Guitarist Mark Morton of Virginia metallers Lamb Of God is sitting out the band's current European headlining tour due to a "family emergency." Filling in for him is Paul Waggoner, who you might know from progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me. You can catch the band on tour this month in Europe supported by Decapitated and Huntress.

In a statement posted on his Instagram, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe explained Morton's absence: "Our friend Paul 'The Wiz' Waggoner, who plays guitar in the amazing Between The Buried And Me, will be fulfilling stage-left guitar duty this tour. Regrettably, Mark Morton has to stay at home this run due to a family emergency. Lamb Of God has had a pretty rough time with this lately, as both John [Campbell, bass] and one of our crew members (who might as well be band members) had to unexpectedly leave our last tour for the same exact reason.

"Mark is doing just fine, he's ok, but when these things arise, we have no choice but to cancel tour or get a fill in. Life happens, as regrettably a lot of my friends have found out recently - 2014 has started out pretty stressfully for a lot of people I know, but you soldier on and get through it."
