Lamb of God and Kreator Join Forces to Release and Donate Proceeds from “State of Unrest” in Honor of Riley Gale
Next week marks the start of the previously postponed Kreator and Lamb of God0 ‘State of Unrest’ European tour. Now years in the making, the tour was originally supposed to take place in 2020 (thanks COVID) and Power Trip were supposed to open. Sadly, the tour got postponed multiple times and Power Trip frontman Riley Gale passed away.
Now with the pandemic (kinda sorta) under control and the dates aligning, both bands are gearing up to fulfill their engagements. To celebrate the coming tour and to honor Gale’s life, the two bands have come together to release a collaborative single titled “State of Unrest.”
Lamb of God put out a statement with the song’s release, stating that all proceeds generated by the song will be donated to the Dallas Hope Charities in memory of Gale.
“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.”
