about

As trends in many punk bands would have us believe, as you get older you mellow out and stop being so damned angry. I never understood that because as we get older I tend to find more things to be mad about… In an angry, adult kind of way I guess. This release might be neither angry nor adult. Or it might be more both than we’ve ever been.. But it IS certainly seven songs with vague comments about “things”. It’s a years’ worth of superficial highs, and documented lows; written while stuck on the 401, crammed in airplane seats, stressing over work, losing sleep, and crying and embarrassing oneself in public. Adult things. ?We hope we’re still just like you.??

Kyle from Wayfarer mentioned the idea of doing a split LP and we jumped at the chance because an LP is seven letters better than an EP, and we did seven songs so it’s like… 77 … Like 1977 - which is the golden rule of punk rock! If you play these songs in reverse it either summons Joe Strummer or Paul Coffey. If it’s Joe he spits in your face and tells you to turn this shit off.

Also because Wayfarer are effortlessly amazing and will only continue to be so, we want to get on paper as being friends with them, and an album locks them in for life.

This is our first release with Dakota on drums. He came around at a particularly low point for us and picked us up not only with his awesome on drumming, but with his awesome attitude. What a guy.

Track Name: The Other Face (M4M)
hanging on the idea that 4am feels right to call from here
this hotel in newark's floor feels good to me
my insides are torn apart, from the soot we ate before
my lack of attention left dinner burned. In spite I ate it all
knowing I don't think about you
even though I said I do

everythings online, you can find anyone so easily on here
I can't hide you from me, goddamn don't take this from me
the way you move
but the guys at the bar fuck better than you do
and they don't hide it from me
goddamn does he remind me
of knowing what I wanna do
even though I'm not supposed to

Living lies almost every day
You feel live when you show the other face
Don’t keep this, quiet
You feel alive when you show the other face

hanging on the idea that 4am will never feel right with you
I can't, this doesn't feel right with you
I can't.. maybe I can? i can't.
my insides are torn apart, from the shit we ate before
from the shit I'm calling guilt
in spite I ate it all
of knowing what I wanna do
even when I'm not supposed to

Living lies almost every day
You feel live when you show the other face
Don’t keep this, quiet
You feel alive when you show the other face

So tell me what you wanna do
Even if you don't want to

Living lies almost every day
You feel live when you show the other face
Don’t keep this, quiet
You feel alive when you show the other face

we gotta talk about this
we can't just just hide the closet
Track Name: Guile
Lies are always heard, and people often hurt
You walked along the edge, of someone's broken word
We knew you so long, and we saw you screaming
when I was gasping for breath
and you filled in

Where did we go wrong? where did you find right?
To kick us when we're down, really down
And it hurt
So I listened to Shellac
I questioned my integrity...but only for a second

Do you regret? after all of this
This is the one thing, I never thought we'ed deal with
different people I guess, different places we've been
We might, rock together but we won't walk together
We might, rock together but we'll never

I just want to drop a line to say that somethings wrong
I don't want to cut the strings that attach to our arms
But Was it really worth it?
After you’re gone?
and after we’re done
and after you’re done
and after you’re gone
and after we’re gone
