Kingdom Come mastermind Lenny Wolf has now revealed the cover artwork and track listing for new album "Outlier," which can be found below.
"Naturally, nobody is happier than I am when my music is loved by as many fans as possible," says Wolf, "but these kinds of aspects are irrelevant when it comes to creating a new album. The only thing that matters is testing myself as an artist and embarking on new paths."
According to a press release, with "Outlier" Lenny is starting a new chapter of his diverse creative career, positioning his charismatic voice between traditional rock structures and modern sound elements, which add a third dimension to this album.
"I simply felt the need to delve deep inside of me and run riot in the infinite expanse of the audio cosmos. The result is a friction of mercilessly mechanical, heartless sound collages, combined with my typical melancholy-melodious style," Wolf explains the album's interwoven experimental approach to his sound. "A whole number of souls happen to dwell in my breast, which is why experimentation and the development of my musical existence simply belong together."
Lenny purposely takes into account that this approach may also lead to friction and requires an open mind of its listeners: "It's of secondary importance to me whether this is clever in business terms. To me, it's all about creating optimum varieties of sound signals which go through the ear straight into the heart. Some call it a vocation. Hallelujah." More...

"After having done a lot of experimenting with 'Perpetual', I thought it was the time to take out the axe again and rock the house," said Lenny Wolf, the mastermind behind KINGDOM COME. The new CD [is] one of my heaviest recordings ever. I was trying to build 'walls of guitars' in combination with that typical KC moody and spacey approach. It does not have the typical 'blues' factor anymore, which many of you may remember from the first records. I have transported my roots into the year 2006."
KINGDOM COME has set "Ain't Crying for the Moon" as the title of their new album, due in Europe on October 13. The CD will be issued in Russia and the Baltic States on September 15.

KINGDOM COME's webmaster Marko (brother of KINGDOM COME mainman Lenny Wolf) has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"The new album is now almost ready. It is entering the mastering stage.
"A funny coincidence occured when Lenny visited a friend in a record store in Hamburg. Lenny was introduced to Marc-Dieter Einstmann. Marc-Dieter is a former technician who has worked with musicians like Dave Stewart, Annie Lennox, Tricky or DEPECHE MODE. and who has spent a few years working at Sterling Sound Studio in New York, which is known to be a top adress for mastering records. They hit it off well, and Marc agreed to master the new CD. I can't wait to hear the outcome. The record company situation seems to come along okay as well."
KINGDOM COME's follow-up the 2004's "Perpetual" is tentatively scheduled for release later in the year. The band cancelled their U.S. tour in early 2005.
