Dead Lord to release new EP “Dystopia” on March 11th, 2022; European tour announced!


Swedish Hard Rockers DEAD LORD have announced the details for their upcoming EP release, “Dystopia“! A continuation and closing chapter for the band’s 2020 full-length LP, “Surrender,” the “Dystopia” EP starts off where that record ended, with the title track serving as a front bookend. The remainder of its tracklisting features a collection of cover versions from acts like D-A-D (“Sleeping My Day Away“), WINTERHAWK (“Ace In The Hole“), MOON MARTIN (“Hands Down“), and Rory Gallagher (“Moonchild“), before closing out with the Swedish version of “Letter From Allen St.” The “Dystopia” EP, which features front cover artwork by Juan Machado, will see a March 11th, 2022 release via Century Media Records.

Speaking on their new EP, DEAD LORD guitarist and vocalist Hakim Krim finds the following words:

“Wax is the only thing that’s eternal! We know this as well as do you. So at last, here’s our latest single-gone-ep release, for you to enjoy. 6 tracks of something new, something old, something borrowed and something ice cold. A couple of unreleased tracks, homages to our fellow rockateers, if you will, along with some nuggets previously only digitally released, finally make their way to a face melting platter of rocking grooves. So even in the most dystopian of potential futures, where computers have long since lost to the nuclear storms, your record player will keep spinning. And rock will prevail!“
