The Lemons was founded in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in 2004. The band secured a devout following after their impassioned set at the 2006 Playtime Festival (Mongolia's first and biggest rock fest). Their annual performances at Playtime have consistently been lauded. Their Red Album was the first rock album released by a Mongolian band to achieve national commercial success without heavily compromising its rock sound. The band was able to devote its energies full- time to music and began playing multiple shows a week at Ulaanbaatar music venues. In 2009, The Lemons released their second album, Near Young Lenin On the 3rd Floor. It expanded the band's sound to include influences from post rock to punk rock. Due to its more challenging sound, the album was less popular than their first effort, though in the three years since their first album the core Mongolian rock audience had expanded significantly and almost universally declared it a triumph. In 2015, The Lemons released their third studio album, III. At the same year, The Lemons performed their 3rd big concert at Crocus Event Hall. In May of 2017, The Lemons released their first live album "Unplugged in UB".
