Imminent Domain

Imminent Domain


Imminent Domain are all brothers who have played music together for the last 7 years. Opening for acts as The Plain White T's, Secondhand Serenade, and Back in Black. Imminent Domain can entertain crowds of all ages and love putting on an interactive and fun show.


We are a family band, kinda like Hanson but way cooler, and without the hair, and without the one hit wonder, and not famous...damn!
We started playing our instruments(all self-taught) about seven years ago out of the blue. We weren't raised on music but have always been exposed to it. Mom loved The Beatles and Eric Clapton and Dad raised us on The King and the 50's and 60's.
So when we were in high-school, Kyle(drummer) started getting into Metallica and music, Mac got into Slipknot and music, and I(Chris) got into Blink-182 and music. After a year of messing around and learning how to play instruments, we found out that Mac and I have pretty decent voices and Kyle is a wizard with the sticks.
We just enjoyed playing in front of our family and friends, especially on Friday nights after football games. Everyone knew you go to the Petitjean's household for some entertainment. Everyone got tired of us playing fast punk rock and whatnot, so we started learning some oldies and crowd favorites and it opened up a new gig for us. Imminent Domain then started getting actually paying gigs.
During us realizing we love being in front of people and entertaining, we started writing our own stuff and we have had 2 full length albums and 2 demos since then.
Our latest CD "Purtinear, Ain't Is" is our best work yet. With tracks such as "Moving on ain't the same as forgetting" (written about the VT shooting) "Penny for your thoughts, two if I know'em" (about a break-up/relationship) "Hung Jury" (basically Law & Order) "E.N.D" (a love song within the Toronado that leveled Greensburg, KS). Mac and I like writing about anything and everything. Things that are meaningful and can mean something to someone else.
What's in store for Imminent Domain, who knows, but we love playing music and performing for others and we'll do it as long as we can!


Moving On Ain't The Same As Forgetting

Written By: Chris Petitjean/Mac Petitjean

We never thought that it would ever end up this way
young dreams shot down from a barrel
In the hands of which whose were lost
Looking outward to a world
Of confusion now rest shut
Why is the never-ending question that was sought out
Ran short to the press
We expect the past to forecast the future
But how could theirs really end up this way

a new direction for us to point the blame
We never thought that it would ever end up this way
A new direction for us to point the blame
We never thought that it would ever end up this way
Who knew, who knew, who knew, who knew
We never thought that it would ever end up this way

other people’s lives flash before my eyes
On the TV set
Radio waves of past conclusions
Set the standards for resolutions

with in one day our world can shake
Remember with certainty for lover’s sake
Robbed away without letting us say
Seeing all black and white like a rainy day
To go ahead was found never with ease
A march ahead cries out unity
Walk with me, walk with me

Moving on ain’t the same as forgetting
Moving on ain’t the same as forgetting

Penny For Your Thoughts, Two If I Know'em

Written By: Mac Petitjean

forgive me if I’m too up front, forgive if it’s not what you want
Keep in mind this is not the right way
Keep in mind this song is what I’ll never say
Memory is all that’s left of me, crying is your way of releasing
I will not say that I’m sorry, that is one thing that’s just not in me

as the table turns the splinter sheds
Falling in the ruins of what’s gone unnoticed
The emotional fraud with our eyes
Were so tightly shut you were facing mine
Your heart felt so alive, I’ll never feel alive for you

I hope the sidewalks run over you
I hope the car drives you insane
I hope you never feel a drop of rain again
But if the sidewalks drive you insane, and the car runs over you
As you lay in the street to feel a drop of rain again
You’ll know we played this song again

so tell me
And if we cross paths in time
You walk in front and I’ll stay behind
With a grin on my face
I will walk to the pace
Of this song in the back of you mind


Written By: Chris Petitjean/Mac Petitjean

The rain continues to fall, the water seeps in through the walls
God decides when we can see, and I promise you I’ll never leave
And as the night rolls on, in the lives of so many
Swept away, forgotten memories
The cold breeze, is no match for your breathe on my cheek
As the lights go out, and the wind picks up
The circle clouds form above
Give us no time to act
Just hold on tight and believe in the past
When the new day comes, and we see the horizon
I’ll hear your voice, and feel your eyes and
We will dream again, and I can breathe again

Hold my breath, forget about the rest
Two hearts will know, that I’ll never let you go
Stand firm and fight, the wrath of the night
I’ll make it okay, before you awake

your soft skin warms the sun in the morning
Bird sang melody, a love song for you and me
We’ll stand on the ruins of what we use to call home
And we’ll know that we were never, and are not alone

one more disaster, one more record
I’ll just hold my baby/life, that much tighter
