It is said that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but Punchline decided to shuffle up the old saying. On March 31st, they released their eight album, Lion, with a show fit for a king. No, really, they came on stage to The Lion King and had Punchline IPA beer with a lion on it. The Colourshow, The Stolen, and The Morning Light started off the night right at Mr. Smalls Theatre. Punchline played a few songs from their new album with some long time fan favorites. According to Chris Fafalios, the band's bassist and co-founding member, “If you already like our band,” he says, “there’s a good chance this will be your favorite album of ours. I feel pretty strongly this is the album people want from us.” (source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) And he is not lying about the album. Lion goes father with the human experience than some of their earlier works. It is a well crafted body of songs that is packaged with a nice bow, that bow being Steve Soboslai talented songwriting.
