Info for Lions

Tokyo Motor Fist’s self-titled debut scratched an itch for music fans who have been starving for new albums from Trixter or Danger Danger (and who also happen to love Def Leppard) and now the band delivers another fix with their sophomore album, LIONS. Once again, the band delivers exactly what fans want and would expect with their catchy and uplifting hard rock.

On the making of the new album, Steve Brown says, “From day one when I put together Tokyo Motor Fist, I knew that this was a genuine rock group, not a fake cash grab project, a so-called super-group or imaginary band that makes one record and never plays live…..TMF is the REAL DEAL! Our debut release proved that, our live shows cemented that fact, and the worldwide response and success to the debut was so overwhelming that a follow-up record was a sure thing. Here we present you with “LIONS”….next level stuff for the band, as you will hear. It’s a great feeling after 30 years of making records to be at the top of my game as a writer, singer, player, and producer. So proud of my band….Ted, Chuck and Greg all delivered incredible performances and took my songs to a higher ground. I brought in my rock 'n roll brother, the great Bruno Ravel, to mix “LIONS". He is without a doubt one of the most talented all around musicians/producers I know. His expertise and ears took this album over the top. It was mastered by Maor Appelbaum, who did a fantastic job. It sounds brilliant! Lastly, we are on the best label in the business, FRONTIERS RECORDS! My friend, Serafino Perugino allowed TMF the extra time and the support needed to make the record of our dreams.I can’t wait for you all hear this….TOKYO MOTOR FIST “LIONS” is the positive & feel good record the WORLD needs right now…It’s gonna Blow Your Mind!!!”

Ted Poley adds, “Couldn’t be prouder to be a part of such an amazing band! The new album is absolutely stunning! Steve Brown‘s songwriting has hit a new high. ”LIONS” contains some of my favorite songs that I have ever sung on in my career. The TMF rhythm section of Chuck and Greg are an unstoppable dream team. This record should come with a warning label because you will be singing along with it for days! The hooks just keep coming! And we hope that you will too!”

"Our new album "LIONS" is by far and away the BEST album I've ever had the pleasure to play on! Each and every song is outstanding and this new record reaches new sonic and songwriting heights yet achieved in my career!! A-a-a-a-and you can quote me on this!!!!" adds Chuck Burgi.

"I absolutely loved our first album, but this one is a game changer for this band! The songs, playing, and soul of this group are definitely captured on this record. It was an absolute pleasure to be there when the legendary Dennis DeYoung recorded his cameo on the album's namesake tune,”LIONS". He took an already great song to the next level. I can’t wait to perform these tunes with my TMF brothers in the hopefully near future! I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I did playing on it!" says bassist Greg Smith

The album's title track features a guest keyboard solo by none other than rock legend Dennis DeYoung and a guest saxophone spot from Mark Rivera (Billy Joel, Ringo Starr) on 'Sedona'.

Written and produced by Steve Brown, "Lions" was mixed by Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger, The Defiants) and mixed by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Yes, Dokken).

TMF anticipates hitting the road in support of the album once the world is back up and running.

Beefy and energetic, “Tokyo Motor Fist” is sure to please not only Ted Poley, Danger Danger, and Trixter's fans, but all fans of Def Leppard, Bon Jovi and Cheap Trick and melodic hard rock in general. Don't miss this superb release!

Tokyo Motor Fist
featuring Danger Danger singer Ted Poley and Trixter guitarist Steve Brown as well as former Rainbow members Greg Smith on bass and Chuck Burgi on drums will be releasing their sophomore album via Frontiers Music Srl this upcoming summer.

“With Danger Danger seemingly never releasing a new studio album, first it was bassist Bruno Ravel who hooked up with some Danger Danger alumni — singer Paul Laine and guitarist Rob Marcello (the latter is still listed as the guitarist in the band but does anyone really believe that is the case with Trixter guitarist Steve Brown or Ted Poley solo band axeman Steve “Man” Mazza handling the guitar duties ever since late 2016) — to form The Defiants. That group’s debut album fared very well given that it landed the #2 spot on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2016.

Not to be undone, Poley formed a new semi “supergroup” with Brown, Greg Smith (Ted Nugent, Rainbow, Alice Cooper) and Chuck Burgi (Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Joe Lynn Turner). The result is a much lower charting effort on the Sleaze Roxx‘s year-end poll so I am going to acknowledge that The Defiants have come up with a much stronger record than Tokyo Motor Fist. In any case, it’s nice to get two records instead of one in the form of two spin off records from a few current and/or former Danger Danger members rather than a Danger Danger studio album that may never actually materialize.”

This album contains no booklet.
