Battle of the Bands 2011 Round 3 Winner In Like Lions
Hard Rock Cafe Boston, February 20, 2011
In 2010 under the direction of LA based producer, Jim Dineen (Saint Motel, Adam Jones, Whiskey Saints), In Like Lions worked for over 60 hours in just four days at 1867 Recording Studio in Chelsea, MA to record "At Night," their first EP. The album garnered praise within the Boston community and showcased their talent. After the October 2010 release of "At Night," In Like Lions was eager to begin their second studio effort.
The quartet returned to 1867 Recording Studio in early 2011. This time around, Dineen was joined by owner/producer of 1867, Chris McLaughlin (Mean Creek, Magic Magic, Township) to produce ILL's latest album. The band has spent over a year writing and experimenting with new sounds and ideas; working to once again separate themselves slightly from what they had previously done. They felt the combination of two producers from such different backgrounds was the only way to bring the group and it's music to places it had yet to go. The new LP demonstrates In Like Lion's growth and maturation.
The new album, which has yet to be named, will be released in the summer of 2011 by indie start-up Fort Point Recordings.
