GREEN LIZARD is a well established rock band from The Netherlands. Founded in 1994 they almost immediately secured themselves of a large and loyal fan base in their hometown Tilburg. Thanks to their enigmatic live shows and extensive touring Green Lizard built up a solid live reputation throughout Europe, played the Vans Warped tour in 2003 and even did shows in South America.
In the beginning of February 2006, Dutch rockers GREEN LIZARD will release their third record on I Scream Records in Europe. The album is called ‘Las Armas Del Silencio’ and will future 10 solid rock songs which are the best the band ever did. With great artwork this record will be a classic in the history of GREEN LIZARD.
The new self produced record was recorded at the Bunt's studio with Menno Bakker (NRA, Undeclinable) and the Source Recordings Studio with Alejandro Londono (Agresion). Famous producer/engineer/mixer Clif Norrell (REM, The Pixies, Rollins, Faith No More, Mansun, Jeff Buckley) did the mix in Los Angeles and the album was mastered at John Golden Mastering. Singer Remi about the recordings: ’This was definitely a new experience for us. By recording in different studios and with different people, we definitely got the best of both worlds in this recording! Although it was extremely fun to produce it ourselves, it was a lot more work than we anticipated and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Menno and Alejandro. Ofcourse recording twice with a man like Clif taught us a lot about making a record.’
GREEN LIZARD’s previous albums were put out by Sony Music and sold more than 22.000 copies just in the Netherlands. Singer Remi: 'We never planned on signing to a major but our label got bought up by Sony Music. We sold pretty well and the last record 'Newborn' was supposed to be a European Sony signing but that never happened. We get offers to tour in Europe and the States all the time, but we never had a release there. This time we decided to find a label that can get the record out in all of Europe.'
The future looks bright for the band, a new release, distribution in all of Europe and the shows are lining up. Remi: 'We are definitely ready to rock! We are very pleased with our new record, it just breathes rock. I Scream is also very enthusiastic and we have short lines with them so I think we can do what we want to. This time we won’t get caught by a big machine like we were in the past. I know that they have a lot of hardcore bands on their roster but I think we fit right in their working ethic'. Time will tell but the new record sounds awesome! It's time that the rest of Europe will get a taste of this great rock machine!
