We Be Lions was formed in February 2010, to create what many believe to be a completely new and original sound that is built to both move your feet and bang your head at the same time. Fans can feed off of the dynamic vocals that range anywhere from your favorite hip hop to new age grunge, along-side a funk/rock, guitar/bass duo. From there, the music aims to allow a wide variety of listeners the chance to identify with the lyrics and the melody. The different musical tastes and influences that each member brings to the table helps create a one of a kind sound.
At the start the band, there was Cody Fox on vocals, Kelvin Brooks on drums, Kyle Buglewicz on bass, and Sean Albracht on guitar. The new group started coming up with all new music. The first taste the public got of the new band came on a 3 song EP that was given out for free. Through the free cd and the word of mouth, quite a buzz was started about the band. That summer, Jeff Fenn was added to play backup guitar, keyboards and samples. The first show the band performed was on Halloween 2010, at the Parliament Pub in Omaha. After many months, the first album (self-titled and composed of 15 tracks) was released in May of 2011 at the Waiting Room Lounge in Omaha. The album received positive reviews and sold well. It is available for download online through iTunes, CDBaby.com, and Amazon.com.
We Be Lions has gone through a number of member changes. Original backup guitar, keyboard and samples player, Jeff, left and was replaced by Ben Linke on keyboards in 2011. In 2012, original lead guitarist Sean and original bassist Kyle left the band and were replaced with lead and rhythm guitarists Ricky Szablowski and Mike Novy. Bass was taken over by Jake Pirruccello. In 2013, Ben decided to leave the band and pursue other music endeavors.
After the new guitarists and bassist joined up, new music continued to be made along with learning the original music from the first album. The first music to be released, a 4 song EP (Stray Cats,) was in December 2012 and given out for free. Currently, the band is in the middle of writing in preparation for the all new album due to be released in August 2013.
