Digi-CD/LP) LIZZY BORDEN launches video for new single, ‘Long May They Haunt Us’, via Loudwire.com! New album ‘My Midnight Things’ out June 15th! For decades, LIZZY BORDEN has been one of theatrical rock’s top front-men. And on June 15th, Borden will issue his first album in 11 years, ‘My Midnight Things‘, via Metal Blade Records. The extended layoff between albums has not dulled his desire to rock and shock. “Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career,” Borden comments. For a preview of ‘My Midnight Things‘, head over to Loudwire.com now for the video premiere of ‘Long May They Haunt Us’, which LIZZY BORDEN proclaims as “the most meaningful song on the ‘My Midnight Things’ album. It’s about those people that are no longer in our lives but we still think about them every single day. They haunt us with more than a memory, a haunt that we hope will never go away.” The video (directed by David Brodsky / davidsbrodsky.com) can be viewed at: loudwire.com To watch the lyric video for the previous single, ‘My Midnight Things‘, please visit:metalblade.com/lizzyborden – where the record is available in the following formats: –limited 1st edition Digipak-CD (includes bonus tracks) –jewelcase-CD –180g black vinyl –clear pacific blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies) –clear burgundy marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies) –olive/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 300 copies) –opaque cool gray marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies) * exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available! Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce ‘My Midnight Things‘ himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. “I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that,” Borden explains. “My approach is very different than what is happening in today’s current sound.” The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty). Borden is planning on hitting the road shortly. “I’ve already started working on the ‘My Midnight Things’ show, and I really can’t wait to play these songs live,” Borden adds. “There are so many talented players out there in the world, I know I will find the right musicians to be on stage with me in my touring band in the new show. And just based on what is being talked about so far, it will be the best show I’ve ever done. I really do feel a new excitement that I have not felt in years. The best is yet to come.” ‘My Midnight Things‘ track-listing 1. My Midnight Things 2. Obsessed with You 3. Long May They Haunt Us 4. The Scar Across My Heart 5. A Stranger to Love 6.

A message from the band themselves… DEW-SCENTED are no more! All good things must come to an end… And it’s now been 26 (!) intense years of sacrifices for the thrash metal cause for us. Despite numerous setbacks, DEW-SCENTED never split up or even stopped for any significant amount of time. We were always blessed with great opportunities and a strong will to soldier onwards. All in all, we have had an amazing ride with this music we love and not only played countless great shows across the globe, but released ten (!) albums and most importantly, we made tons of life-long friendships along the way because of the band. But it’s time to realize that we won’t be able to forge ahead much further because DEW-SCENTED just won’t work without complete and constant dedication. And giving such a full-time commitment simply isn’t possible anymore because of how life otherwise evolved throughout the years. Having acknowledged that fact, we feel it’s best to wrap the band up in a proper way, with a purely positive feeling. To go on our own terms and with the best possible “conceptual end” (like the song on “Issue VI”, haha!), instead of leaving our destiny to chance or someone else’s actions. DEW-SCENTED will therefore perform a last run of shows in the coming months and then have a very last special show in the group’s hometown Walsrode in Northern Germany on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 to celebrate the band’s legacy in style one last time. Who knows, maybe we still manage to add some more last minute date(s) for the rest of the summer, but after October 6th, there will be no more frontline activities for DEW-SCENTED, no planned concerts and no further recordings. We would like to thank everyone who has encountered, enjoyed or supported DEW-SCENTED at some point and in some way throughout the years. Basically to all of you reading this here! Professionally, we would like to thank our record company Metal Blade as well as our previous partners at Prosthetic, Nuclear Blast, Grind Syndicate, Steamhammer/SPV and all their affiliated licensing associates for releasing and promoting our music. Also thanks and cheers to all our former members or session players, our buddies in other bands, media outlets, publishing partners, booking agents and the local promoters who got involved with us in some capacity. We will hopefully continue seeing you around in one way or another again! Don’t forget that the music is out there and will forever remain available for all of us, especially if we keep supporting the scene and the young, talented bands out there! And to end as we started, with another proverb: all’s well that ends well. DEW-SCENTED (1992 – 2018) DEW-SCENTED Live: SA 23.06.2018 Protzen (Germany) – Protzen Open Air / Sold Out!

Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to the band’s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.” To preview and purchase Posthuman, please visit: metalblade.com/harmsway Harm’s Way line-up: Chris Mills – drums Bo Lueders – guitar James Pligge – vocals Casey Soyk – bass Nick Gauthier – guitar Harm’s Way online: http://harmsway13.com/ http://www.facebook.com/harmsxway http://www.twitter.com/harmsxway Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
