Austin’s Lions Ready To Roar Again

 

More bounce to yer
‘70s ounce…

By Blurt Staff

 

With a high-profile tour with the reconstituted Toadies
about to kick off tonight, Texas
riff-masters Lions are set to scorch American from coast to coast over the next
month and a half. They’ll be showcasing material off last year’s acclaimed No Generation album, which will get
re-released by the Arclight label. The band’s a retro-active sensory assault
with heavy elements of ‘70s thug-punk and boogie metal as filtered through a
contemporary Lone
Star State
sensibility. Mushrooms optional, of course.

 

Just a list of some of the other groups they’ve been touring
with in the past should give you an idea of where they’re coming from: Blue Cheer, Burning Brides, and Local H,
and has shared the stage w/ heavy hitters such as Supersuckers, The Misfits, Valient Thorr, Early Man, DMBQ, Nebula,
Russian Circles and Daughters. They also nabbed the High Times Doobie Award this year for “Best Local Austin Band.”

 

In addition to the
tour, keep your ears peeled for the band’s songs featured in upcoming episodes
of Showtime series “Californication” as well as the new FX series “Sons of
Anarchy.”
