Lifelover - Sign With Prophecy Productions

Official press release

Lifelover have signed a long-term contract with Prophecy Productions. Our forth album is scheduled for release in early 2011.

This is what is stated by Prophecy Productions: "With their three full-length albums Pulver (2006), Erotik (2007), and Konkurs (2008), as well as the Dekadens EP (2009), Lifelover have established themselves as one of the most eccentric and notorious bands on the scene in the last few years. The Swedes' unconventional music, their cynical image, and their chaotic live performances have had an extremely polarizing effect. After several changes of labels, Lifelover have now found a partner for a close, long-term collaboration: they have signed a contract with Prophecy Productions over four albums.

Lifelover founding members B aka Nattdal and Kim "( )" Carlsson consider the signing of the contract with Prophecy a logical step for their band: "We always strive to evolve with each effort that we pursue as a band. Signing to Prophecy feels like a good progression for us, and we look forward to work with a label for the first time with consecutive releases."

A new album by Lifelover is scheduled for release in 2011.
