Ahead of the Lions, the debut from Living Things is an all out rock and roll assault. Bassist Eve, drummer Bosh and singer/guitarist Lillian, three brothers from the Midwest, write an open letter to Dubya demanding answers, freedom and a change. Lillian wails like the love child of Social Distortion's Mike Ness and D Generation's Jesse Malin over sonic bombasts of chronic guitar fury. Ahead of the Lions is a stabbing of ferocity reminiscent of one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Nirvana. But this isn't Kurt, Dave and Krist's Nirvana, this is Nirvana version 2.0. A twenty-first century Nirvana, hell-bent on recreating and revolutionizing a sound that crushes the competition. Living Things are warriors set to pulverize and they will come out on top. F*%$ yeah!
