His Dream of Lions have finally announced their new EP, Pseudo Star. The EP was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Ben Green at Ivakota Studio, and will be released on February 16th.
The band’s lead singer, Seth Coggeshall, had this to say about the EP: “Pseudo Star is about that feeling. It captures that feeling not only with the subject matter of the songs, but also in the tonal extremes the record sits in between. Pseudo Star is funny, yet serious. It can at times be epic, and other times intimate. We’re playing fun rock music that has moments that sound really empowering. However the lyrics, and the sentiments in the songs don’t portray a confident or powerful person. Instead I sound unsure, and a little self-deprecating. Despite all this though, the point of Pseudo Star isn’t to encourage listeners to revel in self-doubt, or self-pity. It’s about effort in the face of uncertainty. It’s hard to know where you’re heading. And maybe we will always feel like were at the halfway point. Always feel like a Pseudo Star…But Pseudo Stars still shine, and that’s more than enough reason to press on.”
“Love Me Like I’m Sick” is the first single from Pseudo Star and was premiered via Baeble Music. The track features a sound that is a departure from His Dream of Lions’ pop-rock style with new kinds of synths and drum sounds.
Since forming in 2012, the band released their first EP’s a year later, Part One and Part Two. His Dream of Lions debuted a music video in 2015 with Fuse, ahead of their self-titled release that year.
