Lamb of God and Sixthman, creators of unforgettable festivals on sand and at sea for more than two decades, have announced the first-ever Headbangers Boat, sailing October 31 – November 4, 2023, from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas aboard the Norwegian Pearl.
Lamb of God’s Headbangers Boat will feature live music from sun-up to sundown, across several stages and settings throughout the ship, including two unique shows from Lamb of God, featuring a complete performance of their 2004 landmark third album, Ashes of the Wake, in its entirety. The 5x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band will further honor heavy metal’s past, present, and future by curating a spectacular selection of special guests, including such hard rock icons as Mastodon, Hatebreed, GWAR, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Fit For An Autopsy and Lamb of God’s Mark Morton (Solo Band), with special guest hosts Jose Mangin and Riki Rachtman, Jamey Jasta’s The Jasta Show and more to be announced.
In addition, the fully immersive schedule of events will see members of Lamb of God hosting an array of activities including a Q&A conversation and photography show with vocalist Randy Blythe, a drum-off with drummer Art Cruz, and casino tournament with bassist John Campbell. All guests will receive a signed Lamb of God commemorative item, with a special cabin photo with Lamb of God available exclusively to pre-sale buyers.
“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,” says Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe. “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!”
“A thrash metal cruise vacation to the Bahamas? Hell yea! Headbangers Boat!,” says Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton. “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!“
Beyond the onboard experience, cruisers will have the chance to explore and enjoy Nassau, Bahamas – the ultimate vacationer’s paradise with its laid-back vibes and perfect white-sand beaches, palm trees covered in coconuts and refreshing, crystal-clear waters. Please note: Shore excursions will not be available until 4-6 weeks prior to sailing. Cruisers will be able to book an excursion upon receipt of their official booking number.
The luxurious Norwegian Pearl will provide everything needed to make Lamb of God’s Headbangers Boat the most electrifying cruise vacation ever, with fully stocked bars at (almost) every corner, tasty dining options, the Pool Deck (with multiple hot tubs), Pearl Club Casino, Mandara Spa, Body Waves Fitness Center, Sports Court and much more.

ABOUT LAMB OF GOD:
Hailed as the heroes of new American Heavy Metal by legions of fans around the world, Lamb of God grew from basement shows and grimy DIY venues to arena headliners, beloved with the same devotion as such spiritual forefathers and touring comrades as Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth. Over the course of their career, the Richmond, Virginia-based band has created an unmistakable signature sound, injecting an extreme contemporary aesthetic to shove metal into the new millennium. Lamb of God have made history with such timeless works as 2003’s As the Palaces Burn (named by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”), 2004’s RIAA gold-certified Ashes of the Wake, 2009’s landmark Wrath, 2012’s diverse Resolution and 2015’s explosive VII: Sturm und Drang, the latter three of which debuted in the top 5 on the overall Billboard 200. Among their many accolades, the band has received five GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance” and “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance,” as well as multiple Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards including “Best Live Band,” “Best International Band” and “Best Album.” The band’s most aggressive and ambitious album yet, 2022’s Omens finds Lamb of God as uncompromising as ever before, now as always redefining American metal with each and every move.
