7k are Orange County rockers on a mission to rescue lost suburbanites from the knick knacks and apparel that distract them from living their true lives. Is their infectious, substantial rock the soundtrack to salvation? Only their brand new 2-disc EP/DVD release will reveal the truth.

Biography

7k’s powerful, infectious alternative rock “runs the gamut from mid-90’s alternative balladry to full-blown arena-sized assaults.”* The Orange County foursome have rocked audiences from San Francisco to San Diego to Phoenix & Las Vegas with adrenalized performances of their infectious, substantial rock songs. Their first two EP’s, produced by Dean Dinning of Toad the Wet Sprocket, garnered interstate radio airplay, growing their fan base By 2005, 7k had developed a strong regional fan base and laid claim to a strong sonic identity with their debut full-length album, through the windshield. With their latest 2-disc EP/DVD release, knick knacks and apparel, the band is reborn, with a mission: to rescue lost suburbanites from the mundane trappings of life and inspire them to pursue the unlived lives within them

Lyrics

make it up

Written By: Jeff Garvin

(c) 2006

make it out of nothing
make it out of air
make it out of spittle
or despair

make it from a killing
make it from a joke
make it till you're empty
till you choke

make it up
put it out
that is what
this is about

make it out of anger
make it out of spite
make it out of pity
or lost fights

make it out of clever
make it out need
make it out of hunger
or from greed

make it up
put it out
that is what
this is about

when you're too old
no one will care the path was harrowing
the gap between i will and didn't
is fucking narrowing
the clock is ticking
inflicting with every second gone
you could have had it
instead of listening to this song

make it up
put it out

suburban desperado

Written By: Jeff Garvin

(c) 2006

seems that he survived it
little jimmy vickers
wife and kids and fence white
blood's a little thicker

sold the dream for safety
couldn't quench the fire
who is gonna pay now
price is getting higher

"to thine own self be true":
his long-forsaken motto
payback's a bitch
for the suburban desperado

standing over her face
flashing back to high school
staring down a barrel
standing in his own pool

is she gonna get it?
kitty wants attention
subtle satisfaction
terrifying tension

"to thine own self be true":
his long-forsaken motto
payback's a bitch
for the suburban desperado

seems that he survived it
little jimmy vickers
what's he gonna do now?
plot is getting thicker

is he gonna get it?
jimmy wants attention
subtle satisfaction
terrifying tension

five in the cylinder and
one in the barrel
about to spatter
all these knick-knacks and apparel
if you could take back
all the things you'd left undone
look at her now:
would she really be the one?

remember me

Written By: Jeff Garvin

you don't know my name
but i'm changing you already
reigniting flame
where you thought the cold was steady
suicide songwriting
acts of desperation
sing with me in this relentless occupation

remember me
for this outpour
remember me
what else am i good for?
remember me
and forget her

you can't see my face
but my voice is penetration
quickening your pace
and dissolving hesitation
suicide songwriting
acts of desperation
sing with me in this relentless occupation

remember me
for this outpour
remember me
what else am i good for?
remember me
and forget her

it burns when it starts
then it breaks your heart
