Biography

Haunt is latest project from ex-Ware River Club frontman Matt Hebert. However, most listeners familiar with that outfit's gentle alt-country might not recognize the first few bars of Haunt's new CD "The Deep North." A blast of distorted guitar and pounding drums signals a new path for Hebert, who has used Haunt over the last few years to explore some new musical ground while retaining his emotive, often dark, take on life and relationships. The Deep North is due out in September 2008.

Recent TV/Film placements include: feature-length film, Anderson's Cross (Illumination Pictures, Inc) and, "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS, Monday Nights).

Hebert has also performed at SXSW (2005), NXNE (2005 & 2006), NEMO (2005), and Lalapalooza (Paste After Party 2007).

Lyrics

Broken Light

Written By: Matthew Hebert

t's impossible to see
When you're staring
through the eyes of impossibility
But right now I feel beat
And I've been down before but
This time it's for keeps

So hold on real tight
‘Til the moment when I'm blue in
the face and I'm not breathing light
Cause right now I don't feel fine
And I'm crazed by the notion that
You and I ain't living right

So hey won't you be my sanity tonight
Look me in the eyes and tell me that
I'm all right
Hey won't you be my innocence tonight
If you look inside you might find my
broken light is shining

It's impossible to speak
When you're talking through the
mouth of intensitivity
But right now I feel mean
And I bit my lip before but
This time it's too deep

The Deep End

Written By: Matthew Hebert

Well I was hanging onto every word you said
And you were naked as the day that I was dead
And though you try to make your misery so clear
I think you like it here

You think that we's be better off alone
I'll believe that I can live without a soul
I wonder why you're leaving me so slow
I think you got to know

That I can see the rockets fly
Every time you smile
I can see the rockets fly
But wonder why they had to dive
Into the deep end

And if you think that we can live without a fear
I think the fear is gone but we're still
shaking hear
Like icicles erupting in the snow
I think you got to know

That you coaked my soul
Like its never known

Two days passed since I've seen you laugh

And you coaked my soul
Like its never known

Run Run Run

Written By: Matthew Hebert

Somebody believe me when I say
Life for me is a million miles away
somebody believe, behind the eyes cotastrophies
somebody believe me when I say

and somebody belive me when i go
i'll be living lower than you know
somebody believe, behind the eyes cotastophies
somebody believe me when i go

but I'm already gone
long before I turn 21
somebody look in and find that little kid
and tell him I said Run Run Run

and somebody believe me when I sleep
Every day begins with you and me
somebody believe
and will you be that somebody
somebody believe me when I sleep

but I'm already gone
long before I turn 21
somebody look in and find that little kid
and tell him I said Run Run Run

It’s impossible to see
When you’re staring
through the eyes of impossibility
But right now I feel beat
And I’ve been down before but
This time it’s for keeps

So hold on real tight
‘Til the moment when I’m blue in
the face and I’m not breathing light
Cause right now I don’t feel fine
And I’m crazed by the notion that
You and I ain’t living right

So hey won’t you be my sanity tonight
Look me in the eyes and tell me that
I’m all right
Hey won’t you be my innocence tonight
If you look inside you might find my
broken light is shining

It’s impossible to speak
When you’re talking through the
mouth of intensitivity
But right now I feel mean
And I bit my lip before but
This time it’s too deep
