The Lions are a large, Los Angeles-based reggae collective comprised of musicians from various other bands, with Dan Ubick on guitar and numerous singers sharing vocal duties, including Malik Moore and Black Shakespeare (cousin of Robbie Shakespeare, so there’s some lineage for you). The outfit has been releasing records since 2007, including 2008’s Jungle Struttin, and have received generally favorable reviews from fans and critics. Their newest release, This Generation, finds the band staying true to their roots-reggae origins, but eschewing dub this time while also throwing in a curveball or two for the kids (Van Halen covers, anyone?).
