Vinyl LP pressing. The Only Reason I Feel Secure is the second EP by Pedro the Lion. Originally released as a 5 track EP in 1999 on Made In Mexico Records, it was re-issued by Jade Tree records in 2001 with 3 bonus tracks which originally constituted the bands's first single - and appear only on the Jade Tree reissue. After a shifting lineup, Pedro the Lion eventually became a one-man outfit. That man is David Bazan. A Seattle native, Bazan cut his teeth playing in hardcore bands before forming Pedro in 1995, taking the band's name from a character he made up for a possible children's book. Under the moniker of Pedro the Lion, Bazan creates melodic pop in the vein of Bedhead, Hayden, and Sebadoh, with a lyrical focus on relationships - with both other people and God. In early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name.
