Finnish hard rock sensation LULLACRY have just been added to this year's Milwaukee Metalfest line-up. This will mark the group's first appearance in the U.S.

Guitarist Sami Vauhkonen had the following to say regarding the band's live performance:

"LULLACRY is about the sweat and action! There must be something to look at on the stage. Also, you have to work hard with the band. You have to know what you want to sound like. It's bullshit if artist say that only amateurs rehearse! I think you must have guts to put your songs out on the stage with the different arrangement if needed. Now we've been touring in Finland. In the summer we'll do festivals basically in Finland, including a one-off festival gig in Milwaukee. In the autumn we've planned to do an European tour. I hope that we can do a tour someday in North America. It would great."

LULLACRY will release their new single, "Alright Tonight", on May 23 through Spinefarm Records. "Alright Tonight" will be backed by a re-recorded version of the title track from the group's 1999 debut album, "Sweet Desire", featuring new vocalist Tanja Lainio, who replaced Tanja Kemppainen (currently in SOULGRIND) last summer. "Alright Tonight" comes off the group's third album, "Crucify My Heart", available in North America through Century Media Records.
