Hailing from Connecticut and New York, Lions Write History play an aggressive blend of fast and mid-tempo hardcore, reminiscent of the energy and spirit of both 80’s and 90’s era bands. Comprised of former members of With Honor, Ambitions, Palehorse and Signs of Hope, the group strives to create a unique blend of heaviness and melody that will showcase their diverse influences.
According to singer Willis, the lyrical content revolves around turning a difficult upbringing into something positive. “I flocked to hardcore music at a young age, and I’ve always appreciated bands that had a message. Having grown up in a city stricken with poverty, homelessness, and violence, and having been poor and homeless myself for a period of time, I’ve seen the negative effects these types of things can have on a person’s life. This band is my way of showing people that there is a way out.”
