This morning Lamb of God released their first official statement regarding the situation of Randy Blythe’s arrest. The full statement can be read below. Last week Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic relation to an incident at a 2010 show where Blythe allegedly struck a fan on stage, who later died from the injuries. Blythe is still in the Czech prison as of this writing. The statement ends with a link to a defense fund set up for Blythe.
First of all, thanks to everyone who has reached out in support of Randy and each of us in this terrible situation. It’s noted and very much appreciated.
We have been keeping our heads down and not speaking out due to the fluid nature of the situation and the constantly changing information that even we receive daily.
Within an hour things can do endless 180’s. It’s maddening to try and make heads or tails.
We’re taking the time to speak to you as it has been a significant period of time since this situation began and while nothing is immediately clear to any of us, we are not trying to keep anyone in the dark.
We have reached out and are making use of the resources we have acquired to help our brother who is still detained in Czech jail.
In the two years since, we were never notified of anything related to this incident.
Randy is our brother and we assure you, we are all staying very positive for him, working endlessly behind the scenes to provide any and all assistance possible.
The best we can do is to stay positive and continue to support our friend that we know is innocent.
We know that justice will prevail and we will continue to do our part to support our friend. – LAMB OF GOD
