Following the year long tour for the debut album, Saigon Kick immediately returned to the studio to record the follow-up, The Lizard, in 1992. The gold selling album spawned the band’s biggest hit single, “Love Is on the Way”, which reached No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also received a gold single. In addition, the video for “Love Is On The Way” hit #1 in the Top 10 MTV countdown.
