“Ahoy, rockers! Last fall, Dead Lord embarked on the quest to rescue rock music once again. We hit the studio for a week of recording. Our good friends OIa Ersfjord and Nicke Andersson were also aboard our ship of rock, steering it towards the land of awesomeness, producing and recording some of the best stuff we’ve done so far. We are now thrilled to tell you that our second album ‘Heads Held High‘ will be out this August through Century Media Records. 10 songs of solid no-bogus, face-melting, twin-guitar, smart-rock action. We will follow up with a lot of touring and even more rocking. See you soon!” Hakim Krim, Dead Lord
Century Media Records are thrilled to announce the signing of Swedish rockers Dead Lord.
The band’s critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Goodbye Repentance‘, was released in 2013 through High Roller Records. The album as well as two 7” EPs (one being a split 7” with Black Trip) gained Dead Lord a lot of attention, both from media and fans of straight forward rock. The band have played festivals such as Rock Hard, Muskelrock, Getaway Rock, Hell’s Pleasure, Turock Open Air, Hell Over Hammaburg and have also toured with Imperial State Electric, Noctum and most recently Wolf.
Philipp Schulte, A&R at Century Media, comments on the signing as follows: “We are more than happy to finally have Dead Lord on Century Media. Their brilliant debut album, the excellent 7” EPs and the awesome (or better: AWESOME!!!) live shows have made Dead Lord’s mission very clear: They are here to rock. And their new album “Heads Held High” surely does rock. Welcome on board!!”
‘Heads Held High‘ will be released in August 2015. More news to be revealed when time is ripe …
