Fairfax, VA – October 8, 2015 | The Rock/Alternative clan, His Dream of Lions is amping up for their forthcoming self-titled EP due out next week October 13, 2015. Off the 4-track EP, His Dream of Lions, partnered with FUSE to premiere their music video for “Danger Close.” The music video or short film features three of the members playing runaway convicts chained together, dashing through picturesque fields, as the other two follow, the authorities, in hot pursuit.

The song and theme stems from their latest releases Part One and Part Two EPs in late 2014, where the band found a fair amount of creative soul searching to reinvent themselves. All songs were written by the members of His Dream of Lions, Produced/Engineered by Ben Green of Fairweather, and Mastered by Ryan Smith of Sterling Sound. The band continues to explain this new EP concept here:
“The story of this EP was the process we went through to remake the band. And for me it was the experience of processing the ill will present in my personal life. As opposed to hiding it behind a concept, or obscuring it with vague ideals, it’s told through the songs themselves. These songs represent a self-actualization for the band and emotional catharsis for me personally, from very low to very high.”
HIS DREAM OF LIONS BIO:
We’re all after something, and it’s the thrill of the chase that keeps us on. For the five young alternative rockers in His Dream Of Lions, the thrill they find is in chasing their dreams. Having known one another through the local Fairfax Virginia music scene, guitarist Nick Jones, singer Seth Coggeshall, and bassist Blair Kilner came together during the spring of 2012 to form the band that would eventually become His Dream Of Lions. After a full year of non-stop gigging and writing, the band’s lineup was finalized with the addition of drummer Jack Dunigan and keyboardist Colby Witko.
With the new members in place, the group quickly realized they needed a name that would stand to signify the moral intent behind the band. In Ernest Hemingway’s novel, “The Old Man and The Sea,” the main character experiences reoccurring dreams of lions playing on the beach. Even with the knowledge that they could drown, the lions carry on, representing a sense of adventure the old man once had. By taking the name, His Dream Of Lions, the members hope to be reminded of the ambitious spirit they promised never to lose.
Building off the support of their loyal and rapidly growing fan base, His Dream Of Lions continued onto a string of successes, playing with artists such as Aaron Carter, Jonny Craig, There For Tomorrow, Australia’s Got Talent winner Joe Robinson, as well as releasing a critically acclaimed cover of Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem“.
By the time June of 2013 rolled around, the band felt they had generated sufficient buzz, both local and national, to warrant the recording of their double EP, a concept record inspired by their love of storytelling. Once hitting the studio with producer Ben Green (Fairweather), the band released their debut record simply titled “Part One” in March of 2014. The opening track, “Novel“, has gained significant commercial success, climbing to #7 on the NMW Top 40 Chart, and #7 on the NMW Hot 100 Singles Chart.
Following the success of “Novel,” the band decided to partner with Bryan Stars for the release of their “Elsa” music video, the band’s second single off of “Part One.” With no sign of letting up from the Virginia based quintet, listeners can now find the smashing continuation of “Part One“, wittily entitled “Part Two,” on Itunes, Spotify, and Amazon Mp3.
