While searching for a new label over the past year, Lillian Axe was looking for a record company who respected their past, but more importantly wanted the band to be part of their present and future. Blistering Records proved to be the most aggressive suitor for Lillian Axe making the decision an easy one. The Axe men were equally thrilled to become the flagship artist with this fast rising international company who already boasts releases from melodic rock heroes like Joe Lynn Turner, Glenn Hughes, Jorn & House Of Lords!

Every city & every festival that wants Lillian Axe shall have them!
Although, Lillian Axe never forgets its glorious past, their sound is very modern. Musically speaking, Sad Day On Planet Earth is by far their strongest album. With a rare balance of continuity & variety showcasing their veteran song writing chops, radio formats from Active to Mainstream & Loud Rock will find something to love on this amazing record. Fourteen tracks of pure Lillian Axe to rock the music world out of it’s collective slumber!
The songs that will be appearing on Sad Day On Planet Earth were written by main Axe man Steve Blaze & include: Megaslowfade, Ignite, Divine, Down Below The Ocean, Jesus Wept, Within Your Reach, Sad Day On Planet Earth, Fire Blood The Earth & Sea, The Grand Scale Of Finality, Cold Day In Hell, Blood Raining Down On Her Wings, Hibernate, Kill Me Again & Nocturnal Symphony.
