With Lions: To Be
From their EP Touch The Sound released November 1st.
Christian Celaya (Benzos) and Woody Ranere (Lake Trout) make up the group known as WITH LIONS and November 1st marked the kick-off of an ambitious four-EPs-a-year cycle with the release of Touch the Sound.
Upon the EP’s completion, Christian and Woody decided to take these songs to the stage in a different way. Rather than touring endlessly in support of each release, they’re concentrating on making their live performances more of a limited, special engagement
The first performance takes place Friday, November 11 at New York’s Mercury Lounge, where WITH LIONS will be backed by a full band of their cohorts from the past, playing all of Touch the Sound as well as new tunes from the upcoming EP releases. While Touch the Sound’s live setup will include members of Benzos and Lake Trout in a more traditional rock band alignment, the forthcoming releases will include everything from string quartets and horn sections to an army of synthesizers.
