Mortiis Ready Single, Featured on Norwegian Television Show

Mortiis will be featured on an episode of the Norwegian television show "Lydverket" on Wednesday, March 1. The subject of the program is masks and images in rock music and Mortiis' prosthetic-enhanced frontman made the band an obvious choice for the program. Noted for his unique image, the frontman of the same name began wearing a full mask in 1994 as part of the full Mortiis concept. "Lydverket" captures Mortiis years later as the concept has evolved and Mortiis has begun removing the mask during live shows.

The "Lydverket" crew followed Mortiis for nine months, filming and interviewing the band numerous times on tour in England and Norway and at photo shoots. "Lydverket" (Norwegian for "soundworks") is Norway's biggest and most respected music program with an average of 150,000 viewers and airs on the country's largest channel. The episode will also include Slipknot, KISS' first manager Bill Aucoin, and Alice Cooper, among others.

This episode of "Lydverket" will first air on NRK1 on Wednesday, March 1 at 23.10 (11:10 p.m.) and will re-play on NRK2 Sunday, March 5.

Mortiis is currently working on new material. A follow up to last year's "The Grudge" is planned for this year.

The band is also set for a debut homeland single release when a special version of "DECADENT AND DESPERATE" is released. Taken from the seminal 'THE GRUDGE' album, "DECADENT AND DESPERATE" is released in Norway on Earache on March 6, 2006.

"DECADENT AND DESPERATE" comes in three formats, all including exclusive non-album tracks. Both 7" versions feature artwork including two poster sleeves and the CD contains one post-Grudge song "UNDERDOG".
