Fairfax, VA | September 18, 2014 – Today, the Fairfax, VA alternative rockers, His Dream Of Lions, are ecstatic to announce that their upcoming EP, “Part Two,” will officially be released on December 2, 2014. This EP is a continuation of their latest release, “Part One,” which led to relative commercial success for the group. After, the opening track on the record, “Novel” climbed to #7 on the NMW Top 40 Chart, and #7 on the NMW Hot 100 Singles Chart, the band is eager to see where “Part Two” will take them. The group’s lead single off this EP, “The Pace Car,” will be released later this month. This track is one of the defining songs for this record and vocally draws a heavy influence from Queen, which is uncommon in the alternative rock scene. The single along with the entire EP was produced by Ben Green (Fairweather). His Dream Of Lions explains the concept behind their upcoming release with the following words:
“Run down by the town she bolts to the sea
For some kind of prize, or some old retreat
When red, white, and blue rise up from the deep
She knows all she wanted was right underneath”
“Part Two” Tracklisting:
1. The Pace Car
2. Summer Song
3. Next Stop, Fall City
4. Dreams Equipped
5. The Ordinary
6. All The Salt In The World

About His Dream Of Lions:
We’re all after something, and it’s the thrill of the chase that keeps us on. For the five young alternative rockers in His Dream Of Lions, the thrill they find is in chasing their dreams. Having known one another through the local Fairfax Virginia music scene, guitarist Nick Jones, singer Seth Coggeshall, and bassist Blair Kilner came together during the spring of 2012 to form the band that would eventually become His Dream Of Lions. After a full year of non-stop gigging and writing, the band’s lineup was finalized with the addition of drummer Jack Dunigan and keyboardist Colby Witko.
With the new members in place, the group quickly realized they needed a name that would stand to signify the moral intent behind the band. In Ernest Hemingway’s novel, “The Old Man and The Sea,” the main character experiences reoccurring dreams of lions playing on the beach. Even with the knowledge that they could drown, the lions carry on, representing a sense of adventure the old man once had. By taking the name, His Dream Of Lions, the members hope to be reminded of the ambitious spirit they promised never to lose.
Building off the support of their loyal and rapidly growing fan base, His Dream Of Lions continued onto a string of successes, playing with artists such as Aaron Carter, Jonny Craig, There For Tomorrow, Australia’s Got Talent winner Joe Robinson, as well as releasing a critically acclaimed cover of Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem”.
By the time June of 2013 rolled around, the band felt they had generated sufficient buzz, both local and national, to warrant the recording of their double EP, a concept record inspired by their love of storytelling. Once hitting the studio with producer Ben Green (Fairweather), the band released their debut record simply titled “Part One” in March of 2014. The opening track, “Novel”, has gained significant commercial success, climbing to #7 on the NMW Top 40 Chart, and #7 on the NMW Hot 100 Singles Chart.
Following the success of “Novel,” the band decided to partner with Bryan Stars for the release of their “Elsa” music video, the band’s second single off of “Part One.” With no sign of letting up from the Virginia based quintet, listeners can expect to find the smashing continuation of “Part One”, wittily entitled “Part Two,” later this fall.
