Come one, come all, to preview the new blockbuster - ahem, album - from the world's favorite hard rock monsters, LORDI, who are set to add the next chapter to their spooky history. Today, the quintet announces their eighteenth studio album, Screem Writers Guild, scheduled to see release on March 31st via their new label home, Atomic Fire Records.

Its title -- a "LORDIfied" play on words -- is a reference to the “Screen Writers Guild", an association of Hollywood screenplay writers (1920s to 1950s), yet there is no doubt that LORDI's musical version is much louder and fiercer. "The record itself isn't a real concept album, but it obviously plays with the overall cinematic theme," says Mr. Lordi.

The news of the release is accompanied by the unveiling of the track “Lucyfer Prime Evil” alongside a lyric video, drawn by Kaarle and scripted and edited by mastermind Mr. Lordi himself.

Mr. Lordi explains, "This is the first chance for the fans to hear our new guitar player Kone in action on a record. He is doing a pretty lengthy guitar solo on the track, with Hella backing him up by keyboard harmonies here and there. It's also the very first time in LORDI's history that you can actually hear the whole band sing backing vocals on this album. Story-wise, "Lucyfer Prime Evil" gives quite a good example of the themes and lyrical content that await you on the record: it's a horror story… like an eerie horror movie theme song. Although this song isn't really based on any particular horror movie, the conceptual theme of what to expect from the whole album should come across pretty clear."

Screem Writers Guild was produced by Mr. Lordi with Mana and Janne Halmkrona as executive producers. Ilkka Herkman took care of mixing and Pauli Saastamoinen mastered the record. The artwork was also designed by Mr. Lordi himself who has made a name as director for the band's vision since the early '90s.

Founded in 1992 by singer, songwriter, and designer Mr. Lordi, LORDI are one of the major Finnish rock/heavy metal acts of our time. Originally rooted in Rovaniemi (Northern Lapland, Finland), the band achieved their international breakthrough after winning the Eurovision Song Contest with their hit song “Hard Rock Hallelujah” in 2006.

  Since then, the unconventional troop has rocked their way into the spotlight of Europe with charm, unforgettable tunes, and elaborate monster costumes, and have become an integral part of the lineups of globally recognized festivals such as Wacken Open Air (DE) and Masters of Rock (CZ) among others.
