New Orleans, Louisiana-based rockers LILLIAN AXE have inked a four-album worldwide deal with the Swedish label Blistering Records.
Blistering's U.S. office is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the label is distributed domestically by Ryko.
Commented the band: "While searching for a new label over the past year, LILLIAN AXE was looking for a label who wanted the band to be part of their present and future. Blistering Records proved to be the most aggressive suitors for LILLIAN AXE and that made our decision that much easier to make. Blistering Records wanted LILLIAN AXE and LILLIAN AXE wanted to be part of Blistering Records."
LILLIAN AXE's new CD, entitled "Sad Day On Planet Earth", is described in a press release as "by far [the band's] strongest album, musically speaking. There are so many different-sounding songs that all forms of radio: Active Rock, Mainstream Rock and Metal radio will embrace this album."
"Sad Day On Planet Earth" will contain 14 songs written by guitarist Steve Blaze.
The track listing is as follows:
04. Down Below The Ocean
05. Jesus Wept
06. Within Your Reach
07. Sad Day On Planet Earth
08. Fire Blood The Earth & Sea
09. The Grand Scale Of Finality
10. Cold Day In Hell
11. Blood Raining Down On Her Wings
13. Kill Me Again
14. Nocturnal Symphony
All the album artwork is being created by Peter Tsakiris, who is a major force in the industry, having created album art for DIO, TWISTED SISTER, DEEP PURPLE, TED NUGENT, OVERKILL, JACKYL and WARRIOR SOUL, to name a few.
