as Talll as a lion
As Tall As Lions, the New York prog-rock-jazz fusion group who has been steadily building a solid fan base since their inception in 2003, has been a touring machine, splitting a massive fall campaign supporting the likes of MUTEMATH and Minus The Bear.  Next up, the band will be embarking on a 20 date tour with Cage The Elephant, the bluesy southern rock band who radio has fallen in love with. To change the live show up a bit, the band has stripped down to its original 4-piece line up, down from 6. The band is looking to re-discover their roots and rock up the set to give long time fans a different look.

ATAL is confirmed for 2010's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA. They'll play Friday Night, April 16th alongside the likes of Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and many more. Alternative Press listed You Can't Take It With You #7 on their "The Best Albums Of '09" list and awarded lead singer Dan Nigro the runner up spot in their "Best Vocalist" category, gushing "his soaring falsetto and multi-octave range may evoke Jeff Buckley, but Nigro brings depth and soulfulness to a scene sorely lacking both".
