Pedro the Lion
A cornerstone of late-'90s indie rock, David Bazan's long-running project Pedro the Lion bridged slowcore and emo with a deeply introspective strain of melodic guitar rock. A frequently rotating lineup supported Bazan's steadfast leadership, carrying the Seattle-based band from their D.I.Y. lo-fi roots to more widespread success via seminal albums like 1998's It's Hard to Find a Friend and 2002's Control. Bazan's songwriting explored a range of themes from moody personal reflections and political discourse to his ongoing struggle with his Christian faith. Following 2004's Achilles Heel, Pedro the Lion disbanded for 15 years as its leader embarked on a solo career before returning in 2019 with the comeback album Phoenix. Proving to be more than a one-off reunion, the group returned a few years later with 2022's Havasu.
