I was perusing the web looking up some bands that I had not seen in quite a while and ended up on the page for the band Lordi who as luck would have it, had just announced a new and exciting tour for the USA that would be coming in 2017. Considering we are in July at the moment, its hard to even imagine 2017 as something to be paying attention to but there we go. I’ve embedded the bands official statement along with the poster and some biography information since I am sure a lot of you readers do not know what to expect from this particular band. Here we go.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, a long awaited North American tour is now reality!! Lordi Monstour will travel over seas in 2017, starting in Vancouver Canada 2nd of February. Check out the tour dates and join the monstrous party in your city!”
Lordi is a Finnish hard rock and melodic heavy metal band, originally formed in 1992 by the band’s lead singer, songwriter, visual art designer and costume maker, Mr Lordi. The band is known for their monstrous look and the horror elements in the stage performance and music videos. With catchy songs and screaming riffs, the horrific lyrics will stick in your mind whether you like it or not. Lordi have been touring actively since 2002 and they will release their eighth full length album MONSTEREOPHONIC in September 2016. The album introduces two very different sides of the band, traditional hard rocking side Theaterror, and thematic, modern and heavy riffing side Demonarchy – something we have never heard from these monsters before. Mr. Lordi (vocals), Mr. Amen (guitar), Mr. Ox (bass), Mr. Mana (drums), Ms. Hella (keyboards)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since the venues are not yet listed in full I’m going to suggest that you keep a regular monitor on the bands Official Site (linked below) and their Facebook which can be found over there as well. It’s been a hell of a long time since Lordi and his own Metal Kaiju have invaded our lands and unless I am wrong about this, I think it was around 2008 that we last caught them. Mr. Lordi is a sight to behold for sure and he is not a character to be trifled with so you best be on point for this terrifying Hard Rock foray. If you are a fan already you can let me know how this news hits you and if you are among the curious you can simply tell me why. That’s all I have for now, so back to the regular course of the day stuff. I will see you next time.
