Lions of Dissent formed in 2015 and in that time, have gained praise from the likes of Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins, owner of Bella Union Records), Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) and Simone Marie Butler (Primal Scream), whilst also attracting various international and domestic press and radio interest.

It was quickly evident from day one that LOD wouldn’t be considered a traditional band, instead embracing a liberating, collective ethos – giving equal importance to every aspect, but still predominantly focusing on music.

Everything is self-produced and created from within, from the words, music, studio production, video production, art design and website, to screen printing t-shirts and curating photoshoots.

There are currently 10 members working across the various parts, including a creative director, songwriters, musicians, producers, filmmakers, web developers and graphic designers. Everything has equal importance.

Lead songwriter Tim Baker describes the group’s philosophy:

“It’s not only through absolute necessity, but an essential part of the ethos that we create everything ourselves – constructing and expanding our own universe piece by piece and inviting everybody to step inside as they pass us by.”

The group plan to release their debut 5 track EP in Autumn 2017.
