The Learning Curve: Lions Lions

Lions Lions (
Vitals – From: Boston, MA/Label: Hollywood Waste/RIYL: Story of the Year, the Used, Senses Fail
Listen to: “The Undertow”

Boston’s Lions Lions might just be the band to wake up the post-hardcore/screamo genre, which has long become tired, by breaking the mold of endless amounts of identity-less copycat acts, which is why Hollywood Waste scooped them up when they did. Their swirling guitars, spastic, anthemic hooks and feverous riffing call to mind early Story of the Year and the Used, elements that can be heard throughout their song “the Undertow.” While you'll have to wait until this summer for a full length, at least now you have something to look forward to.
