house of lords2House Of Lords are looking at touring the UK this autumn according to sources close to the band – with their new album Cartesian Dreams due for release via Frontiers Records in September.

The US melodic rock stars have already inked in dates across Europe in late September and throughout October. And the Lords are understood to be keen to take the tour across the English Channel following a date in Normandy on October 31.

Cartesian Dreams follows hot on the heels of 2008’s critically acclaimed Come To My Kingdom and singer James Christian admitted: “This new CD was truly a labour of love. I was so fortunate to be able to work once again with my writing partner and friend Mark Baker. The last time Mark and I worked together was to write and record Demons Down.  We have a great chemistry when it comes to writing songs. But Jimi Bell once again gave us smoking tracks and Tommy Denander also made a key contribution on a few great tracks.

“The band, as usual, always strives to stay true to its sound but this time around we expanded our horizons a bit without compromising the trademark sound that so many people expect from us.

“We don’t want to keep making the same record over and over so this time around you will hear a few things you did not hear on the previous CDs.” 

House of Lords first hit the FM airwaves in 1989 with the release of their self-titled album, a record which is still regarded as one of the best hair metal releases of the 80s. The colossal sound, Christian’s soaring vocals and some stunning instrumental work combined to create a record reminiscent of Whitesnake, Deep Purple and Van Halen. 

“The one common thread with the band is that we are always on the same page in terms of what want our records to sound like,” added Christian. Let’s hope we hear it in the flesh before 2010.
