Bio

Indie-ish, emo-ish, pop-ish punk rock from P City.

Since 2013, Last Lions have warmed up stages for some of Australia's favourite rock acts including British India, The Bennies, Luca Brasi, Tired Lion, West Thebarton, Horror My Friend, Pist Idiots, local legends Sly Withers and Spacey Jane, and even a few international headliners like Hawthorne Heights, Moose Blood, and Gnarwolves to name a few. Their unique blend of modern Aussie indie punk with 90's style emo, earnest songwriting and energetic live shows have made them one of Perth's favourite up and coming punk acts.

In August 2017, they followed up numerous demos with their first official release "The Sky Was Black." The single reached #3 on the Triple J Unearthed Punk chart, and was voted in at 4th place in Live and Local 89.7fm's Top 20 WA Songs of 2017 listener poll. After making a few changes to the lineup, LL is back with a new single "Backyard Blues," and a west coast tour to welcome the tune into the world.

If you love catchy indie punk tunes about the ups and downs of growing up in Perth's southern suburbs, then you'd probably love Last Lions.

Backyard Blues West Coast Tour:
14.9 @ YMCA HQ (All Ages)
15.9 @ The Aardvark, Femantle
20.9 @ The Prince of Wales, Bunbury
21.9 @ The White Star Hotel, Albany
