“Onslaught of crunchy riffs that are buoyed by enigmatic leader Sophie Hopes’ scratchy voice”Stereogum

“We’re all about the raw honesty and keeping the guitars loud” Tired Lion

Fronted by the brilliantly named Sophie Hopes, Tired Lion are a visceral life force. Delivering it straight up with a storming confidence, over boisterous guitars, the band will release their debut EP ‘Figurine’ out 24th June via Island/Dew Process.
