Judah & the Lion has just announced new tour dates for this fall, and the schedule includes stops in several Arkansas and nearby cities! We’re pretty psyched, and if you’ve ever heard or seen them, you surely will be, too. Their entire tour is likely to sell out, seeing how their latest full-length album and several of its tracks have topped a number of Billboard charts with ease.

Years before forming one of Nashville’s most genre-bending bands, the members of Judah & the Lion grew up in separate corners of the U.S., listening to every type of music that came their way. They loved it all: the twang of folk, the beat of hip-hop, the drive of rock & roll, the punch of pop. Later, after college brought all four musicians to Tennessee, it only made sense to combine those different backgrounds – and different sounds – together.

With their second full-length album, “Folk Hop N Roll,” the guys shine a light on the place where their influences overlap. It’s a wide-ranging sound, with fuzz bass, hip-hop percussion, distorted banjo riffs, and super-sized melodies all stirred into the same mixing pot.

“Kids These Days,” the band’s debut record, climbed to No. 4 four on the Billboard Folk Chart and No. 2 on the genre-wide Heatseekers chart after its release in September 2014. Their newest effort was produced by award-winner Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton).

Anthemic and wildly creative, “Folk Hop N Roll” is unlike anything else in modern music. It’s a rule-breaking record, with Judah & the Lion creating a sound that belongs entirely to them. From the earthy stomp of roots music to the bold bounce of hip-hop, “Folk Hop N Roll” casts a wide net, proof that Judah & the Lion has developed quite the roar. Their newest hit single, “Take It All Back 2.0”, recently reached the No. 1 spot on the Alternative charts.

An independent band whose success has arrived not on the back of some big-budget major label, but through the band’s own touring, Judah & the Lion has built a large, loyal fan base on the road, particularly by landing top spots at major festivals and venues across the nation and globe. The band also is spending this year touring the U.S. with Twenty One Pilots, Kaleo, Incubus and Jimmy Eat World, and is crossing the Atlantic after its fall U.S. Tour for headling dates around Europe to close out 2017.
