about

This is our debut album, and we're seriously proud of it!

(we're humble, too!)

We started writing tunes together in the summer of 2013, and it wasn't long before we had enough material to turn into a serious project.

After playing the heck out of all kinds of riffs, drum beats, bits and pieces, we began forming complete songs, with a full album concept in mind.

"Concrete Echo" loosely tells a story of corruption, isolation, love and longing. That being said, the lyrics don't have one solid meaning. Whatever they mean to you? Well, that's exactly what they mean.

Anyways, now that the artsy, autobiographical, pretentious stuff is out of the way, we really hope you enjoy it even half as much as we enjoyed creating it!

Cheers, friends!

-John and Chris

Track Name: Sound to Hear (Part 1)
(It's just a sound I want to hear)
Track Name: Is It Right?
Is it right, what they want?
Is it right, why you're here?
Would you stand in my place?
Believing all you want is in your head

Here I am, barely free
Would you please let me be?
Show me now
I will plea

Said you wouldn't leave, but there you go
Moving on your own like I've always known
Headed down to hell
You're alone

Holding out until you're dead
Track Name: Saturday On Your Mind
Well it's late and the lights are turned low
They all think you're nothing when you look their way
Emotion tearing down those physical lines
Emotion tearing down those physical lines

You are coming around

Another thinks of something when the other one's told
Out of control in a two step in four
Emotion tearing down those physical lines
Emotion tearing down those physical lines

You are coming around

Know you'll stay
Know I'll wait
I know I can't

Know you'll stay
Know you'll wait
I know I need you now

You are coming around
Track Name: Back Inside (Hide Low)
Said "do you wanna go?"
Looking down the road
Head to the other side
Keep them all alive

Set off the phasing one
(hide low)
(hide low)
Set off the phasing one
(hide low)
(hide low)

Said "do you wanna go?"
Tell them all you know
Run to the other side
Keep them all alive
Track Name: Only Friend in Town
Hold my thoughts on you for now
Until you seem to turn around
Don't you be that enemy!
They will take you day by day

You were my only friend in town

Did it, but you don't know why
Waiting for the only lie
Don't you think it's time to see
Soon you'll know it's only me

Don't be afraid, I want you to be around
If you would stay, I'd lay the blame on down
Don't be afraid, I want to hear your sound
If you would stay, I could say aloud

You were my only friend in town
Track Name: Desperate Times
Said what you wanted, but I don't agree
Waited alone in the open sea
Draw it out, it's confrontation
Round you go with complication

Desperate times in our way
Every second
Every day
Chance that life
Wait for the others' lives to slide

Knew what you wanted, but I won't plea
Now I'm losing
I heard it's me
Speak your mind and show conviction
There you go with a contradiction
Track Name: Flying Sightless (Sound to Hear Part 2)
It's just a sound I want to hear
It's just your touch I've got to feel
Every night at home
Track Name: Huxley
Wait
You know I've waited the longest time
Hate
You know it's bringing me down

Wait
You know I waited the longest time
Hate
You know I waited a long damn time

Out
You're always keeping me out of here
Doubt
You know it's always on my mind

Wait
You know I waited a long damn time
Hate
You know I waited a long damn time

Lost
You know that I can't find myself
Hell
You know I'm always in this state

Wait
You know I waited a long damn time
Hate
You know I waited a long damn time
Track Name: For Your Quarter
I said it's emotion
The other's been broken
If you need it, I will concede
Wait for the other side
(Wait for the other side)

It's always crashing down
It's always barely

One more time in the distance
As you put me down
One more time of resistance
As you want it to be

What's the commotion?
The other promoted
If you want it
I will haunt it
Wait for the other side
Track Name: Lost Parade
Masquerader, lost parade
Looking all around
High as you I'm bound to be looking at the ground

I see you run

Your charade it's day to say
Looking for an end
Safe to say you're on your way
Looking for an end

I see you run

She's burning on her own
Can't take it
Can't take it
She's burning on her own
Can't take it
Can't take it

Masquerader, lost parade
Looking all around
Safe to say you're on your way
Looking for an end

I see you run

(I tell you)

She's burning on her own
Can't take it
Can't take it
She's burning on her own
Can't take it
Can't take it
Track Name: Sound to Hear (Part 3)
I can see you out there
Looking for a way to go
I can feel your heart attack
Moving like an echo

I will wait in silence
Call you
Hear my voice
All aligned you'll see me
Tearing down your street again

It's just a sound I want to hear
It's just your touch I've got to feel
Every night at home

Waited for these chains to break
Falling from my back again
Time and time you've shut me down,
but here and now I'll say

It's just a sound I want to hear
It's just your touch I've got to feel
Every night at home

It's just a sound I want to hear
It's just your touch I've got to feel
Every night at home
