Smooth, cinematic, edgy, alternative, and poppy. LOST LIKE LIONS comes at you with a forceful energy that will make any indie rock fan swoon.
Lost Like Lions started in the spring of 2014 when Derrik (Vocals/Guitar) began writing songs right around when his old band broke up. That summer he went out to Los Angeles to record the debut EP The Way of The World, which featured guest vocals from AJ Perdomo (The Dangerous Summer), and Jon Lullo (Down To Earth Approach/The Seams). Shortly after the recording of The Way of The World, Derrik enlisted a lineup including Jamie Bigaj (Guitar) who had played with Derrik in his old band. Unfortunately, that run was short-lived and life got in the way. After only 3 shows the band stopped; the last show being in April of 2015. Fast forward to the summer of 2018, Derrik and Jamie ran into each other at a local music show in their hometown of Buffalo, NY. This is where the first discussions began regarding reforming Lost Like Lions, and led to Derrik writing songs again. Those tracks ultimately ended up being the NAVIGATE EP. Derrik recruited Jamie back, as well as adding Jim Kaczmarski on drums. In the summer of 2019, the band began work on what would become The Devil That You Know EP which was released in the spring of 2020, and would include the single “Enemies”. After following that release up with a string of fun local shows, the band started work on their newest batch of songs in the summer of 2021. Demoing 5 new tracks with producer Chris Flury in Brooklyn, New York, the band took those back to their hometown of Buffalo, New York to finish up what would ultimately become their newest EP Fear of Letting Go, which is due to release in the Spring of 2022.
The first single off of that offering, “Back To Life” is the perfect track to lead this new era of the band, starting off with the lead line “I saw the sunrise, and it brought me back to life”.
