Gene Simmons signed Giuffria to his record label Simmons Record. He changed the band's name to House of Lords and replaced the band's original vocalist David Glen Eisley with James Christian. Simmons liked the material presented to him by Gregg Giuffria, a demo for Giuffria's third record, however wasn't a fan of the voice. James Christian was suggested by Chuck Wright, the bassist as the two had worked together in L.A. Rocks.
