DE | vintage rock
The Shadow Lizzards describe their style as "vintage rock" - a term that is as simple as it is appropriate for the 60s and 70s-influenced sound, which is made up of elements such as classic hard or blues rock and psychedelic sounds, but still contemporary and anything but old-fashioned.
Their 2018 self-titled debut is still a lot of fun to this day. After all, it delivers plenty of wonderfully boisterous numbers that sound like they were written for the stage. They captivate with their powerful, rough charm, which doesn't try to hide their closeness to the role models from the past, but also contemporary stars of the blues and retro rock scene, such as the Brits The Brew.
With SOMEONE'S HEARTACHE, the trio consisting of Jochen Leistner, Kris Karla and Oliver Pfeiffer not only takes huge steps forward artistically and tonally, but also in terms of stylistic range. The trio, founded by Leistner in 2016, now presents eight pieces that can stand face to face with those of international genre greats.
Of course, variety is also very important on stage at The Shadow Lizzards. After meanwhile more than 100 live shows - on their own account in clubs, at festivals as well as supporting well-known acts such as Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey, the heavy psychers Elder, the neo-Krautrockers Wucan or the Siena Root offshoot Heavy Feather - the three gentlemen have also developed great self-confidence in the live situation.
