MONSTEREOPHONIC (Theaterror Vs. Demonarchy)
July 13, 2016
The new era is about to begin soon! The album and song titles and the new outfits has been revealed!

MONSTEREOPHONIC (Theaterror Vs. Demonarchy)

The new album introduces two very different sides of the band.

The “A side” of the album, Theaterror, is a damn catchy collection of traditional hard rocking Lordi songs. The riffs and obscene words of “Hug you Hard Core” will stick in your mind forever – whether you like it or not.

The thematic “B-side”, Demonarchy, tells the story of The Undead Son, The Bloodsucking Count, The She-Wolf and The Witch. Musically Demonarchy represents Lordi more modern than ever. Highly complex song structures and aggressive in-your-face riffing is something we have never heard from these monsters before.

01. SCG8 : One Message Waiting
02. Let's Go Slaughter He-Man (I Wanna Be The Beast-Man In The Masters Of The Universe)
03. Hug You Hardcore
04. Down With The Devil
05. Mary Is Dead
06. Sick Flick
07. None For One
08. SCG VIII : Opening Scene

11. Heaven Sent Hell On Earth

New Lordi album out in September!
June 11, 2016
It seems confirmed that the new Lordi studio album will be released in September! And right after that will follow European Monstour, starting in October 1st!

The new album will be kind of split-album. The first six songs of the upcoming album are classic Lordi style but the second half is conceptual. The last six songs together makes one story and they are more progressive and like 8 minutes long. At the moment the album is being mixed and Mr L is working his ass off with the new mask and outfits. Like the album, the new masks and outfits of each member will be split in half too.

Check out new interview with Mr L to find out more!

May 23, 2016
It's been 10 years since Lordi's victory of Eurovision Song Contest with Hard Rock Hallelujah. The band is going to release a T-shirt to celebrate the song. Mr L also made an appearance during the ESC semifinals of this year. In the grand finals Mr L, Mana and Amen appeared in the interval act.

Mr L's Arockalypse is at the moment in Stockholm and can be found in the official ABBA museum.

In Finland, the LORDI SMASH exhibition is still open until June 3rd in Kemi's Comic Exhibition (Valtakatu 22, Kemi). There can be found TMD outfits of Mr L and Amen, Arockalypse outfits of OX and Awa and for the first time, Otus' outfit is also on display. The exhibition also contains some artwork and memorabilia. On 17th June 2016 the ExtraLORDInary exhibition will be opened in Helsinki.

Finnish media has been excited about the 10th anniversary of Finland's one and only ESC victory. Here's a nice article for Finns where Mr L has been shown some news from 2006 and he tells his very own thoughts about the whole stuff of the glory days.

Also, some LORDI Army news: New Local Army has been created for UK and Ireland! Check out all the local fan clubs here.

Last night Lordi opened the Finnish Eurovision finals as special guest, celebrating the 10 years anniversary of Finland's first and last victory in the contest. The band started with their classic winning song, Hard Rock Hallelujah... but in the middle of the song we got to taste some new stuff and real Lordi show!

Mr L's message on the forum
February 24, 2016
Mr L has posted a message on the official Monsterboard and gave us some info about the plans of 2016 and the media silence lately:

Hi there,

Well, I tell you a little something. Yep, our schedules changed dramatically. Sorry about the radio silence. Not that it is anybodys business really, but there was an unforeseen family tragedy in my personal life as my father passed away in November, only few weeks before the studio was already booked and shit. So, everything was put on hold and cancelled and now we are somewhat at least 9-10 weeks behind from our original plan. But we are still gonna come out with a new album this year, just a bit later than what we originally had in mind. At the moment theres 34 songs to choose from, and 20 of them demoed already.
We will let u know when theres something to actually be let known.
Ps... Finns, watch tv this weekend ;)

LORDI Army got new logo!
January 10, 2016
We are preparing for the new Lordi year 2016 by upgrading our logo to brand new! The main idea of the logo of LORDI Army has stayed the same since the beginning, 2008. The previous one we used from 2012 to 2016. Now we tried to come up with some new style but still keep it recognizable to the style of LORDI Army.

Stay tuned for more Monsterican news from the Lordi vaults!
