IRON MAIDEN Bassist STEVE HARRIS’s BRITISH LION: Performance Footage Of New Song ‘Spitfire’

britishlion2015tour2015_638

Fan-filmed video footage of IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris‘s solo/side project BRITISH LION performing a brand new song called “Spitfire” on July 29 at The Square in Harlow, United Kingdom can be seen below.

BRITISH LION‘s debut album sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 3 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

“British Lion” was released in the U.S. on September 25, 2012 via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Mixed by Kevin Shirley — whose credits include IRON MAIDEN as well as Led ZEPPELIN, JOURNEY and RUSH, among many others — the CD, which features Harris alongside vocalist Richard Taylor, guitarists Graham Leslie and David Hawkins and drummer Simon Dawson, presents a different side of the bassist’s musical visions.

“British Lion” comprises ten songs that Steve and his collaborators have been working on between IRON MAIDEN tours and releases and is described by Harris as “’70s-influenced, British-sounding hard rock.” “I’d say it’s more mainstream rock than metal… and quite commercial… but good commercial,” he said. “There’s all kinds of stuff going on, with nods to THE WHO and UFO and some classic British rock bands, but it’s not the progressive rock album some might be expecting.”

BRITISH LION has just embarked on a 22-date U.K. tour. Support on the trek is coming from THE RAVEN AGE, the band led by Steve‘s son George Harris.

Said Steve: “As MAIDEN fans know, the band is unable to tour this year so I thought I’d do some BRITISH LION live dates and make it a full U.K. tour this time round so we could get to places we didn’t get a chance to play during the previous tours.

“We have a lot of fun doing the BRITISH LION shows and we’re playing clubs again to keep that same vibe and intimacy which the fans seem to love as much as we do.

“We have some new songs in the setlist, so are really looking forward to getting out there and seeing everyone!”

DISTURBED Releases Lyric Video For Ode To Weed ‘Fire It Up’

disturbedimmortalizedcover

The official lyric video for the song “Fire It Up” from Grammy Award-nominated, multiplatinum hard rock titans DISTURBED can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s sixth studio album, “Immortalized”, which will be released August 21 through Reprise Records. Lead single “The Vengeful One” is out now, along with the accompanying animated video from award-winning filmmaker Phil Mucci, and “Immortalized” is available for pre-order everywhere. The upcoming release follows 2010’s gold-certified “Asylum”, DISTURBED‘s fourth consecutive #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and the group’s subsequent break, which gave members David Draiman (vocals), Dan Donegan (guitar), Mike Wengren (drums) and John Moyer (bass) the necessary reprieve to make this imminent and deliberate return.

Draiman says that as much as 95 percent of the music he’s written for the band has been created while he was high. Speaking with Revolver, Draiman revealed that “Fire It Up”, which opens with the sound of a bong hit, was inspired by the singer’s routine. He explained: “There was a big fat bowl before that one. 95 percent of the songs I’ve written in my life, I’ve written them while high. That’s the god’s honest truth.”

Draiman continued: “I’ll have a very skeletal musical idea in my head, and then I’ll light one up, go in the shower and let the steam kind of build up. It helps me relax, and I can see the gaps. I can see the holes in the rhythm and the melody and I’ll know where I can go, and what the possibilities are. It helps me be able to perceive everything a little bit more clearly.”

Draiman told The Pulse Of Radio that “Fire It Up” was inspired by a recording session where he sang DISTURBED‘s new cover of SIMON AND GARFUNKEL‘s “The Sound Of Silence” while high. “I was done with the day and I wanted to relax, so I went ahead and I smoked a bowl,” he laughed. “[I] came back and was high out of my mind and no, no, by no means ready to track vocals by any stretch of the imagination. And they all encouraged me to go into the vocal booth, and I was pretty blown away. I hadn’t heard my voice that vulnerable in a very, very long time.”

Draiman added that “Fire It Up” is more lighthearted than usual for DISTURBED, remarking: “Yeah, that’s me saying it: There’ s a song on this DISTURBED record that’s fun… And God knows there’s certainly enough people out there that appreciate the enlightening aspects of smoking marijuana.”

“Immortalized” ends a four-year hiatus for the band and features the current Top 10 rock single, “The Vengeful One”.

DISTURBED will play its first show in four years on August 21 at the House of Blues in the band’s hometown of Chicago.

KING DIAMOND To Perform Entire ‘Abigail’ Album On Upcoming Tour?

KING DIAMOND will make a special announcement on August 3 — one day after the completion of the band’s participation in this year’s edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Although no details have yet been revealed, speculation is that KING DIAMOND will perform its classic second album, 1987’s concept effort “Abigail”, in its entirety on an upcoming tour.

A post was made earlier today on the official KING DIAMOND Facebook page featuring the cover artwork of the “Abigail” LP, along with the following caption: “ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! Keep an eye out for some major news on August 3rd.”

Asked by Metal Injection earlier this month if there is a chance of KING DIAMOND ever performing “Abigail” in full, the band’s guitarist, Andy La Rocque, smiled and said (see video below): “It might happen. I can’t really tell you any, you know, details about it, but, yeah…”

La Rocque also said that KING DIAMOND hasn’t officially started working on material for the follow-up to the band’s 2007 album “Give Me Your Soul…Please”, but he talked about a possible direction for the next CD. He said: “Hopefully the sound of the album is gonna be better. I don’t really know about the story or… I’ve got some riffs and such that I wrote a few years back, actually, but I have to go back and check that to see if that still can be used. I don’t know about that, because we get new ideas all the time. So we’ll see about that. But I’m sure we’re gonna have some fresh, good ideas for the next album, that’s for sure. And when that’s gonna happen, we don’t really know.”

Andy revealed in a 2008 interview with “Abigail” was his favorite KING DIAMOND album so far. He explained: “The songs and the whole recording session was just surrounded with magical moments, great spirit and a very creative atmosphere. I still remember it as one of the best studio sessions I ever been involved in.”

KING DIAMOND in 2002 released an album called “Abigail II: The Revenge”, which was said to feature a storyline that was the sequel to the original “Abigail” LP.

ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! Keep an eye out for some major news on August 3rd
