Lions New Album and Tour

Lions (Austin, TX) U.S. Summer Tour / New Album For Fall Release

Lions will kick off their Summer tour on June 12 with a show in their hometown of Austin, TX at Emo's. A majority of the setlist during the tour will consist of material off their next record which is set to be released later this Fall. The band is currently at the Bubble Studio in Austin, TX with producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith (Meat Puppets, Jet, Trail of Dead) recording their follow up to No Generation, which gained national attention last year in the U.S. and U.K. via press and a heavy U.S. touring schedule with Local H and The Toadies. Songs from No Generation were featured in Californication on Showtime, Sons of Anarchy on FX Network, and MTV's Nitro Circus.

Prior to the recording of the new record, Lions spent two days at the Bubble Studio to record a cover of Bob Dylan's "Girl From The North Country" upon the request of Sons of Anarchy. The song will be featured in an upcoming episode during the show's second season. Lions are giving the song away for free at:
