UK HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED (with support from Dream State)
TOP 15 AT U.S. ROCK RADIO
DEBUT ALBUM – ‘SELFISH AGE’ OUT NOW
UK alt-rock five piece As Lions have unveiled a special acoustic performance of the current hit single ‘Skin’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xqYz0Jlx_8&feature=youtu.be) by Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, filmed at London’s YouTube Creative Studio in Kings Cross. Showcasing the band’s softer side, the stripped back version exposes their incredible ability to adapt, and tone things down.
The band recently completed a US tour with Shinedown and are set to play at Rock On The Range this weekend in Columbus, Ohio, alongside heavyweights including Metallica, Biffy Clyro, Korn and more. They’ve also bulldozed their way into the Top 15 of the Billboard Mainstream and Active Rock Radio Charts, joining the company of huge US rock acts including Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Mastodon and many more.
And now, following their headline show at the Boston Arms Music Rooms in March, As Lions will be back in the UK for their first ever headline tour, playing a run of 17 dates in September.
As Lions are also confirmed for their first UK festival appearances of the year at both Amplified Festival and Fat Lip. The band will also be playing a number of European & US festivals including Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Graspop, Rock On The Range and Northern Invasion.
