LORDI Reveal New Music Video “I Dug A Hole In The Yard For You”

The second single of LORDI‘s upcoming tenth album is out now in all major music platforms. “I Dug A Hole In The Yard For You” is taken from “Killection: A Fictional Compilation”, which is set to hit the streets on January 31st via AFM Records.

“This is the most modern track on the so-called compilation, but the melody in the chorus and the title of the track have already been around ever since LORDI‘s second album, The Monsterican Dream, Mr. Lordi reveals.

The song is a violent love story about somebody’s crush who gets stalked, but in LORDI‘s world the following twist is normal rather than abnormal: the one who was stalked and killed comes back to take revenge.

“If nothing supernatural ever happened, that would actually be worth mentioning.”

“We shot the video with a very tight schedule last week in Oulu, Northern Finland, and Lordi fans will recognize a familiar face, Ralph Ruiz, who has been hoping for some ten years already he could be in our music video. The American hasn’t usually been around when we’ve been shooting music videos, but now we were able to fit our schedules together at last”, Mr. Lordi explains.

“Many people have been confused by this – is he real or a made-up character? This is in fact a guy with his own face, his own name and his own life. He’s just been pulled into this, because that’s what he wanted. Careful what you wish for – you just might get it”, Mr. Lordi says with a grin.

You can watch the video, directed by Aapo Lahtela and Vesa Ranta (Kaira Films), right here:
