Lamb Of God have announced the inaugural Headbangers Boat cruise festival. The boat will depart from the Norwegian Pearl in Miami on 31 October 2023 before stopping at the Bahamas and returning on 4 November 2023.

The band will perform two sets, one of which will be a performance of their 2004 opus, Ashes Of The Wake, in its entirety. Accompanying Lamb Of God for a stacked line-up is Mastadon, GWAR, Hatebreed, Fit For An Autopsy, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, and a solo performance from Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton, with more to be announced. 

Fans will have the opportunity to have a Q&A conversation and photography show with Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe, participate in a drum-off with drummer Art Cruz, and get involved in a casino tournament with bassist John Campbell.

All ticket holders will receive a signed Lamb Of God commemorative item and a special cabin photo of the band, which will be available exclusively to people who buy pre-sale tickets.

"Imagine the sheer horror on the faces of all the happy families aboard, let's say, another cruise when they look across the sea and see GWAR decapitating someone on the main deck of a big-ass boat filled with a few thousand crazed metalheads," Blythe said in a press release. "If there's any better reason to go on the Headbangers Boat, I can't think of one…well, that and all our other friends we've played shows on land with that will be joining us. It's gonna be a party for sure — see y'all somewhere in the Atlantic!"

Morton quipped, "A thrash metal cruise vacation to the Bahamas? Hell yea! Headbangers Boat! We're stoked about this one y'all! Join us in a celebration of the heavy metal movement that these bands and these fans have been building for the last two decades. Lots of incredible bands, with some more surprises announcing soon. LFG!"
