Biography

Snew often draws comparisons between AC/DC and Led Zeppelin, with a little Ramones thrown in. An odd mix which only goes to prove the originality of a band
whose sound is so easily accessible to the masses.

March 30 2010 Snew released their second album “We Do What We Want” with best selling audio guide guru Bobby Owsinski in the producers chair and Grammy winner Ed Cherney best known for his work with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and
Eric Clapton on engineering and mixing duties. Recording took place at the
renowned Los Angeles studio Village Recorder. This album takes sonic leaps for
the band and contains what many industry insiders are calling hit after hit.

In 2009 Snew teamed up with legendary improvisational guitarist Allan Holdsworth for a new rendition of the Deep Purple classic Highway Star that has been coveted by Holdsworth and Purple fans as a surprising gem that gets uncounted and continuous downloads across global legal portals like iTunes and
bootleg spots like Bit Torrent.

The bands debut album “Snew You” released July 2008 has received critical praise and was named one of the Top Ten Albums of 2008 by SleazeRoxx.com.

Snew continues to expand its reach across international borders with an increasing number of broadcast and internet radio stations too many to count.

These days Snew is one of the most talked about bands on the Internet and has an international fan base.

We Do What We Want

Written By: Curtis Don Vito

EVERYBODY’S PRETTY AT 1 AM
EVERYBODY’S GOT A CHANCE
YEAH, YOU REMIND ME OF THE ONE I LOVE
THE ONE I NEVER TOOK TO THE DANCE

COME ON LEND A HAND

OH BABY EVERYBODY’S GOTTA LEAD
OH YEAH THE FIRST ONE OUT IS ME
WE DO WHAT WE WANT

Feedback and Distortion

I CANNOT THINK
I CANNOT SPEAK
WHEN I GET BACK ON HOME FROM WORKING A WEEK
I PLUG IT IN
I COUNT TO TEN
I PUSH IT UP ANOTHER NOTCH FROM IT THEN
FEEDBACK AND DISTORTION
FEEDBACK BREAKING UP
FEEDBACK AND DISTORTION
DON’T YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STAR
EVERYBODY PLAY GUITAR
WHO MAKES THE RULES
WHO TAKES OFFENSE
WHO DROPS A BOMB ON ME
AND TELLS ME CONFESS
DON’T MAKE A SOUND
UNLESS YOU’RE WISE
DON’T BE A FOOL FOR THOSE
WHO WEAR A DISGUISE
FEEDBACK AND DISTORTION
FEEDBACK BREAKING UP
FEEDBACK AND DISTORTION
DON’T YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STAR
EVERYBODY PLAY GUITAR
PLUG IT IN
COUNT TO TEN
PUSH IT UP ANOTHER NOTCH FROM IT THEN
FEEDBACK
FEEDBACK
FEEDBACK
FEEDBACK

LET EM KNOW WHO YOU ARE

PLAY GUITAR

Risking My Life

Written By: Curtis Don Vito

WALKING THE STREET WITH A HEAD FULL OF SONG
MOVING AROUND LIKE I CAN’T DO NO WRONG
LIONS AND CHEETAHS AND TIGERS AND BEARS
WE NEVER STOP LIVING LIFE ON A DARE
RISKING MY LIFE I’M DYING TO LIVE
RISK IT, RISK IT
RISKING MY LIFE I’M DYING TO LIVE
RISK IT, RISK IT
AWW - NO SLOW RIDE FOR ME
AWW - IT’S MY MASTERPIECE
I’M NOT GOING HOME

DON’T WORRY ME AND IT DON’T BRING ME DOWN
SOME OF YOU HOPE TO WATCH ME BURN TO THE GROUND
CAMERAS ROLLING ITS LIFE ON THE STAGE
29 FRAMES ARE BUSTING OUT OF A CAGE
RISKING MY LIFE I’M DYING TO LIVE
RISK IT, RISK IT
RISKING MY LIFE I’M DYING TO LIVE
RISK IT, RISK IT
AWW - NO SLOW RIDE FOR ME
AWW - IT’S MY MASTERPIECE
I’M NOT GOING HOME

DON’T SLOW ME DOWN
SPREAD THE WORD AROUND
THERE’S A RISK INDEED
WE’RE LIVING LIFE AT SPEED

Knock It Out Of The Park

Written By: Curtis Don Vito

SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UNSAID
BETTER COMING STRAIGHT FROM THE ARM
GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT
CAUSE YOU GOT IT TO GIVE
GO ON OUT AND WHIP UP A STORM
OH WISH YOU COULD SEE YOUR FACE
YOU GOT THE SPARK
SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UN DEAD
WHATEVER GETS YOU BACK TO THE PARK
OH JUST SWING AWAY
DON’T TAKE THE STRIKE
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO
GO ON
KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK
SOME TIMES THEY GET YOU RIGHT IN THE HEAD
THEN THEY GET YOU RIGHT WITH THE BALL
YOU AIN’T JUST PUSSYFOOTING AROUND
GO AND STICK IT RIGHT IN THE HOLE
OH CAN YOU SEE THEIR FACE
LOOK EM RIGHT IN THE EYE
THIS TIME GIVE IT ALL THAT YOU GOT
GET IT RIGHT ON INTO THE CROWD
OH JUST SWING AWAY
DON’T TAKE THE STRIKE
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO
GO ON
KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK
