Today’s Alternative interview with Lionize.
Following on from the deafening and monstrously successful first instalment of Metal Hammer and Classic Rock’s own Lords Of The Riff tour, which took place earlier this year and starred Scorpion Child, Monster Truck and Buffalo Summer, we are proud to announce that it’s happening all over again. This autumn, venues around the UK will resound to the life-affirming sound of some of the heaviest riffs currently available to human ears, courtesy of three of the hottest new bands on the planet.
Epic stoner riff-wielders Kyng, organ-hammering groove-masters Lionize and thunderous redneck rockers Anti-Mortem will feature on a rotating line-up so heavy that we can already feel the ground rumbling, and all for the ridiculously reasonable price of £10 per ticket!
“We truly love these bands, and it isn’t often that Classic Rock and Metal Hammer agree on anything, so when we do, we party,” says Alexander Milas, Editor-in-chief of Metal Hammer and TeamRock. “This tour is about getting behind the best young bands in our world for a proper run of dates, and for a fair price. We can’t wait to see you there.”
Lords Of The Riff 2 will hit the road in November for 11 skull-shattering dates that promise to be one of the hottest tickets in the heavy music world this autumn.
“Being a part of Lord of the Riff 2 is a huge deal for us!” says Kyng bassist Tony Castaneda. “We couldn’t be more excited that our debut there will be part of such an amazing package with Lionize and Anti-Mortem.”
“Lionize is very eager to get back to the UK and perform again so quickly after our last amazing tour with Clutch,” says Lionize frontman Nate Bergman. “To be a part of the Lords of the Riff 2 tour is an absolute honour, and we are looking forward to getting this rock’n’roll party started. We are humbled by the immense amount of support and love we are receiving every day in England, and to be a part of a legendary tour in the making is one of the most exciting things we’ve been a part of to date. We feel people will be talking about this tour for a long time to come. Can’t wait, see you soon!”
“We’re really excited to tour Europe with Lionize and KYNG,” says Nevada Romo of Anti-Mortem. “Both are visionary bands for this time. We have heard amazing things about Europe and it’s reception for this type of rock in roll. We’re really looking forward to seeing how the fans receive us.”
