Nashville based trio Judah & the Lion are thrilled that their debut full-length studio album Kids These Days entered BILLBOARD's Heatseekers chart at #2 and the Folk Albums chart at #4 its first week out.

The album garnered the #1 spot for Heatseekers in both the South Atlantic and South Central regions and the #4 spot for Heatseekers in East North Central, Mountain and West North Central regions.

In addition, Kids These Days entered several other Billboard charts and their song "Kickin' da Leaves" off the new album clocked in more than 110K streams since the September 9th release and made Spotify's VIRAL 50 Chart alongside Meghan Trainor, Fall Out Boy, Betty Who, Karen O and more!

Chart success is nothing new for Judah & the Lion, whose April 2013 EP Sweet Tennessee debuted at #2 on Billboard's Bluegrass Chart, #9 on Heatseekers and #15 on Folk.

However, with the help of producer Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson) and engineer Pete Lyman (Best Coast, Jason Isbell, Ben Harper) who mastered the album, the band have reached new heights with Kids These Days and they are ready to take the new songs on the road this fall when they embark on their first ever US headlining tour, with a full list of confirmed dates below.
