Lions of Dissent present their new beautifully brutal video to accompany new single 'Honey from Hell'.

After a busy summer of activity, including headlining Birmingham’s well renowned Hott Date event and a prestigious support slot with Californian psych queens L.A. Witch, Lions of Dissent are delighted to present their self-directed music video for their debut single Honey from Hell.

Originally scheduled for release in April, the release date was postponed to late July to accommodate vinyl production – a direct result of an online fan campaign for a vinyl release. It was initially premiered by the groundbreaking music and fashion magazine Clash, who described the single as a “beautifully brutal, full-on multi-dimensional sonic experience”.

Honey from Hell is out now on both 7-inch vinyl and via digital platforms. It is complemented by b-side Don’t Let The Darkness In and augmented by the cosmic artwork of Wolverhampton graphic designer Sister Minor.

Lead guitarist Rob Wear said, “Vinyl is the ultimate format to release music on and we are very proud to present Honey from Hell as our first release, it will hopefully be the first of many!”

About Lions of Dissent

From cryptic beginnings 3 years ago as a multimedia solo project, 2017 saw Lions of Dissent suddenly explode into a 3D technicolour reality – playing back to back sell-out live shows, selling 400 tickets in the process and releasing their spaced-out debut EP via Lion Rebel Recordings. The group has firmly established itself as an authentic and radical, music and art collective.

Since inception, the group’s self-produced music videos have received 1000s of plays on YouTube, along with worldwide press and radio coverage, including plays on BBC 6 Music and heavy rotation in both mainland Europe and South America.

They have picked up plaudits from the likes of Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins, Bella Union Records), Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), who used an image of the group in a BJM video, Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6), Lee Scratch Perry and Simone Marie Butler (Primal Scream).

In late 2017 LOD released their debut EP ‘What would it feel like to be free’, whilst also making their live debut at a sold-out Newhampton Arts Centre, in Wolverhampton. This was followed by a second consecutive sell out at the Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham in April 2018. Both shows were a victorious statement of intent, that proved LOD are not just another group.

It was quickly evident from day one that LOD would not be a traditional band, instead choosing to embrace a more collective and collaborative ethos. A sonic and visual space odyssey, orbiting its own sphere – self-producing every aspect of their creative output, from design and screen printing to curating their own photo-shoots and video content, but with a predominant focus on the most important part, music.
