Lion in The Mane is an American Rock band from New York City, NY. Formerly known as The Atlas, the band consists of Jon Masters (lead vocals, guitar, keys), Dmitry Libman (lead guitar and backing vocals), Zach Falkow (bass), Andrew Lynch (guitar, keys, synth and backing vocals) and Johnny Coryn (drums). The band's long time original bassist and founding member Henry D'Allacco left the band after getting married in the Fall of 2013.
The band, which formed in 2009, brilliantly executed the debut of their incredible wall of sound to a sizable passionate audience at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York on December 14, 2010. Lion in The Mane's musical style has been described as "building crescendos with dynamic conclusions which indicates the work of experienced musicians with a conscientious attention to songwriting detail" by the media, drawing comparisons to 30 Seconds to Mars, Angels and Airwaves and The Dangerous Summer.
The fervor of their incendiary live show has propelled them to that "my new favorite band" status that has managed to create one of a kind rock anthems with the track "The Way We're Wired".
When the band isn't relentlessly writing and recording each night at their NYC loft studio they can be found touring America and showcasing at CMJ, SXSW, Florida Music Festival and LAUNCH.
LITM's debut EP The Way We're Wired was released independently in August 2011. Plans to record a full-length are in the works with a release date in early 2014.
