Fight The Lion is a band from the Virginia area who are currently gearing up to play Jiffy Lube Live for the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival. Other bands on the bill are Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Seven Sour and many more. In promotion for them playing the festival on August 31st I was able to ask lead vocalist Jake Mimikos a few questions. The bands most recent album When The Mighty Fall is available on iTunes and other digital retailers.
How did the band get its name?
What come first, music or lyrics?
Does everyone contribute to writing or is a solo type thing?
You've shared the stage with acts such as Poison and Def Leppard, who are your musical influences?
What do you imagine your listeners doing when hearing your album, When The Mighty Fall?
You're playing Jiffy Lube Live for the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival, are you playing all songs off of your most recent album or planning on trying out some new material?
If you weren't in Fight The Lion what do you think you'd be doing for a profession?
Ron would be a flight mechanic. (his old job)
Jason would be institutionalized.
And I would be fighting lions for Sparta.
What's next for the band this coming fall?
