Pedro The Lion


Pedro_The_Lion-small3.jpg

Pedro the Lion was an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington, and, for over a decade, the main creative outlet of singer/songwriter David Bazan. The band combined a biting wit with first person narrative to cover both politics and faith.

Pedro the Lion was formed by David Bazan in 1994 and released its debut EP Whole in April 1997. Despite the band's many lineup changes, Bazan remained the primary artist and musician behind the group, singing and playing virtually every instrument on the band's first two full length albums, It's Hard to Find a Friend (1998) and Winners Never Quit (2000). Seldom's Casey Foubert joined Bazan for the band's 2002 effort, Control, playing drums and keyboards and co-writing "Penetration" and "Second Best". Achilles Heel followed in 2004 and featured T.W. Walsh, perhaps the only other band member -- besides Bazan -- to ever be considered an official member.All told, the band released four full-length albums as well as several EPs and various 7" singles.

Throughout his career, Bazan has been involved with such musical acts as Damien Jurado, Scientific, The Six Parts Seven, The Soft Drugs, Seldom, and Unwed Sailor. He and Nick Peterson, along with Frank Lenz of Starflyer 59, comprise the band Headphones.

Pedro the Lion formally announced its split in early January 2006. However, the band name will still be used for its annual Christmas singles. The split was amicable; Bazan and Walsh continue to be good friends. In fact, Bazan admitted that their friendship had even been strengthened by the breakup.

Bazan is currently touring in support of Fewer Moving Parts, his solo debut EP. A full length album is in the works for early 2007.Walsh returned to his career as a web application developer and is busy with his band, The Soft Drugs, and their debut release, The Soft Drugs in Moderation.
