Lion of Judah w/ support from Praise Lubangu

March 23 @ 19:00 - 22:00


Lion of Judah is an indie-pop band from Brighton.

Experiencing crippling anxiety, musician Josh Bannister did what he’d never done before: he wrote songs to God. Together with Isaac Bannister, Dave Blight, Adam Nicholls, and Matthew Knight, Josh created a brand of music virtually unheard of in the UK. By putting on shows, touring across the country, and landing various festivals, Lion of Judah introduced themselves to the Christian genre and showed the genre what it could be.

After finding a partnership with Gospel Song Records, Lion of Judah began writing their debut full length. Each of their releases promises something new and unexpected, and their latest endeavor, entitled Closer, is no exception. The rock meets indie-pop record is an ode to intimacy; it throws traditional worship music out the window, opting instead for bright instrumentation with subtle nods to influences like Phil Collins and The 1975.

The project highlights a man desperate for communion with God, with unabashed and sincere lyrics that beckon deep reflection. Believing in the contagious nature of honesty, Lion of Judah utilizes transparency to stir it up in others. And their uniquely British tone—from the grittiness in their lyrics to the very style of Bannister’s vocals—illuminates a group determined to employ every facet of themselves in their art.

Support for this headline show will be provided by the amazing Praise Lubangu.
