LORD have revealed details about their new EP, What Tomorrow Brings, featuring a title track which clocks in at over 25 minutes in length.
Stated LORD mainman L.T.: “This is something we’re really proud of, and something really different for LORD, although you can most definitely hear elements from all of the styles we like to dabble in all throughout the song. The difference is more so the presentation of those styles; in this case it’s a twenty five minute plus long concept piece that retraces the life of a man who has lost everything that had meaning to him, and now has a terrible choice to make that could mean the difference between life or death. What led him to this point and what does he ultimately choose? It was really cool to be able to do something so expansive with actors and orchestration that went through a great number or styles to tell the story. It’s most definitely a niche release that we couldn’t ordinarily do on a regular album, but we hope people find it as special as we do.”
Continued L.T.: “Like all LORD releases, we thought about what we could do to add value to the package, even though the title track is already longer than most EP releases usually are. We decided to add two songs that we never released publicly from the last album recording sessions, plus a bunch of cover songs that people were asking to be included on a CD one day. This bonus stuff actually cost us money to do because of licensing fees, but it was most definitely worth it if we could give more back to the people who part with their hard earned money to support us.”
