A letter from Lizzy to all the Lizzy Borden Friends and Fans around the world
Its been three and a half years since Lizzy Borden played our last show together with Alex Nelson, Joey Scott, Marten Andersson and me. Since the untimely Death of Alex, I didn't know if Lizzy Borden would ever record or perform onstage again, or if we even wanted to without Alex.
The three of us have been keeping ourselves busy writing, recording and performing in a band we created called Starwood. Starwood is not a metal band and that is why it was not tied together with Lizzy Borden in any of the promotions. This band is very important to the three of us because it came together at a time when we really needed it. Burying your brother, band mate and Best friend was not an easy thing to do. The adventures that we all experienced together around the world for over 20 years is not something you can just pick up and move on from that easily.
We have recorded and released one Starwood record and we are days away from finishing the second Starwood record. Like I said before this is not a Metal Band, it has more in common with cheap trick then Priest or Maiden. Even though Starwood is not for the average Lizzy Borden Fan we are none the less very proud of the band and especially our new forth coming record, it should be out sometime this year with dates to follow.
Having said all of the above, if you've spent as much time touring the world screaming blood curdling metal as we have, you know it's in our blood, we are eternally infected.
This brings me to the reason I am writing you today.
The three of us, (just like Freddy Kruger would have liked) have been having the same nightmare at the same time. Or even a better analogy is we all shared the same girl and we all now have an itch. That itch is, TO PLAY METAL AGAIN!
The first step to
bringing back our murderess little road show is to find the right guitar
player or players. Being that Alex Nelson was irreplaceable this is not
going to be easy. He did the job of two guitarists and sang better then me
most nights. Word around the campfire is, we might bring in some of our
"famous" guitar slinger friends (you may be surprised of all the world
class "Famous" guitar players that are big fans of Lizzy Borden) to play
on the record, you will know who they all are if we decide to go that
We have been plotting some really great ideas on where we should take the music and the new concept; from these early meetings I know this is going to be something like you've never heard before from us but always wanted to.
Just like all of the
Lizzy Borden records we want to go where we've never been before and still
be a classic Metal band. That means pounding Double Bass Drums, Shredding
guitars, a thunderous maniacal bass and of course some Blood soaked
screams, all within a beautifully lit dark bloody concept as only Lizzy
Borden can do. We are going to take our time and make sure we make the
record of our lives! So although we might be doing some touring this year,
the new record will probably climb out of the grave early next year with a
full tour in support of it.
