The last time the British & Irish Lions toured Australia in 2001 the enormous Lions support at the first test shocked the Wallabies and some say sealed the victory for the Lions. The Australian’s famously responded by giving away tickets to the second test and allegedly resorting to amplifying the home support.
To give the Lions and their supporters the edge in 2013, Rugby inspired fashion brand Ruckstar has produced the first ever Lions anthem, The Voice of a Thousand Men, by RUCK STARS to arm the supporters and to inspire the Lions to victory.
The song is a new version, with Lions inspired lyrics, of the Swords of a thousand men, by Tenpole Tudor and it has a promotional video featuring 4 larger than life supporters hailing from the 4 constituent Lions nations, and their intrepid antics.
The song is on sale as a download from iTunes and other reputable online music stores, with all proceeds to the Wooden Spoon Society.
Ruckstar Founder Neil Boote explains “our anthem is a plea to the lucky traveling supporters to take with them the voices of those supporting from home. Its also a fantastic sing along tune!” He added, “with the Rugby family behind us who knows we might make Rugby number 1. and challenge football’s musical dominance”
