August Redemption

August Redemption

 Cairns, Queensland, AUS
BandAlternativeRock

Very similar to old school hard rock like AC/DC or Thin Lizzy. Hard hitting and easy to relate to.

Biography

Formed in late 2006, August Redemption have been working hard to get their name and music out. Originally starting as a 3 piece band with Luke on the drums and Dave taking care of both guitar and vocal duties. Dave and Luke started writing material immediately as well as playing some of their favourite songs. The band went through many lineup changes until they settled on a lineup in mid-2008, which saw Luke take over rhythm guitar duties, Daz taking over drums, Gav handling bass and introducing Glenn on lead guitar. Dave stuck with vocals.

Having members of all different backgrounds and influences has really defined August Redemption's sound. The sound itself is an old school hard rock sound really driving on the blues influence with almost metallic deliverance and tightness. The live shows have been described as "a fascinating, energetic performance with an extremely charismatic frontman".

August Redemption are currently unsigned but are still hard at work to put Cairns out there and show what they can do. Only the future can tell what is in it for these boys.

Lyrics

Sunday Morning

Written By: Dave Randle

It's sunday morning
The coffee's looking good
I wanna have a drink
A strong one if I could

Been having late nights around
Living life again
I wanna make it
Till next weekend
To do it again

Sunday
And I feel alright
Sunday
I'm still alive

It's now 12pm
And I have no friends
To get me something sweet to drink
Here we go again

I'm feeling dizzy
Really weak at the knees
Someone hold me up
Someone hold me please

Sunday
And I feel alright
Sunday
I'm still alive
Sunday
Another day has passed
Sunday
I'm really trashed

Sunday
And I feel alright
Sunday
I'm still alive
Sunday
Another day has passed
Sunday
I'm really trashed

It's sunday morning
The coffee's looking good
I wanna have a drink
And I know I should

I'm feeling dizzy
Really weak at the knees
Someone hold me up
Someone hold me please

Sunday
And I feel alright
Sunday
I'm still alive
Sunday
Another day has passed
Sunday
I'm really trashed

My Simple Life

Written By: Dave Randle

I see your name on a sign
I see the people upside down
My simple life
My simple life

I see the world on a scale
From one to ten it's like a nail
Inside my life
My simple life

Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
To my place
Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
For the chase

I think I need to leave right now
There's a nail on the scale upside down
My simple life
My simple life

I've seen your name on a sign
I've seen the people upside down
My simple life
My simple life

Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
To my place
Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
For the chase

Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
To my place
Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
For the chase

I see your name on a sign
I see the people upside down
My simple life
My simple life

I see the world on a scale
From one to ten it's like a nail
Inside my life
My simple life

Why don't you step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
For the chase
You're welcome to step
Beside my side again
Why don't you come back
For the chase

Secrets

Written By: Dave Randle

I, can see my life is almost over
And I, see the tables turning over
And I, cannot feel the pain inside
I, walk the footpath on my own

And I, have a secret in my hands
And I, have a secret you don't understand

And I, walk this earth as a soldier
And I, put my hands upon your shoulder
And I, realise I'm all alone
And I, walk the footpath on my own

And I, have a secret in my hands
And I, have a secret you don't understand
I, feel like I'm all alone
I, walk the footpath on my own

I, have a secret in my hands
I, have a secret you don't understand
And I, feel like I'm all alone
And I, have a secret of my own

I, see my life is almost over
And I, watch that tables turning over
And I, realise I'm all alone
And I, walk the footpath on my own

And I, have a secret you don't understand
And I, have a secret there's no plan
And I, feel like I'm all alone
And I, have a secret of my own
