Lordi To Release Seven Albums In October!
The winners of Eurovision Song Contest 2006, Lordi have recently been announced as one of the six former winners to perform as an interval act at Eurovision 2021, but those aren’t the only news which are coming from them.
They were set to tour during 2020 but their “Killectour” was cancelled because of the pandemic so they ended up recording music until they realised that enough material is recorded for seven new albums. Their plan is to release all of the seven new albums in October this year.
So instead of getting their eleventh studio album, Lordi will be releasing all up to their 17th album at the same time which isn’t a thing many artist did in the past. Five of the seven albums are already finished, while sixth is on the way, each one is written in a different style, and it showcases an imagined era to the fictional version of the band.
Within a week when the ‘Killectour’ was cut short in March 2020, I realized we’re gonna have to use the sudden extra time somehow. It was clear that it is the time to start planning the new album, even though ‘Killection’ was released not even two months before. I was thinking that the most boring thing we could do after ‘Killection’ is to do another basic Lordi album. And I was very much enjoying the different styles of songwriting, recording and production on ‘Killection’, but another boring idea would have been to do a part 2. Since ‘Killection’ is a fictional compilation album from a fictional back catalogue that doesn’t exist, I got the idea that the only thing that could top that is to record and release that fictional back catalogue. And until Halloween 2021 the fictional back catalogue will be no longer fictional, it actually will exist… at least for the most part. My original idea was to release 10 albums, but the label said that is insane. But seven is a number they felt that is somewhat sane, hahahaha!
