Havenstance is a high energy rock band. We are influenced by countless other acts and take elements of everything from ambience and acoustic pop to metal and hard rock. We are a band that believes in Jesus first and simply want to share that with others through diverse and exciting music. Enjoy!

Biography

Havenstance is a five-piece band out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada with a distinct and diverse musical expression. Their objective as a band is not playing for glory, fame, fortune, the love of music or any of the other typical reasons bands are formed. They consistently state and stand by their creed: "This band is a platform to promote the freedom found in Christ's unconditional love. Freedom is the Movement." Throughout their lives, each member of Havenstance has faced overwhelming obstacles that they have had to overcome. Two have defied death, the diagnosis of doctors and medical science while another should be completely deaf, yet hears with precision. By speaking openly about their struggles, Havenstance is breaking down the judgmental and self-righteous walls of empty religion and testifying to how amazing and life changing knowing God truly is.

Lyrics

American Top 40

Written By: Havenstance

Life fell short when I really wanted to fly
Sometimes I feel like that my life
Was never worth all the time
You go, you walk around alone
All night, looking for the latest excitement
Now I know (I know that)

Sands fall and we’re out of time
And now we’re on the run (up a hill)
While the winds push us
And we’re never falling down to the bottom alone
Because we’re on the run (And soon enough we’re gonna)
Hit the top and we are never coming down

I always felt that I’d live out my own life
Without a single regret
Trying to forgive and forget
But I still feel the pain
Of knowing that I need to be a better man
I’m gonna chase the deal and make it real
Because the truth is I can
The time has come to start again

Stealing from my life I pay
Just to feel up high for a short while
But I am sick of seeing the sunrise
Every night without closing my eyes
I’ve got life to live today

For The Win

Written By: Havenstance

Pleasure is mine, so I give away my time, my heart and mind.
The better part of my day is to send out my advice
You fought the winds and you’re falling out now
Look to the sky at love looking into your eyes
Still now you’re meant to be
the voice of a community
For the win right here with me

Those who stand for others, hold on, you know that
Relief is on the way, get your head straight back in the game
No runnin' away scared, like you always do.

I’m flyin' high in this life, I know it’s hard to walk a straight line
I’m here to assist you, but they hide a guiding light
They put the walls up and I see them, I break 'em all down
Look to the sky at love looking into your eyes
Still now you’re meant to be
the voice of a community
For the win right here with me

Those who stand for others, hold on, you know that
Relief is on the way, get your head straight back in the game
They try to put us in our place, never give up and hold on to
My hand along the way, were getting closer with every day
no runnin' away scared, like you always do.

Do you feel it yet?
Something catches your eye, you dont know.
They come to test you but you show them what it's about
Do they really think I'll just lay it all out, they dont know,
We're runnin' this all day
All signs for finish lines ahead now.

Those who stand for others, hold on, you know that
Relief is on the way, get you head straight back in the game
They try to put us in our place, never give up and hold on to
My hand along the way, were getting closer every day
Don’t ever look back, and shine the light from within...

For The Win

Loves Coming Around

Written By: Havenstance

Don't believe when they say it's impossible to know
How to get to the place you're meant to go
You're lookin to get back on that road
To find the best time that you know
These problems keep on coming around
There is a love in the breakdown

Reach for the one its okay
Love's calling to get back
So faith will say today

You make it special
You call me by name

Breakaway come on there's a better way to go
This is for you
A love that takes you home
Rather than make it on your own
Reach out and live your life to love this town
There's a new world coming around
Stand up and take your place now yeah

Just the same
Just the same
Love's coming around
You're all i need
There's a safe way in knowing
Love's coming around

All my life I've been trying to make it all alone
Now I can trust you
Cause in my heart I know
You are the light that brings me home
Just breathe and take the time to clear my mind
Loving me is enough to believe
This is real

You make it special
You call me by name

Just the same
Just the same
Love's coming around
You're all i need
Just the same
Just the same
Love's coming around
You're all I see
There's a safe way of knowing
I have faith and hope so I just know love's coming around

You make all of our days
And I'll always say
I'll always live my life for you
You make all of our days
And I'll always say that I will
I'll always live my life for you

Just the same
Just the same
Love's coming around
You're all I need
Just the same
Just the same
Love's coming around
You're all I see
There's a safe way of knowing
Real love is here and now
I have faith and hope
So I just know love's coming around
Love's coming around

Peace

Peace
Written by Havenstance

Verse:

The ocean of Your love surrounding me
You guide me in the light so I can see
You overwhelm my heart now I believe
Your power formed the heavens yet
You're breathing life into my soul

Pre-Chorus:

Love is what You’re calling me to be
My faith has come alive knowing You’re here with me

Chorus:

You said, peace and be still your words hold my heart to yours
I have hope and I know You heal me with perfect love

Verse:

All that desire is found in You
I’ll never understand why You’ve chosen me to do Your will

Pre-Chorus:

Love is what You’re calling me to be
My faith has come alive knowing You’re here with me

Chorus:

You said, peace and be still your words hold my heart to yours
I have hope and I know You heal me with perfect love

Bridge:

Redeemer by my right hand
Reach down and pull me from the darkness

Discography

After releasing their first EP for free download in April 2011, Havenstance received over 1000 downloads and public outcry for more music. Havenstance decided to take a few months over the summer of 2011 and release a second album, 'Are You Listening?'

Hoping to continue building off of the success of their initial, self titled offering, 'Are You Listening?' continues to explore new sounds and continues to redefine the band both artistically and spiritually.

The lyrics to the new EP are laced with Christian themes and confessions of faith and Havenstance hopes and prays that this new record reaches even more people in even more parts of the world with a message of love, peace, hope and joy that can only be found through Christ!

Their new single - Peace has already been picked up by mainstream Christian radio and comparions to bands like Switchfoot and Thousand Foot Krutch are both humbling and a blessing. Please enjoy Havenstance!
