    Most of you guys would have seen this on Facebook or on our mailing lists or whatever, but in case you haven't....

    AUSTRALIAN METALLERS LORD ANNOUNCE NEW COVERS ALBUM “UNDERCOVERS VOL.1” DUE 2 APRIL 2021.

    Pre-orders available now through Bandcamp.


    Long-running metallers LORD have announced their new covers album, “Undercovers Vol. 1” due out 2 April 2021 on Dominus Records. Featuring first single “To the Moon and Back” by Australian Pop Group Savage Garden.

    Bassist Andy explains, “Covers have been a big love of ours since the early days of Dungeon right up to and including now. Over the years in LORD these tracks have ended up on limited edition releases, bonus tracks in isolated parts of the world and other weird and wonderful places. These songs have been scattered over so many different places that even we struggle ourselves to remember where on earth all of these songs can be found.

    While bands around the world continue to navigate these uncertain times, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to release this collection of cover songs, as well as new recordings, to keep the LORD machine moving while we continue to write new music.”

    Andy continues, “UNDERCOVERS VOL. 1 is the first instalment of amassing this ever growing collection of cover tracks that LORD have recorded over the years whether it be in the studio or on the stage. There will be many you’re familiar with and there will also be a few surprises. Of course, we couldn’t help ourselves and decided to record two new cover songs for this release, SAVAGE GARDEN’s “To the Moon and Back” and JUDAS PREIEST’s “Reckless” and we even threw in two covers from LT’s Blackened Angel project. Artwork has been once again created by the talented TRISTAN TAIT and a hand numbered limited edition CD release will celebrate the highlights from Volume 1 of our Undercover journey.”

    Listen to LORD’s single “To the Moon and Back” from the upcoming album, available now on Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music.

    UNDERCOVERS VOL. 1 will be an exclusive 23 track release available on Bandcamp as both a digital release and as various bundle packs that includes a T-shirt, and a CD that is hand-numbered and limited to 500 hand numbered copies only, worldwide.

    Both the CD and streaming platforms will have a limited track listing, with Bandcamp being the exclusive destination to own all 23 tracks, which includes two covers by Lord Tim’s Blackened Angel project, as well as over 2 hours of Andy and LT talking about the stories behind the songs. The entire release clocks in at over 3 hours and 40 minutes. Pre-orders are now open.

    This was such a random cover! Andy was chatting to Darren from SG on Twiitter and talk got around to how good the first album was, then someone said we could do a good metal cover of it, then I go "sure, great song, why not?" and kind of just did it on the spot.... and it came up great! :)

    Nekminnit....

    So yeah, that's a bit good :)

    And yes, collectors will have a good chunk of these covers already, aside from the new recorded ones, and the 2 and a half hours of background Behind the Music chat we do - there's actually a lot of general LORD stuff which is pretty interesting that I don't think a lot of people know that we touch on. I think Andy is doing a cut down version of that for a podcast very soon, so keep an eye out!

    It's selling well though - I reckon there's a good chance we'll nudge the charts again with this release. Fingers crossed! :)

    Listening now boys \m/

    My avatar points to me being guilty of spending more than I should have to get a limited edition (and I still don't have everything!) :D

    This has gone EXCEPTIONALLY well - for a covers album especially. It's going to be interesting to see if we nudge the charts with this one again. :)

    Actually yes, don't forget we have a production company that does everything from music videos to corporate stuff, and we're the preferred videographers for Val Morgan in NSW as well, so there's a very good chance you'll see one of our promos in front of a movie in this state. But there was definitely a big quality kick up with the new gear - being able to shoot in this new format has given us so much more headroom to push what we do way further. :)
