Mark Morton, lead guitar player for metal heavyweights Lamb Of God, has been forced to sit out the band’s upcoming UK tour because of a family emergency. Six string extraordinaire Paul Waggoner of prog metallers Between The Buried And Me has been confirmed as his replacement for the jaunt, with frontman Randy Blythe telling us via Facebook;

‘You may have noticed Mr. Mark Morton is not here with us tonight. He had a family emergency, so he had to stay home. It’s family first for this band. We apologize, but he had to be with his family.
