Biography

Chair Warriors formed in 2009 and has been an increasingly active member in the Montreal indie music scene ever since. Chair Warriors recorded their debut EP "A Thousand Words" over fall/winter 2011 with renowned engineer, Glen Robinson.

The band followed up with 2 songs ("Saviours" & "Liars") in the fall of 2013/winter 2014, both of which have videos online.

Singer/Keyboardist, Brandon Mignacca, competed in this year’s LA VOIX 5 (The Voice) and successfully made it to the quarter-finals. He was called back for both the LIVE semi-final and final episodes which aired on TVA, performing two group songs accompanying last year’s winner, Stephanie St.Jean, as well as notable Quebec folk-rock duo, 2Freres.

Chair Warriors have opened up for notable acts “I Mother Earth” and “The Joy Formidable” in both Montreal and Quebec City. Will be opening for Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) on Nov 25 in Montreal at L’Astral.

The group are winners of Global TV's “Can Your School Rock?” 2010, and are repeat winners of Landmark Events Showcase competitions in Montreal.

The band has played over 100 shows in and around their hometown of Montreal as well as in Quebec City, Ottawa and has also performed at both the Mod Club and Opera House in Toronto.

Chair Warriors just released a new 7-song EP entitled “Dawn of Edo” on September 22, 2017.

Lyrics

Lifeline

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

Lifting up my face to see you, my moon
I cannot be a God
If you’re up there too soon, my moon
I cannot be a God
If you’re up there too soon, my moon

Why do you, why do you
Flirt with your god I
Control you control you
And I think I’m being quite sensible right now

Lifting up my face to see you, my moon
I cannot be a god
If you’re up there too soon, my moon

Why do you, why do you
Flirt with your god I
Control you control you
And I think I’m being quite sensible right now

Laughing, crying, living, dying
World is set in motion for the simple wanting of notion
Laughing crying living dyeing
All I want is for you to cry for me

Laughing crying living dying, X4

Lifting up my face to see you, my moon
I cannot be a god
If you’re up there too soon, my moon
Why do you, why do you
Flirt with your god I
Control you, control you
And I think I’m being quite…
Why do you, why do you
Flirt with your god I
Control you, control you
And I think I’m being quite sensible right now

Pill

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

Do you feel what I feel?
Vibrations so unreal
Do you see what I see?
Close your eyes I guarantee
Misery falls apart
Considered state of the art
The consequence is emotion will come from the heart
Do you feel what I become?
Or am I just illusion?
Do you love everything?
Or does everything love you
Godspeed beyond the eye
Why don’t you give it a try?
Don’t worry it’s not gonna die

Can you feel it?
The pleasure course your veins
See the spirit
On a course for no such shame

Do you taste what I taste?
Or is it blocking your system
The pill disintegrates
It is all part of the mission
Godspeed beyond the mind
You lose your track of time
Don’t worry it’s not gonna die

Can you feel it?
The pleasure course your veins
See the spirit
On a course for no such shame

Well I know
The pleasure course your veins
Yes I know
The pleasure course your veins

Do you feel what I feel?
Vibrations so unreal
Do you see what I see?
Close your eyes I guarantee
Do you taste what I taste?
Or is it blocking your system
Can you be who I am or am I too much for you
Do you feel what I feel?
Vibrations so unreal
Do you see what I see?
Close your eyes I guarantee
Do you taste what I taste?
Or is it blocking your system
Can you be who I am or am I too much for you

Can you feel it?
The pleasure course your veins
See the spirit
On a course for no such shame
Do you feel what I feel?
Vibrations so unreal
Do you see what I see?
Close your eyes I guarantee
Do you taste what I taste?
Or is it blocking your system
Can you be who I am
O r am I too much for you
Or am I too much for you
You know I’m too much for you
Oh yes I am too much for you

Silent Child

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

And we’re all left in empty space
Eventually we disintegrate
Hold a thought and you’ll find a way home
And we all live with hands in front of our eyes
And we all live in the shadows of our lives

Can you feel the world pressure you?
To become what you wouldn’t do
With your words filled in water flow
Your screams cannot be heard
Break the barrier and your silence will sent the word

In time we’ll be out of here
Loose our love, our hate,
Our joy, our fear,
But until then we are only human
You’re the only one with your hands up in the sky
As we all live in the shadows of our lives

Can you feel the world pressure you?
To become what you wouldn’t do
With your words filled in water flow
Your screams cannot be heard
Break the barrier and your silence will sent the word

You were lost you were so alone
And you fought for a better home
You were lost you were so alone
And the world won’t accept you but you won’t stop
No you won’t stop
No you won’t stop
No

Can you feel the world pressure you?
To become what you wouldn’t do
With your words filled in water flow
Your screams cannot be heard
Break the barrier
Can you feel the world pressure you?
To become what you wouldn’t do
With your words filled in water flow
Your screams cannot be heard
Break the barrier and your silence will sent the word

Lights Out

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

Broken inside
Try to search for release
In the air I can breathe
Nothing is quite like the place in my dreams
Let it set your release
If I found a treasure in your eyes
A remedy, a cure for me
If I found a place that I can hide
Sanctity, would you wait for me?

When the light’s out
We can see the universe
We can change stars
We will see it for what it's worth

Broken inside
Try to search for release
In the air I can breathe
Love isn't blind when your eyes cannot see
Learn to live and be free
If I found a treasure in your eyes
A remedy, a cure for me
If I found a place that I can hide
Sanctity, would you wait for me?

And I, want to save the world
You and I unleashed and unfurled

With the lights out we have seen the universe
We have changed stars
We have seen it for what it's worth
With the lights out we have seen the universe
We have changed stars
We now see it for what it's worth
When the light’s out

So Alive

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

So alive, so alive, so alive
Let your tears and your fears all aside
So let insanity rush, release the mind
So alive, so alive, so alive
It makes me wanna-

If only you could know that colours in the rain
Were only meant to show then slowly wash away
And our tears of gold only shining when
There is truth to be told to a bitter enemy

So alive, so alive, so alive
Let your tears and your fears all aside
So let insanity rush, release the mind
So alive, so alive, so alive
It makes me wanna fly

If only you could know
We’re only meant to show
All our tears of gold
When there’s truth to be told

Primal

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

Never really knew what I wanted
Until I saw her again
Now I leave the keys in the pocket
It’s hard to love from within
But if I could see her love from the inside

Never really fought for a woman
Until I saw her ahead
Of all the other lovers that I would've
Had beside me instead
But if I could see her love from the inside out
Then I will never let it end

Hey, Hey
I wanna love you in another way
Hey maybe we could lose ourselves tonight and play
Hey maybe we could

Never really knew what you wanted
Until I saw you again
Always leave the keys in your pocket
And keep the feeling within
But if you could see this love from the outside in
The primal love will never end

Hey, Hey
I wanna love you in another way
Hey maybe we could lose ourselves tonight and play
Hey maybe we could lose ourselves and find a way
Hey maybe we could

Liars

Written By: Brandon Mignacca

So here it is,
The future that you hoped for,
Finally exists within us.

And all we know,
The good will and the hope,
Of our own logic is held against us.

With the truth so far beyond our reach,
And the faintest grasp on memories,
Oh will we ever learn?

We are governed,
We are smothered,
Told the empty promises
By the liars.

Our time has stopped,
Suspended in a cage,
That we could only dream,
Of escaping.

Liars they sleep,
Upon their golden chair of opportunity,
Sneering scathingly.

With the truth so far beyond our reach,
And the faintest grasp on memories,
Oh will we ever learn?

We are governed,
We are smothered,
Told the empty promises
By the liars.
Struck down, murdered,
Black vale, were covered.
Told the empty promises,
By the liars.

Told the empty promises.

So here it is,
The future that you hoped for,
Finally exists within us.
Oh we will never burn.

We are governed,
We are smothered,
Told the empty promises
By the liars.
Struck down, murdered,
Black vale, were covered.
Told the empty promises,
Now we hold the future,
In our hands.
