Who ’dat?: Josh Bergstrand (guitar/vocals), Shane Trost (bass), Rob Burleson (drums).
Myspace Categorization?: Punk rock
We’re not saying they are these guys, but they kind of sound like: 7 Seconds, Love Me Destroyer, The Giraffes
What’s their deal?: Westword said that Lion Sized’s new album Cough Up Your Teeth is a “classic punk-rock release for people who hate punk rock.” The band’s bass player moved away last year, and after a few gigs with Shane Trost of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club filling in, the three-piece has resolidified with Trost as a permanent member. Their music is loud and brutal, but at its heart it’s smart, honest, and has an underlying theme of being a supporter of the little guy.
