Lamb Of God Gig Banned In Malaysia, Band Respond
Lamb Of God‘s planned concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on September 28 has been cancelled by the Malaysian government, who refused to issue a permit for the show even though it had sold over 1,500 tickets.
It is believed that the show was pulled on religious grounds
“It is very evident (and a bit frustrating) that the groups, parties and powers that have taken the most offense to our music and lyrics, have themselves only made a passing glance at the content and meanings of those songs,” says guitarist Mark Morton. “We would invite anyone offended by our music to engage in a discussion regarding the true motivations behind our work, especially before publicly slandering us based on assumptions and shallow misinterpretation.
We sincerely apologize to our amazing fans in Malaysia for the cancellation. Many thanks to all who have spoken out in support of us.”
The band will still play planned shows in New Zealand, Australia and Thailand.
