about

The opening track “In Your Wake” is a gospel inspired tribute to the town that made them. Jeff sings “I will walk your streets, and let you inspire me” and inspire it does. The song builds to a crescendo of pounding drums and launches into…

The lead off single “The Sound” is a huge, stadium sized anthem with a massive sing along chorus. The song is about equality, and unification. “turn it up when the world keeps turning us down” sings lead vocalist Jeff Gutteridge , it’s a call to arms to those who society tries to turn down or push aside. Its about love being “louder than the bombs they’re dropping” and coming together as “one love”.

Next up we have “How Many Times” a 70’s inspired rock song about waiting for someone to “take their time, and hurry up” Probably one of the most adventurous songs on the album and one that is sure to become a staple in the live show for years to come.

“Get To Me” sees the band get a little country. The song is about two people who need to be apart, but one party longs for the good times of days gone by. Jeff says “It was written to be a duet, but we decided to save that idea for another song”.

“London & Lindsay” is a full out rocker that tells the story of two women London…and Lindsay and their struggles. The song is meant to tell Jeff’s story, he explains “ I grew up in Lindsay and wanted to be famous, then I went to College in London and started taking music very seriously, I used the city names as the character names to sort of creatively tell my own story”

“Barricade” , the newest song on the album, is where the band felt the duet card was best played. Enlisting the help of fellow Lindsay Singer Cassie Noble, Jeff tells the story of two people wanting to be in love but feeling the other person is likely seeing someone else and isn’t interested. For this one, the band opted for a stripped down , acoustic presentation allowing the lyrics and vocal performances of Jeff and Cassie to highlight the track.

The oldest song on the album, “You Fell Down” blasts it’s way into your ears with a rousing “Whoa oh oh” sing along and is easily the albums most “pop punk” song taking influence from bands like Paramore and Mayday Parade. It’s a song built for the stage with singalong vocals and a clap along middle section. Originally written and partially recorded in 2011 this song was almost lost until earlier this year when Jeff was scouring an old hard drive and found the drum tracks! The band quickly convened to finish it off.

Closing out the album is the epic ballad “Chasing Light”. The Drums were recorded in 2015 with Barry Haggarty, the bands original producer, Chasing Light is a British Pop style ballad that sees Jeff wrap his pensive lyrics “I’m tired of wishing time away, it’s not fair to those who live their lives embracing everyday” , around Jay’s beautiful bass work and Randy’s soaring lead hooks. The track fades away to the sound of a distant thunderstorm and a man asking for his lord “to come home tonight”. It’s both mournful and hopeful all at the same time, “lighters up in the pouring rain” describes Jeff.

“Youth” is Here, “Youth” is Now

Track Name: In Your Wake
In your wake, do you know that I will follow?
In your wake, do you know that I'll be there
And I will walk your streets, and let you inspire me
And let your street lights point me home

In your wake, do you know what you have made me?
With every friend, that I've lost along the way
And I will walk your streets and let your light shine down on me
And let your street lights point me home

And I will walk your streets and let you inspire me
And let your street lights point me home tonight
Track Name: The Sound
I've been running outta daylight
I’ve been running into you
You know ya got me in the crossfire
Cover it up like a bad tattoo

You got a body like a race car
You’re going fast all the time
But I just wanna let it out
Wanna make you mine

Don’t want to waste another day
Sneaking around with the games we play
Don’t want to waste another day with you

This is how we turn it up
Hold my hand girl light it up
Turn it up when the world keeps
Turning us down
We love the sound
This is how we turn it up
Hold my hand boy and light it up
Turn it up when the world keep
Turning ya down
We love the sound

Cmon play another rock song
The night is young
And we’re just getting started
Livin’ it up cos we’re one love
If you’re hangin at a rock bar
Or if it’s coming out of your car
It don’t matter where you are now
We love it loud

There’s no use in your heart breaking
Under rug swept is the point we’re making
Cmon let it out let’s start talking
Show em all we’re one love !
Doesn’t matter if you come from nothin
Everybody needs to feel like something
Love is louder than the bombs they’re dropping
Cmon let me hear you !
Track Name: How Many Times?
I fell alive, like I'm in front of it
In a dream last night I tried to run from it
In the middle of a heartbreak, I ain't nothing left here for you to take

Take your time, hurry up
Choice is yours, you know you won't be late
How many times before a heart breaks?
How many times must I wait for you?

I feel alive, but just a little bit
I never quite fit in, I'm just a misfit
In the middle of a heartbreak, i ain't nothing left here for you to take

Wait up right now
I swear that I can see your face
Wait up, wait up
I swear this is my last mistake
And I'm holding onto all your beautiful ways
To let me down, Ya I'm holding onto
Track Name: Get To Me
Welcome to my life she said, god bless this alcohol
Another shot of whiskey down, can't feel the pain anymore
Picking up the phone but I can't bring myself to call
I need to hear your voice so I can't make some sense of it all

Now your gone, without a trace
Looking back with a smile on your face
Can't believe that this could be the end of it all

I need you to get to me
I don't need to live like this
All these empty [pages again
I don't think you'd understand why I had to leave
I don't need to live like this
Looking through these pages again
I don't think you'd understand why I need you to get to me

I still hear you cry at night when walking by your door
I wish I could come in and hold you like I did before

I still can't believe that your gone without a trace
Looking back with a smile on your face
Can't believe that this could be the end of it all

Need you to help me now
All my dreams are running away
Need you to tell me now
Everything will be ok
Track Name: London & Lindsay
Lindsay's a girl I knew back in high school
She always dreamed of her face on a magazine
She had a smile that could light up the world
She was a beautiful American girl
This is the story of London & Lindsay just finding their way

Sing me a song, in a hotel room about a barmaid who used to smile
Bring me a long girl you're driving me crazy
Singing along, to every other word man Old Chicago's on fire
Bring me along girl somebody save me
All I ask

London's a girl i knew back in college
She had two black X's on the back of her hand
She swore that she needed no man
Because she's married to a rock n' roll band
This is the story of London & Lindsay just finding their way

And if you leave don't leave me on my own
London screams at Lindsay I can't make it here on my own
Because her mother died and left her there all alone
Please don't leave me here on my own
Track Name: Barricade
Have you heard the news
The lights are going out on the west side
Now that you're not here
And you think she's here tonight you're all I'm thinking about

Those summer nights on the midway, trying to get through to you
Now the drugs don't work but tonight all I'm thinking is
How will I know if we're gonna make it out
All I know is you can't be lonely now
Trying to get where we want to be
I'm no my way tonight

You crash my heart like a renegade
Cut through my walls with your switch blade
And all my life, I want to be there by your side
I'm like a car speeding fast on a motorway
That comes crashing through your barricade
And all my life, I want to be there by your side

Have you heard the news, there's no emotion coming out of my stereo
Now that you're not around
And you think he's here tonight, you're all I'm thinking about
I've spent too much time on the radio
Trying to get through to you
Now the drugs don't work but tonight all I'm thinking us
How will I know if we're gonna make it out
All I know is you can't be lonely now
We're trying to get where we want to be
I'm on my way tonight
Track Name: You Fell Down
I think we got an emergency right now
For the sake of my heart let me go
I think we're losing the urgency right now
Hold on here we go

You must have fallen back down, ya it's a long way
You must have fallen back down, and got blown away

You fell down, you had already drown
Maybe it's better this way
And when the lights go down, you got lost in the sound
Maybe it's better this way

I think it's time for some honesty right now
There's something you gotta know
I think I need an apology
I'm tired of singing a eulogy right now
Hold on here we go

And I don't know what I'm fighting for
Won't you sing along right now
All the lives we beg and borrow
All the wrongs we will right tomorrow
Sing along right now

If you think you heard me right
Hold'em up and start a fire
Won't you sing along right now
C'mon and sing it to me
C'mon and help me won't you sing along right now
You got lost in the sound
Sing along right now

All the nights we beg and borrow
All the wrongs we'll right tomorrow
Sing along right now
For all the ones that spent their youth
With and old guitar and a bottle of truth
Sing along right now
Track Name: Chasing Light
Closer than you thought it would be
Chasing a moment, trying to figure out just who to be
Living on the edge of a dream
Chase it forever, never get to find out what it means
Where did all the good times go?
Back when you would save my soul
They're blowing away
And I will be right there by you

Closer to the end tonight
Embracing a moment
Caught between the darkness and the light
Holding on the edge of dear life
Just hoping that you'll hear my prayer
And come and throw me a line

I tired of wishing time away
It's not fair to those who live their lives embracing every day
But I will be right there by you

And you want to say, that I'm never good enough
But I don't believe a word you say
And you're gonna find that leaving now
It just might be your best mistake
I believe in time
And I'm leaving today
Chasing the light

I know it's going to be one of those days
I know I'm gonna be chasing the light
