Biography

Freakhouse Bio

Freakhouse is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California consisting of lead vocalist and bassist Rob Escher, guitarist Matt Clark, and drummer Scott Freak. The group's latest release, Angels in Chemistry, will be released August 12, 2016, through 7Hard/Membran.

When the band set out to create the new album they wanted to make it their most focused and intense release to date. They decided not to use an outside producer and write and record as a three piece. "The core of this band has always been Matt, Scott and myself", says Rob Escher. "Everyone in this band plays several instruments, so the transition has been smooth. The creative process is a straighter path now and we are firing on all cylinders."

 

Matt Clark adds, "The three of us have been through a lot together to say the least and we are like brothers. It's really cool because we trust each other's musical instincts and have our own way of communicating ideas that we've developed over time. I've co-produced our records in the past with outside producers but for this one we decided I should take on that role myself. It turned out to be a great experience. We locked ourselves in my studio here in L.A. and didn't come out until we had the strongest Freakhouse record thus far."

 

Scott Freak has been a collector of oddities for years and this played into the artwork and photography for Angels in Chemistry. "I love the creepy, weird, and unique objects. They fascinate me and are perfect for this band's imagery. We really wanted this record to be a reflection of who we are as people and what our tastes are. We are not a band for everyone. Love us or hate us, there's no in between."

 

"The world has been a crazy place lately and more than ever, people need a release from their everyday stress," says Rob Escher.  "Rock shows are one of the few places left where you can let out all your frustrations and no one blinks an eye. We can't wait to take this new show on the road and help everybody forget their problems for a while."

 

Matt says, "The writing process for this record was really cool.  With Scott on the drums we were able to write much quicker than we have in the past.  We jammed on ideas for a night and then came back the next day, picked out the best parts and wrote songs around them. Some of my favorite songs come about when we are all sitting in a room throwing lyrical ideas back and forth and building out demos. The verse melody and lyrics in 'Outlaws, Outcasts, and Thieves' was something Rob just sang off the cuff for example.  That is one of my favorite songs for sure. It's definitely not quite like anything we have ever done, but it fits us perfectly."

 

Scott adds, "'Tokyo After Midnight' is a song that was built around Matt's opening guitar riff. Rob and I had heard that on a demo he showed us and we loved it. For decades there was a curfew in Tokyo for the youth. They couldn't be on the street or in clubs after midnight. This curfew was lifted a few years ago and we were amazed when we heard about it. We couldn't imagine being told to go home from the Rainbow or wherever at midnight.  We thought this would be a great idea for a song.  It's the first track on the record and really hits you over the head."


Rob says, "One of the coolest things about being in this band is getting to see the fans' reaction when we bring these songs to the stage. For us, the human connection is  the most important aspect of all of this. We don't take that for granted. It's always a great feeling to complete a new record and get to take it on the road."

Lyrics

Peel Away the Skin

Written By: Freakhouse

Let’s begin again
Wake up
What have you got that makes you feel this way
What have you got what have you got
That makes you wanna die today
Everything that you ever wanted
Everything that you ever said
All the lies that you perpetrated
The constant agony

Peel away peel away the skin yeah
Come on let’s begin again
Peel away peel away the skin yeah

What’s in your head
feels like you’re in a cage
What’s in your head what’s in your head
That makes you feel so estranged
JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP

Peel away peel away the skin yeah
Come on let’s begin again
Peel away peel away the skin yeah
Let’s begin again
Peel away peel away the skin yeah

Take a little piece of me cause that’s the way you want to be
You cram it in my face and now your spitting out your own disease
Take another pill and then you blow into the state’s machine
Truth hurts don’t it

Peel away the skin and let’s begin again peel away the skin and let’s begin again
Peel away the skin and let’s begin again let’s begin again YEAH

Beautiful Misery

Written By: Freakhouse

Get up get up get up get up JUMP
Get up get up get up get up JUMP
Get up get up get up get up JUMP
Get up get up get up get up JUMP

It lives inside of me it won’t let me go
I’m shattered again break me
And we’re all here to let it out
Shout back again
Free me now

I cannot touch
I cannot feel
I want to see to see what’s real

Do you think you can tell me what to do
Do you think you can tell me what to say
Will you ever believe me now
Do you think you can tell me what to do
Do you think you can tell me what to say

I look inside again for something that’s real
The pit it twisting again, inside me
Don’t think you can’t be replaced
Shout back again

So when I reach that point at the bottom of the fall
Where I never thought where I never thought
I’d want to, I’d want to
Time to say goodbye, time to say goodbye

Senseless

Written By: Freakhouse

Senseless Senseless Senseless Senseless SPITE

Breakneck super speedball smashing
Redline angel and a checkered flag reaction
Blood guts and glory
Pumping on all senses
Hardcore motorman and the will to beat them senseless

PRECHORUS:
And I have to beat
And I have to beat them
And I have to beat
And I have to beat them

Can you see me now
Can you feel me now
Watching me desicrate you
A violent axe on another man

Hitchhike brother branded half-wit
Twisted fatal got the Polaroid’s to prove it
Hook saw and splatter leather-face make you fear me
Human barbeque and the magic bullet theory

PRECHORUS:
And I have to beat
And I have to beat them
And I have to beat
And I have to beat them
Beat them senseless
