LORD announce tour, and new EP

Lord: The Tyrants Return 2010 Tour
Lord: The Tyrants Return 2010 Tour

Melodic metal favourites LORD have unveiled their latest touring venture, taking them across Australia once again, including trips to the far north, as well as making their way back to Japan for the second year in a row. The band have also announced their latest EP release ‘Return of the Tyrant’ which will be released in the coming months.

Commented LORD main man LT, “We’re finally able to announce the tour dates for the rest of the year. This was a logistical nightmare with so many other high-profile acts touring Australia right now,meant that some places we wanted to get to just weren’t realistic this time around. This tour will also include our run of shows in Japan with DORO and Jaded Heart, which we’re extremely excited about”

“The other great news is we have a new LORD release out soon; an EP entitled ‘Return of the Tyrant’. Anyone who has followed our history knows about Dungeon, the band that spawned LORD after it dissolved in 2005. Dungeon had a popular song called ‘Tarranno Del Mar’ – a fun pirate themed song that LORD still enjoys playing to this day. We felt it was time to revisit the story and write the next part in the saga. The song ‘Return Of The Tyrant’ is full of piratey singalongs and is nearly ten minutes long, so it’s quite an epic! Apart from that, we have some cool cover songs and a whole bunch of cool interpretations of LORD and Dungeon songs, so there’s quite a lot of material for an EP. We’ll be revealing the full track list and cover art really soon.”

LORD was formed from the ashes of DUNGEON who disbanded in 2005 after world tours with the likes of MEGADETH, NIGHTWISH, EDGUY and more, and has since gone on to tour with bands such as QUEENSRYCHE, SAXON, GAMMA RAY, NEVERMORE and released three well-received albums. The band recently released a tongue-in-cheek cover of KYLIE MINOGUE’s “On A Night Like This”, which become an instant success, and must see for many.
