It turns out that the time away from the music scene has not dulled the appetites of hard rock fans for LIZZY BORDEN, as his new album, My Midnight Things, has already left a deep impression on five different Billboard charts. These placings include #11 on Top New Artist Albums, #17 on Current Hard Music Albums, #43 on Top New Artist Albums Consumption, #46 on Independent Current Albums, and #148 on Top 200 Current Albums. Additionally, the album also made the Canadian charts – hitting #84 on Top Hard Music Charts.
“We live in a streaming world now, where everyone gets their music for free,” explains Lizzy. “But I want to personally thank all the great Lizzy Borden fans out there who shopped online or drove down to your local mom and pop music store and actually paid for my new album. You guys got Lizzy Borden back on the charts! And the fact that you’ve all embraced ‘My Midnight Things‘ in such an amazing way is the icing on the cake. Thanks again, and I will see you all soon on the ‘My Midnight Things‘ tour!”
Released on June 15th via Metal Blade Records, My Midnight Things can be purchased and previewed at: metalblade.com/lizzyborden
Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce My Midnight Things himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. “I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that,” Borden explains. “My approach is very different than what is happening in today’s current sound.”
The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty), and is already receiving rave reviews, from Alt Revolt, Pure Grain Audio, and Royal Flush:
“Borden paints a ten-song art gallery show and lets the listener decide what he or she sees on the canvas.” – Alternative Revolt Magazine
“Catchy riffs and melodies that are sure to be trapped inside your head, bouncing around your skull for days to come.” – PureGrainAudio
“The resulting creation yielded what is arguably the strongest vocal performance of Borden‘s career.” – Royalflushmagazine.com
