On Friday, Parisian power-trio Iron Lizards released their debut album “Hungry for Action”. High octane garage rock with no fuss. Described as “seriously energetic and noisy stuff that would make most metal bands blush” by UKs Vive Le Rock.
Iron Lizards are a power-trio from Paris, France. The band was formed in 2015 by Elio with their goals already set; honoring the old gods of Detroit (MC5, The Stooges) whilst paying their homage to the 90’s action rock scene (The Hellacopters, Zeke, New Bomb Turks). This was then mixed with influences taken from everything from 60’s garage punk to 80’s punk hardcore (Zero Boys, Minor Threat, Gang Green) and psychobilly (The Cramps).
Their first EP was released in 2016 by German JanML Records, following this with playing as the opening act for bands such as Get Dead, Zeke, Mammoth Mammoth, Sonic Wolves, The Hip Priests and Christmas. In 2021 the band signed with Swedish The Sign Records to release their debut album: Hungry for Action.
This debut full length album “Hungry for Action” features twelve furious cuts of high energy garage rock straight from the alternative 90s. Raw production and hefty shouts for vocals. Punchy drums and fuzz-fueled guitars. Gritty and gutsy, “Hungry for Action” is dirty rock n roll, boiled down into its true essence.
No monkeys given. No trends. 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 90´s. 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 with the loud and unfiltered joy of unsophisticated music.
The guitars, bass and vocals on “Hungry for Action” was recorded at Studio Baleine. Drums recorded at Tylo Studio. The album was mixed and mastered by Marlon Wolterink at White Noise Studios. Album artwork by Bangalore Studios.
“Hungry for Action” is released on The Sign Records September 17. The album is released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
