Blythe took the time to update his Instagram with the photo below, and this message:
"I apologize for my absence. I had an unexpectedly lengthy layover in the Czech Republic.
This lovely young woman named Lia came to the NYC airport just to say, 'Randy, I'm glad you're home'. WHAT A SWEETHEART! Her boyfriend Gary had to work so we called him on his cell. WE HAVE AWESOME FANS! How rad to be greeted by one for my layover in NYC - soon I'll be home in RVA (Richmond, Virginia).
Thanks for your good thoughts and prayers... I'll release a statement soon. Yee-haw and God bless the U.S.A.!!!!!!!!!"
Blythe was held in custody in the Czech Republic after being arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by Czech police at the Prague airport on Wednesday, June 27th. It is alleged that during a May 24th, 2010 Lamb Of God concert, Blythe pushed a 19-year-old fan, who had climbed onstage, back into the audience. The fan lapsed into a coma and died of a bleeding in the brain fourteen days later.
Although Lamb Of God has cancelled their summer co-headline tour with DETHKLOK, the band has agreed to play SLIPKNOT's Knotfest shows on August 17th in Council Bluffs, Iowa and August 18th in Somerset, Wisconsin.
Described as "an apocalyptic underworld where firebreathers, nightmarish creatures on stilts, fire and percussive light, and stunning visuals set the stage for an intoxicating and unforgettably sinister concert experience," Knotfest will feature performances from:
LAMB OF GOD
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN

Lamb Of God is currently targeting October 26th as the start date for a US tour. Dates and cities will be released as soon as possible. Randy will be making a public statement discussing his time in Prague and thanking fans worldwide for their support in the next week.
