Combining melodic and powerful vocals with infectious songwriting and solid musicianship, Gone by June's debut EP "Fighting Constants" is now available.

Biography

Gone by June came together in 2005 but began life in the fall of 2000 when guitarist Ryan Bullard, bassist Tom Suess, and frontman Ryan Armstrong formed Countershade, a band that performed regularly in venues such as the Clarendon Ballroom and the State Theatre. After a year-long hiatus, the three reunited in 2004, this time to write and develop songs for a new album. The band's lineup was completed in March 2005 with the addition of drummer Spencer Vliet.

In September, the band recorded their debut EP "Fighting Constants" at Cue Studios in Falls Church, VA. “Fighting Constants” displays Gone By June’s powerful chemistry and infectious songwriting. “Perch,” the EP’s opening track, builds from a simple rhythmic guitar accompanied only by Armstrong’s vocals into a dynamic chorus and a compelling guitar solo. The second track, “One Last End” features a resonant opening drum groove and an irresistibly melodic chorus. “The Sound” is pure rock and roll – forceful, insistent and powerful while the closing track, “Four In a Row,” showcases Armstrong’s formidable vocal talent. His skillful falsetto and warm tone on this track make it no surprise that Gone By June was recently awarded best male vocals in alternative rock by the listeners of garageband.com.

Gone By June recently began playing live shows as well, headlining a show at IOTA and playing others at TT Reynold’s and the Grog & Tankard. The band will be playing in the DC area in the winter and spring of 2006 and plans to record a full-length album next year.

Lyrics

slightly broken

Written By: tom suess - gone by june

"SLightly Broken"

Verse1

All of my sentiments

settle slowly

-to the bottom

All of these barren walls

cover slowly

-draped in envy

I'm Slightly Broken

Slightly Broken

Chorus:

Tell me why

tell me why

The answer to your plea it's always

one more chance for you

and a Tragedy for me

You can solve

every wrong

withdrawal from the pain

you quickly let go of the line

suspending me in time.

Verse2:

all your impediments

slow me greatly

-from our ending

my life instead of this

could be saintly

-forge my regrets

I'm Slightly Broken

Slightly Broken

Chorus:

Tell me why

tell me why

The answer to your plea it's always

one more chance for you

and a Tragedy for me

You can solve

every wrong

withdrawal from the pain

you quickly let go of the line

suspending me in time.

Bridge:

All I can do or say

take it take away

because it's you

it's you

because it's you

it's you.

Chorus:

Tell me why

tell me why

The answer to your plea it's always

one more chance for you

and a Tragedy for me

You can solve

every wrong

withdrawal from the pain

you quickly let go of the line

suspending me in time.
