LION’S SHARE Releases Music Video For Cover Of ‘Knock On Wood’

Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE has made a cover version of the hit song «Knock On Wood» available on streaming services and digital service providers.

LION’S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson commented: «We wanted to release something cool and unexpected as a Christmas gift to our fans. This song will be perfect cranked up loud at your New Year’s Eve party. Who knows — maybe I’ll crash your party as well, like I do in our new video.»

LION’S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss added: «I kept hearing the Amii Stewart version every time I turned on the radio in my car. After a while, I started thinking about ‘Children Of The Grave’ by BLACK SABBATH and how we could make this into a great hard rock version. Little by little, the arrangement started to take shape in my head. The song was a huge hit worldwide when Nils Patrik and I were teenagers and even went to Number One on Billboard. We hope our version will bring back a lot of great memories for people.»

In late 2018, LION’S SHARE released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog — remastered with new artwork — on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The band have since released a few more digital singles, some of which will and some of which won’t end up on the forthcoming full-length album.

Both Johansson and Chriss remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.

«We are aware our fans want a new album and the plan was to release one in 2020, but we all know what happened then,» they said. «We had just started playing live again with a couple of headline shows in Germany in March and were gearing up towards a new album and tour. Since we think it’s very important to tour behind a new album, we just have to wait until things go back to ‘normal’ again. Until then, we plan to release a new single every 2-3 months and keep building our fan base.»

The LION’S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISSMEGADETHKING DIAMONDHAMMERFALLSYMPHONY XCHIMAIRATHERIONYNGWIE MALMSTEENCANDLEMASS, etc. Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (ARCH ENEMYOPETHSYMPHONY XAMON AMARTH), Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy Award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (ROXETTEEUROPEGlenn Hughes).

LION’S SHARE has toured with bands like MOTÖRHEADMANOWARDIOSAXONICED EARTHNEVERMOREU.D.O. (ex-ACCEPT), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and has played many of the major rock and metal festivals.
