THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “No fucks given. No trends followed. Iron Lizards blast their guitars and make music alive once again. Raw riffs, and with no unnecessary shit in their songs. Straight on, no fuzz, and loud screaming guitars. Iron Lizards make you feel the wild and dangerous side of rock ’n’ roll. They make you remember the hazy days of the alternative ’90s. Combining the roughest part of music history, Iron Lizards are a true statement in this time and age. Be ready to testify, Iron Lizards will make your ear puke from the loud and unfiltered joy of unsophisticated music.

Iron Lizards are a power trio from Paris, France. They were formed in 2015 by Elio with their goals already set: Honouring the old gods of Detroit (MC5, The Stooges) whilst paying their homage to the ’90s action rock scene (The Hellacopters, Zeke, New Bomb Turks). This was then mixed with influences taken from everything from ’60s garage punk to ’80s punk hardcore (Zero Boys, Minor Threat, Gang Green) and psychobilly (The Cramps). Their first EP was released in 2016, following by opening stints for bands such as Get Dead, Zeke, Mammoth Mammoth, Sonic Wolves, The Hip Priests, and Christmas. Hungry for Action is their debut album.”
