Now that Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe's Czech prison vacation is over, he and his bandmates are heading out onto the road to make up the dates they had to cancel over the summer.
The metal act will be in Houston on December 6 at Bayou Music Center. The band, plus Dethklok and Gojira, were set to play BMC tomorrow night until dates had to be scuttled with Blythe's fate still in question.
Blythe had been incarcerated in a Czech Republic prison for the past month for his part in the death of metal fan Daniel Nosek, a 19-year old who rushed LOG's stage in Prague numerous time during a May 2010 gig and Blythe pushed him back. Nosek eventually fell directly on his head, resulting in severe head trauma and died weeks later from his injuries.
Rocks Off covered the Free Randy Blythe movement back in July, just as it was picking up full steam. Musicians and fans the world over were backing the metal singer, proclaiming his innocence.
Blythe was released from Czech prison on August 2.

He will be due back in Prague for a trial in the coming months, and Blythe is looking forward to clearing his name.
