Living With Lions
A decent apartment is not an easy thing to find when moving to Vancouver, so when the soon to be members of Living with Lions moved in to their first Vancouver house, they never expected it would be so pivotal in the shaping of their next year. Having similar interests in music, beverages and fun, the boys and their house soon became known for their ruckus get-togethers and parties. A popular spot for any east Vancouver youth to let loose and have a good time, a title was soon given to the house so many had become familiar with: Dude Manor. Before long, the house-mates turned the basement into a jam space and studio, and the friends quickly found themselves with a solid line-up of songs and deemed themselves Living with Lions.
Leaving the basement behind for the road, August found the band touring through the Canadian Midwest with Smallman recording artists Daggermouth. On their return, the band jumped in to the studio and recorded 7 songs to be featured on their fittingly titled debut E.P, Dude Manor. After winning over a solid local fan-base, the Lions released Dude Manor and enjoyed two successful tours down the American West Coast.
As both the band and the neighbour's noise complaints became more serious, a move had to be made to a proper jam space. After the most epic of parties, Living with Lions moved out of Dude Manor leaving their first chapter behind.
The Moms are a dynamic power trio from New Jersey who pride themselves on a hook-laden sound and an energetic live set. With what started as sporadic shows in New Brunswick basements, The Moms have now committed to a nation-wide touring schedule. Joey Nester (Guitar/vocals) comments, "We play shows coast to coast in bars and basements, yelling satirical lyrics to anybody willing to listen."
The Moms recorded their first four song EP, "Viva!" in December of 2011 at Silent Owl Studios with John Collura of The Ataris. The record was later released on Panic State Records on 7" Vinyl. Jon Stolpe(Bass/Vocals) states, "The tracks are a couple of the original tunes we wrote in Joeys Bedroom during the 2011 year. We were all dying to groove but in a nasty way and Viva! is the product of it."
The much anticipated full length record "Keep Buying American" can be expected in October of 2013 through Paper + Plastick with a full national tour to support it. Donny Saraceno (Drums) on the record, "The record is our platform to help you experience what The Moms are all about. There is nothing else like it, but it IS an American Rock and Roll album."
