Formed in 2015 in Hawick by David Reid (vocals) John Findlay (guitar) and Rob Wood (keyboards), The Boy With The Lion Head soon added Alistair Clarkson (bass) to the band and began playing gigs around the Scottish Borders.

After gaining a small local following, Angus Hamilton (replaced now by Amy Hamilton) (percussion) joined the band during the recording of debut EP The Ebb and Flow. The EP achieved some success, notably airplay of The Eyes That Met Mine on Jim Gellatly's Amazing Radio Show.

More gigs followed in 2016, including support slots with JR Green and Man of Moon in Glasgow's famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut venue, and James Grant (formerly of Love and Money) in the bands hometown of Hawick. The year culminated in the release of second EP Everything is Temporary and a small run of headline shows in Edinburgh and Glasgow to promote the release. This is a Battlefield received airplay from radio stations across Europe, including Ralph's indie show on Radio KC, Radio Kampus in Warsaw and BBC Introducing.
