As Lions have made their new single Aftermath available to stream and announced their debut EP will be released next month.

The Aftermath EP will be released digitally on October 14 via Better Noise Records, with physical copies also available in Europe only.

The title track can be streamed below.

Vocalist Austin Dickinson says: “Conceptually it’s about trying to navigate your way out of disaster, be it personal, collective, or a war zone.”

One of the other tracks on the EP, Deathless, targets “the internet culture’s obsession with image.”

Dickinson – the son of Oron Maiden’s Bruce – is joined in As Lions by guitarist and keyboardist Conor O’Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee.

They will head out on a US arena tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, and Sixx AM next month.
