Added to this, The Lion's Roar (album) will be lavishly re-packaged for release on 17th September with bountiful bonus material including DVD (on-the-road documentary and single videos), additional tracks, poster, a 20 page booklet and FAK guitar pick. The album has sold 150, 000 copies worldwide (30, 000 in the UK alone) and is fast becoming one of the biggest indie breakthroughs success stories of 2012.
