A New Era Of LULLACRY Has Begun

Guitarist Sami Vauhkonen of the Finnish female-fronted heavy rock outfit LULLACRY has issued the following update:

"It's been a while since the last update from the LULLACRY camp.

"After a hard and complicated fourth album, we took some time off. In 2008 we were ready to record some new material, with a new interesting record deal with quite a big German label. Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, MOONSPELL, APOCALYPTICA) was going to be the producer for that album. But then, suddenly, just before the studio, without any warning, we lost the connection to the label. After a couple of months, I read from the newspapers that they went bankrupt.

"F**k that.

"Now, when I look back, I can say that it was a blessing in disguise. Compared to the new songs, the older material was not as good. It wasn't the right time, I guess..

"Now it's a fresh new start.

"I've written some killer songs and I must say that a new era of LULLACRY has begun!

"We are currently recording a couple of those songs and we'll put them online as soon as possible.

"Stay tuned and rock with LULLACRY!

"We'll play live at Dante's Highlight, Helsinki, on Saturday, July 24, 2010. Come and check out the new songs!"

LULLACRY's fourth studio album, "Vol. 4", was released in the U.S. in February 2006 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Astia Studios with Anssi Kippo (CHILDREN OF BODOM, ENTWINE) and at Finnvox Studio with Mikko Karmila (NIGHTWISH, STRATOVARIUS).

LULLACRY's first single off the album, "Stranger in You", entered the Finnish single chart at position No. 16 upon its release in July 2005. The title cut was backed by a cover of KISS' "I Stole Your Love".

LULLACRY's video for the song "King of Pain" (taken from "Vol. 4") can be viewed below.
