Biography

The music created by exitseekers is considered 'Rock Surprise'. "...like Queens of the Stone Age verses Death From Above 1979..."

Because they couldn't pool themselves into a category, they created their own sub-genre. Their originality demands the attention of anyone and everyone within earshot. The music is heard, seen and felt. Therefore if you hear it, you must see it...and you will feel it.

"Like a wooly mammoth stuck in the tar pits. exitseekers reckless abandon can't be ignored." Ruben Huizenga (Shogun Labs, Central Nervous System)

Most of exitseekers time is spent writing and rehearsing in an old munitions factory in a room full of lamps and tables and musical instruments. They draw their energy from this dimly lit den like haven of classy ambiance. This is who they are.

This serene atmosphere has an alter ego, which is their performance. exitseekers energetic live show is intense to the point of pure conviction. The symphony of sound that emits from these two people is often mistaken for a full orchestra. Equipped with one drum kit and two guitar amplifiers, they are prepared to bring everything they have and leave it all on the stage.

This is the art of escape. The appreciation of the privilege to play music is married with the dedication to being themselves.

What you hear, see and feel is who they are. Their belief...you can't screw up being yourself.

Lyrics

Green Glasses

Written By: Miguel Anciaes/Chris Reed

more than you wanted
we got beats that break and shake
make your mind numb
we peak
when we get redemption
seems that justice and reason
are always on the run

they don't listen
they just wait to speak
then they join the liars, thugs
and soul theft thieves
they don't listen
they just wait to speak
they don't listen
cause they want to be
better than you and I
they believe
they're king shits
of hypocracy

if you don't know
then shut your mouth
you've been livin' with your glasses on
we got the truth ????????????
and i've been told

more than you asked for
we got beats that break and shake
make your mind numb...dumb
we peak, when we get redemption
seems justice and reason are always on the run
always on the run

and if you don't know
then shut your mouth
if you don't know
then shut your mouth

Do Your Function

Written By: Miguel Anciaes/Chris Reed

i'll do the pushing
i'll do the punching
what's your congestion
keeping you from your function
when you come
you come all sold out
never ever reason to doubt
why you're here, you want to be
all you wanna be
c'mon do your function
right away
got to do your function
you might as well, not to hard to tell

when you do your function
you do your function
ya, you do your function baby
oh you do your function
ya! do your function

do your function
let it all hang out
i'll be the one that masturbates in the parking lot
i'm gettin' my thrills
i'm gettin' my fix
do your function baby
just like this

when you do your function
yea do your function
ya, you do your function baby
oh you do your function
ya! do your function

Coping Mechanism

Written By: Miguel Anciaes/Chris Reed

held, hypnotized
latex daze, from the look in your eyes
you know that there's so much for you to live
return then receive
to you this gift
then we do it again

now through the art of release
i guess this is alive
like minded souls
through discussions we rise
mask the insane
then we act out in pain
let's do it again

so we blame it on the drugs
blame it on the rain
blame it on every little thing
blame it on the cocaine that falls in a fluff
blame it on everyone i love
blame it on the man
blame it on each other
you blame your father
and i'll blame another
we'll blame it on the sad, sad state of afairs
blame it on me
man i don't care

try once again
for my family and friends
to find love for my shattered mind
lately i'm falling
feels like no one knows me
or cares at all

why can't you see
i'm a hell of a man
broken and twisted
this much i can tell you
if i survive
i will return
to do it again

so we blame it on the drugs
blame it on the rain
blame it on every little thing
blame it on the cocaine that falls in a fluff
blame it on everyone i love
blame it on the man
blame it on each other
you blame your father
and i'll blame another
we'll blame it on the sad, sad state of afairs
blame it on me
man i don't care

we gonna blame it on the drugs
we gonna blame it on the drugs
yeah yeah
