Lamb Of God have released an statement addressing the tragedy that occurred aboard their inaugural inaugural Headbangers Boat cruise. While the ship was en-route back to Miami, a 41-year old man went overboard, and despite all efforts of a search and rescue operation that lasted several hours, he was not found.

“Thank you to everyone who joined us on the inaugural Headbangers Boat. It was truly one of the most special celebrations of heavy metal, bringing together artists spanning decades of music.”

“We want to thank every single band, host, comedian, staff member and of course fan who made the trek to Miami and on-board with us. Overall, it was truly one of the most positive and fun atmospheres we’ve been a part of.”

“It was shocking that a joyous occasion could so quickly turn tragic. While we don’t know all of the specifics, we know every single person on that boat is part of our family, and we witnessed everyone onboard experience grief at the loss of one of our own. We couldn’t have been more proud of how the metal community on board rallied together to support each other and celebrate heavy metal in the only way we know how. This music community truly is just that – a community.”

“Thank you to Mastodon, Testament, Hatebreed, Gwar, Municipal Waste, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Lacuna Coil, Gatecreeper, Fit For An Autopsy, Vio-lence, Malevolence, Bleed From Within, Dying Wish, Jesse Leach, Jose Mangin, Riki Rachtman, Frank Castillo, Steve Furey and everyone else involved in making this inaugural event what it was.”

Plans for a follow-up Headbangers Boat 2024 cruise are already underway, with the first batch of bands already confirmed. For further details, or to join the pre-sale, you can go HERE.
