British Lion, the side-project of Iron Maiden bassist and sole constant member Steve Harris, have premiered the video for their latest single ‘The Burning’ exclusively on Planet Rock.
Following October 2018’s ‘Spit Fire’ and last autumn’s ‘Lightning’, ‘The Burning’ is the third single to be lifted from British Lion’s album of the same name, ‘The Burning’, which is unleashed to the world this Friday (17th January).
‘The Burning’ video is filmed in stark black-and-white and melds footage of singer Richard Taylor belting out the track in Great Yarmouth with clips of British Lion in their imperious live glory.

Alongside Steve on bass and keyboards and Richard on vocals, British Lion consists of guitarists David Hawkins and Grahame Leslie, and drummer Simon Dawson.
