Lebowski is a five piece metal band with heavy Hardcore style elements formed late 2011 by drummer Guy ‘Higgy’ Higginson & Jonno ‘Juanos’ Wheeler. Lebowski then recruited vocalist Owen Lipski & bassist Layton Puru.
The personal style and influences of the individual members fuse together in layers, combining to create an aggressive, groove filled hardcore sound. Rather than adhere to any one predefined sub-genre within metal, Lebowski use whatever they feel is needed to lead any one track in the general direction of the end.
Within a year of forming Lebowski acquired a second guitarist Andy Wilkinson, and the band polished their songs to recording standard to begin their album. Final tracking was done a year later and after sending everything to get mixed & mastered in the USA, the album is finally finished and ready for release on December 5th with an album tour expected early 2015.
Lebowski has performed with a number of local and international bands including; Volumes (US), Stray From The Path (US), The Acacia Strain (US), 8 Foot Sativa, Tainted, Depths and Blindfolded And Led To The Woods.
