LION’S SHARE GUITARIST LARS CRISS COMMENTED:
,,These heavy and doomy riffs are what’s closest to my heart and what comes out most natural when I pick up a guitar and play. I love how this song came out and how the different parts are like a reaction to the previous one. Like an epic journey through different moods.”
In late 2018, Lion’s Share released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog – remastered with new artwork – on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The band have since released a few more digital singles, some of which will and some of which won’t end up on the forthcoming full-length album.
Lion’s Share singer Nils Patrik Johansson added: ,,Since both Lars and I are huge fans of the STRANGER THINGS TV series, we wanted to write something to show our love. STRANGER THINGS is truly a show for eighties metal nerds like us. We also hired awarded video maker Niklas Nieminen to make a lyric video that captures the style of the show.”
BEING A DUO
Both Johansson and Chriss remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep Lion’s Share as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.
,,We are aware our fans want a new album and the plan was to release one in 2020, but we all know what happened then. We had just started playing live again with a couple of headline shows in Germany in March and were gearing up towards a new album and tour. Since we think it’s very important to tour behind a new album, we just have to wait until things go back to “normal” again”. Until then, we plan to release a new single every 2-3 months and keep building our fan base.”
