Judah & the Lion have released another new track from the forthcoming Pep Talks, “Why Did You Run?” – out today and available via your preferred listening service.

“The first verse is about me getting a call from my mom when she was in jail but I didn’t know
what to do or say. And, of course, right after I called my dad but he didn’t answer and it felt like a very lonely moment. It was like, ‘Oh, I’m in the world alone.’ I imagined how hard it’d be to be a 13-year-old kid dealing with a divorce, because here I am, a 25-year-old, and it just rocked me.” – Judah Akers on “Why Did You Run?”

The album, which includes the previously released single “Over my head,” “Quarter-Life Crisis,” “Pep Talks,” and last week’s critically-acclaimed “pictures (feat. Kacey Musgraves),” also includes assists from former touring mate Jon Bellion and Darren King (ex-Mutemath). Full tracklisting and art below. Fans can pre-order the album starting today via https://JATL.lnk.to/peptalks.

In addition, Judah & the Lion will play two showcases at this year’s SXSW – March 9th at A Night of Sweet Innovation Presented by Dell Small Business and Tiff’s Treats hosted by Brooklyn Decker & Andy Roddick and March 14th at StubHub’s Sound Stage hosted by COLLiDE at Banger’s Sausage & Beer Garden.

Before hitting the road this summer, the band is bringing Pep Talks: An Intimate Album Listening and Storytelling Experience Presented by Judah & the Lion to six cities across the southeast this April. At each event, Judah Akers, Brian Macdonald, and Nate Zuercher will be on hand to tell the story behind Pep Talks, giving fans an exclusive, intimate listening experience ahead of the release.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: As you might have surmised, my own background on the band is limited based on all the agenda items being handled over on PiercingMetal but hey we are still here with the announcement for the readers of “The Chronicles” because we always aim to broaden the scope whenever possible to do so. I wonder which of our readers are interested in this tour and will be rallying for them at one of the numerous dates on the run. Chime in down below in the comments and I will see you next time.
