"We come in peace, but make no mistake - we are coming in full effect, & we are coming to stand with you."

Randy Blythe, the vocalist for heavy metal band Lamb of God, has announced that he's forgoing the warm waters of Virginia and North Carolina for his time off touring to join water protectors against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

Blythe posted on Instagram saying that he is "a true son of the South Eastern Coast of the United States" but he was giving up time he would usually spend surfing and fishing between tours to drive down and help protectors.

"As a surfer, I know that all of our planet's water is connected," Blythe wrote, "and that you cannot poison a river without it eventually leading to the sea."

"I am going because there are people trying to stop a river from being poisoned, & they need firewood, coffee, wool blankets, winter sleeping bags, & strong hands that know how to swing an ax- I have those things, so I am driving them there."

Blythe said he would be traveling along with a Native American friend: "We come in peace, but make no mistake - we are coming in full effect, & we are coming to stand with you."


On January 5, 2012, Blythe announced that he would be running for President of the United States via a blog entry entitled "I want to be The Big Cheese"
