Writer by day. Dreamer by night.
This entire journey has been a very staggering one. From wavering band dynamics to reinforced guidance from our producer, we’ve been pushed and pulled into depths that couldn’t have crossed our minds going into this. Personally, I know I will take a great deal of this back with me as my drive and confidence is now more powerful than ever.
Somehow…just somehow…Erik has actually enabled me to like the sound of my own voice. I’ve never been able to say that. I never thought I would.
This is bigger than us and we need to continue on this path no matter what. I don’t have time or patience to put up with bullshit…because time marches on and so do I.
Dude. You guys. I am so proud of this album. It will take some time before its ready for release but on that day, I might pee my pants.
I’m sure you’ve seen, but the band that I am so lucky to be a part of is headed out to Hollywood in 19 days to record our second EP. After careful consideration, we decided to launch an Indiegogo campaign to give our family, friends and fans a chance to be a part of this enormous dream with us.
We only have 4 more days left on the campaign! We’re not even close to making our goal, but every little bit helps to pay for studio costs.
I just updated our perks list and one of the perks offers a haircut and style by me at A Davis Brown Salon in Grand Rapids as well as a digital download of the album before it’s official release.
Here is a little update from me about Fine Fine Titans, answering a few questions that were asked of us! We are 25 days away from boarding the plane to Los Angeles to record our new album. We only have 10 days left on our campaign and we need your help more than ever.
I’ve really been blessed thus far to be able to share my deepest desires with so many of you. The older I get and the more people I lose, the more abruptly the reality strikes me that we are not invincible. We’re plagued with this idea of the “American Dream”…that you grow up in a healthy home, attend college, attain a job that hopefully you like, get married, have a few kids, celebrate the holidays the same way every year with the same banana bread recipe, pass that on to your grandchildren and then die of natural causes. Some people are comfortable with this and some people dream of this. Then there is me.
I absolutely couldn’t stomach taking anything in my life for granted, but dare I say that I am not satisfied with the status quo. The American Dream is not my dream and nor is it for some other people. But here is the thing…I am not concerned with what you dream about, I am only concerned that we all find the courage and strength to step outside of the box, confess that our aspirations may not be the popular vision and charge our way through to seek out whatever it is that we dare to dream.
My dream is to make music. To tour the world, reach out and connect to people who may have lost their way or who know their way and just need a push forward. I’m dying to meet other people with similar ambitions who just want to make positive changes in our world and to create the sort of community that only art and music can.
Everyone needs a little help. I certainly am no stranger to this. This opportunity that we have been given to make a superb product and to expand our horizons can help us to reach audiences that staying in this little Michigan town never could. We don’t know for certain that this will be our ticket in to the major leagues and we are not immune to the fantasy of the situation. Beyond the recording of this album, we will still have to work our hands to the bone to tour how we want and reach the audiences we strive to. We know it won’t be a cakewalk, but we’re diving head first into this because even though I joke of it in the video, it’s true, we could leave this earth at any given moment without ever leaving any sort of impact in the world.
So we’re going to Hollywood to record an album. It’s going to be fucking expensive, so that’s why we need your help.
These nightmares drive me crazy They keep my heart a fuming high I feed the devil caffeine while he While he bleeds my ears dry He speaks to me of lust and love Confuses me when he says “Your lust will never be warm enough To breathe your love bright red.”
Forgive me, God, But did you hear what he just said? He’s backing your words of virtue but You still hold that gun to his head.
“You’ve got it all wrong…” Spoke the preacher of my song, “…the devil only speaks these lies To keep a razor tongue. To slice open the seams of your brain, Implant frozen embryos, So by the time they thaw and you recall, The devil already has control.”
Well I can’t count the times that That I let him direct my eyes To the same obscurity that you You harbor in your heart It takes one to know one and so I’ve I’ve spent my days apart From the lord because the devil said, “It takes light to know the dark.”
My favorite track from the EP…we don’t perform this live but I really wish we would.
Here’s to the murk that spews from your lips Here’s to the fifth that’s glued to your hip Here’s to the tragic endings you begged for, desperately Each time you tried to knock me to the…
Four, five, your triple six nonsense Today, you’ll speak for Satan Tomorrow, you’ll preach repentance
Cheers to a preposterous soul, Disguising demons with control Here’s to misleading yourself To believe you’re holding your ground As you fashion your destruction
Today, you’ll speak for Satan Tomorrow, preach repentance (x2)
Flee the scene, fast enough to evade the scene Of each enemy marching to see the end of your deceit Instead we’ll keep a move away Far from your misery parade You know it’s not the first, we know it’s not the last Time you’ll cry out for a comeback
As you plead restitution This will be the last time I speak about… As you rot in self-infliction This will be the last time I speak about…
As you plead restitution This will be the last time we speak about… As you rot in self-infliction This will be the last time I sing about… …you
This will be the last time I speak your name…
You know it’s not the first, We know it’s not the last Time you’ll cry out for a motherfucking comeback.
Comeback, come back.
As you plead restitution This will be the last time we speak about… As you rot in self-infliction This will be the last time we speak about…
The last time I sing about you. The last time I scream.
I really don’t feel like talking about you anymore, but just so you know, you will be eternalized on the internet because of me. If there is one positive thing that I ever received from you is the push to write angry music. Since this song, I’ve felt absolutely free from the disdain that I’ve had for you for years.
