Insisto Lemmini

the_treading_lemmings_blogHistorically, Lemmings have been portrayed in literature and legend as cute, cuddly rodents who like to gather in large groups at the edge of a mighty precipice, only to hurl themselves to their watery deaths. Not an overly flattering picture, I’m afraid, but an excellent metaphor for bands duped by the “majors” into patterning themselves after the “latest and greatest” group being touted by corporate radio (aka the devil). Thankfully, such is not the case with The Treading Lemmings an alt-rock/brit-pop band that hails from Washington, DC. These Lemmings are making their own way in the music world and are doing so with a sound that is creative, energetic and, best of all, pleasantly dissimilar to the mindless droves trying to become the next big emo-punk band.

Drummer Joe Szad and bassist Mr. Mark anchor the band’s compositions with a rhythm section that is strong like bull while Andrew Stainer and Andy Hunt add a world of light and colour to the mix with their exceptional guitar work. Lead singer Chris Quinn’s lyrics are insightful and his voice is as strong and commanding as his stage presence. Together they create a unified sound that resonates with remarkable originality. Froglix is thrilled to get a sneak peak at (3) tracks off their upcoming full-length release Cliff Notes and even more amped to be able to include them as part of our global broadcast. Not only is it ok to follow these Lemmings, it’s highly recommended!
