Cinematic rockers, With Lions, are back with a new single, “Rundown,” the first track from their upcoming full-length, Fast Luck – out July 17th. “Rundown” and Fast Luck as a whole, are a departure from band’s 2012, orchestral rock EP, Equipo.
On Fast Luck, the band explores the telling of an old, but timeless story with a modern approach to the sound. It is no coincidence that With Lions positioned “Rundown” as both the album opener and lead-off single, as the song serves as the perfect introduction into this sonic shift. The music is a unique yet seamless combination of bluesy riffs, hip hop rhythms and RnB/soul vocals that blend together in a very immediate and cinematic manner. The new sonic signature is due in large part to the addition of multi-instrumentalist and producer Josh Thomas and vocalist Lee Mo, who are part of the Baltimore/Philadelphia music scene.
Formed by songwriters Woody Ranere of Lake Trout/Mt. Royal and Benzos’ Christian Celaya, with Josh Thomas being a recent addition, With Lions are becoming champions of the small and big screen, having written original music and licensed existing songs from their vast catalog for a variety of television and film projects, such as Shameless, Silicon Valley, Gotham, Banshee, CSI, Victoria’s Secret, Dicks Sporting Goods, Chevy Volt, Wells Fargo, Reese’s and many more.
