LORDI have confirmed they will be releasing a new album which is set to be available to purchase in 2023, and this has coincided with another seismic deal.
The Finnish rock band were recently signed up by Atomic Records, and they have been working hard in the studio to wrap up their latest album.
20 years ago, Lordi brought out the album ‘Get Heavy’, but the latest album, which is set to be unveiled in the spring, will be a delight for the band’s most avid fans.
Teasing details of the release, LORDI said: “We are damn proud to announce LORDI are joining the impressive ranks of Atomic Fire Records!
“We’re quite psyched up to stir the pots with Markus Wosigen, Flori Milz and their fantastic team.
“Leaving AFM Records (thanks a million, Jochen) was not an easy decision for us since the support there was always great!
“Stay tuned monster maniacs, the next era is all set and ready and waiting just right around the corner.”
Last year, LORDI released seven new studio albums, and they have been experimenting with different genres during that time, including hard rock, disco, progressive rock, and heavy metal.
Yet it seems amazing to think that it was over 16 years ago that LORDI stormed to Eurovision glory, and off the back of that, they played live at the MTV European Music awards, and they secured a hatful of lucrative promotions.
Indeed, LORDI have transcended pop culture, and their influence hasn’t been limited to the stage. Rather, you can find a LORDI-themed restaurant in Finland, and they even have their own designated slot entitled LORDI Reel monsters. Set in what appears to be a graveyard, the music-themed slot can be accessed at Casushi and many other top free spins in UK casino sites.
Most notably, the departure of band member Amen was a bit of a wrench, considering his long service to LORDI, and he will be sorely missed.
Nevertheless, new albums and record deals show that LORDI haven’t slipped off into the sunset just yet, and they want to please their fans. It will be fascinating to see what kind of reception the new album receives, and given what we know about LORDI, it could be an album to remember.
