A brief(ish) history of Lesbian Bed Death
He was soon joined by Johnny Hell (Vox/Guitar/Keys/Programming) and in 2004, Lesbian Bed Death became a reality when the duo recorded their first song 'Goth Girls Are Easy'. It was recorded in Johnny's flat in London on his home computer, then was put on the internet for free download. The MP3 of the song was downloaded worldwide and was picked up by several Goth DJs who gave it plenty of rotation. The original version of Goth Girls Are Easy can be heard HERE.

The only recording from Lesbian Bed Death with Johnny Hell on vocals that received an official release was 'Goth Girls Are Easy' which was featured on the compilation album 'Kill Your Management Volume 6'.

Lesbian Bed Death finished recording their existing songs and wrote a few new ones too. Their debut album I Use My Powers For Evil was released on in 2006.

Lesbian Bed Death began working on a new album in the Summer of 2009, with live lead guitarist Chuckmaster C now a permanent band member. However, nothing is ever easy with LBD. On the first day of recording, Magic Andy quit the band. The remaining members recorded almost the entire album over the next few weeks, hoping that he would reconsider and rejoin the band. Eventually, Chuckmaster C had to record the bass parts.
The band found Kittie Racchea and she became the new lead singer. Naturally, touring an album when the lead singer didn't sing on it caused some confusion. For this reason, the band re-recorded Moonlight and Designed By The Devil, Powered By The Dead, and released them as a digital single (Click HERE for more info). They then released a music video for Moonlight in April 2011, unleashing this new version of Lesbian Bed Death into the world.

The chaos never seems to stop in Lesbian Bed Death. Due to the same issues that had challenged the band the first time, and despite their best efforts to make things work, it was clear that it would not be possible to continue with Luci4 on lead vocals (click for post).
With a new studio album, The Witching Hour (Click for details), and an accompanying mini-album, The Plague Sessions (Click for details), due to be released, the band wasted no time in recruiting a brand new lead singer, Zoey Phoenix.
