"This crew combines 70's hard rock and psyche elements, perfected by veteran artists like Alice Cooper, with buzzing, stoner guitar riffs and Drenik's strong wail." - Billboard Magazine, February 28, 2009
"Remember the first time you heard Soundgarden's Louder Than Love? OK, it's been awhile, but that doesn't mean local boys Lions weren't able to turn the bong-rattling bottom end of last year's No Generation into something totally their own. Total fucking riffage." - Michael Bertin, Austin Chronicle SXSW Critics Pick
Formed in late Summer 2005, Austin, TX’s LIONS have been receiving coast-to-coast praise since their inception and original release of the "No Generation" LP in 2007. With heavy touring and an unrelenting will to rock harder than anyone else, the band's endless hustle has been garnering them a massive fanbase. LIONS create a blend of retro riffage, artful noise, melodic interludes, and revolutionary attitude with a live show that has been described as "furious" with "a full-frontal assault" that will leave you "half-deaf and disoriented."
LIONS have toured in the US w/ the Toadies, Blue Cheer, Burning Brides, and Local H, and has shared the stage with heavy hitters such as Supersuckers, The Misfits, Valient Thorr, Early Man, DMBQ, Nebula, Russian Circles, Daughters...receiving critical acclaim from media outlets such as Jambase.com, the Austin Chronicle, Dallas Observer, Houston Press, Nashville Scene, The Onion, Real Detroit Weekly, and many more.
