This is our personal tribute to Steve Lee.
We were lucky enough to know him, he was not just one of the greatest rock singers of all time, but he was also a wonderful person.
Steve and Gotthard influenced Lizhard when we started back in the mid 90s and we'll always be grateful for what he gave us on a musical and personal level.
Luca ZE (Bass): " When I met him the last time, we had a lovely long chat, we talked about everything and we remembered the best scenes of the Spinal Tap movie. I promised to give him a copy of that dvd, sadly I still own it. He was such a talented sweet humble person and we'll always miss him and his voice"
We hope you like our version of this amazing song, even if we know perfectly well that it is not the easiest thing to make a cover of a Steve' song.

Greetings from Mario!
New Singer Announcement
Hey folks, here we are again!
Lizhard are delighted to introduce Mario Mosca who, after an extensive search, will be the official new singer.
We have listened to lots of demos, but when we heard him we were amazed!
Mario has not only blown us away with his superb voice, but also with his great personality and charisma.
We're sure you'll love his voice as much we do and we take the opportunity to present him with the following video of the song's live version "And now...take this", which will be featured on the forthcoming new album.
Please come out and give a warm welcome to Mario!
Andrea Lanza joins Lizhard!
Hey folks, here comes the first big news!
Please welcome Mr. Andrea Lanza from Skill in Veins as guest guitar player.
This amazing guitarist (and great guy!) will join the band during the next months.
You will have the chance to see Andrea already in the forthcoming video of the album's song "And...now take this!"
due on mid September, who will be the the official presentation of our new singer.
LIZHARD IS LOOKING FOR A NEW SINGER
It's been a long ride together and a wonderful adventure but due to unexpected events the band and Luke Marsilio decided by mutual agreement to separate their ways.
Luke is no longer in Lizhard, he has got new priorities and he's moved in a different direction than us, but we must go on our way keeping Lizhard alive in respect of our friends and fans.
We wish him the best of luck and will always value and thanks him for the time he spent in our band.
After touring through Europe and opening for bands like Glenn Hughes, White Lion, Eric Martin, Bonfire, Soul Doctor and many otheres, we've finished the new full lenght and we want you to sing it along with some friends like Marco Mendoza and Paul Shortino who already partecipates to this new great album.
We want you...to join the big family!
Candidates looking to apply should send an email to email@example.com. We will send you a vocal-free music, you should record the vocals and email tracks back along with full contact information and picture to the e-mail address listed above.
Candidates are also encouraged to send us a link to a video or personal youtube page (where it's possible to see materials from their own bands or work).
We expect from you the following:
1. You must have great singing skills.
2. You have to be awesome on the stage.
3. English mother tongue or perfect english speaking
LIZHARD will be considering entries throughout next months and hope to announce a new vocalist before the end of August 2014.

Lizhard has confirmed the UK Tour in November, more infos coming soon
SCORE 80/100 "This is the debut volume of the foursome band from Italy. The bassist of the band composes music, except for the cover song - ⑤Life In The Fast Lane - by EAGLES. Each songs can be obediently enjoyed through rock and roll which makes the early GOTTHARD and a damn straight pitch ballade like BON JOVI or WARRANT. If I said bad their music is run-of-the-mill, and say good it is free from vice and universal. The vocal which sets smooth and sexy moderately is pretty great. If it was 20 years ago, they may have become a considerable popular. -Yumiko Haba- "
