'In the next five years, there will definitely be a new Lamb of God record,' Campbell said.

"We're gonna put out some records on the same rough schedule that we always do," Campbell told host Eddy Torres during the interview transcribed by Blabbermouth.

"We put out a record, tour the s**t out of it, take a little time back, start working on another one, record it, tour the shit out of it. So, yeah, there's definitely – we are still alive and kicking, and there will be more records. In the next five years, there will definitely be a new Lamb of God record. I don't think I'm giving away any secrets with that."

The band's most recent studio album Omens came out in October 2022. That record was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles. Campbell hopes to return to the space for the upcoming LP.

"That place was badass," he said. "But we'll see."

Lamb of God was formed in Richmond, Virginia, in 1994. The band was initially called Burn the Priest.

The album update on Tuesday came after Lamb of God announced a co-headlining tour with Mastodon to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its album Ashes of the Wake. Mastodon's acclaimed record Leviathan also came out in August 2004.

Both records are considered landmarks in the new wave of American heavy metal, a diverse subgenre that dominated the U.S. throughout the 2000s.

The trek will start in Grand Prairie, Texas, on July 19 and end in Omaha on Aug. 31.

Earlier this month, the bands teased the announcement by sharing a brief collection of vintage interview clips on social media.

'I don't think I'm giving away any secrets with that,' the bassist said.

The thrash legend recently revealed the project's lineup, which includes Death Angel vocalist Mark Osegueda, longtime Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph, former Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders and former Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel.
