Biography

Austin Texas best kept secret. Backsliders regressing into sin. Good men trying to find their way back to grace through powerful rythms and soul-baring vocals. Foo Fighters, Jane's Addiction, Toadies and Pixies have all had a hand in molding this band into what it is today.
Steve Zermeno founded Backsider Music two years ago in Austin Texas. Since then, Jake Sherard (lead guitar), Drew Davis (bass) and Brian Watkins (drums) have added their superior talents to form a riveting modern rock group. Traveling through Texas, Backslider Music has captivated crowds all over the south with their dynamic, high energy live shows. Additionally being featured on radio stations, such as KLBJ Austin and KANM Texas A&M Radio College Station.
Their debut release, Self Titled, takes the listener on an exploration of raw emotions. The band pushes boundaries in songs such as "You Can't See", "Preacher Boy" and "Dim the Lights".

Lyrics

You Can't See

Written By: Stephen Zermeno

I think I found my song again
It played so long
Oh it played so wrong
I walked away and I felt no pain
Well so long
I’m counting on

Well stay clear from me
I won’t wait for nobody
I’m all out of sympathy
You can’t hit what you can’t see

I won’t be back to see you again
I’m falling out
Oh I’m falling out
I look at her and feel the same
I feel no pain
I feel the same

Well stay clear from me
I won’t wait for nobody
I’m all out of sympathy
You can’t hit what you can’t see

Don’t count me out
And I see we are all the same

I think I found my song again
It played so long
Oh it played so wrong
I walked away and I felt no pain
Well so long
I’m counting on

Well stay clear from me
I won’t wait for nobody
I’m all out of sympathy
You can’t hit what you can’t see

Dim the Lights

Written By: Stephen Zermeno

Dim the lights she said
As she made her way over to
My side of the bed
I was shaking

I remember she was holding my hand
As she whispers
Are you shaking

I can't hold you
Like the way that you want me to
Can I hold you
And see this thing thru

Dim the lights she said
As she made her way over to
My side and be led
To Starvation
I remember she was holding my head
As she whispers
What you thinking

I can't hold you
Like the way that you want me to
Can I hold you
And see this thing thru

Dim the lights she said
As she made her way over to
My side of the bed
I was shaking

I remember she was holding my hand
As she whispers
Are you shaking
I was shaking
Are you shaking?...
