California's hardcore legends Lionheart have followed up the successful releases of tracks 'Valley Of Death', 'Burn' and 'Rock Bottom' feat. Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns) with their fourth single 'Born Feet First' off their upcoming full-length record, Valley Of Death!, which will be released on the 15th of November 2019 via Arising Empire.
The Bay Area reigning kings of heavy hardcore first stormed onto the scene in 2007 with their debut album, The Will To Survive. Taking influence from bands like Blood For Blood, Hatebreed, and Madball; Lionheart came out swinging with a full-blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. They quickly followed it up with 2010’s Built On Struggle, 2012’s Undisputed and years of nonstop touring.
Following a short break after the release of Undisputed, the band came back stronger than ever with 2014’s Welcome To The Westcoast. Lionheart stormed onto the scene again in January 2016 with Love Don’t Live Here. The album title, a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown song by the same name, shows the bands unwillingness to conform to the typical 'hardcore mould', as well as the bitter and unforgiving lyrical content the band is known for. November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash Welcome To The Westcoast II. A sequel to Welcome To The Westcoast, the album brought forth a new era in California hardcore.
Now, after two years of relentless touring around the globe, Lionheart returns with their most punishing album to date: Valley Of Death!. Backed by a combination of blistering metallic hardcore and heavy west coast groove, front-man Rob Watson offers a window into a life of torment, violence, and an unrelenting will to overcome.
