GREEN LIZARD is a well established rock band from The Netherlands. Founded in 1994 as teenagers 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 May of 2006, Dutch rockers GREEN LIZARD saw the release of their third record on I Scream Records in Europe. The album is called Las Armas Del Silencio and features 10 solid rock songs which are the best the band ever did. Together with its great artwork, this record is already considered a classic in the history of GREEN LIZARD.
The new self produced album was recorded by Menno Bakker (NRA, Undeclinable) and Alejandro Londoo (Agresin), mixed by Clif Norrell (REM, The Pixies, Rollins, Faith No More, Mansun, Jeff Buckley) in Los Angeles and 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 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 couldnt have done it without the help of Menno and Alejandro. Of course, after recording two previous albums with a man like Clif taught us a lot about making a record.
GREEN LIZARDs 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 wont 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 into their work ethic'. Time will tell, but the new record sounds awesome! It's time that the rest of the world will get a taste of this great rock machine!
After a great performance on the mainstage of Sziget festival in Budapest, Green Lizard hit the road with Skin (ex-Skunk Anansie) during her European tour fall 2006 which was a great succes with lots of new screaming fans.
