It's Hard to Find a Friend is the debut full-length effort by Pedro the Lion; a solid indie rock album with plenty of lyrical talent to spare. Upon its release in 1998, the record was an instant hit, propelling singer/songwriter David Bazan into the consciousness of newfound fans around the globe and topping many critics' lists, making it a must for any Pedro The Lion fan. 2018 is the 20th anniversary of the original release of the album and its been remastered for this new vinyl reissue from Epitaph Records. In early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro The Lion moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name. In December of 2017 Bazan announced that Pedro The Lion will reunite after eleven years for a new album and a worldwide tour.
