Jarno Kolehmainen vocals, Kride Lahti guitar, Antti Poutanen bass and Perttu Kurttila drums, composed the line-up which was going to take the band forward. With this ensemble Lithuria played a handful of gigs, mainly in the Helsinki capital area. At spring 2007 Lithuria also recorded an EP called "World Ending Pestilence". Later Tuomas Yli-Jaskari joined the group as a live session player. Soon afterwards, when Kride Lahti needed to leave the band due to schedule conflicts, Tuomas Yli-Jaskari took his place as a full band member in autumn 2007. Lithuria started active playing and rehearsing again after having a small time-out in the beginning of 2008.
Great opportunity for the band was opened in spring 2009 when Lithuria signed a record deal with Finnish Redhouse FMP. Just before the recordings for the debut album started Niko Kalliojärvi joined the band as a second vocalist and guitarist. In summer 2010 the debut album "Pimps Of The Living Dead" was finished. Now Lithuria is looking forward to play a lot of gigs and making the world suffer for its negligence to heed the word of the brutal groove.
