Written by : Categories : Show Announcement, Shows Comments: 0 comment

Hey TLB fans, we have 2 shows left this year! These will be the last 2 chances to see TLB before we hit the studio for our next album, so mark these on your calendar.

First of all, our show at the Marquis theater is cancelled (you may have seen that on BandsInTown), and in its place we have a show at the Larimer Lounge on 8/17 (a Wednesday) at 8pm. We are pretty excited about this one, we will be playing with a couple of bands that we really respect, Natural Geometry, Big Rock Radio, and Secret Creatures. This is going to be a great show! Here is the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1071962819547931/

Our last show of the year is at 3 Kings on 9/9 (Friday night). We are still finalizing the lineup, but looks like our good friends Room 204 and Natural Geometry will definitely be hanging with us that night. Stay tuned for the final details on that show.

Don’t forget to track us on BandsInTown, Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. As we get into October and later, we are going to be working hard in the studio on our next album which is already mostly written. We are pretty stoked about it, there are some great tunes that we can’t wait to get out for people to listen to.

See you at the shows!

New Single: Peace

Hey TLB fans, our 5th single from Vection is out now! The song is called Peace. Listen to it now for free her on our website (player embedded on the left) on Soundcloud, or if you really like it, buy it on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or listen on Spotify.

This song is a little more happy than our typical angsty style, for me this song is about the healing that comes when you find someone you emotionally connect with. When I first wrote it it was very mellow and acoustic (maybe I will release a version of that at some point in the future), but with some heavy guitars it turned into a great upbeat song. We experimented with some subtle electronic sounds in the studio, especially in the chorus, so let us know what you think!

Don’t forget… Like our Facebook page, (it helps us book shows); follow us on Twitter (if you want tweeted news on Thursday and Friday afternoons), and share this email with friends that you think might enjoy our art!

Lyrics:
You light the fire and hand me the flame,
And I feel the burn!
You quench the ire and I shed my shame,
Now it’s your turn!

You bring peace to violence.
An olive branch where I’m entrenched.

I now aspire to this new frame, fill the cistern!
And you never tire, and there’s no more blame
And we touch and learn!

You bring peace to violence!
An olive branch where I’m entrenched.

And spade by spade we fill the holes.
You eat the rot out of my soul.
You catch the tears until I’m whole.
Yeah, until I’m whole!

You light the fire and hand me the flame,
And I feel the burn!
You quench the ire and I shed my shame,
Now it’s your turn!

You bring peace to violence.
An olive branch where I’m entrenched.

And spade by spade we fill the holes.
You eat the rot out of my soul.
You catch the tears until I’m whole.
Yeah, until I’m whole!

And spade by spade we fill the holes.
I’ll eat the rot out of your soul.
I’ll catch the tears until you’re whole.
Yeah, until you’re whole!

You bring peace to violence!
An olive branch where I’m entrenched!
You bring peace to violence!
An olive branch where I’m entrenched!

New Single: Abide

Hey TLB fans, this week we have yet another single from our album Vection. The song is called Abide. Listen to it now for free in the player on the left, on Soundcloud, or if you really like it, buy it on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or listen on Spotify.

This song is one of my favorites, and features a driving guitar riff, and a message about overcoming adversity. It’s a long song standing at 7 minutes – starting with some simmering and growing energy that climaxes in an amazing guitar solo by Chris Bloom, and a hard hitting chorus. I find myself coming back to this track again and again. This was one of the first songs to come to life in the studio, and have been anxious to share it with everyone. I hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics:

You’re elusive whispers have gone mute.
The fear and pain arises amidst the truth.
And I can finally feel my boiling blood.
My sinews crack and strain underneath the flood.
And I am buffeted on all sides.
Spurned and berated, yet I abide.
Yet I abide; yet I abide.

I contemplate regret as I walk the past.
But deftly pick my footsteps all along the path.
And I can finally see what is wrong with me.
With singular vision I commence revision.
And I am buffeted on all sides.
Spurned and berated, yet I abide.
Yet I abide; yet I abide.

Don’t you discount me!
My gaze resides upon the Beacon!
This is the only scene
Upon which resides all hope and reason!

Don’t you discount me!
My gaze resides upon the Beacon!
This is the only scene
Upon which resides all hope and reason!

New Single: The Way It Should Be

Hey TLB fans, this week we have another single from our album Vection. The song is called The Way It Should Be. Listen to it now for free on Soundcloud, or if you really like it, buy it on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or listen on Spotify.

This song is the oldest of the songs on the album, I wrote the music several years ago, but only recently was able to marry up some lyrics to go with it. It’s a little bit more mellow than the rest of the songs on the album – featuring an acoustic guitar and more spotlight on the vocals. This also got sliced and diced a million ways in the studio, but we finally settled on a really great version of the song that I’m really happy with. I hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics:

I’ve had it wrong from the start. Why didn’t you tell me?
I was oblivious and played my part. Why didn’t you stop me?
I gave it all of my heart. Why didn’t you shake me?
I never imagined us apart. Why didn’t you stop me?

Can’t you see the tears dripping from my chin? Why didn’t you help me?
I’m not the one who bears original sin. Why didn’t you stop me?
I’ve had it wrong from the start. Why didn’t you tell me?
I was oblivious and played my part. Why didn’t you stop me?

I’ve gotta get out. I don’t need anymore of your help.
I’ll find my way out, and I’ll find myself.
I’m on my own and that’s the way it should be!
That’s the way it should be. That’s the way it should be.

Do’nt you try to tell me ot come on home. Why didn’t you help me?
I don’t want to hear what you think I’ve done. Why didn’t you stop me?
I’ve gotta get out. I don’t need anymore of your help.
I’ll find my way out, and I’ll find myself.
I’m on my own and that’s the way it should be!
That’s the way it should be.
That’s the way it should be.

That’s the way it should be!

Hey TLB fans, we are continuing our release of singles from our album Vection – this week, I’m happy to share with you our second single, How Do I Feel? Listen to it now for free on Soundcloud (streaming in the player at left at the time of this post) or if you really like it, buy it on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or listen on Spotify.

The song is a little more punk than our other songs on the album, it’s obviously a breakup song, but it is fun and playful while a little raw and cathartic.

Lyrics:

I come bearing gifts of these
little pieces of shit that you
left inside my soul the day that I walked.
I hide these little packages
under bushels with my talents; these
reminders of a path that we stalked.
There’s no more for you to see here!
You’re so fucking pious and sincere!
I know of the blackness inside you.
You never had any interest in how I feel!
And how do I feel?
How do I feel?
How do I feel?
It’s nice that you finally asked.

We’ve come so far together
despite all of the stormy weather
it feels so strange not having you there.
But these binds have fallen from my wrists
and I see we no longer exist
and I have just enough time to spare.
There’s no more for you to see here!
You’re so fucking pious and sincere!
I know of the blackness inside you.
You never had any interest in how I feel!
And how do I feel?
How do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked.
And how do I feel?

How do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked.

So we were sitting at the table arguing,
then she said something for no other reason than to piss me off.
It was totally irrelevant and I was just like: Did you just say that? Fuck you!

I try my best not to look back
but this is an immutable fact
that you are always part of my breath.
I hold this close inside of my heart
and focus all I can on the part
of me that learned the most from our death.

There’s no more for you to see here!
You’re so fucking pious and sincere!
I know of the blackness inside you.
You never had any interest in how I feel!
And how do I feel?
How do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked.
And how do I feel?
How do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked.
And how do I feel?

How do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked.
And how do I feel?

Oh, how do I feel?
How do I feel? 
It’s nice that you finally asked!
