PEDRO THE LION are back and armed with a ten-song arsenal that heralds another beautiful progression within the band’s sound and lyrical vision. A deepening complexity to their songwriting mirrors the complexity of messages and lyrical content. Anchored by trademark rolling, indelible hooks and Dave Bazan’s vocals, which swing from sweet indictments to mournful mocking, PEDRO THE LION digs deep to examine the vast disparity between the “haves” and the “have-nots”.
