Premiere: Watch Born Lion's clip for Bigger Than Jesus, then go to one of their mini-festivals

They're playing in Melbourne, Sydney and Wollongong in the first week of February.

Just under a year on from their blistering sophomore LP Celebrate The Lie, Sydney rockers Born Lion are ready to kick 2019 in the arse with latest single BIgger Than Jesus. It's a thunderous slice of alternative rock'n'roll, and today we're proud as punch to premiere its animated video clip, one created by vocalist/guitarist John Bowker: "I put this video together myself. It was a very time consuming process but admittedly I had a lot of fun making it. The clip follows a dude that feels he can improve his situation with some 'magic' pills. He soon learns it was all a hoax and the pills were merely a placebo. The final twist is that the whole simulation was really just an 8 bit video game being played by a stoned Jesus. Some inception sh#t right there!"

The track comes just before the group kick off their own run of curated mini-festivals AKA Bigger Than Jesus Fest, featuring Born Lion alongside a host of killer bands from Sydney, Melbourne and Wollongong. Check the video and that full run of show dates below:
