Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton (pictured) has shared a warning on social media about the band’s live performances that may trigger fans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition that can develop in individuals who’ve experienced or seen a traumatic event.
“As Lamb of God has grown in popularity, we’ve invested more and more into our production. As of late, this has included pyro, flash bombs and concussion bombs,” Morton wrote in his statement.
“We are aware that many of our fans have served in the armed forces and that some unfortunately experience combat-related PTSD,” Morton continued. “The purpose of this post is… to give you a proper heads-up so that you can at least be aware coming in that we will be using those effects.
“If you’re reading this and someone you know should know this before coming to the show, please spread the word.”
Lamb Of God is currently on tour.
