Born Lion formed in Sydney from remnants of The Watt Riot in early 2012. Armed with ex-member of Town Hall Steps & Bayonets for Legs, the band has come together to create a dangerous noise that commands attention. The sound is a mixture of fucked up chords, angular rhythms, hard beats, and raw vocal stabs.
In May 2012, Born Lion teamed up with notorious Sydney Producer, Dave Hammer (Gay Paris, Chick Who Love Guns, Die!Die!Die!, The Snowdroppers) to create one of the most devastating EP's to come out of Sydney in 2012.
Born Lion’s debut EP is scheduled for release in December 2012. The first single, ‘Livin' Tough’ is an addictive and menacing track that takes the piss out of what it is to be ‘tough’. To celebrate this release, Born Lion are hitting the road through June/July.
