LAMB OF GOD have issued an official statement regarding the arrest of their singer Randy Blythe on manslaughter charges in Czech Prague.
Willie Adler (guitars) responded to a wave of criticism that raised after the band set up a fund to help pay for their singer’s legal expenses.
I want to thank all of you again for your unwavering support in all of this. It’s greatly appreciated and does not go without notice. I’d also feel remiss by not mentioning something else. As you all know, a legal fund has been set up in regards to our current situation. We’ve received quite a bit of backlash which I’d like to respond to. We are by no means requesting charity, nor are we demanding money from our fans. We have received dozens upon dozens of requests from supporters wanting to help in any way possible. This was a direct response to that in order to give fans a voice in all of this if they choose to do so. By no means are we trying to make a dime off of this. Trust me, we live for our fans and would never attempt to profit off of them. This is purely a response to those that reached out wanting to extend any and all help. Which we couldn’t be more thankful for. It brings tears to my eyes as I write this just thinking about the outpouring of support we’ve received. Collectively, we will bring Randy home. He is my brother, your brother, and more importantly, an innocent man being wrongfully detained. I thank you all again, for everything. I love you all.
