Lordi To Release “Lordiversity” Box Set In November, Premiere “Believe Me” Video

Lordi will be releasing a new box set, titled “Lordiversity,” on November 26. The effort, which will be available as a seven-CD box set and as a seven-vinyl box set, will feature seven new albums including: “Skelectric Dinosaur,” “SuperFlyTrap,” “The Masterbeast From The Moon,” “Abusement Park,” “Humanimals,” “Abracadaver,” and “Spooky Sextravaganza Spectacular.” You can find a video for the first single, “Believe Me,” below. Mr. Lordi commented:

“Within a week when the ‘Killectour’ was cut short in March 2020, I realized we’re gonna have to use the sudden extra time somehow. It was clear that it is the time to start planning the new album, even though ‘Killection’ was released not even two months before. I was thinking that the most boring thing we could do after ‘Killection’ is to do another basic Lordi album. And I was very much enjoying the different styles of songwriting, recording and production on ‘Killection’, but another boring idea would have been to do a part 2. Since ‘Killection’ is a fictional compilation album from a fictional back catalog that doesn’t exist, I got the idea that the only thing that could top that is to record and release that fictional back catalog. And until Halloween 2021 the fictional back catalog will be no longer fictional, it actually will exist… at least for the most part. My original idea was to release 10 albums, but the label said that is insane. But seven is a number they felt that is somewhat sane, hahahaha!”

Lordi have revealed that they are planning to release seven new albums in October. The records will serve as the “fictional back catalogue” that songs were pulled from for the band’s 2020 “fictional compilation album” “Killection.”

Mr. Lordi, commented:

The band also added:

“The albums will sound all different from each other, they’re all in different styles and fictional eras in the ‘Killection’ timeline. Five of the seven albums are already done, by the way, and number six is well on the way.”

Lordi To Release New Album “Killection” In January

“Killection is a fictional compilation album. It contains songs that Lordi would have written between the early 70’s through the mid-90’s. The compilation contains one “brand new” song from 2019 as well, cause that’s somehow always typical for compilations.”
