Crash Midnight is a guitar driven, five-piece, Rock n' Roll band out of Boston. Their energetic live show exposes their 70's punk roots with a classic hard-rock delivery.

Biography

After a late night filled with shots of 151, Bo (bass) was speeding home. He lost consciousness and awoke to a face full of airbag and his car wrapped around a telephone pole. He called Shaun (lead vocals), not to pull him out of the heap, but to tell him that he’d found the perfect name for the band they would form: a rock n' roll trainwreck called Crash Midnight. They quickly recruited lead guitarist, a veteran of the Columbus, Ohio punk rock scene, Alex Donaldson and rhythm guitarist, out of Philly, rocker Matt Monroe. These two would form the raw blues heart and soul of Crash Midnight, exploding with unbridled rock riffs. They strove to infuse the modern-rock music scene with the genuine punk attitude and credibility it sorely lacks. Boston native Tony Blaze was brought on board to lay down the drum grooves and provide the rock-hard ledge for Shaun’s vocals to leap off.

In the span of just a year, Crash Midnight has toured the Northeast and Mid-West, building a fan base of over 50,000 plus. This caught the attention of Producer/Engineer, Paul Santo (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton) which led to the band signing a production deal with him in the spring of 2006. The band's second EP, the Paul Santo produced "Suicide Tattoo" is slated for an September 2006 release. ** Crash Midnight has been nominated for a 2006 BMA (Boston Music Award) in the category "Most Outstanding Punk/Rock Band" in Boston!**

Lyrics

City Girl

Written By: Crash Midnight

Diamonds n’ lace with a smile on yer face
Broken angel in another disgrace
It was a sweet injection til the taste went sour
(Now yer) Just a child with a broken flower

California lady with the sweet dead eyes
Well ya know it’s no surprise
You're outta luck n yer outta time
A brown-haired beauty with a cocaine smile

Ow ain’t it just a shame
You ain’t got no one left to blame
After all yer just another
Pretty, pretty city girl . . . it’s all too insane

Got a motor n yer fit ta ride
But ya know there’ll be no sleep tonight
Bedroom bruised lovin like a machine
Givin’ a performance on yer satin sheets

California lady with the sweet dead eyes
Darlin' it’s no surprise
Outta love n yer outta lines
N there's no one left to hear you cry

Chorus

Solo

Bucket a’ dreams in a night full a’ screems
Down on yer knees cumin apart at the seems
You're outta luck, yer outta time
Just a brown haired beauty with a cocaine smile

Chorus

Suicide Tattoo

Written By: Crash Midnight

This ‘ol world it can bring ya down
Make ya lose yer head
You're fadin’ fast there’s no one around
Yer standin on the edge

Ya got a one way ticket
N there’s no way down tonight

Suicide tattoo on yer back
Lookin like a side-swipe heart attack
Suicide tattoo runnin down your spine
Suicide tattoo on you mind
Yer nothing new, hunny that’s alright
Maybe you could come with me tonight
Yeah tonight ow . . . ah

Ya run for cover when the shit starts flyin
Sometimes you jus’ can’t tell
Been actin’ funny hunny I ain’t smilin’
Guess it’s just as well

We got a one-way ticket
‘n there’s no way down tonight

Suicide tattoo on yer back
Lookin like a side-swipe heart attack
Suicide tattoo runnin down your spine
Suicide tattoo on you mind
Yer nothing new, hunny that’s alright
Maybe you could come with me tonight

You ain’t the only one I ever had
Jus’ try n give me something that I haven’t had yet
N maybe hunny, you’ll be mine tonight . . . night . . . you’ll be mine tonight!

Suicide tattoo on yer back
Lookin like a side-swipe heart attack
Suicide tattoo runnin down your spine
Suicide tattoo on you mind
Yer nothing new, hunny that’s alright
Maybe you could come with me tonight

(Suicide Tattoo)
Suicide
(Suicide Tattoo)
Hunny suici-ide
(Suicide Tattoo)
Ow suicide

Made For The Money

Written By: Crash Midnight

Got yer roses ‘n yer diet coke
You got so much class
Ya make the scene, it’s all a show
Been livin’ much too fast

Over the edge, hunny you been blind
You got your luxuries
But ev’ry night it’s just the same ‘ol lines
Ya chase your shots with seed

Oh . . . no, no noo

Well you’re back in town
N’ ya been around
You ride the line
Darlin’ you was made for the money
N’ yer workin overtime

Out to make, hunny I seen you
A Hollywood tease
Outta place ‘n yer self abused
Jus’ doin what you please

na-no no . . . no, no

(Chorus)

hunny, look the fuck out!

(Solo)

No no no

(Chorus)
