Lucifer have released a video for "California Son", the lead track of their upcoming second studio album Lucifer II, out on July 6th via Century Media Records. Watch the clip below.
After being formed back in 2014 and releasing Lucifer I via Rise Above in 2015, vocalist Johanna Sadonis has teamed up with Nicke Andersson (Entombed, The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electric) to reshape Lucifer. With the addition of Robin Tidebrink (guitar), Alexandr Mayr (bass) and Dead Lord’s Martin Nordin (guitar), Lucifer successfully transformed into a whole new beast.
While they are still citing Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Öyster Cult, Steppenwolf, 70’s Heart and Fleetwood Mac as influences, the songwriting, sound and diversity of Lucifer II mark a giant leap compared to the debut. The result are addictive tracks ranging from instant sing-alongs (‘California Son’) to moody ballads (‘Dreamer’) and Sabbath-ian doom (‘Faux Pharaoh’).
Recorded in the summer of 2017 at Nicke’s studio The Honk Palace, in Stockholm, and mixed by Swedish producer Ola Ersfjord (Tribulation, Primordial) at Cuervo Recording Services in Madrid, Lucifer II turns out to be a prime example how to properly transfer the undying spirit of 70’s hard rock into this day and age.
Available on 180 gram vinyl coming inside a luxurious flipback LP sleeve plus CD as extra, as jewelcase CD and on all digital platforms. Pre-order the album here.
