Four-piece nu metal/energy rock band LIONFIGHT have released their debut EP, available on iTunes and several other digital retailers now. The band will follow up the release with a supporting slot on the “We Are Savages Tour,” headlined by BREATHE CAROLINA, starting on February 5th (tomorrow) in Tucson, AZ.
Lionfight was formed in January of 2013 by singer Nick Astacio, guitarist Akash Hans, and bassist Bryan Patrick Cole – later adding Pete Dornowski on drums. The band immediately began the writing process and shortly after, started playing shows around the greater Chicago area. With a dark and heavy feel that can be attributed to such influences as Tool, Meshuggah, Slipknot, and letlive., lionfight has made each of their songs their own.
The new EP was produced by Marc McClusky (Chiodos, letlive, Hit the Lights), Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, I See Stars, The Devil Wears Prada), and Dan Whittemore in Chicago over 6 months. Fans can expect a new music video for the track “Uncle Ben” in early February.
