After several DIY years of establishing themselves via three critically acclaimed EPs and thousands of road miles, LIONS LIONS takes the next step of their career and signs with HOLLYWOOD WASTE RECORDS. Adding to Hollywood Waste’s already eclectic artist roster, LIONS LIONS brings a new (yet familiar) voice to the label with a post-hardcore sound reminiscent of Story Of The Year, Finch and Thrice.
LIONS LIONS states, “We’re proud to be working with a label that supports diverse music. We’re excited about our new album and think it shows a side of the band that our current fans haven’t had a chance to see yet. And despite our lack of makeup, we know Hollywood Waste will be a great place for us because they feel that regardless of our clothing, good music is good music.”
Hollywood Waste’s Danielle Fidelity adds, “We are thrilled to announce the signing of LIONS LIONS to the Hollywood Waste roster! We feel the band fits perfectly with our philosophy and are anxious to take on the post-hardcore genre with them. The band has continued to grow since signing, both musically and as people, and we’re very excited to be the home of their debut full-length album.”
Audiences can check out new music from LIONS LIONS via their re-vamped Facebook page where their track “The Undertow” is now streaming. The track, which can be heard here , displays the band’s deft ability to negotiate the sonic tightrope between aggression and melody, with relentless guitar and drums seamlessly transitioning to anthemic vocal choruses. Produced by Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta [Bayside, Four Years Strong, Get Scared, Forever The Sickest Kids], LION LIONS’ full length album will be available on HOLLYWOOD WASTE RECORDS in June 2012.
Keeping true to their road warrior mentality, LIONS LIONS will be heading out with COMEBACK KID in May. A full list of tour dates can be seen below.
