LIONHEART Feat. Ex-IRON MAIDEN Guitarist DENNIS STRATTON: New Album Due In Early 2020

Metalville Records has announced the signing of the veteran British hard rock band LIONHEART. The group is currently working on new material, and a fresh studio album, tentatively titled "Reality Of Miracles", will be released during the spring of 2020.

LIONHEART was formed in 1980 by Stratton along with guitarist and keyboardist Steve Mann and bassist Rocky Newton, both of whom were later to play with MSG. Mann is also playing in the current lineup of MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST. The LIONHEART lineup is completed by original drummer Clive Edwards (ex-UFO) and undoubtedly one of the best singers in the U.K. at the moment, Lee Small (ex-SHY). During the 1980s, they toured constantly, selling out the infamous Marquee club in London on repeated occasions, and completing tours with WHITESNAKE and DEF LEPPARD. They also played at the legendary Reading Festival in 1981.

In 2017, LIONHEART released its first studio album since the classic "Hot Tonight" record from 1984. Titled "Second Nature", it was hailed by the critics as a triumphant return for the band, and LIONHEART has now headed back into the studio to record a follow-up album.

"We have about 10 songs on the go at the moment," Stratton said last fall, "and they are just sounding fantastic. We can't wait to bring this out."
