Ligion Debut Set
(http://wwww.iconmes.com/ligion_video/on_the_wayascap-extortion-removed) Rock & roll triumphs are rare. But by nicking choice elements from the genre’s checkered past and fusing it with raw power and sexual energy, Ligion’s invigorating Maple Jam/Bellum Records debut is just that. Spitting out a vital, dexterous eleven-song cycle that runs the gamut from infectious, rock radio gems to pensive, Zippo lighter-ready epics, Ligion has the potential to gather the masses. Crafted with the help of veteran rock producer Greg Ladanyi, this Nashville-based five piece fills a void as it resets expectations of what a modern rock album can be with 2007’s fiery entry External Affairs.
"In an age when your best two songs from a record can be downloaded for a buck, we wanted to keep some of that integrity with an album that you’d want to listen to from track one to track eleven," says guitarist June, who co-wrote the record with frontman and band namesake Ligion. And it’s that approach, evident on the pulsing, contagious and hopeful anthem "On The Way" and the reflective "Pins And Needles" alike, that helps the quintet – which also counts inventive guitarist Seth and its rhythm axis of drummer Johannes and bassist Levi – shimmer like stardust as it kicks and screams for your attention.
