RIAA-certified, Billboard chart-topping, five-time Grammy nominated Richmond, VA band LAMB OF GOD recently announced the release of their full-length covers album as BURN THE PRIEST - Legion: XX - a collection of songs reflecting the greatness of the classic punk, hardcore, crossover and noise artists that influenced them in their formative years, executed with their signature modern sound.

Legion: XX features tracks originally performed by Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Quicksand, Ministry, Bad Brains, Melvins, S.O.D., The Accused, Big Black, and Richmond punk band Sliang Laos. Produced with Josh Wilbur at the helm, Legion: XX exhibits BURN THE PRIEST in their true element.

Following up on the surprise release of their cover of THE ACCUSED's "Inherit The Earth" last month, the band is releasing another blistering track from Legion: XX - a charging cover of BIG BLACK's "Kerosene". Listen now below.

"BIG BLACK is a very important band to me," says vocalist Randy Blythe. "When I was 12 and first listening to punk rock, I thought all punk came from England - but then through skating, I got into BLACK FLAG and BAD BRAINS. I soon discovered this super-smart American punk rock - very caustic, and deeply sardonic about the murky side of the human experience. That got me into Steve Albini's future bands SHELLAC and RAPEMAN - and all the noisy smart punk rock on labels like AmRep and Touch & Go. "Kerosene" was one of their biggest songs, if they even had one. It speaks to small-town boredom."

Legion: XX will be released on May 18, 2018 via Epic Records in celebration of BURN THE PRIEST's upcoming 20th anniversary. Pre-orders and merch bundles are available now via http://burn-the-priest.com and fans can stream "Inherit The Earth" and "Kerosene" here: http://btp.lnk.to/legionxx. On street date, a 7" vinyl version of "Inherit the Earth" featuring a B-side of "In the Meantime" (originally performed by HELMET), will also be available.

LAMB OF GOD may be one of the biggest bands in modern metal, but they will never forget where they came from. Mark Morton (guitar), John Campbell (bass), and Chris Adler (drums) formed the first incarnation of the band, BURN THE PRIEST, in the winter of 1994 after meeting four years earlier as students at Virginia Commonwealth University. Less than a year later, in the summer of 1995, they met vocalist Randy Blythe before adding Chris Adler's brother, Willie Adler (guitar), prior to transitioning to LAMB OF GOD - and the rest is global metal history.

The tracks on Legion: XX are performed with the unmistakable precision that has kept LAMB OF GOD vital for two decades, but ultimately harks back to the raw, punk-driven sound first explored by four unsuspecting college students and a line cook-turned-vocalist in their beginnings as heavy music giants.

Legion: XX track listing:

  • "Inherit The Earth" (originally performed by The Accused)
  • "Honey Bucket" (originally performed by Melvins)
  • "Kerosene" (originally performed by Big Black)
  • "Kill Yourself" (originally performed by S.O.D.)
  • "I Against I" (originally performed by Bad Brains)
  • "Axis Rot" (originally performed by Sliang Laos)
  • "Jesus Built My Hotrod" (originally performed by Ministry)
  • "One Voice" (originally performed by Agnostic Front)
  • "Dine Alone" (originally performed by Quicksand)
  • "We Gotta Know" (originally performed by Cro-Mags)
Beginning May 10th, LAMB OF GOD will tour as support on SLAYER's final world tour, North American legs one and two. LAMB OF GOD will also perform select one-off festival dates, as well as headline shows featuring support from BEHEMOTH and NAPALM DEATH. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now at www.lamb-of-god.com.
