Comments Off on LORDI – cinematic ‘Dead Again Jayne’ music video Screem Writers Guild out now; new album touring cycle kicking off 

Clear the manège, let the ultimate LORDI show begin! »Screem Writers Guild,« a new beast of an album by the beloved Finnish hard rock monster squad, has been unleashed through Atomic Fire Records today and to even win the bravest listeners to their side, the group have also launched a cinematic music video for opening track ‘Dead Again Jayne,’ once again scripted, directed and edited by Mr. Lordi himself.

Dealing with a beloved, patched-up lady who suddenly isn’t that dead anymore, the song is dominated by a morbid, »Frankenstein«-ish atmosphere.

Head over to YouTube to get seduced by the aforementioned catchy sing-along hymn:

Tonight, LORDI will coincidentally appear at Aria Complex (San Gwann, MT) to kick off another touring cycle and to also premiere their new musical play on stage for the first time. But the performance is only a warm-up for Mr. Lordi and his crew since it will be followed by a massive European arena tour alongside SABATON and BABYMETAL in April/May as well as select summer festival gigs and a few Austrian shows in autumn.

Take a look at the band’s current itinerary below and keep your eyes peeled for more monstrous shows which will be added to their schedule from time to time.

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

Its title is a reference (and a “LORDIfied” play on words) to the “Screen Writers Guild,” an association of screen writers in Hollywood (’20s to ’50s), 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.
