Swedish heavy metal band Lion’s Share has made a new song, ,,City Of The Night”, available on streaming services and digital service providers.

Lion’s Share guitarist Lars Chriss commented: “We wanted to kick off the new year with a “full on heavy metal riff mania”. We have already started recording the follow up single, which will be inte the same up-tempo heavy metal style. We hope to have that one out in April.”


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: “It’s about someone stuck in his own fantasy world unable to get out. Typical heavy metal lyrics. Pure fiction and pure metal.”

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.” 

The Lion’s Share catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISS, MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND, HAMMERFALL, SYMPHONY X, CHIMAIRA, THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, CANDLEMASS, etc. 
 Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (ARCH ENEMY, OPETH, SYMPHONY X, AMON AMARTH) – Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy Award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (ROXETTE, EUROPE, Glenn Hughes).

Lion’s Share has toured with bands like MOTÖRHEAD, MANOWAR, DIO, SAXONICED EARTH, NEVERMORE, U.D.O. (ex-ACCEPT), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and has played many of the major rock and metal festivals.
