Stream the band’s anthem for freedom of speech on all major digital platforms!
The band comments: “We’ve written this song during lockdown around 2 years ago. Musically we wanted it to be right in your face with a singalong vibe. Kinda like 90’s death punk but with a modern twist. Lyrically we wanted to express our views on cancel culture and censorship in general. We live in controversial times where natural laws like freedom of speech are being put to the test constantly. It’s important when living in a democracy, that we can endure different opinions. This is a song about the protection of liberty and individuality. Our »Censorshipped« cartoon video by The Art of Fox premiers via Rock Hard on 29th September!”
Lucifer Star Machine play fired-up rock’n’roll influenced by punk and hard rock.
Their high energy live shows cement their reputation as a true in-your-face hardcore rock ‘n’ roll act. But it is the segueing of this wanton brutality with their sense for heartfelt and catchy melodies that makes them truly stand out.
The 5-piece was founded in London, UK in 2002 and has since toured several times across Europe, sharing stages with acts like Peter Pan Speedrock, Nashville Pussy and Demented Are Go.
In 2019 the band hit the stage at Wacken Open Air, one of the world’s biggest Heavy Metal festivals, where the bill included Slayer, Body Count and Airbourne amongst others.
Lucifer Star Machine’s first single, »Death Baby«, came out in 2004 and was produced by punk rock legend Rat Scabies of The Damned. After two album releases on various indies, they signed with German label I Sold My Soul Media in 2013, who released their critically acclaimed third full-length »Rock’N’Roll Martyrs«. The record was lauded for its authenticity and its snotty and unadorned approach.
