Lucifer releases new music video for the third single »Crucifix (I Burn For You)« taken from the upcoming album »Lucifer IV«

Lucifer releases new music video for the third single »Crucifix (I Burn For You)« taken from the upcoming album, »Lucifer IV«, out on October 29th, 2021 via Century Media Records / Sony Music.

Vocalist Johanna Platow Andersson comments: “We are thrilled to release the music video for our new single »Crucifix (I Burn For You)«. The sequel to our last video »Bring Me His Head« was shot in one take with a vintage 70s tube camera just like its predecessor by photographer Crille Forsberg and directed by Amir Chamdin. It has been a true honor to work with them, especially considering the astonishing portfolios they have under their belt. They’ve literally worked with anyone from The Hellacopters to Adele, from Ghost to Pharrell Williams. Very notable for me personally was Crille shooting David Bowie’s very last video »Lazarus«, that shook me to the bone. Well, and now they’ve worked with Lucifer. And what a bloody workday it was!”

From Century Media Records:

The multinational heavy rock megalith Lucifer from Stockholm is defined by their very heavy 1970s hard rock sound spiced with a good dose of proto heavy metal and doom rock. Main influences include groups such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Blue Öyster Cult, 70’s Heart & Fleetwood Mac. With nearly 200 shows under their belt Lucifer has toured the US, Canada, Japan and Europe multiple times and played renowned international festivals like The Kiss Kruise, Psycho Las Vegas, Hellfest, MetalDays, Sweden Rock, Desertfest, the long standing German cult TV program Rockapalast twice, to name only but a few.

Founded in 2014 in Berlin by The Oath front woman Johanna Sadonis, the group first consisted of Cathedral, Angel Witch and Ladytron members. The debut album »Lucifer I«, penned by Johanna and Cathedra’s Garry Jennings and released by British label Rise Above Records, brought Lucifer international recognition.

With a shift of constellation within the band in 2016 and Johanna Sadonis’ move from Berlin to Stockholm, Lucifer were ready for chapter two. In Nicke Andersson, notable for his groups The Hellacopters, Entombed, Imperial State Electric, Death Breath among others, Johanna found a new renowned writing partner. Johanna and Nicke wrote and produced the albums »Lucifer II« and »Lucifer III« at Nicke’s studio The Honk Palace in Stockholm. Relentless touring and recording have turned Lucifer into an explosive live beast and a reliable source of timeless rock and roll.

Lucifer wasted no time and used the pandemic to record yet another long player that rings in a new chapter and dives even further into the grande realms of colossal old fashioned rock, with a severe morbid twist. For this opus they entered guitarist Linus Björklund’s Studio Ryssviken for an even more heart pounding drum sound while continuing their work at The Honk Palace.

This time Lucifer has expanded their song writing partnership within the band and Johanna has not only penned the new material with Nicke but also with guitarist Linus, as well as guitarist Martin Nordin contributing. With »Lucifer IV« the group is proving furthermore to be steadily building their very own pillar of rock history, brick by brick. The first single to give you a glimpse of what’s to come is »Wild Hearses« – buckle up for a deliciously morbid sweet and heavy ride past tombs and churches!
