Fairfax, VA | October 1, 2014 – Alternative rock band, His Dream Of Lions, has been hard at work in order to ensure that people realize they are more than “just another Warped Tour band.” Recently, the band revealed their EP artwork in addition to the concept of their upcoming release, “Part Two,” proving how much thought this group puts into everything they do. Now, the band has paired up with All Music for the exclusive premiere of their lead single, “The Pace Car.” His Dream Of Lions described the track as:
“One of the defining songs for this record, we knew that if we could pull off some of the thematic elements that happen in this track people would know that we aren’t here to be pigeon holed as just another pop punk boy band … Lyrically, ‘The Pace Car’ wears the message of the EP on its sleeve “I wanna’ I oughta’ rob the world and sell off all the rest.”
“The Pace Car” is heavily influenced by Queen, which is apparent in the operatic and grand moments that occur towards the end of the track, especially throughout the vocal line. You can listen to “The Pace Car” exclusively on All Music here:

About His Dream Of Lions:
We’re all after something, and it’s the thrill of the chase that keeps us on. For the five young alternative rockers in His Dream Of Lions, the thrill they find is in chasing their dreams. Having known one another through the local Fairfax Virginia music scene, guitarist Nick Jones, singer Seth Coggeshall, and bassist Blair Kilner came together during the spring of 2012 to form the band that would eventually become His Dream Of Lions. After a full year of non-stop gigging and writing, the band’s lineup was finalized with the addition of drummer Jack Dunigan and keyboardist Colby Witko.
With the new members in place, the group quickly realized they needed a name that would stand to signify the moral intent behind the band. In Ernest Hemingway’s novel, “The Old Man and The Sea,” the main character experiences reoccurring dreams of lions playing on the beach. Even with the knowledge that they could drown, the lions carry on, representing a sense of adventure the old man once had. By taking the name, His Dream Of Lions, the members hope to be reminded of the ambitious spirit they promised never to lose.
Building off the support of their loyal and rapidly growing fan base, His Dream Of Lions continued onto a string of successes, playing with artists such as Aaron Carter, Jonny Craig, There For Tomorrow, Australia’s Got Talent winner Joe Robinson, as well as releasing a critically acclaimed cover of Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem”.
By the time June of 2013 rolled around, the band felt they had generated sufficient buzz, both local and national, to warrant the recording of their double EP, a concept record inspired by their love of storytelling. Once hitting the studio with producer Ben Green (Fairweather), the band released their debut record simply titled “Part One” in March of 2014. The opening track, “Novel”, has gained significant commercial success, climbing to #7 on the NMW Top 40 Chart, and #7 on the NMW Hot 100 Singles Chart.
Following the success of “Novel,” the band decided to partner with Bryan Stars for the release of their “Elsa” music video, the band’s second single off of “Part One.” With no sign of letting up from the Virginia based quintet, listeners can expect to find the smashing continuation of “Part One”, wittily entitled “Part Two,” later this fall.
