Lucifer's Friend Reunite and Release New Music

Lucifer's Friend have reunited and are celebrating by releasing a new compilation album that features a bonus disc that includes four new studio recordings.

The digital version of the new compilation, entitled "Awakening," was released on Monday and includes 10 of the band's classic tracks the bonus tracks. Order the digital versions here and Amazon lists a April 14th release date for the CD version here.

Peter Hesslein had this to say, "Over the years I have been asked many times, by all sorts of people, regarding a re-union / re-formation of Lucifer's Friend. As there are currently several international bands releasing cover versions of our old songs and in particular creating a "Hype" about Lucifer's Friend amongst the skateboarder's world-wide, we thought that before it really is too late, to give our fans, especially the younger ones, a chance to experience a part of the founder members of Hard Rock..."

Dieter Horns says, "When I received the first call regarding a re-union of Lucifer's Friend, on the spot I was wide awake and electrified. In recent decades we often discussed the possibility of a restart, made contact with studios and record companies, but now it should finally come true."

John Lawton adds, "The reformation of Lucifer's Friend has been a long time coming, but we all feel that the time is right…To get back together with the guys with whom I had worked together for so many years and recorded albums that have in many respects stood the test of time, is for me, an upcoming highlight. We're joined by Yogi Wichman on keyboards, who played on our last album Sumo Grip, but unfortunately the original drummer Addi Rietenbach died many years ago, so we will be introducing drummer Stephan Eggert into the band line-up…"
