National magazine hails Wake the Lion



Published: Thu, May 21, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m.

Youngstown-based rock band Wake the Lion has caught the ear of a national music magazine. The band is in the July issue of Alternative Press as part of the magazine’s monthly Best Unsigned Bands feature. The issue hits newsstands June 2.

Wake the Lion consists of Kyle Hoffman, vocals, the newest member; Alan Williams, drums (who is also in Realtime Digimob); Kevin Esposito, guitar; Justin Caroline, bass; and Ben Johnston, guitar.

The band is recording a two-song demo that it will shop around to record labels. Its hardcore-emo-pop style is influenced by such acts as Taking Back Sunday and Everytime I Die. The band can be seen June 12 at Unity House in Youngstown and June 13 at the Rock the Block Festival in Youngstown.

Finally. Its nice to see some of the best talent in Youngstown getting national recognition. We need to get behind acts like this that have the potential to help the city.
