Lionize releases new album and announces tour dates!

Genre-bending reggae/rock band Lionize have announced that they will release Superczar and The Vulture, their fifth album, and first on the Pentimento Music Company label on 12/6/11, with distribution by Redeye. The release sees Lionize heading back to Magpie Cage Recording Studio (Against Me!, The Promise Ring, Murder By Death) to record with the legendary J. Robbins. On it, they weave together 70s-influenced heavy psych rock riffs with reggae grooves and deeply soulful vocals, resulting in a record that both challenges and embraces the genres where it finds its roots. Both the cover art for the upcoming release as well as the track listing can be seen below. Pre-order for the album is available beginning today at the RISC Store.Lionize have also released the first single off Superczar and The Vulture, titled “Superczar”.

Lionize spent this past summer as stand-outs on the Vans Warped Tour, and followed that success with a string of dates across the United States co-headlining with friends Larry and His Flask. This fall sees the band once again on the road, touring the country with labelmates Streetlight Manifesto, Rodeo Ruby Love and Reel Big Fish. You can view dates at the bottom of the page. Lionize are no strangers to the touring life, having spent the better past of the last decade touring virtually non-stop with the likes of Bad Brains, Clutch, Steel Pulse, and CKY among numerous others.
