New York indie darlings As Tall As Lions thrilled fans in 2015 with the announcement of a handful of LA and NYC winter reunion shows – their first live performances since disbanding in 2010 . The band spent the better part of the ‘00s at the forefront of NYC’s indie music scene, and news of their return has ticket buyers on both coasts dying for a chance to see them in action again. In concert As Tall As Lions bring their soaring songs to life with passionate performances, conjuring up a truly massive tapestry of guitars that totally immerses ticket buyers. Frontman Daniel Nigro’s soulful voice has been compared to the likes of Chris Martin and Jeff Buckley, and like those impassioned crooners he’s a powerhouse performer known for his emotional delivery and vocal control. The band’s members have all remained active with various side projects during ATAS’s hiatus, so they’ll be ready to rock when they take the stage at their highly anticipated reunion shows.
As Tall As Lions formed in Long Island in 2001 and rose to critical acclaim the following year with their debut EP Blood and Aphorisms. Their epic live shows quickly made them a staple of New York’s burgeoning indie scene, and in 2003 they signed a major label development deal. Their debut album Lafcadio arrived in 2004, garnering more critical acclaim and drawing them out for extensive touring. They followed up in 2006 with a self-titled sophomore album that was an even bigger success, leading to their television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In 2009 critical favor gave way to chart success when their third album You Can’t Take It With You appeared on the Billboard 200. Despite the record’s popularity the band amicably split in 2010, but all was not lost – the band announced in 2015 that they’d be reuniting for several celebratory reunion shows
