Since their humble beginnings, when they first began uploading early songs inspired by Sonic Youth, Pixies and Smashing Pumpkins online, Tired Lion has already achieved a list of accomplishments most bands would be utterly envious of.
Two successful EPs, an Unearthed J Award, huge singles ‘Not My Friends’ and ‘Agoraphobia,’ multiple WA Music Awards, tour after tour after tour, and spots on some of the biggest music festivals on the planet, including Splendour In The Grass, Primavera, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and the Great Escape. And they’ve done it all before they’ve released an album.
There’s a lot to be said for taking your time. Preparation is key after all. Tired Lion have been gradually, steadily working towards their debut record, resisting the pressure of hype to rush into it. That patience has paid off and now the band is poised to release the LP they’ve always dreamed of making – Dumb Days .
