About Lawnmower Deth

  • Lawnmower Deth were formed in Ravenshead, Nottinghamshire, England in 1987 by Chris Flint and Joseph Whitaker School mates Pete Lee, Steve Nesfield and Chris Parkes.
    Their first official release was a split album with Metal Duck. Lawnmower Deth's side of the record was entitled Mower Liberation Front and positive responses led to their debut studio album, Ooh Crikey, It's... Lawnmower Deth.

    Lawnmower Deth's second studio album, Return of the Fabulous Metal Bozo Clowns, was released in 1992. The band's sense of humour extended into their cheap but enjoyable music videos. Both "Kids in America" and "Lawnmowers for Heroes, Comics for Zeros", the latter from Metal Bozo Clowns, were recorded on home video cameras and edited in an amateur fashion.

    The band's third and to date latest studio album, Billy, was released in 1993. The band tried to take a slightly different direction on the album, verging towards the kind of pop punk feel pioneered by the likes of Green Day at the time, with most of the band's thrash metal roots left behind. The band to break up later on that year.

    Lawnmower Deth announced that they would be reuniting to support Welsh metalcore band Bullet for My Valentine for a one off gig on 15 November 2008 at the Alexandra Palace in London.

    Since then they have played Bloodstock, Download (a whopping 4 times), Damnation, Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest. Their Christmas shows and usually only club shows of each annum are rapidly becoming an thing of legend.

    2014 saw the re-release of their classic first full album ‘Ooh Crikey’ on Earache records after mass demand from both their label and fans alike. All profits were directed to the SOPHIE cause of which the band have had a close affinity in the past couple of years.
    2015 finally sees the band return to Bloodstock after a 4 year absence whilst also headling Wildfire Festival in Scotland and a first time visit to the Camden Rocks Festival in London. An announcement on a Christmas show is expected imminently.

    “Motorbonce famously said ‘if we move in next door your lawn will die’. Quite what positioned our forefathers to even remotely claim knowledge of horticultural metal is well beyond us. Scott Ian famously said ‘I am the law’. In fact this simply proves that adult literacy levels within the metal genre are in line with that of the national average, quite shit, when he clearly cannot spell and meant LAWN. In a Nostradamus kind of way what these two legends of metal were pointing you to was, “Bloodstock 2015, when we move in you will die happy, we are Lawnmower and we is well excited. Lets party like it’s 1988”.

UPRISING FESTIVAL 2017 27th May, De Montfort Hall, Leicester Three Stages, One Iconic Venue and a whole lot of metal!   Now into its second year, we are beyond pleased to announce our first bands, a selection from each of the three
