Changes on lordiarmy.webs.com
November 05, 2015
We've made a few changes on the website to keep it possible for us to maintain it perfectly. The stuff from "style" page has been moved under the "Lordi" page. "News" has been taken away from the navigation because it works as our index page and can be found by clicking the LORDI Army logo.

The most notable change is that we are sadly closing the fan club online that has been more or less dead for a long time. It still exists for a few weeks but it will be closed permanently before the end of the year. We have noticed that our FB groups has taken the first place as the community.

Maintaining a server and keeping the domain name is not free and that's the reason we have added a few ads in the website - to get something back. Hope you don't mind and if you use Adblock, we would be glad if you turned it off at least while using LORDI Army.

Stay tuned for the new stuff and remember it's only pretty when it's nasty - All hail the freaks!

Recordings for new studio album starts in December!
September 26, 2015
Mr L has confirmed that Lordi will enter the studio in December to begin recording their 8th studio album for a 2016 release. The band is now preparing for Russian concert while writing new material and doing demos.

"We come up with new songs all the time, we have new material all the time, and we have the positive problem of having anything from 40 to 60 songs that are demoed fully, to choose the 10 to 13 songs that are going to make it to the album. It's nevertheless a problem, even though it's a positive problem, that we write all the time, and there's a lot of material, so why should we be waiting? So it's better to get them out of your system and keep working because that's what we want to do."

He also gave some background details about Lordi's upcoming first shows in Australia:

"It's been over a decade or more where there have been quite a few try outs for that. We've been to New Zealand even though I know it's not that close but looking at it from our side of the planet, it is kind of close. We've been to Japan many times and I know it's not that close but once again [laughs], from our side of the planet it looks like it is close. But it never worked out and this is such a funny coincidence, it's weird how this happened so we as a band are so grateful to this one fan, this one dude who contacted the manager of Soundwave Festival and talked about getting Lordi over there. And he said yeah and the organiser of Soundwave contacted our guitar player Amen and then he got in contact with our booking agency and boom, next thing we're there. So we owe it to that one fan which I am so sad that I don't remember his name, I should have memorised it so I could say his name, but I really want to meet the guy and we are really grateful for that one guy. Because sometimes it only takes just one fan [laughs], to make things happen. I know it sounds like a bad movie script but it's exactly what happened so that guy had more power than all these booking agencies from all the years that tried to do it so many times."

There's also a merchandise special offer in Lordi Web-Shop! In the period from Sept. 20th til Oct 31st they offer a special 20% discount on ALL items (no CD or DvD) you order. Check our shop and get your favourite LORDI designs.

Little news from Hella
February 21, 2015
There's currently six monsters on the tour! Hella has revealed the reason for the new dress addition in her outfit. She wrote the following on her Facebook page earlier this week:

If you have been wondering why Hella has become chubby and is wearing an extra piece of clothing... I have a baby monster growing inside of me, nearly 5 months old. I will be playing gigs as long as I can, maybe just a little less wild on stage ;)

So Hella will of course take a break for the baby and will be temporarily replaced for the live shows if the band won't take a little break too.

Someones might noticed that there's a little tribute for Hella's situation in the current stage show:
