Now that I've seen the instagram stories, I think it's going to be a music video and new single for I Dug A Hole in the yard for you. The symbols suggest the song and I've found from the instagram account of one of the fx-worker. 8)

When I read the tracklist first, I didn't think "I dug a hole in the yard for you" is gonna be a single. Doen't sound like a Lordi single. I hope the chorus is not like:

I dug a hole in the yard for you
I dug a hole in the yard for you
I dug a hole in the yard for you
I dug a hole in the yard for you
I dug a hole in the yard for you
I dug a hole in the yard for you

I'm not a fan of those repetitive lyrics like in the last single. I have always been a fan of those lyrical Deadache-era-choruses

I just checked the Deezer site of Killection and it seems that this album will have 3 singles because it shows that "I Dug A Hole In The Yard For You" will be out this fiday (November 29.) and we will get ANOTHER SINGLE two weeks before the release of the album (January 17.), which will be "Like A Bee To The Honey" the track with Michael Monroe on it as a guest and the track that was written by Paul Stanley and Jean Beauvoir :D What you think about it? Could it be real? :D

It could be reliable. Deezer is a pretty big streaming service after all. Interesting though, so many singles before the album release. And weird to use outside songwriters, as Mr L is one of the best hard rock songwriters out there.

Can't wait 'til friday! I hope it's 70's song, something different. :)

I think it's the brandnew one or an 80's song cause on the tracklist it's covered by two 70's songs.

SPOILER

The single is out, at least in Australia. I'm not living there but as I have ITunes Australia, I can already listen to the snippet. Sounds like it's produced by Mikko Karmila. I can't tell if it's 80's or brandnew cause new Lordi songs usually sound like the 80's. I can tell, it's typical Lordi: Cool Lyrics, One of their best pre-choruses to date (No other band can write THAT good pre-choruses), an oldschool typical Lordi chorus with more harmonies instead of backing vocal shouts... sounds really cool. I don't know if the snippet shows the second verse or a bridge after the second chorus. Would be cool if it's a bridge, sounds not fluent enough as a verse.

Sounds great! I am not going to listen the snippet, because I think it's better when you don't know what's coming.

Now I heard it from the beginnng to the end and it's surely the one brandnew song. They really tried to make it sound modern with all those rough and dissonant harmonies. I really like the chorus but verses, riffs and the solo will have to grow. In the end most of Lordi's songs have to grow on me and I always like it in the end.

To my ears the song sounds like something that could've easily come off of "Sexorcism". Nowhere near my favorite Lordi songs or anything, but still a solid catchy tune.

The video is out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgE6vzK ... EWzIO3tHEM

On a first listen I thought the song was a bit messy, but after a few listens it's really growing. I'm with alalitsches on this one though, the choruses are really- REALLY - great but something isn't quite clicking with the more metal/complex riffs in the verses or solo. I kind of wish they'd gone melodic all the way if that makes sense. But as I said, the pre-chouruses and chorus are extremely strong, that's the Lordi I know and love! It's a solid single that will most likely continue to grow on me.

As for the video ... THIS is how it should be done! After atrocities like The Riff and Hug You Hardcore I thought all hope was lost but holy crap! It's visually pleasing, fits the song and it's fun! I really love when the monsters get to actually do stuff and be monsters. Heck, this might be my favourite video since Blood Red Sandman - who would've thought they'd pull that off almost 20 years into their career? Hats off to the whole band and video team!

I think the new single is better than Shake The Baby Silent. The song is good and the video too, but the verses, "main riff" and especially the solo are quite boring. Overall, I think they did a good job, because they had to make other type of songs as well. One thing that I also liked in this song, were the backing vocals.

To me it sounds similar to their earlier b-sides, like from The Arockalypse or something, but with a more modern touch. Definitely better than Shake the Baby Silent. I certainly didn't expect a love song when I first read the title. The choruses are pure magic, and they've been stuck in my head the whole day. It's exactly what I expect from Lordi, and I'm happy they still don't disappoint.

The chorus is really great, but again the parts seems like they are combined from different song ideas to one.
But personally I really like the song! And I like that they try different sounds i.e. guitar solo. And this song has been played in my head on repeat, so the hooks work as always.

That's probably more or less how it is. I read, that the chorus melody and the title exists since the Monsterican Dream era. The verses sound pretty modern. I was hoping that the one brandnew song really is brandnew. Cause when I listened to this song the first time I thought "yes, they are writing those big hook melodies again like in the early days" and reading that it is from the early days and not from nowadays is a little disappointment.
Anyway, Shake the Baby silent has grown on me and this new song is pretty good so I'm really looking forward to the album. I wanna hear a 70's song so badly though.

I hope for some track by track descriptions by the band in the next weeks. We are stil so far away from the album release. Normally release of the second single is a week or two before the album release. I'm curious how they will fill the time.

After listening to IDAHITYFY about 30 times I just can't get this chorous out of my head :lol: Chorous are really catchy, I dunno why but this song reminds me a bit of Bon Jovi vibes :lol: anyway, this song and Shake The Baby Silent sounds really good, for sure this album will not be as heavy as Sexorcism or Demonarchy, it is going to be a really catchy album and maybe smth like BFB album.


PS. Someone asked what I mean about 10th anniversary a few posts before, I mean this is 10th Lordi album, so u know, it is smth like anniversary.

Is anybody of you writing reviews again? I can remember Isa has often written reviews. Do you have an idea when the first reviews are allowed to be released? I wanna read something about the songs so badly, more than ever before cause I'm so curious how the 70's songs sound like.

First samples of all new songs are out :)
I didn't listen to them cause I prefer reading about your thoughts and listen to the songs as a whole I think... don't know if I'm strong enough not to listen...
Tell everything you hear please :lol:

Finally, some samples; been waiting so impatiently for them.

All of these songs seem, by the sound of it, pretty solid, but I would say the first half is going to be the stronger one since it has the tracks that left the best impression on me: Horror For Hire, Like A Bee To The Honey (going to be my favourite from this album probably, been chanting it in my head now) and Blow My Fuse.

But, like all Lordi songs that I've known, if you don't love it at first listen, it'll grow on you and you'll find some love in it that you'll keep coming back to :wink: .

I'm terrible at waiting, so I've listened to the samples. I'm really happy with the songs! I really like how the feeling/structure of all the songs are different from each other. The samples made me even more pumped for the album. What version/versions of the album have you guys pre-ordered?

So far I have pre-ordered the boxset, picture disc vinyl, silver/black vinyl, red vinyl + bag and the turqoise vinyl. :roll:

As I said before, I was so curious how the earliest song sounds like because the influences, Mr.Lordi mentioned, he was under while writing this song sounded like I may not like that song. That's why I only listened to the blow my fuse sample. This is much better than I expected it to be, I really like everything I hear in this sample. It's not typical Lordi but the melodies are great, especially the guitar-melodies. Not sure about the mix cause there are a lot of deep bass frequencies and not a lot heights but I think I'll get used to it.

Ofc I had to listen to it XD sooo for me, from the samples, the worse sounds Apollyon, the weirdest and really not-lordish sounds Blow My Fuse but it sounds cool, the best are Up To No Good, Cutterfly, Scream Demon and Evil which I feel already can be one of my fave Lordi songs ever and I hope it won't change when whole album will be released. And what's cool is the thing they go with SCG, it's interesting to hear that kind of SCG and I really enjoying it. I was a bit scary about this album but now I can't wait for it more than before :D

I think I'll pass on the samples this time. I want it to be a surprise. I've heard the two singles and that's it. :wink: but good for those who are dying to hear it before release.

I listened all the samples, because I couldn't resist listening to them. So, I think my favourite samples are: Like a Bee to the Honey and Cutterfly. Blow My Fuse and Zombimbo are the most unique songs, because they sound so old. I want to hear the full songs and then I will decide if the album is good, but for now I think that I will like the album.

I try to fight temptation this time, but great to read your reviews! Can anyone say, which is the "new song" of the album, not referring to any decade? :)
