We Killed the Lion is a power trio that continually redefines the genre of hard rock music. Formed by three local Chicago musicians who share the vision to produce raw, unapologetic, yet infectious Rock & Roll. 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 soon to be three albums: The self-titled “We Killed The Lion” (CD) in 2013, the six song EP “One Way Ride” (CD/Vinyl) in 2015, and the upcoming eight song release “Circle of Stars” (CD/Vinyl), which is scheduled for Spring of 2017. While the band takes pride in their studio achievements, We Killed The Lion is truly meant to be experienced at a live show. They have taken their high energy live performances all across the Midwest and have been very well received. The band continues to build momentum and plans to put thousands of more miles under their heels to deliver a very original and unique, hard rock experience for their fans.
