Solo the Lion

(Riot Act) It's official. Pedro the Lion's Dave Bazan is roaring back into action. The beloved songwriter has been buried in his home studio crafting a follow up to Achilles Heel. Now sans the PTL moniker, Bazan has redrafted a tour/internet only EP that he will sell on the road and via his site. The EP entitled FEWER MOVING PARTS finds Bazan going back to his musical roots. Performing and recording all the music by himself. The EP will have two different versions of five new Bazan songs. One version will be stripped down acoustic and another version will have full-instrumentation. Acclaimed graphic novel artist Zak Sally [Low] is creating the artwork for the EP.

The track listing is as follow:
Holy War (Making It, Faking It, Breaking It)
How I Remember (Don't Cry, I'm Not Gonna Hurt You)
Backwoods Nation (Here We Go Again)
Fewer Broken Pieces (Precious, Please Make Up Your Mind)
Cold Beer and Cigarettes (The Devil Is Beating His Wife)

In other Pedro news, Jade Tree {http://www.jadetree.com} is pleased to announce the digital release of PEDRO THE LION's Tour EP 2004. Tour EP 2004 will be available through digital outlets on May 9, 2006. Recorded live in-studio while the band toured in support of Achilles' Heel, the digital only Tour EP 2004 features an assortment of PEDRO THE LION originals, in addition to three diverse covers. The EP, originally self-released in July of 2004 by the band, culls from the extensive PEDRO THE LION back catalog, featuring new arrangements of 'Transcontinental,' 'I Am Always The One Who Calls,' and 'Slow and Steady Wins The Race,' juxtaposed against unique cover ballads from Randy Newman, Cat Power and Radiohead. The end result captures the fundamental nature of PEDRO THE LION; averting conjecture over solemn swells of emotion, coaxing the angst from everyday life, but ultimately, never losing sight of a distant hope. The curtain may have been called on PEDRO THE LION as a full band earlier this year, but these songs are an erstwhile reminder of the expansive allure that once was PEDRO THE LION.
