Steve Harris and British Lion Release New Track From “The Burning”

British Lion: The BurningAs Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris and his band British Lion prepare to hit the road in the U.S. next year, they’ve released the second single from their upcoming album, The Burning.

We’re also looking forward to heading out on the road again in the UK and US and seeing everyone at the shows.”
