Bio

Lions & Tigers Press Release: Lions & Tigers formed on the island of Martha’s Vineyard by singer/keyboardist Will Roan and guitarist Sam Decker. The intent of the band was to start playing live sets based around songs that represented both progressive and aggressive styles of music. During the summer of 2003 the two, along with brothers Willy and Sam Mason, began home recording each other’s various projects, including what would become L&T’s first demo. Soon Sam and New York bassist Max Heel joined the band. Mason, the most crucial sixteen year old to play the lower east side, can also be heard drumming on his brother Willy’s album ‘Where the Humans Eat’ (team-love/virgin). After leaving the island, Lions & Tigers began building up a fan base and a steady schedule of shows in New York and Brooklyn with acts such as Other Passengers, Au Revoir Simone, and close friends The Octagon. By August 2004 the group was being courted by (producer/entity/6th stroke?) Gordon Raphael to record a proper album. However, it was not the intention of the group to jump into a ‘real’ studio and record with a producer without first trying it DIY. So instead of renting a recording space, the band went back to MV and bought a ton of sound deadening board, which they used to “sound-dull” a family barn. Armed with a labtop, and many borrowed microphones, Lions & Tigers began recording their ‘Witch’ EP with good friend and electronic producer Morgan Z Whirledge. The record, which has yet to be picked up by a label, is a mix between 154-era Wire and Siousxie’s Kaleiodoscope, with an added touch of contemporary fashion/thievery.
