Ever see a live band and go "Wow! Each one of these guys can really play?"...AND think..."Wow! These guys really have the songs too!?" That's AEPNIA, the original alt/hard/rock power trio that has the musicianship and imagination to carry them past their impressive hook-filled debut album.

Biography

AEPNIA (AP-nee-ah) is an alt/hard/rock and roll power trio consisting of three quarreling brothers who look nothing alike. Their tightly-arranged, hook-laden tunes are packed with clever overdriven riffs, effects-drenched atmospherics, head-bopping beats, and infectious melodies.

Hailing from San Diego, California, AEPNIA derives its name from a hybrid of the Greek and English meanings of apnea, and symbolizes the restlessness of ambition and determination, the dreams that keep us awake at night and distracted during the day.

But don't let the concept fool you, these guys ROCK!!! The three soulful hard rocking brothers (who truly look nothing alike) conjoin to output an enormous wall of sound, sweat, musicality, and mood. And crowds around San Diego have begun to take notice!

Formed in the summer of 2007, AEPNIA quickly hit the San Diego live scene with their passionate stage show on the strength of a garage demo (Brick By Brick, Canes, 710 Beach Club, Dream Street, Second Wind, Jumping Turtle).

AEPNIA's debut full-length self-produced album, tracked at Sushifish Recording, was released in Spring of 2009.

IN A PLACE WHERE THE LIGHT IS LOW
GOT MYSELF AND YOU BELOW
I FEEL YOU BURNING
I FEEL A YEARNING
IN A PLACE WHERE I DON'T KNOW
THESE THOUGHTS COULD OVERFLOW
 
SOME DAY I....HOPE TO FIND YOU
SOME DAY I....
 
THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR
THOUSAND TIMES A DAY
GOT YOU IN THE MOMENT
YOU AIN'T HERE TO STAY....I'LL BURN YOU
 
NOT A RACE BUT NOT TOO SLOW
MY MEMORY'S MUSCLES GLOW
I FEEL YOU BURNING
I FEEL A YEARNING
 
SOME DAY I....HOPE TO FIND YOU
SOME DAY I....
 
THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR
THOUSAND TIMES A DAY
GOT YOU IN THE MOMENT
YOU AIN'T HERE TO STAY....I'LL BURN YOU
 
FEELIN' LIKE A STRANGER
BUT YOU WON'T GO AWAY
WONDER IS A FEELIN'
THOUSAND TIMES A DAY
 
THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR
THOUSAND TIMES A DAY
GOT YOU IN THE MOMENT
YOU AIN'T HERE TO STAY....I'LL BURN YOU

Not The End

Written By: Teri Mitsiu

LIFE THAT WE’VE WON
ALWAYS NOT DONE
THEY ONLY SEE
REVISIONS OF ME
VISIONS DECEIVE
STILL LIFE IS NONE
AWAITING NOTHING
 
FACE TO FACE, PLACE TO PLACE, I RUN
WILL BE REPLACED, ALL BY THINGS TO COME
FACE TO FACE, PLACE TO PLACE, I RUN
WE’LL BE REPLACED, ALL BY THINGS TO COME
 
NOW THAT WE’VE WON
IN PLACE I’LL SOJOURN
SO PULL ME AWAY
MY YESTERDAY
IS NEW BLOOD’S OLD WAY
SEE THE LIFE I’VE KNOWN
FLEETING ENDING
 
FACE TO FACE, PLACE TO PLACE, I RUN
WILL BE REPLACED, ALL BY THINGS TO COME
FACE TO FACE, PLACE TO PLACE, I RUN
WE’LL BE DISPLACED, ALL BY THINGS TO COME

When I Wake

Written By: Teri Mitsiu

ANGER ME, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT
LIE TO ME, EH, YA THINK I AIN'T STRONG?
SUFFER ME, AND WE'LL BEAT A BROKEN DRUM
TEMPER ME, YEAH, YEAH
 
ALL THESE THINGS COMBINE TO HAUNT ME
PLEASE STAND BY, HELP ME
 
TAKE ME OVER
TAKE ME AWAY
LAY ME DOWN TONIGHT
SEE YOU WHEN I WAKE...WHEN I WAKE
 
RAMBLIN', I WILL SING ANOTHER SONG
STUMBLIN', FOREVER IS IT WRONG?
WOKE UP IN, A FINAL IMAGE TORN
SING FOR ME, YEAH, YEAH
 
ALL THESE THINGS COMBINE TO HAUNT ME
PLEASE STAND BY, HELP ME
 
TAKE ME OVER
TAKE ME AWAY
LAY ME DOWN TONIGHT
SEE YOU WHEN I WAKE...WHEN I WAKE

Idol

Written By: Teri Mitsiu

ON MY WAY, I CAN SEE, GONNA BE YOUR IDOL
SUDDENLY, INFINITY, IS BUT A LITTLE NUMBER
ALL WHO BELIEVE, YOU COME WITH ME, KNOW WELL THERE AIN'T NO IDLE
ECSTASY, IS FULL OF ME, OR TAKE YOUR DAILY MURDER
 
IN BETWEEN LIFE
WE PASS THE TIME
FORGET THE WAYS OF OLD
WE'VE GOT TO LIVE OUR LIFE NOW
 
I...PUSH, BUT THE WEIGHT IS IN ME
I...TOUCH, AND WITH EYES OF ENVY
I FIND, WHAT I NEED IS IN ME
WHY, WHY, HIDE IN SHADES AWAY?
 
SOW MY WAY, WITH NO DELAY, YEARS IN A MINUTE BUBBLE
INSIDE OF TIME, I BEND THE LINE, YOU FEEL THE SUN I'M TOWING
NO BEELZEBUB, NO LAZY DOVE, IT'S SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE
RIGHT DOWN THE LINE, I'M TAKIN' MINE, WHAT'S LEFT IS PRECIOUS LITTLE
 
IN BETWEEN LOVE
WE GO BLIND
WHAT IS THE DAY FOR?
IF YOU'RE UP ALL NIGHT NOW?
 
I...PUSH, BUT THE WEIGHT IS IN ME
I...TOUCH, AND WITH EYES OF ENVY
I FIND, WHAT I NEED IS IN ME
WHY, WHY, HIDE IN SHADES AWAY?
 
TO MY LEFT.....THERE'S NOTHIN' LEFT
TO MY RIGHT.....NOTHING'S RIGHT
TO MY LEFT.....THERE'S NOTHIN' LEFT
TO MY RIGHT.....ONLY TIME......
 
I...PUSH, BUT THE WEIGHT IS IN ME
I...TOUCH, AND WITH EYES OF ENVY
I FIND, WHAT I NEED IS IN ME
WHY, WHY, HIDE IN SHADES AWAY?

Brother

BROTHER
BROTHER
YEAH IT'S TRUE WE ARE JUST TWO
AND WORDS REMAIN, EVEN THE FEW
THAT THING YOU SAID
IS NOT FORGOTTEN
THAT THING YOU SAID...
 
IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?
I DON'T KNOW
I GAVE ALL I GOT
YOU SHOULD KNOW
 
BROTHER
BROTHER
DO YOU SEE JUST WHAT YOU DO?
BACK AND FORTH, IT JUST WON'T QUIT
THIS TIME AROUND I DO NOT HEAR THE FULL OF IT
BUT FROM WHERE THEY ARE THEY DO
 
YEAH, YEAH
YEAH, YEAH
 
IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?
I DON'T KNOW
I GAVE ALL I GOT
YOU SHOULD KNOW
 
WHO'S YOU'RE BROTHER?
WHO'S YOUR BROTHER? TALK TO ME NOW...
I'M NOT AFRAID OF THINGS WE SAID AND DO NOT DO NO MORE
ALL THESE THINGS WILL PASS AS THEY WILL
IT WILL PASS, IT WILL PASS, ALL I ASK, ALL I ASK
IS A SIMPLE THING, FROM US TO THEM
YOU WERE BLESSED, YOU WERE BLESSED, EVERY PATH WAS BLAZED
YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT, I COULDN'T SHOW IT
 
IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?
I DON'T KNOW
I GAVE ALL I GOT
YOU SHOULD KNOW

Beautiful Massacre

Written By: Teri Mitsiu

CONVERSATIONS WILL, LAST FOREVER
WE'LL PRAY THE MOTHER CAN, REACH HER CHILDREN
THE FATHER MOTIONS AND ALL EMOTION
SPILLS UNTO THE FLOOR
WISE MEN TURN SO COLD 



DOWN THE STAIRS IS WHERE BACKS ARE BROKEN 
THE CABLE'S CUT AND THE DEVIL'S WOKEN
WHAT WILL NEIGHBORS SAY, DID WE KNOW THEM?
FEW CAN EVER KNOW
ENTER A REAL LIFE SHOW

BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
BEAUTIFUL MASSACRE
