German genre-fusing dark rock outfit Lord Of The Lost had been nominated for representing Germany in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with the title track of their brand new album “Blood & Glitter”, which hit #1 on official German album charts. Now online voting has started and the preliminaries will be aired on German national TV. You can vote here. The voting is only open from Germany and is limited to one vote per IP address (device).
Frontman/guitarist Chris “The Lord” Harms said on the nomination: “We are a band that has never consciously adapted to anyone or anything. No trend, no scene, and no expectation. We have always done what we like ourselves – at all times. That we are now being considered for the biggest music show in the world with our weird genre mix, as authentic and unbowed as we are, is a great honor and we are extremely looking forward to being able to make the ESC pre-selection a little more colorful in many ways. A song like “Blood & Glitter” is very hard for the German TV and radio landscape – it will polarize. And since we love contrasts, it makes it all the more exciting for us. Friends, it’s going to get loud on German television on March 3!“
Lord Of The Lost played a completely sold-out club tour throughout Germany and will continue to support Iron Maiden again on their upcoming European tour. The group will also appear at several major festivals throughout Europe through the rest of the year and recently announced more shows.
