Like father like son! Yes, remember Bruce Dickinson’s son Austin’s hard rock band, AS LIONS ? They recently released their killer debut album ‘Selfish Age‘ and this week put out the new video for the title track. It features live footage from their time on the road capturing snippets of their set at Rock On The Range (US), Graspop (Belgium) and Nova Rock (Austria), and indicating the bands exciting upsurge.
The band has seen a Top 12 hit in the US Mainstream Rock Billboard chart with single ‘Aftermath’, and tours with the likes of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH & SHINEDOWN plus multiple festival appearances. They are also heading out to support NOTHING MORE throughout the USA and Canada in September and October, including an appearance at Sonic Boom Festival.
