Vancouver punks Living With Lions (www.myspace.com/livingwithlions) are heading out on a U.S. tour with Flint, MI’s The Swellers starting June 26 in Portland, OR.
The band’s new Adeline Records release Make Your Mark hits stores July 21.
Graduates (or survivors) of their infamous Dude Manor party headquarters in Vancouver, a place with a reputation for decadent, ruckus parties that led to numerous noise complaints to police by hapless neighbors, the band is best known for cranking out passionate, anthem-friendly punk rock fueled by grit and ridiculously catchy melodies.
Influenced by like-minded acts such as Lifetime, Hot Water Music, and A Wilhelm Scream to name a few, Living With Lions delivers unrelenting music while wholeheartedly embracing the raucous attitude and communal spirit of punk rock. Produced and mixed by Jesse Smith and Jason Bone (Cauterize, Sydney, Organ Thieves), the band has built a solid foundation throughout Canada and are now primed to make their mark on the rest of the continent.
Some fun facts about Living With Lions...the band had one last, wall-breaking party at Dude Manor that saw the end of a brief era; guitarist Chase Brenneman thought he was getting a call from creditors tracking him down when Adeline Records called offering them a deal…
