BandRockAlternative

The distance between spaces is not one we know It looks like so little, yet much further to go So is passionate love but a feeling of mind? Not true in the physical, as if I am blind? Yes, I can touch you but it can't be proven The sensation you feel is just an illusion

Biography

To sum up the band Seventh Day Religion in one word would be really hard. But the closest the band has ever gotten to it would be the word “Dynamic”. Most hard/alternative rock bands don’t put much emphasis on that in their music. Seventh Day Religion made it a priority. They take the hard rock nature that influenced them from the early days of Ozzy to the new days of Saliva, and incorporated it into something that is not only abrasive, but melodic. Every song this band writes tells a story that is meant for someone in their audience, and their fans appreciate it with their response to not only the album, but the live performances. Nothing Is ever written just to fill up time. Lots of thought goes into both, the music you hear and the lyrics you read. The sound you hear comes for the five members brought together to make it. Ironically, they all come from different backgrounds and have a deviation of music they enjoy listening to themselves. Mike Abercrombie was the first lead guitarist to join the band. He is from Laurel, Mississippi. Mike was born with a pacifier in his mouth and a guitar in his hand. His gift to play shows up every time he plugs in. The world of experience that he brings to the band as a writer and musician takes Seventh Day Religion beyond the boundaries that most bands cant cross due to the lack of talent. There is no such thing with this guy. He will rock your head off one minute and make you cry with sweet lead music that brings you back to when you were hurt the most. Robbie Black is the drummer and glue for the band, as most drummers are. He lives in Taylorsville, Ms, and host all the practices for band at the county-renown location called “The Shed”. Robbie has the quick feet and hands of a metal drummer, but he understands that the song is what is important. He has the spirit of a teenager and drive of a real rock and roller. He is a fan of every kind of music and if you hang out with him very long, he will make sure you get to listen to it all. Robbie calls it, messing with your mind. If Abercrombie was born with a guitar in his hand, then Rob was probably there hitting him in the head with drum sticks. The second guitarist added to the band was Derek Barney. “Dirty D” is also from Laurel, Ms, and was discovered by Abercrombie. Derek is a phenomenal young talent. His favorite type of music is the really hard stuff that isn’t very radio friendly but seems to be moving rapidly along the underground. His spirit and ability's give the band a raw and untamed sound that mixes well with Abercrombies polished performance. Fans, young and old alike, can really hear something special when these guys start rocking together. The bass guitarist for Seventh Day Religion is Mike Cook. Cook grew up in Mize, Mississippi. He was a standout athlete, turned musician and excelled at both. Only one way to describe Cook and that is “incredible”. If you don’t think a bass player can make a band, you haven't heard this guy play. There is nothing he cant take on and is limitless with where he will take you. Cooks way into the band came via Robbie. They had played together in a previous band years before and developed a lot of respect for one another. He is a great song writer and brings an alternative influence to the guys in the band. When all four of these musicians crank up, you know you are at a Seventh Day Religion Concert. The final piece to the puzzle is the vocalist, John Marc Bailey. He was born and raised in Raleigh, Ms. His introduction to Robbie came as a chance meeting set up by a mutual friend. After jamming together one time, they knew they had something special. John Marc comes from a christian music background, where everything you ever write is meant to touch your life. He brings those same ideas over to the secular world when writing lyrics for this band. A lot has changed since performing at five years of age with his brothers. But, the love for the music and the performance thereof hasn’t. He is also the pianist in the band. This just adds another tool for the band to use to reach an even bigger audience. JMarc’s love for the alternative music world, mixed with sweetness of Abercrombie, the hardness of Derek, the drive of Robbie, and the mind-blowing licks of Mike Cook….make the sound that you will hear at every Seventh Day Religion concert and on every album. These are the original five that make up this band. They all come from different places and different faces. But if they were all the same, the music would be bland and sound like everyone else. They have spent months preparing for what is about to happen. Why don’t you come with them?

Lyrics

Burn It Down

Written By: 7DR

Um huh yeah yeah it’s another lonely drive
It’s been a long hard day & my eyes are getting tired
Let me see what I got in here that I can listen to
That yellow line is getting close so it’s gotta move

And what I’m wanting to hear
And what I’m dying for
I’ll make it perfectly clear
I wanna rock some more

Those southern boys can rock
It’s not the way they talk
They come from miles around
To watch them burn it down

Saliva, yeah, that’s what I need
A little lack luster or some of your disease
Or maybe a little of 3 Doors Down
The boys from the coast they know how to burn it down
Or maybe, a little old school rock
Lynard Skynard or a little ZZ Top
Wait a minute, I got a little something new,
Seventh Day Religion
We’ll burn it down for you

And what I’m wanting to hear
And what I’m dying for
I’ll make it perfectly clear
We’re gonna rock some more

Those southern boys can rock
It’s not the way they talk
They come from miles around
To watch them burn it down

And what I’m wanting to hear
And what I’m wanting to hear
We’re gonna rock some more

Those southern boys can rock
It’s not the way they talk
They come from miles around
To watch us burn it down

End Of The World

Written By: 7DR

You chained my feet & put out my eyes…I never need them
You took my tongue now take your lies…and keep believing them.

I feel alive
I feel alive
What do you want me to say
You never needed it.

I carry scars from things I’ve seen…you never wanted it
My vision is written with hands set free…you keep changing it.

I feel alive
I feel alive
What do you want me to say
You never needed it.

If you could see what’s on my mind
You would turn your face & hide
Safer places you’ll not find
You are running out of time.

You don’t want, You don’t want, You don’t want to know
You don’t want, You don’t want, You don’t want to know
You don’t want, You don’t want, You don’t want to know

What do you want me to say
You never needed it
We live for dying this way
It’s the end of the world.

I feel alive, it’s the end of the world
I feel alive, it’s the end of the world.

Lonely Side Of Love

Written By: 7DR

I’ve been walking the streets
Trying to fill this hole in my heart
Everyone I meet
Tells me I’m still so torn apart.

Well it must have been something you said
Cause I can’t get you outta my mind
Was it something that I never did
Cause your loves getting so hard to find.

Well you gave me your reason
How did you do this to me?

Well it must have been something you said
Cause I can’t get you outta my mind
Was it something that I never did
Cause your loves getting so hard to find.

Got this feeling that I can’t bare
Gotta find somebody who cares
Don’t think I can put up a fight
Gotta make it through another lonely night.

Back To You

Written By: 7DR

I don’t see the rain shining
I don’t feel the sun pouring down
I don’t hear the birds singing no more
Since I don’t have you around

Another day & it’s not easy
I wonder if I’ll make it through
I try so hard to live without it
But all I do is think of you; all I do is think of you

I can’t go on living a day without you here
And the nights are lonely too
If there’s a way someone can bring you back to me
Then I’ll come back to you.

This empy world is full of sorrow
That leaves you standing there alone
Friends may come & they deceive you
Makes you wonder what went wrong; Cause
I’m still wondering what went wrong.

I can’t go on living a day without you here
And the nights are lonely too
If there’s a way someone can bring you back to me
Then I’ll come back to you.

I can’t go on without you.

Snake Charmer

Written By: 7DR

Can you feel, can you feel the danger
Because of all the people here who died
Can you feel, can you feel our anger
Because of all the crazy things you tried.

Where will you run when it’s over
After we’ve torn your world apart
You cannot hide from the cobra
You should have known it right from the start.

In the night we can hear your laughter
Coming from the hole you crawled to
Soon we will be hearing you screaming
Because you know we’re coming after you

Where will you run when it’s over
After we’ve torn your world apart
You cannot hide from the cobra
You should have known it right from the start.

Where will you run when it’s over
After we’ve torn your world apart
You cannot hide from the cobra
You should have known it right from the start.

Breaking Me

Written By: 7DR

Darkness surrounds me
I can’t tell if I’m even awake
Things that I’m seeing
Make me wanna scream & shake.

But I’m only dreaming
That wasn’t you I saw walking away
It’s making me crazy
Cause all of these dreams are breaking me, yes they’re breaking me, yeah.

Don’t know if I’m breathing
I feel something try to reach for me
I start screaming
I can’t seem to break free.

But I’m only dreaming
That wasn’t you I saw walking away
It’s making me crazy
Cause all of these dreams are breaking me, yes they’re breaking me, yeah.

The nights last forever
The days seems to come & disappear
But I won’t surrender
And I won’t give into all this fear.

But I’m only dreaming
That wasn’t you I saw walking away
It’s making me crazy
Cause all of these dreams are breaking me, yes they’re breaking me, yeah.

I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming
Breaking me
I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming
