Finnish monster rockers LORDI launched their new album, "Deadache", with a special performance last night (Friday, October 31) at the 700-capacity Tavastia club in Helsinki, Finland. This was the first time LORDI played on the stage of what is said to be Finland's most famous rock club.
Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below. More clips are available at this location.

LORDI will be the featured musical guests on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" airing on Thursday night, November 6 at 12:35 a.m. (technically Friday morning).
LORDI and reactivated California metallers LIZZY BORDEN will team up for a U.S. tour in November. Also appearing on the bill is STOLEN BABIES.
LORDI's fourth studio album, "Deadache", was released in the U.S. on October 28. The Nino Laurenne-produced CD, much like its predecessors, is catchy, melodic hard rock, but this time around there is a rougher edge to the music.
Japan's WeROCK City has posted a seven-minute interview with LORDI frontman Mr. Lordi and drummer Kita conducted during the band's recent promotional visit to Japan. They talk about their new costume designs, new album "Deadache" and the experience of meeting their rock idols KISS and ALICE COOPER for the first time when they shared the stage with them at the Rock2Wgtn festival in New Zealand this past March.
