Okay, so if you don’t know who Steve Harris is…go whack yourself in the bridge of your nose with a tack hammer. I’ll give you a minute…
Now you are either reading on, knowing who Steve Harris is, or you’re nursing a broken nose. If you still don’t know who Steve Harris is, simply stop reading and go here and educate yourself, you uncultured bastard. Now that we have that out of the way, I’m pleased and excited to announce that Steve Harris is releasing a solo album that he has been working on during downtime. Guitarworld.com broke the news this morning that:
Iron Maiden bassist and chief songwriter Steve Harris has announced the release of his debut solo album, British Lion.
Now I haven’t a clue what his solo work will sound like, but if it is anything even remotely similar to the tunes that he has written for Iron Maiden, then I’m sure it will be interesting at the least very bit. IronMaiden.com describes the album as:
With a decidedly heavy rock-vibe this roaring debut paints with a full palette of sounds; brooding, melancholic, righteously indignant and exuberantly heavy. With Kevin Shirley at the mixing helm – whose credits include Iron Maiden as well as Led Zeppelin, Journey and Rush among many others – this is an album to sink your teeth into.
The track list is after the fold. Look for British Lion on EMI records on September 25th!
