On July 6th, 2018, heavy rockers LUCIFER will release their much anticipated second studio album, “Lucifer II”. Now, the band invites you to check out the album’s opening track ‘California Son’.
Singer Johanna Sadonis comments: “It is with great pleasure to bring you the video for our new single, ‘California Son’. We tried to squeeze in all things fun: old-school green screens, motorcycles, heavy music and cemeteries. Hope you dig it!”

“Lucifer II” marks the first studio release of the new LUCIFER incarnation now consisting of vocalist Johanna Sadonis, guitarist Robin Tidebrink, and multi-instrumentalist Nicke Andersson, who plays drums and also took over bass and guitar when recording “Lucifer II”. The band’s live line-up also features Martin Nordin (Dead Lord) on guitar and bass player Alexander Mayr.
“Lucifer II” was recorded at the Honk Palace in Stockholm and Ola Ersfjord (Dead Lord, Tribulation, Primordial) mixed it at Cuervo Recording Service in Madrid.
Originally, LUCIFER formed in Berlin back in 2014 consisting of singer Johanna Sadonis and members from Cathedral, Angel Witch and Ladytron. The first 7inch single ‘Anubis’ and debut album “Lucifer I” were released by British label Rise Above Records, quickly establishing the group as a promising new act offering excellent 1970s hard rock with a good dose of proto metal and doom added to the mix. Citing Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Öyster Cult, Lucifer’s Friend, Steppenwolf, 70’s Heart and Fleetwood Mac as inspiration, LUCIFER corrupted the souls of many and achieved international recognition on tours through Europe, USA, Canada and Japan.
With a shift of constellation within the band in 2016 and Johanna Sadonis moving from Berlin to Stockholm, LUCIFER are now ready for an exciting new chapter in their career. With Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters, Entombed, Imperial State Electric, Death Breath etc.), Sadonis found a congenial new song-writing partner, and “Lucifer II” turns out to be a strong sonic statement.
LUCIFER are already booked for a number of international festivals and concerts like Psycho Las Vegas, Hellfest, Desertfest and Germany’s cult TV show ‘Rockpalast’.
