We’re huge fans of Perthian shredders Tired Lion here at Howl. One of the most promising young rock bands the country has produced in recent years, Tired Lion spent their 2016 kicking the unholy crap out of it, wowing the country off the back of their second EP Figurine and a trio of singles that hit harder than a sledgehammer in I Don’t Think You Like Me, Not My Friends and Agoraphobia.
Their popularity only surged with spots at last year’s Splendour In The Grass and this year’s Falls Festival as well as opening for Violent Soho on their most recent tour. Not slowing down in the slightest, the quartet have announced they are about to embark this week on the process of recording their hugely anticipated debut album.
Without an official title or release date, there’s not much we know about it right now other than that Violent Soho frontman Luke Boerdam took enough of a shine to the band to volunteer his services as producer for the record. Given Soho’s dominance and their unquestionable Midas touch for the last five years, that’s a pairing every fan of Australian rock and roll should be getting irrationally excited for.
Taking to his social media, Boerdam compared the sound of the new record to The Breeders, Splendora and Basement and did his best to sell the shit out of the record to come. It was one of Rolling Stone’s ’50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2017′ and this announcement will only solidify that anticipation even further.
Stay tuned for an official release date so you can mark your calendars for this one.
