LIONS in Billboard Magazine / SXSW / Upcoming Tour Dates / NEW RECORD!
How goes the world? We never made it to LA, well, not yet. The record wasn't finished by the time we were suppose to leave (working hard) so we postponed the recording until after SXSW. We have tons of new material and songs that we'll be trying out next month in prep for making the monster 3rd record. We want it to be just right. It's heavy, aggressive, and quite massive as a whole. We begin pre-production with Matt Hyde very very soon. More to come. In other news, Billboard Magazine will be running a feature on us in the upcoming weeks. When it comes out, we'll post it up and let you know the issue and date. Oh yeah. Tour dates are spreading during and after SXSW. Check the show listing for complete SXSW info and show locations. NEW RECORD soon.. Looks like we're going to start recording the beast in May 2009.

Early 2009 - New Record / LA / SXSW
New Years Eve 2008 w/ Toadies up in Ft. Worth was by far one of the best we've had in years. Blowing champagne on the crowd was one of the highlights.. ah, the show too.. And on to 2009.. Scott Lucas from Local H is coming down in mid January to write a few songs with us and then off to LA to record the new record with Matt Hyde in late Jan thru early March.. We're busting to get this one out.. Tons of songs .. All different .. some massive, some small.. all good. We get back to Austin right before SXSW hits.. Some big shows this year for us during the festival.. Stay close on those.. Jan 24th, we'll be at Emos playing our last Texas show till SXSW.. Playing new songs.. Get out, get up.. LIONS
Rest of 2008 and into 2009
We will be playing a few shows in the remaining days of 2008. Please keep an eye on the schedule. We have most of the shows up with the potential for at least one more show to be added in December. January might have a few shows as well in order to preview new songs which will be on the new record. February will be off so we can temporarily locate to LA in order to record with Matt Hyde (Porno for Pyros, Monster Magnet, Slayer). Should be huge times. Then SXSW in March..... ROCK.

June 12, 2008: Hey everyone! So, since the Local H tour ended a few weeks ago, we've been working on the new studio in Austin, TX. 100 degree weather and no AC as of yet, has made it almost fuckin' impossible, but it's starting to come around and actually look good. After the Toadies tour / Summerfest (Milwaukee) gig in July, we'll be heading back home for a few months to work on demos for the upcoming record. Two months of no touring / no shows, a strict regiment of new material, and the death heat of Texas. Toadies tour starts next week. Tickets are available online. Some shows have already sold out. Check the show page. We'll be at Summerfest this year on July 5 at 6:30pm. Vinyl of No Generation is now available for online purchase at our Myspace page or through Arclight Records homepage. Rocknroll
