Party Central in Vancouver these past few years has been without a doubt Dude Manor, home to brash upstarts Living With Lions. Like the out-of-control Sunset Strip squalors of Mötley Crüe, and Guns N’ Roses before them, where decadence and bravado ruled the roost, Dude Manor was known for ruckus parties and quickly became a popular hotspot for any east Vancouver youth seeking mayhem, before a final, wall-destroying party did it in for good. It also gave birth to Living With Lions’ stellar debut EP. Now U.S. fans can get their hands on the band’s follow-up effort, Make Your Mark on Adeline Records.
Known for cranking out passionate, anthem-friendly punk rock fueled by grit, determination and ridiculously catchy melodies, the band calls like-minded acts such as Lifetime, Hot Water Music, and A Wilhelm Scream, to name a few, influences.
A five piece band, Living With Lions (singer Matt Postal; guitarists Chase Brenneman and Landon Matz; bassist Shayne Lundberg; drummer Loren Legare) manages to establish a foundation for its unique take on the genre while wholeheartedly embracing the raucous attitude and communal spirit of punk rock.
Here’s what press has said of Living With Lions…

Although the days (and nights) of jamming in the Dude Manor basement are long gone, as are the frequent neighbor noise complaints to local authorities, Living With Lions is armed and ready to take their ferocious sonic assault to fans beyond the Great White North border. Links
