Lamb of God is wasting no time getting back on the road now that frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted of all charges in Czech court. The band has announced a new tour as well as a four day retreat in upstate New York to get real close and intimate with the band.

Here is the retreat description from the press release:

The band announces today the Metal on the Mountain retreat July 15th through 19th to be held at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. The weeklong retreat, which is limited to 170 fans, will feature activities aimed at musicians and non musicians alike. The curriculum, created by the band, will include guitar and drum clinics with Mark Morton, Willie Adler, and Chris Adler as well as group instruction, songwriting sessions and competitions, nightly jam sessions with the band and fans, band Q & A, the premiere of the LAMB OF GOD feature film scheduled for a fall theatrical release, and a full band concert the final night of the retreat. Long time band album designer Ken Adams will discuss the creation of LAMB OF GOD album and t-shirt designs and band tour manager and sound man Brian Griffin will instruct fans on the art of mixing a live metal show. Non-musical activities will include motorcycle excursions with bassist John Campbell, a seminar on primitive fire building by Randy Blythe, and a casino night. Also, all of the fans will enjoy all of the amenities available at the Full Moon Resort. For more information on the Metal on the Mountain retreat, go to metalonthemountain.com.

Whoa, sounds like a great way to spend a summer vacation. Hanging out with Lamb of God, learning about their musical process and seeing a new documentary? Pretty promising. As for the tour, it's hitting secondary markets, so these are places the band might not usually tour, but it sucks for a dude like me in New York, although it's hard to complain with the ample amount of shows that come through here. The band have a MONSTER lineup of openers including Decapitated and Terror (appearing through June 10th) and then The Acacia Strain taking over for the remainder of the tour.
