Lionize begin work on new album, announce select headline dates

Fresh off an extensive North American tour with Clutch, D.C. groove rockers LIONIZE are preparing to head back into the studio to work on their next album.  The band has confirmed four dates for the summer months and will continue to play one-off shows while they work on the follow up to Superczar and the Vulture.  Dates are below. Frontman Nate Bergman spoke about heading back into the studio and playing out this summer: \”We just finished up a huge North American tour with Clutch, we are excited to get into our basement and work on a new batch of songs. Along with spending the summer writing we are doing some special headlining shows in DC, Delaware and Pittsburgh. We are going to be introducing a lot of new material at these shows and working out the material live. Each show will be a unique set list as always and some older tunes along with the newer stuff will be on the menu. We are looking forward to this summer of LIONIZE events!\” For a band with so little pretense, sometimes it can be easy to forget just how much LIONIZE accomplished since their inception in 2004.  From being the first band to play both Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour in the same year to their five full-length albums to virtually non-stop touring year after year, the groove-heavy rock group has dared to do more than most bands could ever hope to accomplish.  LIONIZE Live: 7/3: Washington, DC @ The Rock and Roll Hotel 7/4: Rehoboth Beach, DE @ Dogfish Head 7/6: Pittsburgh, PA @ Altar Bar 8/10: Sharon, PA @ Quaker Steak & Lube For More Info Visit:
