Rock Legends Lucifer’s Friend Release First New Studio Album “Too Late To Hate” In Three Decades!
OUT NOW!

London, UK – Much to the excitement of music fans worldwide, rock legends Lucifer’s Friend have released their new studio album titled “Too Late To Hate”! This is the band’s first true NEW STUDIO ALBUM since 1981!

Lucifer’s Friend reformed in 2015 and since then has been playing high profile festival concerts such as the HEADLINE act on 4 Sound Stage the SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL and at the ROCK OF AGES and LORELEY festivals too. The band features core original members John Lawton (ex-URIAH HEEP), Peter Hesslein and Dieter Horns along with long term members Jogi Wichmann and Stephan Eggert.

“ ‘Too Late To Hate’….the new studio album, was recorded off the back of our ‘comeback’ performance at the Sweden Rock Festival. The impetus we gained after recording 4 new studio tracks for the ‘Awakening’ album was what we needed. Plus the feedback from the ‘Live At Sweden Rock Festival’ CD, brought about a feeling that we could take on some ‘unfinished business’… Lucifer’s Friend has been over the years, mostly encamped in the studio recording material that has stood the test of time… However the new studio album ‘Too Late To Hate’ with 12 original tracks is a sign that we are still very capable of producing good material and bringing it live on stage.” – John Lawton.

Lucifer’s Friend formed in 1970 with their influential and groundbreaking self-titled album, famous among connoisseurs of 70’s hard rock. Its heavy and majestic overtones made it a pioneer release in rock music.

The group went on to release six albums in that decade. In 1976 Lucifer’s Friend suffered a hard blow when British vocalist John Lawton joined Uriah Heep. The band broke up in 1982 and briefly reformed in 1994 as Lucifer’s Friend 2 for the album “Sumo Grip”. Now Lucifer’s Friend is back, after 30 years with their highly anticipated new album “Too Late To Hate”!

Rock Legends LUCIFER’S FRIEND To Release New Best Of Compilation Feat. Bonus Disc With Four New Tracks on April 6, 2015!

London, UK – Rock legends Lucifer’s Friend have reformed in 2015, some 20+ years after they last played together. The band formed in 1970 with their influential and groundbreaking self-titled album, famous album among connoisseurs of 70’s hard rock. Its heavy and majestic overtones made it a pioneer release of progressive rock genre.

The group went on to release six albums in that decade. In 1976 Lucifer’s Friend suffered a hard blow when British vocalist John Lawton jumped ship for none other than Uriah Heep. The band broke up in 1982 and briefly reformed in 1994 for their ninth album “Sumo Grip”. Now they’re back, after 20 years, literally by the fans’ request…

Lucifer’s Friend will be releasing a 10 track best of compilation titled ‘Awakening’, which also includes a bonus disc with four new songs, via Cherry Red Records on April 6, 2015.

Lucifer’s Friend will be playing Sweden Rock Festival and the reformation is expected to be one of the most extraordinary highlights of 2015! The band is receiving a variety of offers from around the world and look forward to playing their classic tracks and new material to fans!

Peter Hesslein said: “Over the years I have been asked many times, by all sorts of people, regarding a re-union / re-formation of Lucifer’s Friend. As there are currently several international bands releasing cover versions of our old songs and in particular creating a “Hype” about Lucifer’s Friend amongst the skateboarder’s world-wide, we thought that before it really is too late, to give our fans, especially the younger ones, a chance to experience a part of the founder members of Hard Rock…“

Dieter Horns added: “When I received the first call regarding a re-union of Lucifer’s Friend, on the spot I was wide awake and electrified. In recent decades we often discussed the possibility of a restart, made ​​contact with studios and record companies, but now it should finally come true.”

John Lawton then added: “The reformation of Lucifer’s Friend has been a long time coming, but we all feel that the time is right…To get back together with the guys with whom I had worked together for so many years and recorded albums that have in many respects stood the test of time, is for me, an upcoming highlight. We’re joined by Yogi Wichman on keyboards, who played on our last album Sumo Grip, but unfortunately the original drummer Addi Rietenbach died many years ago, so we will be introducing drummer Stephan Eggert into the band line-up…”
