Lizard Skynard / Bio

As was the transformation that Erik Sprague made to become The Lizardman, so was his transformation into the lead vocalist of LIZARD SKYNARD. With journeymen musicians like Guitarist/Songwriter Mossy Vaughn (The Heavils), Bassist Russell Gillespie (Mothertrucker), Drummer Johnny Baker (Waco Jesus) and Mossy's brother, Eric Vaughn on Keyboards at his side, Sprague sets the heavy music scene on fire.

Vocalist, Comedian, Author and Reknowned Freak, Erik Sprague might be widely known for his green tattooed scales, his split tongue, sharply filed teeth, or the teflon ridges implanted sub-dermally above his eyes, but he is preparing to be equally reknowned for his Rollins-like vocal stylings. "Being in a band is completely new way for me to interact with an audience, there is a much different dynamic with the crowd and I love to experiment with that." 

Setting him on the right path was a man exceptionally talented in his own right, Mossy Vaughn started his career when he was about 15 playing in bands locally our old band played CBGB'S 2 times and then he moved to Vancouver B.C. in 1993 and joined Caustic Thought a band with Byron Stroud(Fear Factory) but his band The Heavils (Metalblade) got the most success getting alot of press from Rolling Stone Guitar World etc. and touring just about everywhere. He also worked for the Jagermeister Music Tour and met Lizardman around 2003 then eventually living and driving the Jagerbus around the country for almost 4 years.

Johnny Baker has played in Waco Jesus for 9 years traveling the world he blends death grind and good old rock and roll drumming styles.Russell Gillespie originally hails from Vancouver B.C. and played in (Mothertrucker) Eric Vaughn rounds out the band with keyboards..

 The new self-titled album was recorded at Electrical Audio studios with Greg Norman ( Russian Circles,Pelican,Neurosis,Shellac) and mastered at Chicago Mastering with Jason Ward ( Big Black,Jesus Lizard,Deerhunter).
