Steve Harris to release second British Lion album

Iron Maiden founding bassist Steve Harris will release the second album with British Lion, “The Burning”, on January 17th, 2020. Featuring 11 new songs, “The Burning” will be released as digipack CD, double gatefold vinyl and in Digital Download formats.

The album was recorded, engineered and mixed at Barnyard Studios by Tony Newton and produced by Steve Harris. The band features vocalist Richard Taylor, guitarists David Hawkins and Grahame Leslie, drummer Simon Dawson and Steve Harris on bass and keyboards.

Crammed with powerful hard rock melodies, “Lightning” and “Spit Fire” will be available for immediate download with all album pre-orders. “Lightning” can also be heard here:




Richard Taylor says, “We’ve been working on ‘The Burning’ for the past couple of years and everyone is really pleased with the results. We started playing some of the songs live on recent tours and got a fantastic reaction from our fans so we are really excited to be sharing this album with the world.”

“The Burning” is the 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 every year and festival dates whenever time allows, building and establishing a firm and dedicated fan-base, reaching 24 countries across the globe so far, with plans to visit many more in the future.
