As Lions have released their brand new music video for single Selfish Age. The song is also the title track from their debut album, which was released earlier this year.

It includes footage from shows in the US, Belgium and Austria at Rock On The Range, Graspop and Nova Rock.

The band is made up of Austin Dickinson on vocals, Conor O’Keefe on guitar and keyboard, Will Homer on the guitar, Stefan Whiting on the bass and Dave Fee on drums. Their self-stated mission is to make ‘the biggest, baddest hard rock we can, on an almost cinematic scale’.

As Lions’ previous single Aftermath was a top 12 hit in the US Mainstream Rock Billboard chart and the band will be supporting Nothing More throughout the USA and Canada in September and October, including an appearance at Sonic Boom Festival.

They will then be powering into a headline tour of the UK in November, supported by Greyhaven, and have announced a competition to find a local support act in each of the towns they play. Entitled, the Nine Lives Competition, As Lions are seeking nine new bands – one for each gig – to open proceedings for them.

In addition to getting the chance to share the stage with As Lions and Greyhaven, each of the winning bands will be supported across social media, YouTube and Spotify by As Lions, Raw Power Management and record company Eleven Seven – home to As Lions, Papa Roach, Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames.
