This summer and early fall, Judah & the Lion will play their biggest headlining tour yet in support of their new album, Pep Talks, released May 3, 2019. The North American leg of the Pep Talks Worldwide Tour kicks off in Kansas City August 10 under the stars at Starlight. The group's third LP, Pep Talks takes a hard turn into deeply personal terrain and takes the listener on a bracingly candid, surprisingly anthemic journey, while shoring up its one-of-a-kind sound of heart-pounding folk, bluegrass, rock, hip-hop and electronic production.
Judah & the Lion has been a family unto itself since forming at Nashville's Belmont University in 2011. The trio's differences became their strength as they crafted their sound in a bluegrass-heavy debut album, Kids These Days, and a mold-breaking follow-up, Folk Hop n' Roll. In 2017, their triumphant "Take It All Back" topped the alternative charts and paved the way for a Best New Rock/Alternative Artist win at the 2018 iHeartRadio Awards.
