"Singing ‘Lion’s Den,’ Rønnenfelt is a certified drama slinger and I will buy whatever he’s selling.”
– Pitchfork

“With an ensemble large and sophisticated enough to both realize Rønnenfelt's dark and sultry visions and add its own nuances to them, Marching Church has made the definitive record of its scene and era.”
– NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”

“falsetto-laden new song ‘Lion’s Den’ is a slithering groove that continues that evolution towards a shadowy, sinister form of accessibility.” - Stereogum 

Next week sees the release of Marching Church’s enthralling new album, Telling It Like It Is, the Danish collective’s second full-length and easily their sharpest work.

After releasing singles, Heart of Life” and “Lion’s Den,” they now present the latter’s visual accompaniment. Featuring the core Marching Church band -- Iceage’s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt and Johan S. Weith, Lower’s Kristian Emdal and Anton Rothstein, Jakob Emil Lamdahl and Hand of Dust’s Bo Høyer Hansen -- the “Lion’s Den” video was filmed between Copenhagen, New York and Tokyo.

Rønnenfelt comments, “Directed by a man they thought to be dead, it's a metropolitan video for a metropolitan beat; taking cabs in the middle of the night, driving as if to save your soul. Dancing in slow motion because the air is made of oil, and everyone's a criminal because the world is a crime."

Watch the video for “Lion’s Den”:
