As Lions have released a stream of their track White Flags.

It follows the band’s deal with Better Noise/Eleven Seven and their debut track The Fall. The debut EP is expected in the coming months.

Frontman Austin Dickinson said: “We’re all such tight friends, and this feels like everything is exactly how it needs to be. Whether people listen or not, we’re doing it because we’re having so much fucking fun. This is us at our best. Get ready.”

It’s also been announced that Dickinson, guitarists Conor O’Keefe and Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee, will head out on tour across the US with Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown and Sixx AM in October and November.

Prior to the run of 16 dates, As Lions have several festival appearances lined up this summer, including an appearance at the Download festival.
