LAMB OF GOD and KREATOR have debuted their collaborative song, “State Of Unrest”. The track is being released yesterday (Friday, February 10th) to promote the two groups’ European tour of the same name.

When the initial “State Of Unrest” tour was postponed in March 2020 due to the global pandemic, Mark Morton (LAMB OF GOD) and Mille Petrozza (KREATOR) connected and began working on a song together. After the music was completed, they enlisted Riley Gale (POWER TRIP) to sing the vocal. POWER TRIP was intended to be the original opening band of the “State Of Unrest” tour. Tragically, Gale passed away in August 2020 before he was able to record his vocal on the song.

After the further postponement of the “State Of Unrest” tour, LAMB OF GOD and KREATOR came together to finish and record the song with D. Randall Blythe (LAMB OF GOD) and Petrozza on vocals. Proceeds from the single will be donated to Dallas Hope Charities in Gale’s name, an organization he was involved with and cared deeply about.

LAMB OF GOD comment: “It’s been a long time coming and now that the State of Unrest tour is about to kick off, we think it’s worthy of a celebration!

We are super proud to unveil a historic, creative collaboration between LAMB OF GOD and KREATOR; the brand new, all original song ‘State Of Unrest’.

As many of you may know, the State of Unrest tour originally included POWER TRIP on the bill. To honor the memory of our friend Riley Gale, all proceeds from the ‘State of Unrest’ single will go to Dallas Hope Charities, a non profit organization who Riley worked closely with, providing shelter & resources to homeless LGBTQ young people in his beloved hometown. We hope you enjoy this special song and we are grateful for your support.”
