Lovelorn Dolls, the Belgian goth metal pop band, is making a comeback with their fourth album, “Deadtime Stories”, after a five-year hiatus. During this period, the band’s frontwoman, Kristell, expanded her artistic horizons under the alias Kristell In Wonderland as a photographer and visual artist, an experience that has heavily influenced the band’s latest work.

The new album comes after the teaser EP “Beautiful Chaos” which was released earlier this year.

The album will be out on Alfa Matrix / Spleen+ on CD and as download (and streaming). The new album was produced by Maxx Maryan, known for his work with Helalyn Flowers and ImJudas. “Deadtime Stories” also features a guest appearance by Dero Goi, the former singer of OOMPH!.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
