Vancouver, B.C., Canada’s Living With Lions recently joined the roster of the venerable Adeline Records, who will re-release the band’s 2007 debut EP, as well as it’s 2008 full-length.
Make Your Mark will be reissued on 12″ vinyl, CD and digitally later this summer (July 21st). Both albums were originally released in Canada by Black Box Recordings.
Living With Lions cranks out passionate, anthemic hardcore fueled by grit, determination and ridiculously catchy melodies by the barrelful. Giving nods to their influences â€“ Lifetime, Hot Water Music, A Wilhelm Scream to name a few – the five piece still manage to establish a foundation for their own unique take on the genre while embracing the raucous attitude and communal spirit of punk rock.
You can listen to streaming songs from both Dude Manor and Make Your Mark on the band’s Myspace page. There’s also a sweet video for the latest single, “A Bottle Of Charades.”
In other news, Living With Lions will be playing a week’s worth of shows on the West Coast beginning on Sunday, including an appearance at Bamboozle Left. In May, the band will be playing a string of shows with Polar Bear Club.
