Over a year ago, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore, Lionheart, decided to call it quits. However, it wasn’t long before they realized that walking away was futile. The group has announced their return via the new single “Trial By Fire.” The song will be on their upcoming full-length Welcome To The West Coast II, a sequel of sorts to one of their most acclaimed albums that brought forth a new era in California hardcore.
“When we started writing these songs we had no idea if they’d ever get released at all so there was no pressure, no timelines, and no expectations,” said the band. “We wrote whatever the fuck we wanted and we ended up with the best shit we’ve ever written. No gimmicks, no hype, no bullshit- ‘WTTWC II’ is pissed, heavy, and straight-up.“
Lionheart stormed onto the West Coast hardcore scene in 2007, taking influence from bands like Blood For Blood, Hatebreed, and Ringworm; the band came out swinging with a full blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. Since then they’ve released five albums, including 2016’s Love Don’t Live Here, a well-received record that charted #2 on the iTunes Metal Charts.

When we announced our breakup, over a year ago, we meant it. Balancing jobs and personal lives w/ trying to tour full time was impossible, so we chose to take a step back. However, it wasn’t long before we all missed it. This is what we’ve known for over a decade and this is who we are. We all miss playing shows and releasing music, so fuck it: We are back. We’ll never be a full time band again, but close friends of ours have encouraged us to join them on a short run, so we will share that info later today. We never should have broken up in the first place, but we’ve been fucking up since day 1 so why change now? Life is short. See you soon. LHHC
