|Lords of the New Church
On July 20, 2018 Blixa Sounds will reissue the band’s debut album as a two-disc set titled Lords of the New Church: Special Edition. The set will feature the album’s ten original songs as well as two B-side bonus tracks in “Girls Girls Girls” and “Young Don’t Cry” as well as the single version of the band’s Top 30 hit “Open Your Eyes.”
Formed in 1980 by Bators and James at the suggestion of I.R.S. Records founder Miles Copeland, the Lords originally included former Generation X bassist Tony James and Clash drummer Terry Chimes. James’ former Damned bandmate Rat Scabies even sat in on drums for a while, before the band line-up gelled with the addition of Tregunna and Turner. Although their time in the sun was short-lived, Lords of the New Church released three classic rock albums between 1982 and their 1989 break-up, following up on their debut with Is Nothing Sacred? in 1983 and The Method to Our Madness a year later.
