Biography/Press Release:

Lucifer Star Machine are back with a bittersweet vengeance.

If you dig hard-hitting, heavy Rock'n'Roll like Motörhead and Zeke, no-nonsense Ramones Punk and rowdy Hardcore a la Poison Idea, you're in for a treat. Their brand of Violent Rock'n'Roll takes no prisoners and their high energy live shows cement their reputation as a true in-your-face Hardcore Rock 'n' Roll act. But it is the segueing of this wanton brutality with their sense for heartfelt and catchy melodies, reminiscent of early Misfits, that makes them truly stand out.

The 5-piece was founded in London, UK in 2002 and has since toured several times across Europe, leaving their trail like a serpent in twelve countries, sharing stages with acts like Peter Pan Speedrock, Anti-Nowhere League and Demented Are Go, to name but a few.

Lucifer Star Machine's first single, "Death Baby", came out in 2004 and was produced by Punk Rock legend Rat Scabies of The Damned. After two album releases on various indies, they signed with German label I Sold My Soul Media in 2013, who released their critically acclaimed third full length "Rock'n'Roll Martyrs". The record was lauded for its authenticity and its snotty and unadorned approach.

In 2012 founder and band leader Tor Abyss moved back to his home country of Germany, whilst the rest of the band remained in England. Over time the logistics proved to be too difficult, so he decided to give the band a fresh start.

Thus, since Autumn 2014, Lucifer Star Machine is now based in Hamburg, featuring an all-German cast; guys who share Tor's ass-kicking full throttle take on music and life. The faces have changed; but the legend remains.

Get ready for the tattooed white trash bastard sons of the Devil, with their tales about love, pain, death and religious atrocities, as they will unleash Hell upon you once more in a sweaty Rock 'n' Roll dive near you. You have been warned!
