Lizzy Borden Returns With First Album In 11 Years
That's right, theatrical rock frontman Lizzy Borden is gearing up to release his first album in 11 years, My Midnight Things, via Metal Blade Records this June 15. Expected to be full of his trademark mix of rock and shock, the hard n' heavy collection of tracks will include songs such as 'Obsessed With You' and 'The Scar Across My Heart'.
"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.
The album can be pre-ordered (and the 'My Midnight Things' lyric video can be viewed) here.
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 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."
