Biography

LIONSEX are a hard rocking outfit from Milton Keynes, UK.

Blending the sound of classics such as Motley Crue, Marilyn Manson, Guns N Roses and Pearl Jam with a vibrant modern edge, LIONSEX have all you could ever want in your favourite band.

We have been in existence since late 2007 and have recently released our debut album, GET IT, recorded with the team who have worked on Bullet For My Valentine's first three albums (as well as Trivium and up and coming UK rap-metallers Idiom) and are due to appear in the next issue of CLASSIC ROCK magazine in the UK. The album was released on 8th December 2009 on our own label, Roar Power Records.

The band have played extensively around the UK in the past two years building up support and playing with acts like Spit Like This, Towers of London, Adam Bomb, Hollywood Tease and Japanese Voyeurs.

"GET IT" was produced and engineered by Matthew Bond, who has not only worked with Bullet on their 3 albums to date, is also songwriter and guitarist in up and coming Welsh metallers The Dirty Youth, and was mixed at Nott In Pill Studios in Newport by Jeff Rose and Martin Ford, both of whom have been part of Brit metal legends Dub War and Skindred. Jeff and Martin have worked not only with Bullet For My Valentine and Skindred but also mixed Trivium's last album "Shogun". Jeff and Martin (commonly known as "Ginge") gave the LIONSEX album their much sought after talents and really helped to bring their sound to life.

During the past year LIONSEX have played all over the UK at venues such as THE LONDON BORDERLINE, THE PITZ (MILTON KEYNES), THE CRAUFORD ARMS (MK), THE GOLDEN CROSS (COVENTRY), THE ROADHOUSE (MANCHESTER) and supported bands such as TOWERS OF LONDON and SPIT LIKE THIS.

We also played as second headliner at the AMEX Festival in Spain last June.
