With their formation in late 2014, TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN (THOUSAND LIONS AMONG ENEMIES) have begun their assault. The successful debut EP ‘Licht’, the first sign of life of the band, indicated a brewing storm. With German, socially critical lyrics and short, concise and at the same time catchy songs, a clear manifesto was put down right from the start. A total of five pressings of the single, on the label Ready To Fight Records, are already sold out. The CD was released on the label Let It Burn Records. Constant musical and conceptual development led to the creation of the band’s debut album ‘Machtwort’, which was presented to the fans live on the BANE farewell tour in November and December 2015.
Their debut album ‘Machtwort’, again released on the Munich label Let it Burn Records, is a concept album about a person’s life from birth to death. This path follows different stages of life and discusses defeats and victories, values and attitudes toward life. Inspired especially by ‘Siddhartha’ by Hermann Hesse, the life of the protagonist runs like a thread along the Buddha’s stages of life. The first pressing of the album was sold out in a short time and a second pressing was released with a new cover on Let It Burn Records.
In March 2016, the rebellion tour with MADBALL, CROWN OF THORNZ and RYKER’S followed, as well as numerous festivals in the summer of 2016, such as Endless Summer, RockCamp Festival, North Open Air, Tells Bells Festival etc. At the beginning of 2017, the band started recording a split 7″ with the Californian band LAST LIGHT (ex-UNITY, ex-OUTSPOKEN). This split was released in the summer of 2017 on Unity Worldwide Records. In June, the band played at the With Full Force Festival for the first time.
The band released their second album ‘Zwischenwelt’ in the summer of 2019 on Unity Worldwide Records. The album received high praise from fans and critics and stayed for weeks at the numer one spot on CoreTex’s bestseller list. They continue playing at clubs and festivals throughout Europe, supporting the local scene and performing at benefit shows for non-profit organisations.
