Biography

Fifty Habit is a creation born from love of music and need for release.

The Major separation between Fifty Habit and other upcoming groups is HEART. When you listen to the lyrics you will realize that this is not pre-pubescent whining about high school heartache or parents who just don't understand. What you will hear is an emotional read on real issues like war, drug addiction, religion and poverty.

Avery possesses a unique mind-grabbing tone in his voice, with a stong sense of purpose and urgency. Jimmy uses his drums as more of a weapon than an instrument and beats you in the head with ground-pounding fills accentuating every word and every note with a beat that begs to be
felt. JD, a veteran of the rock scene and music business, completes the equation by rounding out the band's sound with articulate, punchy, and
driving bass lines making Fifty Habit the three-piece powerhouse they are.

Avery, 23, draws on his past while writing music. He chose the dark path of addiction and self deprecation, spiraling him into a world of jails and rehabs lingering on depression and angst. He has been sober now for two years and he uses music as a way to bury the past and come to terms with life. His influences include Tool, Alice in Chains, a Perfect Circle, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Seether and Chevelle, among others.

Jimmy's drumming has defined the sound of Fifty Habit much the same way a hit single would...people remember it. Jimmy's drums command feet to tap and heads to bop. Jimmy, 17, has been playing the drums for many years and
has set the bar for up and coming rock drummers. His influences include Neil Peart, John Bonham, Buddy Rich, Mike Portnoy, Danny Carrey, and
many more.

JD is a veteran of the rock world who stepped in when Fifty Habit lost it's original bassist. JD is on loan to Fifty Habit right now from their good friends, Less The Wiser. He produced the band's first CD, Two Year Flu, and is handling production duties on their next CD, due out in late Spring 2007.

Lyrics

Two Year Flu

Written By: Avery Lazarus

I’m feeling sick and twisted
I need to pacify my pain
I feel this urge within me
I feel it coming back again

Up atop my mountain
Clarify my minds eye more
Can you reel me in please
Pull me back from deaths front door

The tides are pushing harder; I think it’s pulling me back down
Brace for impact, you should hold on tight now

The clouds are getting clear now
What’s beyond I do not know
It’s a curious feeling
Listen closely

The tides are pushing harder; I think it’s pulling me back down
Brace for impact, you should hold on tight now

Something’s wrong here
Please help me
Something’s wrong here

The clouds are getting clear now
What’s beyond I do not know
It’s a curious notion
Listen closely

The tides are pushing harder; I think it’s pulling me back down
Brace for impact, you should hold on tight now
The tides are pushing harder; I think it’s pulling me back down
Brace for impact, you should hold on tight now

Prae

Written By: Avery Lazarus

I wonder why
Why I lie awake at night
I close my eyes
So I can take a look inside

Bent back on the middle looking outside
I’m alive but man I’m a little in the edge
Strapped down settled in for the long ride
There is nothing left like it’s never been said

There is something out there that is true
Let me stand there let me stand in you

It’s all right when I start to pray
That’s when everything’s ok
But I’m praying to a spaceman

I wish tonight
That I might find some piece of mind
I feel all right
You know I might not be so blind

Bent back on the middle looking outside
I’m alive but man I’m a little in the edge
Strapped down settled in for the long ride
There is nothing left like it’s never been said

There is something out there that is true
Let me stand there let me stand in you

It’s all right when I start to pray
That’s when everything’s ok
But I’m praying to a spaceman

When I think if good and evil I get lost inside the shade
When I try to turn those lights on don’t run or be afraid
Theres a secret hiding somewhere, theres an answer in your soul
Face life, face your demons, drop the needle take control

Even after all our mistakes, we are human standing here
Life is only what you make it, life is love and life is fear
Fear is ugly and so lovely it drags down and makes you whole
Stop running stop pretending, drop the needle take control

This unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all
That unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all

I got a glimpse of what is out there, so fuck them and fuck you too
I’ll pave my way without you, wallow in your black and blue
There seems to be a reason, life is dark and oh so cold
I think the real solution is drop the needle take control

This unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all
That unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all

This unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all
That unfamiliar thing, that foreign memory
Is pushing me to move on top of it all
