Courtesy of some narrow-minded, ill-informed individuals, Lamb of God have been forced to cancel their show in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that was due to take place on September 28th. You don’t need to get me started on the type of people that would force this to have happened. I’ll let the band’s statement say it for me:
As widely reported, Lamb of God’s concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia scheduled for September 28th has been cancelled by the government who refused to issue a permit for the show even though the concert had been on sale and had sold over 1500 tickets.
It is very evident (and a bit frustrating) that the groups, parties and powers that have taken the most offense to our music and lyrics, have themselves only made a passing glance at the content and meanings of those songs. We would invite anyone offended by our music to engage in a discussion regarding the true motivations behind our work, especially before publicly slandering us based on assumptions and shallow misinterpretation.
We sincerely apologize to our amazing fans in Malaysia for the cancellation. Many thanks to all who have spoken out in support of us through this.
We will still be playing the shows scheduled in New Zealand, Australia, and Thailand.
