stand out performances alongside some of the biggest
names in rock at the Gods Of Metal, Sweden Rock
and Rocklahoma festivals isn't testimony enough,
then new album "Return Of The Pride" will
surely once again assert White Lion as a legitimate
musical force. The first White Lion studio record
in over 16 years , "Return Of The Pride"
is simply put "classic rock in it's truest
form and a representation of the musical influences
that have attached themselves over time", declares
lead singer Mike Tramp. White Lion initially left
its mark in the late 80's with a series of hit singles
and videos that defined the MTV generation, thanks
to the likes of "Wait", "When The
Children Cry", "Tell Me", "Broken
Heart" and "Little Fighter". But
equally so, the band was also recognized for its
signature album tracks that transcended socio-political
themes such as "Lady Of The Valley", "Cry
For Freedom", "Lights N Thunder"
and "Warsong". Recorded during 2007 in
both Australia and Copenhagen and in between touring
commitments, "Return Of The Pride" kicks
off with "Sangre de Cristo", a thunderous
epic that ventures into lyrical and musical territories
best heard, than described. "Battle At Little
Big Horn" is the album's other soaring epic,
a musical re-enactment of one of Native America's
most significant historical event's, Custer's Last
Stand. Hook laden rockers such as "Dream",
"Live Your Life" and "Finally See
The Light" maintain a positive musical and
lyrical vibe throughout the album, whereas "Gonna
Do It My Way" and "Let Me Be Me"
are the modern day "Living On The Edge"
songs of rebellion.
Produced by Mike Tramp and bassist Claus Langeskov, Tramp says of the album's title: "Return Of The Pride" could be interpreted in many ways. In a musical sense we have taken a step back in time, rather than a step forward in time. Over the course of this album lyrically and musically many concepts and themes have been explored, maybe "Return Of The Pride" means something entirely different". Featuring what is now a truly international line-up of musicians handpicked by Mike himself, the band will hit the road again in the summer of 2008. "We are not interested in fixing what isn't broke. Our mission is simple, to bring the classic sound of White Lion to the people across the world that still live for that music".
