Northern California Post Hardcore Band Roman Lions Release New Single + Music Video "Small Moments"; Track Recorded, Mixed, Mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Jeff Rosenstock)
"Roman Lions combine the emotional intensity of screamo, the build-and-break grandeur of post-rock, and the heaviness of hardcore."
"....It's a soaring, towering, post-rocky song with a roaring, anthemic chorus, but the real climax comes at the end, when the band brings in a chorus of harmonious gang vocals. Fans of Pianos Become the Teeth and Fire-era Thrice, take note."- Brooklynvegan
"...combines echoing leads and lush, reverb-soaked chord progressions, with throat-shredding screaming and pummeling drums."- San Jose Metro
"...massive, driving and powerful..."- Open Mind / Saturated Brain
San Jose CA's Roman Lions includes former members of A Perfect Kiss, I Am Empire, and Octaves.

Roman Lions are a post-hardcore band from San Jose, CA. Starting as the side project of Baltimore-raised brothers Justin and Matt Tracy, the brothers relocated to California and the band has expanded their sound and their lineup. Comprised of former members of A Perfect Kiss, I Am Empire, and Octaves, Roman Lions combine the emotional intensity of screamo, the build-and-break grandeur of post-rock, and the heaviness of hardcore. After recording their 2018 debut LP Absolutes with Jack Shirley, the band returned to the Atomic Garden in Oakland, CA in 2020 to record their next batch of songs being release throughout 2021.
