DARK LION "Demo" 7" (RITES-26)

RELEASE DATE: Mid-June 2011

In the wake of the the newest middle east conflict in 2002, Dark Lion erupted in Pensacola, FL, a poor Navy town. Dark Lion's lyrics and live show were so full of contempt and violence, so full of the frantic energy that they felt at the time. With the war, siblings joining the army, people in jail all the time and the basic, deep hatred you feel when you are young as the backdrop, they wrote 6 songs of no-wave meets riot grrl punk, but I'm not sure they had any interest in genre. The demo went basically unheard, sold on cassette and CD-R on their one and only tour, despite being a completely uncompromising, original and dangerous punk recording. Few bands are as representative of a time in the way Dark Lion were, Born Against and Bikini Kill come to mind. Musically they are somewhere between Teenage Jesus and Nog Watt, but all their own. RIP Dark Lion, long live Dark Lion.

TRACK LISTING:
1. For Scotty
2. The Poor Get Prison aka Maintaining Class
3. My Super Human Power Would be Invincibility
4. I Flunked Obedience Class
5. Burn On Hell
6. I Feel Like Things Are Possible Now

After that shit gets really really real. Probably in order the rest of the year is looking like this:
Wasted Time-live cassette
Diet Cokeheads-Ocular 7"
Diet Cokeheads/The Men split 12"
Mauser 12"
Pollution 12"
+ 3 big projects I'm not ready to announce yet.

I would post tracks to a lot of stuff but Soundcloud is not cooperating.
