Hot off the ARIA red carpet, Sydney’s Born Lion continue to flex their punk rock muscle with the release of their tough-as-f*ck new video for Rest In Pieces.
Shot in Sydney’s inner-west by the team at Paste Studios, the video features Jesse Coulter from Adelaide band Grenadiers (who provided guest vocals for the track in the studio) as well as cameos from mates in bands like Captives and The Stiffys.

Rest In Pieces is taken from the Born Lion’s acclaimed debut LP Final Words, which was released in July this year, and subsequently nominated for an ARIA in the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal category. The album is also collecting nods in various year-end lists such as Fasterlouder’s 15 Best Heavy Albums of 2015.
Hometown fans can help the band celebrate the end of a massive year by heading along to Born Lion’s Xmas extravaganza this Sat Dec 19th at Dicey Riley’s Hotel in Wollongong.
“…unpretentious, unabashed and really rather refreshing.” – Rolling Stone (3.5/5)
“…custom built to get a live crowd on side and chanting.” – The Music (4/5 – AOTW)

ABC Music imprint record label FOUR | FOUR is very proud to announce today a new signing to their roster, Sydney hardcore punk band – Born Lion.
FOUR | FOUR has a roster that now boasts Tim Rogers, The Snowdroppers, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, and Little Bastard, amongst others.
In a short time Born Lion have made some serious noise across the Aussie live music scene supporting such bands as The Bronx, The Hives and Karnivool, and playing at Soundwave festival.
The sound is a mixture of fucked up chords, angular rhythms. hard beats and double shouty vocals.
The band are currently in the studio recording their debut album with Sydney producer, Dave Hammer (The Snowdroppers, Die!Die!Die!, Thundamentals). Due for release in July 2013.
“We are super excited to sign with Four Four Records. It’s an amazing label that has had belief in this band from the beginning.” says Born Lion’s John Bowker. “To be on the same label as Tim Rogers, The Snowdroppers and Little Bastard is an honor. We’re strapped in and ready for all the rockin’ good times ahead.”
“Hard to fault. Both tracks by these guys are killer.” – Richard Kingsmill (triple j unearthed review)
Debut album out July 2015.
