The official lyric video for the song "Bury My Dead" from the British rock outfit AS LIONS can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's debut full-length album, "Selfish Age", which will be released on January 20 via Better Noise Records.
Said AS LIONS vocalist Austin Dickinson (son of IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson): "'Bury My Dead' is a song about leaving your past behind you. It's very close to my chest because, in starting AS LIONS and beginning this new adventure, there were a lot of things that I had to leave behind, both as a musician and as a person. I think the same can be said for all people, in all walks of life.
"In our existence, the only constant is change and sometimes we have to say that final goodbye to the burdens that can no longer teach us or push us. That's one of the many ways in which we grow.
"I had so much fun writing this, and I truly hope you enjoy blasting it too!"
Fans who preorder the album will instantly receive "Bury My Dead" along with "Aftermath", "White Flags", "Deathless", and "World On Fire". The pre-order for the album is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
"Selfish Age" is the follow-up to AS LIONS' debut EP, "Aftermath", released last year. Helmed by award-winning producer David Bendeth (OF MICE & MEN, PARAMORE, BRING ME THE HORIZON) and Kane Churko (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DISTURBED, IN THIS MOMENT), "Selfish Age" is an illustration of the band's mission to create "the biggest, baddest hard rock we could, and on an almost cinematic scale." The album's 11 dynamic tracks are a study in contrasts, with the epic and evocative "Aftermath", the crushing "Deathless", which targets the Internet culture's obsession with image, "Bury My Dead", a hard-hitting personal statement complemented by stately piano tinklings, and the electro-tinged title track, "Selfish Age".
Comprised of Dickinson, guitarist and keyboardist Conor O'Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee, AS LIONS are the evolution of British rock. Having played sold-out shows in the U.K., AS LIONS left its imprint on the States during its recent U.S. arena tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, SHINEDOWN and SIXX:A.M.
