BRITISH LION (feat. Steve Harris of Iron Maiden) Share Title Track From New Album ‘The Burning’

British Lion have shared the title-track from their upcoming second album The Burning, which will be released January 17th 2020 in Digi-pack CD, double gatefold Vinyl and Digital Download formats.

It comes ahead of their first U.S. club tour, which kicks off on January 18, 2020, at the Ace Café in Orlando and will conclude with a show at the Gramercy Theatre in New York on February 20th. Support will be The PICTUREBOOKS and tickets can be purchased at

British Lion is the creation of Iron Maiden bassist and founder Steve Harris and is the ‘up close and personal’ side project he devotes his time to, outside of his Maiden activities. He is joined by vocalist Richard Taylor, guitarists David Hawkins and Grahame Leslie and drummer Simon Dawson and the group are gearing up to release album number two.

The Burning was recorded, engineered and mixed at Barnyard Studios by Tony Newton and produced by Steve Harris, and is crammed with powerful hard rock melodies, including the title-track and previously shared instant grats ‘Lightning’and ‘Spitfire’.

The album is a follow-up to British Lion’s 2012’s eponymous debut album, Steve’s first ever musical venture outside of Iron Maiden which was pronounced both“brilliant” and “a big hearted ferocious triumph” by the music press.

The band have since been tirelessly honing their live show performances with club tours and festival appearances, building and establishing a firm and dedicated fan-base, reaching 24 countries across the globe so far. They’ve also just been announced to play at Donnington’s Download Festival 2020 with further shows to be announced going forward.
