As Lions announce headline show at London’s Boston Arms Music Rooms on Wednesday 22nd March!
Following the release of their highly acclaimed debut album Selfish Age via Better Noise Records last month, UK band As Lions have announced a London headline show at the Boston Arms Music Rooms on March 22nd. This special date in the capital serves as the perfect warm-up for the band’s 10-date US tour with Shinedown that kicks off in April.

As Lions are also confirmed for their first UK festival appearance of the year at Bristol’s Fat Lip Festival in July, along with Young Guns and will be playing a number of US festivals including Rock On The Range, Welcome To Rockville and Northern Invasion.
Since coming together in 2015, the band—comprised of Austin Dickinson, guitarist and keyboardist Conor O’Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee— have played sold-out shows in the UK, as well as performing with Trivium, and now a US arena tour with Shinedown, spanning 27 dates, including 13 sold out shows across the States.
The five-piece released their debut full-length album, Selfish Age, in October 2016. Consisting of 11 dynamic tracks, it mixes thick, grinding riffs and rhythms with majestically sweeping strings, stately piano tinklings and a hefty dose of atmospheric electronics, all of it shot through with Dickinson’s soaring vocals and introspective lyrics. The result is music that runs a gamut of emotions, capable of sounding beautiful and hopeful one second and angry and aggressive the next. Or, as Dickinson puts it,“sonically and in terms of expression, the idea is to have these little peaks and valleys in the songs. That ambition, as far as sound and feel and emotion, is what binds the five of us together as musicians.”
