Born Lion – Celebrate The Lie – Album Out Now


Following on from their critically adored 2015 debut album ‘Final Words’Born Lion return with their highly anticipated sophomore full-length ‘Celebrate the Lie’ and new single ‘Slowly Sinking’ – produced by Jimmy Balderstone (Luca Brasi, High Tension, Grenadiers) and mixed by Ryan Hazell (The Drones, Green Buzzard).

‘Celebrate the Lie’ combines angsty punk-rock, frenetic hardcore and unapologetic monstrous pop-hooks, to deliver on what is quite simply a straight up, raucous, no bull-shit, razor-sharp rock n’ roll record.

Writing for the album began in winter 2016 in a tiny, frosty rehearsal space in Southern Sydney. Over six-months the quartet narrowed down eleven tracks, before heading to Adelaide to record the final cuts over two-weeks.

Lead single ‘Evil K’ was widely embraced by the likes of Spotify, Rolling Stone Australia, Music Feeds, The Music, Hysteria Magazine, radio stations FBi, 4ZZZ, 3RRR and triple j, who added the track to spot rotation. To coincide with the release of ‘Evil K’, the band set out on an East Coast tour, which saw them play to wild capacity crowds.

Since being crowned winners of triple j Unearthed’s 2013 Soundwave competition, Born Lion have continually put out critically praised music, with three of their singles ‘D for Danger’, ‘Good Times Jimmy’ and ‘Good Dogs Play Dead’ all being added to rotation on triple j.

Their 2015 debut album ‘Final Words’ was nominated for an ARIA for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Award.

In the live arena, the band have traversed the countryside multiple times on their own headline tours and supporting the likes of The Hives, The Bronx, Royal Blood, Mamozets and Karnivool.

To celebrate the release of ‘Celebrate the Lie’, the quartet will hit the road teaming up with Captives, performing in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney.

Hysteria Magazine (AUS)

Paddy McHugh – Down To Sydney Video and January Tour Dates.

Paddy McHugh had a big year in 2017.

Paddy is kicking off 2018 at a running pace with a brand-new video clip and a tour celebrating his new single – Down To Sydney.

Paddy McHugh on the story behind the song:

Suicide rates in Australia are high, too high. Especially for young men in rural areas. ‘Down to Sydney’ is a story that has no doubt played out many times in every small town across the country. In the song however, the protagonist finds another way out…. I guess I want people to realise that there are alternatives and there is hope even in the most unlikely places.”

McHugh comes from the Paul Kelly school of song writing in that simplicity is key and everyday life makes the best stories.

I know there are many reasons why people listen to and enjoy music… but for me, the style of music that I wanted to make, honesty was paramount,” he explains. “It had to be about something that I knew about, or cared about.”

Raised in Tamworth, before moving to Sydney and now finally calling Brisbane home, Paddy McHugh is heading back down to Sydney and Tamworth this January on the appropriately titled single tour which will also see him perform at the prestigious Illawarra Folk Festival.
