“In the beginning, we just wanted to play rowdy, stupid shows for our friends,” says singer Mitch Gillam. “We were just focused on playing fun music, as cliché as it sounds,and on making weekends a little dangerous again around Tulsa.”
Lizard Police has gone above and beyond its original call of duty, releasing its full-length debut, “Make Muscles,” in March and readying a follow-up EP for this summer. The bizarre, but perfect blend of indie pop and hardcore music that Gilliam, Austin McAfee and brothers Nick and Clay Flores are crafting seems almost to demand the amount of work they’ve put into it in two short years; it’s more than friends thirsting for new songs, it’s a growing legion of fans lusting after a nowsignature sound.

Their newest EP, Colossolalia, was released in March of this year. “Our motto for this new record is, ‘More lasers,’” Gilliam said. “It’s cramming in as much stupid guitar, bass and drum stuff in there while maintaining the pop core to it.”
