In 2005 the Living Things exploded out of St. Louis with their major record label debut Ahead of Lions. Their ferocious, unapologetic rock instantly won them praise by critics and fans. Unwilling to take what was happening under the Bush administration, the Living Things wrote songs that grabbed politics by the throat. The band is made up of three brothers, Lillian Berlin, Eve Berlin, Bosh Berlin, and their friend Cory Becker. Shortly after their success The Living Things picked up and moved to Los Angeles.

The Living Things' new album, Habeas Corpus drops this February. They will also be opening for Eagles of Death Metal this Wednesday at the Henry Fonda Theater. It will a rare opportunity to see hear what they've been working on these past four years before it drops later on this month. Their provocative front man, Lillian was kind enough to speak with us over the weekend. Here is some of what was said.
