Orange County independent record label No Sleep Records has announced today, they’ve signed Canadian emo punk-rock band Living With Lions who will be releasing a new album later this year.
“I’ve been a fan of Living With Lions since 2008. I remember being amazed by their show with Fireworks and The Wonder Years at Chain Reaction back then. Could not be more excited to welcome them to the family, and to share with the world what I think are their best songs to date.” - Chris Hansen (President of No Sleep Records)
“"We put so much into this record.. So many ups and downs during the process, but we've never been more excited to share a record with people before. We can't thank Chris and No Sleep enough for being as excited as we are and believing in this album. I know I speak on behalf of all the guys when I say, We're very proud to be a part of the No Sleep family." - Chase Brenneman (vocals)
Since 2009, Living With Lions have been making waves around the world with their trademark dynamics and anthem-esque melodies. After releasing their sophomore studio album, Holy Shit in 2011, Living With Lions toured extensively sharing the stage with bands such as: A Day to Remember, The Ghost Inside, Metallica, Blink 182, Paramore, New Found Glory, A Day to Remember, The Wonder Years, The Ghost Inside, Madball, Title Fight, Comeback Kid and many, many more.
After the departure of front-man Stu Ross in early 2012, many questioned what that would mean for the future of Living With Lions; Chase, Landon, Loren and Bill did not. "It was a big decision, but not a hard one.. There was so much more we wanted to accomplish as a band" says Chase Brenneman. With founding member, Chase Brenneman moving to lead vocals, and long time friend Craig Spelliscy joining on guitar, the Vancouver five piece picked up where they left off touring around the world.
2018 will prove to be a big year for Living With Lions. With their third full length album now complete and due out in the fall on No Sleep Records, the group looks to get back to what they truly enjoy the most, playing music together. Look out for Living With Lions on tour this fall and throughout 2019. Island will be available worldwide September 2018.
