When The Mighty Fall LP Available On iTunes Now
Alexandria, Virginia’s own- FIGHT THE LION are thrilled to be sharing the bill on the ROCKSTAR ENERGY’s UPROAR Festival with some of today’s hottest Hard Rock/Metal acts such as Disturbed, Avenged
Sevenfold, Stone Sour, Halestorm, Hellyeah, among others. On Tuesday, August 31st, FIGHT THE LION featuring Jake Mimikos (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Ron Cruz (Guitar, Vocals), Jason Proctor (Bass), and Shawn Battle (Drums, Vocals) will be hitting the Jagermeister Mobile Stage at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia.
In support of their self-released, debut album- When the Mighty Fall, currently available on iTunes, all the members of FIGHT THE LION are equally honored to be included on the ROCKSTAR ENERGY UPROAR line-up. Drummer Shawn Battle had this to say, "After hearing our new CD, Steven at Jagermeister called to invite us to play on the Jagermeister Mobile Stage. We were psyched to get that kind of reaction, and it's been going like that ever since.” He goes on to add, “We're all fans of these bands and are excited to be sharing the stage with them."
The big stage is no stranger to FIGHT THE LION. Since the quartet started writing together back in 2009, they have gone on to play over 80 shows sharing the stage with legendary acts such as Poison, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Candlebox, Lifehouse and Thriving Ivory.
On When the Mighty Fall, FIGHT THE LION shine with a variety of styles, crossing multiple genres from the album’s title track, to the full-throttle rock and fan favorite "Fire it Up!” while “Time Taker”, as heard on DC101, highlights a more progressive side to the band’s sound.
