Judah & the Lion released the stop-motion video for their rising Alternative single "Why Did You Run?" - #22 at Alternative radio this week. Premiered with the help of Forbes, Judah & the Lion's Brian Macdonald explains: "The lyrics in this song are painful, but the music is happy and hopeful. As humans we all will understand that contrast at some point in our lives, and the pain allows us to find hope."

Last week, Judah & the Lion added more dates to their Pep Talks Worldwide Tourthat kicks off in July and brings them to Europe, The UK and North American through November. The massive headline run is in support of the band's critically acclaimed new studio album Pep Talks which NPR called "life-affirming" and tickets for all shows are on sale now via www.judahandthelion.com.

Pep Talks is the band's third full-length studio album and was released on May 3, 2019 via Cletus the Van/Caroline. It's an intimate look at vocalist/songwriter Judah Akers life that was personally unravelling while the band's success was skyrocketing. Pep Talks is Judah & the Lion's first to feature outside collaborators, including Grammy Album of the Year Winner Kacey Musgraves and Alternative staple and past touring mate JonBellion. The album debuted at #2 on several Billboard Charts, including AlternativeAlbums, Rock Albums, Internet Albums, and Independent Albums, #4 Vinyl Albums, and landed at #18 on the Billboard 200 upon release. Since March, the band has made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The TODAY Show, and Good Morning Football, been featured by Billboard, Men's Health, BUILD Series, Alternative Press and even curated their own issue ofGood Grit Magazine.
