Pedro The Lion Comes To Canada

Published: 2004-05-18
Next month Pedro The Lion will sink its claws into the heart of Toronto. The indie band will be performing at the Horseshoe Tavern on June 24th, marking their only Canadian stop of their summer tour.

In addition to touring this summer, Pedro The Lion will see the release of their fifth album 'Achilles Heel' on May 25th. The new record has been called their 'most expansive album' and 'the album of their career'. For Soul Shine's opinion on the new disc, check out the reviews page.

Although Pedro The Lion is a full band, the real driving force behind the group is David Bazan. He's the man who came up with the name (it was the potential name of a children's book character) and he's been the sole constant member of the group.

After Pedro The Lion was conceived, the next logical step would be to put out a debut album, so that is just what Bazan did. The record was called 'It's Hard To Find A Friend' and was released way back in 1998. From then on, Pedro The Lion has put out albums on a regular basis, never taking too long a break in between.

Once again, Pedro The Lion's Canadian stop:
