Lawnmower Deth To Release Christmas Single, "F U Kristmas" With Kim Wilde

British thrash metal favourites Lawnmower Deth has announced that they have teamed up with pop star Kim Wilde to release a new single in time for the holidays, entitled, "F U Kristmas." The song will be released on December 1st through Wildflower Records. While it may sound like a strange partnership, the East Midlands group caught the attention of Wilde when they released a cover of her hit song, "Kids In America" in 1991, which she claimed was her favourite rendition of the track. She also joined Lawnmower Deth on stage at Download festival last year and claims that after that, a collaboration was inevitable.

The project is hoping to reach the coveted Christmas number one spot in the U.K., though bookmaker William Hill is offering odds of 25/1 on it happening. Wilde has previously add festive success however, when she worked with comedian Mel Smith on a rendition of "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree" in 1987, which reached number three in the singles chart and raised money for the Comic Relief charity.

Wilde stated: "Lawnmower Deth came up with the idea of us collaborating on a Christmas tune and I said yes immediately, feeling our worlds had become inextricably linked."

Lawnmower Deth vocalist Pete Lee claims that the single is "the greatest project we’ve been involved in" and added: "Working on a Christmas single together, some would say it’s the most bizarre juxtaposition since KLF and Extreme Noise Terror at the Brit Awards. I prefer a bunch of loveable chancers married with pure pop royalty."
