Judah & the Lion are legit Taylor Swift fans. Frontman Judah Akers goes so far as to categorize himself as obsessed.
Akers and the band outed themselves as Swifties with a recent tweet, where they categorized the pop superstars latest album, Reputation, as “all bops.”
“I was the one that tweeted it,” revealed Akers during an interview with KROQ DJs Kevin and Bean. at the 2017 Almost Acoustic Christmas concert. “I’ve become obsessed with her last record. As loved as she is and popular, she also has some haters, like she says on the record. When I tweeted that, I wasn’t expecting the backlash that I got from it. I wasn’t trying to say anything offensive to anybody. I was saying that I thought that the songs were catchy.”
Things got even more interesting when Bean revealed that not only is he too a bona fide Swiftie (while Kevin is “so anti-Taylor Swift”), but that he recently scored pre-sale tickets for her upcoming stadium tour. Bean bonded with Judah & the Lion drummer Spencer Cross, who also admitted that he had also scored pre-sale ducats for Swift’s Reputation tour.
