I have one word to explain my initial reaction to this album: "Wow."
Lions Lions have been a staple in the local scene for years now, and their upcoming album Monument is another step forward following their 2015 album Changing the Definition.
The album opens with 'Circles,' a beautiful riff which is immediately followed by vocals from Joshua Herzer which mirror those of Pierce the Veil frontman Vic Fuentes. Much like PTV's latest album Misadventures, Lions Lions do a great job of creating a memorable sound that makes you want to get up and move around.
'The Bridge,' track seven on the album, is a rock ballad of sorts, and one of my favorite songs. The melodic guitar mixed with excellent drumming from Derek make this one of the more memorable tracks on the album.
The album just like it started, ends with a powerful track. The guitar work, vocals, and drumming make 'Eleven Months' another can't miss track from this album.
Lions Lions has a weekend run planned at the end of April which will continue their contribution to the local scene. Bands included in some of the shows are Actor-Observer, Under Fire, Too Late The Hero, Fathom Farewell and a laundry list of others. We hope to see you at one of them!
