band's music to help them cope with every day life, and tragedy. Fans filled out a form on the band's website, submitting a video and a written letter in order ot be considered.

But the release of the documentary is up in the air, like Lamb of God's current tour, which is scheduled to make a stop in Phoenix on Thursday, September 13, at Comerica Theatre, is up in the air after the arrest of frontman Randy Blythe in Prague.
