Lamb of God was presented this past Tuesday, May 17, 2016 with RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) gold certification plaques for their breakout 2004 Epic Records release, Ashes Of The Wake. The album was certified gold this past February for sales in excess of 500,000. The plaques were presented by Epic Records Senior Vice President of Marketing Scott Carter to the entire band at the Paramount in Huntington, NY just prior to the band’s sold out performance.

Guitarist Mark Morton offers his thoughts on the RIAA certification:

“Wow, a gold record in the US! These types of milestones always leave me astounded. When we started this band in a little Richmond, VA basement, we honestly never even dreamed that we would tour all over the world, see so many places and reach so many people with our music. I remain amazed and humbled when I think about the experiences and opportunities I’ve had the chance to be a part of over the course of our career. It is nothing short of an honor to know that our words and music have touched so many people’s lives. Thank You to the LAMB OF GOD fans… each and every one of you. While this achievement is very special to us, even more cherished is the opportunity to have an outlet for our music and a loyal fan base all over the world that makes us feel at home everywhere we go. Thank you!”
