British Lion

Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris has announced a new album and U.S. tour with his side project, British Lion, for 2020. The Burning will be released January 17th on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. British Lion fans will recognize several of the songs, which have been in the works for two years.

“We started playing some of the songs live on recent tours and got a fantastic reaction from our fans so we are really excited to be sharing this album with the world,” vocalist Richard Taylor says. “We’re also looking forward to heading out on the road again and seeing everyone at the shows.”

You can hear Harris punching out the low notes on the single, “Lightning,” which is available for immediate download with all pre-orders:

Harris and the band will begin an 18-date U.S. tour starting the day after the album’s release. Starting January 18th in Orlando, the outing will take them across the South and eventually up the coast. The final date is slated for February 20th at Gramercy Theatre in New York City.
