Release date: 14.09.2018 PRESS ASSETS: Wav Hi-Res Cover (Artwork by Simen Skari) Press photos (By Caroline Teinum) "I Am Lion, I Am Yours" is the second single off our upcoming album, "Wake", and its opening track. In terms of our album being about life from start to end, "I Am Lion, I Am Yours" is at the formative beginning. It is about conformity – the promises of getting everything you desire, as long as you fall into the ranks and do as you’re expected to. It is about feeling safe and protected, but as you’re growing up discovering that security has limits. We are never fully in control. The song title came up when our vocalist tried to make a melody, and even though we don’t really know what it means, we liked it. The Lion is a symbol of something powerful and reassuring as a protector, but really frightening as an opponent. The song marks a transition in Leonov, as we’ve gone darker and heavier. We tuned down our guitars a ludicrous amount and eventually bought baritones. We found inspiration in the doom genre, to make a dark and slow song that almost sound like a march of brainwashed, blinded zombie-people following the currents of society.
