NEWS: Lioness summon "The Night", announce CDN & US tour dates

Lioness offer "The Night", the first single off their debut full-length album The Golden Killer due out April 17 on New Romantic. "The Night" is available now as a free download on Soundcloud

Crashing drums and Vanessa's soulful wail conjure the darkness as she howls "Every night your shadows haunt you even from your bed" describing the night terrors that inspired "The Night". 

Night terrors or "Hag Syndrome" has been called many things over the centuries, but every culture has a similar interpretation of the paralyzing fear that comes in the night. Vanessa described the experience as "cold bones grasping and digging into my torso while being unable to move or scream."

 Lioness also unveil the album art for The Golden Killer, featuring a majestic lion head handmade by singer Vanessa Fischer. 

Lioness celebrate the release of The Golden Killer on Friday April 13 at the Horseshoe in Toronto.
