||Lordi has revealed the two new members that joined the band: Mana and Hella. Drummer Mana will replace the band's former drummer Otus, who passed away earlier this year. Hella replaces the band's long-time keyboardist Awa who left the band last summer. The band's new studio album To Beast Or Not To Beast will be released on March 8th, 2013.
The album will be released in Finland by Sony Music and elsewhere in Europe by AFM Records. In the spring the band will also embark on a European Tour Beast Or Not Tour Beast. See the dates below.
"The road to this album has truly been paved by hardships," Mr. Lordi says. "However, the new line-up of the band has given us new and fresh touch and an energetic edge to the recording process, and to the album itself."
