We Killed the Lion is a band that redefines the genre of hard rock music. Formed in Chicago by three local musicians. The band takes inspiration from 60’s psychedelia, 70’s rock, and 90’s grunge. If ZZ Top, The Stooges, and Blue Cheer were warped into a sonic orgy with Joan Jett, then We Killed The Lion would be the love child. Since forming in 2011, the band has independently released three albums: The self-titled “We Killed The Lion” in 2013, “One Way Ride” in 2015, and “Circle of Stars” in 2017. They have taken their high energy live performances all across the Midwest and have been very well received. The band continues to deliver a unique hard rock experience for their fans and are currently writing material for the next album.
