BIG LITTLE LIONS ANNOUNCE ALIVE AND WELL

BIG LITTLE LIONS SET TO RELEASE ALIVE AND WELL ON FEBRUARY 23, 2018

TITLE TRACK PREMIERES ON B-SIDES AND BADLANDS

"On the deliciously jaunty hook, they poke fun at a smorgasbord of archaic superstitions, claiming a deliberate daring to test their boundaries and their luck." - B-sides and Badlands

TORONTO, ON - JANUARY 12, 2018 -  Big Little Lions turn helpless apprehensions into hopeless optimism with their latest album Alive and Well, a collection of songs that manage to capture this moment in time in a way only a songwriter can. The group's 3rd studio album, set for a February 23rd (Far Flung) release, features 13 original songs that deliver their signature pop-folk shimmer with a new lyrical edge inspired by the polarity of our world. Check out the brand new video for the first single and title track that premiered yesterday on B-sides and Badlands. The duo will kick off their Canadian tour in Red Deer, AB - followed by over 20 stops including Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Ottawa, Toronto, and Guelph. Full details can be found at https://biglittlelions.com/tour. Alive and Well will be released digitally worldwide via The Orchard, and physically on www.biglittlelions.com.

Their most cohesive project to date, Alive and Well dances from songs that acknowledge human frailty and modern preoccupations to anthems of hope and resistance. It turns the Lions’ illuminating songwriting to the tasks of buoying spirits, inspiring sing-a-longs, and lighting candles of optimism in difficult times. The Alive and Well tour will see the Lions perform across the Canadian prairies, around the Great Lakes and beyond, dotting a final line of concerts from Ohio all the way to Florida. Watching Big Little Lions on the stage, audiences will understand what the closing lyrics of Alive and Well proclaim so clearly, when people gather to share music, ‘love is all there is’.
