Biography

Long Island, New York, United States (2002 – 2010)

After coming off the road in mid-2005, following months of touring in support of their Triple Crown debut, Lafcadio, from Long Island, New York, United States the band As Tall As Lions – vocalist/guitarist Daniel Nigro, guitarist Saen Fitzgerald, bassist Julio Tavarez and drummer Cliff Sarcona – spent more than half a year channeling their energies into crafting an album that would not only realize the lofty ambitions of these four young men but define them as a band, once and for all. The resulting self-titled album - released August 8, 2006 on Triple Crown/East West - provides dramatic evidence that they met this self-imposed challenge, and then some.

As Tall As Lions’ journey toward maturation began in casual fashion, the original version of the band forming around Fitzgerald while the members were still in high school, around year 2002. During the next few years, they endured the lineup changes and artistic roadblocks many young bands experience before taking their present, permanent form. But they still had some growing to do.

“When we started doing Lafcadio, we really didn’t understand what we were getting ourselves into – we were just kids” says Nigro. “We had made a couple demos, put them on the Internet and, after a couple of days, we had record labels calling us ready to sign the band. We all thought this whole band thing was going to come too easily after that. We dropped out of college and made As Tall As Lions our priority.

    now that Kimbra (who i only recently discovered she was the girl singing in Lost My Mind's hidden end part) is blowing up, i wish that ATAL would reform and she would promote them as hell or even do a huge single with them... yeah i'm dreaming

    I listened to these guys on-and-off for a few years and only recently (say, the past few months) have been listening to them almost exclusively. Their music is beautiful and I am sad that they broke up. Here's hoping in due time they'll be back making great music again. *Fingers crossed*

    Honestly one of the most beautiful bands I have ever listened to. I hate myself for just getting into them right before they broke up. Maybe they'll be back one day. I can only hope for now :)
