The Lion's Roar is the second studio album by Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit, released in January 2012 via Wichita Recordings.

First Aid Kit are a Swedish folk duo formed in 2007 comprising siblings Klara Söderberg (who sings and plays guitar), and her older sister Johanna Söderberg (who sings backing vocals and plays keyboards).

Their 2008 YouTube video cover of the song "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by Fleet Foxes spread their name rapidly on the Internet.  After that they have achieved world wide fame with their harmonious singing and country and folk influenced songs, leading to a nomination for a Brit Awards as one of the five best international groups in 2015.

In 2015 they were accompanied on tours by drummer Scott Simpson and pedal steel guitarist Melvin 'The Tiger' Duffy.

The Lion's Roar was produced by Mike Mogis and features contributions from Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and The Felice Brothers. The album is the duo's first album to be recorded in America and juxtaposes sadness and beauty in the best traditions of folk and country music. 

This carefully constructed collection deftly succeeds in setting references to their home town of Stockholm and long dark Scandinavian winters against an unforced backdrop of country-rock swing.

The album was critically acclaimed upon release and the album holds an aggregate score of 81/100 on Metacritic which indicates "universal acclaim".

The album debuted at number one in Sweden and number 35 in the UK. It also reached #36 in Australia and #4 on the US Folk charts and #65 on the US Billboard 200 Albums charts.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  The Lion's Roar, Emmylou, Blue, I Found A Way and Wolf.

This LP Record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve and includes a CD album copy, pressed in Europe.
