Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe freed after 38 days in Czech jail

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been released from Czech jail after spending 38 days behind bars. The singer was being held on suspicion of manslaughter after he pushed a fan off a stage in Prague two years ago, allegedly resulting in the man’s death. Blythe had been held for over a month as prosecutors challenged his bail requirements. In the end, he paid $400,000, and eventually he will have to return to the Czech Republic to stand trial.

Blythe is reportedly now on his way back to the U.S., where Lamb Of God will perform at Knotfest Aug. 17 in Council Bluffs, Iowa and Aug. 18 in Somerset, Wisconsin. The band is also thinking about doing a fall tour after having to cancel its recent dates with Dethklok and Gojira.
