Biography

Hollywood Hangover is answering the demand for a rock band that caters to the masses while truly delivering both from the confines of the studio to the hot lights on stage. With their arsenal of original songs increasing along with their fan-base, Hollywood Hangover brings no stops when they hit the stage of the local clubs in the tri-state area.

Whether they are playing the famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park or the Blender Theatre in NYC they make sure their audience gets more than what they expect and pay for. With lyrics powered by relentless emotion, contagious melodies backed by an unforgivable driving force of melody and rhythm you will sure to be hooked quicker than nicotine.

With the band currently finishing up in the studio finishing up their first full length album “Songs for the Mourning After” they are excited that they will have material that can fully express their style and personalities.

“Our first EP “Ridicule My Heart & Feel My Liver” was really a time where we were trying to find our sound. We hit it right on the money with songs like Empty Promises, Venting, & 12 Gauge which will also be on the upcoming release,” comments lead singer Walter Pehowich.

The song ‘12 Gauge’ shows the mind being high jacked by jealousy. An emotion that is ignited by paranoia and maintained by anger gives the lyrics a heartfelt meaning that all can relate to when we think we are being betrayed, lied to or cheated on. “Well I’ll figure it out, well I’ll figure it out, well I’ll figure it out now” stands as a Hollywood Hangover’s proclamation of intent and to never underestimate yourself or others.

“We feel that the new songs will be much more fitting to where we currently are musically. We are excited to see where we will go from here as artists,” adds lead guitarist Frank Bianco.

With the bands release aiming to be released early 2009 the band will be working hard to promote their name and music to amplify the attention around the due date. Where ever you are just plan to experience a Hollywood Hangover.

Lyrics

Empty Promises

Written By: Walter Pehowich

Tell me what you think, Tell me how I feel, I'll let your reel me in, I'm gunna take you out
In my world, where everything could be coming in smoothly but it's never fully
Tell me what to say, cauz I can barely drink the bottle deep inside of me
And wash my guilt away, take my hand and come with me

Let's go for a ride, inside my mind, I'll show you a good time
Nothing left to hide, except for my Empty Promises
Tell me how you feel, when you see me from the inside out
Breaking through my seal is the first step to, figuring myself out
So let's go for a ride

Tell me what you know, Tell me what you don't, flipping through the wrongs, we're gunna strike it gold
In my mountain, where everything could be coming in smoothly but it's never fully,
Tell me what to say, so I can fairly tame the animal deep inside of me And wash it all away, take my hand and come with me

Let's go for a ride, inside my mind, I'll show you a good time
Nothing left to hide, except for my Empty Promises
Tell me how you feel, when you see me from the inside out
Breaking through my seal is the first step to, figuring myself out
So let's go for a ride

12 Gauge

Turn off the light baby

Wait up, I know it hurts, but it seems that it's worse, than it, really is
I feel, a little better, but still under the weather, or not your telling me the truth
Well I'll figure it out, Well I'll figure it out, Well I'll figure it out now you, Tell me you love me, but then, you push and shove me to the outside of the truth

Straight up I know, that this love's for show, and your messing around but I, cant put my finger on it

And I hope your glad, your driving me mad, I'm crashing, I can't do a thing about it

Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true
Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true
I know it's true

I know, everything might be a little different but it might be my sign
To get out, all of the questions that been seeking their confessions and the right time to be just, Well I wanna know

Well I'll figure it out, Well I'll figure it out, Well I'll figure it out now

All of the questions that been plaguing my obsessions what you really do with my time

Straight up I know, that this love's for show, and your messing around but I, cant put my finger on it

And I hope your glad, your driving me mad, I'm crashing, I can't do a thing about it

Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true
Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true

It's like a 12 gauge in your mouth, it's like a good deal gone south, it's like a 12 gauge in your mouth, yeah well I'll figure it out

It's like a 12 gauge in your mouth, it's like a good deal gone south, it's like a 12 gauge in your mouth, yeahhhhhhh

Straight up I know, that this love's for show, and your messing around but I, cant put my finger on it

And I hope your glad, your driving me mad, I'm crashing, I can't do a thing about it

Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true
Feel Me, Cheat Me, Feel Me Alone I know it's true

(THE END)

Venting

Written By: Walter Pehowich

Start with you, you always thought you were above the truth
So if you think you have the pounds, to push this sinner down,
you got one more comin to you

Lead to me, I need to stay me more consistently,
Some might rate me I am loud,
Some say I'm another face in the crowd,
I just need a phrase to define me,
In my mind, In my soul

In this world, I never thought I be,
Confused about who I am, who I'm suppose to be
I'm gunna look inside, I'm gunna take what's mine
I'm gunna let it shine

Well I don't want to be the sound that goes in and out
I don't want to be the one who hurts everyone
I just want to be the mind that you will follow
I don't want to be the sound

Back to you, don't ever think I'll kneel down to you,
You can take a swing I'll turn my cheek,
you might not understand the meek,
but you just wound up praising me

Back to me, I need to find a personality,
Am I the tough or am I the fun kind?
Am I the moon or am I the sunshine?
I just need some labeling

Well I don't want to be the sound that goes in and out
I don't want to be the one who hurts everyone
I just want to be the mind that you will follow
I don't want to be the sound
