How else would you celebrate a debut album release other than an intimate show in a Newtown laundromat?

Well, thats exactly what Perth band Tired Lion have done. ‘Dumb Days’ was recorded over four weeks at the beginning of 2017 in Blackbird Studios in their hometown of Perth is an album about growing up, and it’s safe to say that through all that build up, the band – songwriter and frontwoman Hopes, Matt Tanner (lead guitar), Nick Vasey (bass) and Darnell (drums) – have done a whole lot of growing up.

Produced by Violent Soho frontman Luke Boerdam, along with the band’s long-time collaborator, WA legend and engineer extraordinaire, Dave Parkin, who combined to elevate the band’s capabilities, while also allowing them to discover new sides of themselves as musicians, songwriters and as a band.

Dumb Days’ is out now via Dew Process. Have a cheeky listen here. Tired Lion are also currently half way through their tour. Check out their remaining dates here.
