Now, I probably won't be able to make money that easily ever again... But we had a plan to break up around May. We had just signed this record deal and we were going to put out one proper album and then go on a farewell tour, release a proper breaking up statement that could have been really funny, maybe a weird, stupid video. Now, all of that has gone to shit."

According to various media outlets, Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe has been indicted on charges of Manslaughter in Czech Republic following the death of a fan at a concert in Prague in 2010. The fan died from a brain hemorrhage that was allegedly from a head injury at the show, possibly because Blythe pushed him off the stage, Blythe served a five week jail term over the summer before being released. Now, Blythe will return to Czech Republic to clear his name. The bands manager, Larry Mazar, said in a press statement, "After a three month investigation, the prosecutor in the Czech Republic has decided to move forward with an indictment of Randy Blythe on the charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm. Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show. As he has stated previously, Randy intends to go to Prague to defend himself at trial."
