Published Mar 07, 2012Toronto dance rock trio Lioness have issued a self-titled EP and some remix collections since forming in 2007, but the pride are just about to enter a new phase in their career with the announcement that they'll soon deliver their debut full-length, The Golden Killer.
A press release explains that the album arrives on April 17 through New Romantic. Produced by Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Holy Fuck), the 12-track outing is said to showcase "ecstatic dance and heavy rock moods," and points to their sound coming off like a cross between Daft Punk and Black Sabbath. A tracklisting has yet been revealed, but you can check out the spooky trailer for the album down below.
While the group's new disc is primed with "dark dance floor fillers," the album closes with "Stay Awhile," a "mournful" tribute to two fallen friends (You Say Party drummer Devon Clifford and Toronto artist Will Munro) that passed away during the writing sessions for The Golden Killer.
Lioness will celebrate their debut album a little early with a record release party at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern on April 13.
