Video Premiere: Behind the Scenes of LEOGUN’s By the Reins


“You don’t do rock n’ roll in moderation.”

So says LEOGUN singer and guitarist Tommy Smith. The band released a brief behind-the-scenes video, in which Smith explains the surprisingly innocent meaning behind “Piggy in the Middle” off their recently released debut album¬†By the Reins. The British threesome, who relocated to Nashville to record the full length with Yamaha, have already been compared to rock legends like Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy and Queens of the Stone Age. Easily embodied as ¬†much by Smith’s wild curls and as the lively blues-based riffs he thrashes along to, LEOGUN define their band as half-lion, half-man. In just over a minute and a half, it’s not hard to see why.
