Maryland-based reggae/rock band LIONIZE, winners of the 2010 High Times Magazine ‘Doobie Award’ for Best Reggae/Soul Record for ‘SPACE POPE AND THE GLASS MACHINE (for which they beat out such nominees as Matisyahu, Easystar Allstars and Tarrus Riley) have been added to the lineup for the 2011 Vans Warped Tour where they are set to perform on the Alternative Press/Advent Stage. Head over to the Warped Tour website to check out an exclusive message from the band:

Lionize has been busy touring and gearing up for the Feb 8th release of their new album DESTRUCTION MANUAL on Southern California based indie label, Hardline Entertainment.
Gaining fans across the world, LIONIZE takes pride in their original sound, DIY work ethic and fiery live shows. DESTRUCTION MANUAL, (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox) finds the band continuing its exploration of the stoner-rock, funk and reggae landscapes.
This twelve-song LP calls to mind classic reggae and rock albums with a decidedly modern spin. The band's foundation on drums and bass are LaMel Randolgh and Henry Upton who hint at a rock-and-roll version of Sly and Robbie joined with the classic scorching Hammond organ and key sounds from Chris Brooks and the commanding guitar and vocal work of Nathan Bergman.
Reggae heavyweights David Hinds and Selwyn Brown of Steel Pulse lend their vocal talents on the track ‘Killers and Crooks’ as well as stalwart guitar work from Tim Sult of Clutch who also lends his talents throughout this record. Lionize continues to tour over 200 dates a year, having been tapped to open up for bands such as Clutch, Galactic, Steel Pulse and Bad Brains. LIONIZE also pulled double duty backing and supporting Lee "Scratch" Perry, garnering a slew of positive reviews.
Between recording in Kingston, Jamaica with Sidney Mills (Steel Pulse), collaborating on and off stage with artists such as Ozomatli and Chali 2na, and supporting heavy metal favorites Kylesa and cKy, the band begins 2011 on quite an auspicious note.
With DESTRUCTION MANUAL set to be released on Feb 8, Lionize is wrapping up a winter tour with Authority Zero tomorrow night in San Diego and will be launching a tour with Streetlight Manifesto on Feb. 10. The band’s run on the entire Vans Warped Tour will kick off June 24th in Dallas (see dates below.)

LIONIZE also contribute one track off of "Destruction Manual" to Hardline Entertainment’s latest label sampler which is available as a free download at
