“With their rich orchestrations and sweeping melodies, With Lions make cinematic rock you can see.” (New York Daily News)
 
The Musebox today announced that cinematic rockers With Lions are back with their emotional new single, “Rundown,” the first track from their highly anticipated full-length, Fast Luck (out July 17th). "Rundown" and Fast Luck as a whole, are quite the sonic departure from band’s 2012 epic, orchestral rock EP, Equipo, which garnered much critical acclaim, with PopMatters calling it “a sprawling release that brings to mind the chamber pop of Grizzly Bear, with more modern influences.”

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. Lyrically, this is With Lions at their most potent and raw, with a variety of current events and social issues serving as the backdrop. This is due in large part to the addition of wunderkind multi-instrumentalist and producer Josh Thomas and vocalist Lee Mo, who are part of the Baltimore/Philadelphia hip hop/R n' B soul music scene.

Many of the themes explored on the album are about the push and pull of light vs. dark, good and evil, and how we as society and as individuals must manage and sometimes use these forces in our lives. "Rundown" is about one of the most extreme symbols of this struggle... "Fire." It can be a great force for destruction, but also harnessed for inspiration and creation. Josh grew up playing organ in his fath

Formed by songwriters Woody Ranere of Lake Trout/Mt. Royal and BenzosChristian 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. More information on With Lions is available on their official website.
