From the groups official website.
Recorded, engineered and mixed at Barnyard Studios by Tony Newton and produced by Steve Harris, The Burning is crammed with powerful hard rock melodies, with two songs Lightning and Spit Fire being made available for immediate download from tomorrow with all album pre-orders.
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. We’re also looking forward to heading out on the road again in the UK and US and seeing everyone at the shows.”
The Burning is a 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.

BRITISH LION and Explorer1 Music in New York.
Steve says, “It’s great for us to finally come to America to play some shows around the release of the new album there through Explorer1 Music. The E1 team have been extremely pro-active and we’re delighted to be working with them on both the record and the tour.”
Paul Woolnough, CEO and Co-Founder of Explorer1 Music says, “Explorer1 offers a completely new turn-key solution for touring and recording artists such as BRITISH LION in today’s fast-changing industry. After watching them evolve over the last couple of years and after recently launching E1, it seemed the perfect time to partner and collaborate on the U.S release of The Burning and BRITISH LION’s touring activities. I am proud to welcome Steve and the rest of BRITISH LION into the E1 family and look forward to collaborating and working together for many years to come”
