Born Lion formed in Sydney in mid 2012. Four dudes came together with a singular goal in mind; to create some righteous punk rock. The sound that is a mixture of fucked up chords, angular rhythms. hard beats and double shouty vocals. The band released their debut self-titled EP independently in March 2013. The EP was recorded with notorious Sydney producer, Dave Hammer (The Snowdroppers, Die!Die!Die!) and is already proving to be one of the most hard-hitting releases of the year. Two singles from this release, Livin’ Tough and Adolescent Oaths, have already got heads turning. Both singles were picked up by Triple J as well as local radio stations such as Sydney’s FBI, Melbourne’s Triple R, and Brisbane’s 4ZZZ. In February 2013 Born Lion were named Triple J Unearthed feature artists. Immediately after, they performed at the Soundwave festival in Sydney. Playing the main stage, they opened for the likes of Metallica, Tomahawk and The Offspring. In less than a year Born Lion have made some serious noise across the Aussie live music scene. With three successful east-coast tours under their belt, plus interstate tours with Strangers and Gay Paris, there seems to be no stopping these guys. The band have just released a brand new single “D for Danger” and have a relentless touring schedule for the rest of 2013, including a performance at the 2013 Bigsound music conference. Owing to the ferocity of their live show, Born Lion are flooring audiences across the country.
