Artist of the day: Proud Iron Lion




Tampa and North Pinellas five-piece Proud Iron Lion is composed of guitarists Eric Dina, Matthew Yungaitis and Joseph Saponara; bassist Adam Rivera; and drummer Mark Goldstein. That's right: No permanent singer.

The band doesn't need it. Their warm, highly atmospheric brand of indie rock combines the finest musical elements of Death Cab For CutieBroken Social Scene and Explosions in the Sky. Their five-song EP, Penguin Party, was recorded in a single weekend before a show. Click here to check out our review of a Proud Iron Lion performance at New World Brewery in July.

The band plays Friday at Pangea Cafe, 34 N Fort Harrison Ave., Clearwater, alongside Alexander and the Grapes and the Sun Society. Click here for details.
