Steve Harris and British Lion Release “The Burning”

British Lion: The BurningMetal bass legend Steve Harris has released a new album with his band British Lion called The Burning. It’s the second release from the group, which keeps Harris busy when he’s not on the road with Iron Maiden. While Harris is the primary songwriter and bassist for both groups, he tells Loudwire that the bands are different beasts.

“Well, for some reason over the last few years I’ve been finding it a little difficult to actually keep songs short — they always end up being long,” he said. “The British Lion guys, they rein things in and the way the songs are structured, they don’t need the big, long parts.”

You can still hear Harris’s signature bass style throughout The Burning. Check out the music video for the title track:

The Burning is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
