As Lions unveil Rag ‘n’ Bone Man cover & full UK headline tour

19/05/17

UK alt-rock five piece As Lions have unveiled a special acoustic performance of the current hit single ‘Skin’ by Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, filmed at London’s YouTube Creative Studio in Kings Cross.

Showcasing the band’s softer side, the stripped back version exposes their incredible ability to adapt, and tone things down.

The band are currently on the road in the US with Shinedown, where they have bulldozed their way into the Top 15 of the Billboard Mainstream and Active Rock Radio Charts, joining the company of huge US rock acts including Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Mastodon and many more.

And now, following their headline show at the Boston Arms Music Rooms in March, As Lions will be back in the UK for their first ever headline tour, playing a run of 17 dates in September.

As Lions are also confirmed for their first UK festival appearance of the year at Bristol's Fat Lip Festival in July with Young Guns. The band will also be playing a number of European & US festivals including Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Graspop, Rock On The Range and Northern Invasion.
