LIONHEART present “Angels With Dirty Faces” single official video

Spread the metal:

“Angels With Dirty Faces”, LIONHEART’s second single from the global release of “Second Nature” (Metalville Records – January 21st), is a giant nod to the classic James Cagney / Humphery Bogart movie of the same name from 1938. The song defines the high point of Lionheart’s newly-founded writing collaboration with singer Lee Small and set the standard for all their subsequent work. With a memorable, singalong chorus showcasing Lionheart’s famed 3 part vocal harmonies along with Lionheart’s classic twin guitar harmonies from Steve Mann and Dennis Stratton, the song is powered by the inimitable combination of Rocky Newton’s driving bass line together with Clive Edward’s rock solid groove on the kit. Angels With Dirty Faces is a particularly fine example of modern classic rock at its best.

In 2017 the album Second Nature hailed Lionheart’s triumphant return to the melodic rock music scene with a collection of powerful and memorable songs featuring the distinctive harmony vocals and harmony lead guitars for which Lionheart were so renowned.

The first Lionheart album to feature the extraordinary talent of Lee Small on lead vocal, Second Nature was released in Japan (on King Records) and Europe. Unfortunately in 2020 the European deal lapsed and the album disappeared from the market outside of Japan.

Now Metalville Records have stepped up to the plate and are releasing a repackaged version of the Second Nature album and, for the first time, globally.

To mark this special event the album has been re-mastered to sound punchier than ever, and now also includes 2 bonus tracks.

The release will also include the remarkable ‘Circle Of Bands’ chart by Tristan Greatrex which has been brought up to date and which was up to now only available in the Japanese release.
