After the release of their debut EP, rotation on BBC 6 Music and selling out their first live show in November last year, Lions Of Dissent have plenty to roar about.

Now, the former The Ticket Unsigned page stars from Wolverhampton return with their first official single - Honey from Hell - and a show in Birmingham to promote it.

Described by singer and lead songwriter Tim Baker as about 'getting what you always dreamt of, but finding it was actually a nightmare', Honey from Hell is released worldwide via Lion Rebel Recordings on April 6.

The single release coincides with their first Birmingham live show, presented by Future Perfect and taking place at The Sunflower Lounge on April 14. It follows on from the success of that sell-out show at the Newhampton Arts Centre.

A spokesperson for the band said: "It was quickly evident from day one that LOD would not be a traditional band, instead choosing a more collective and collaborative ethos – self producing every aspect of their output, with a predominant focus on the most important part, music."

Support at the Sunflower Lounge will be provided by Matters and Tinned Astronaut.

Doors open at 7:30pm and tickets, costing £5.50, are available from
