The band have sold over 150,000 copies of previous albums to date. This is the band's fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie & Bring Me The Horizon).

"Rise Of The Lion is a big step forward for our band. It's our most diverse record by far. The main goal was to create a timeless metal record that defines our band and I believe we have done it." -Levi Benton.

The band have also unveiled the artwork for the new record, which strikingly features a their lion emblem freshly tattooed on a fans back.

"We really wanted to bring our lion emblem back for this record. It's something that people associate with our band and something that was missing on the last record. That said, we wanted something fresh and exciting. We see so many people with that tattoo and it really has become synonymous with our band and our fans. So we decided to find one special fan to have it tattooed on them and represent this record. We wanted a really nasty, bloody, fresh tattoo to symbolise the dedication we and our fans have for this band. Nice, bloody, and metal!"
