By their fourth show in their home-base of Orange County they were already selling out the local rock club. The project began when lead 'sing-writer' Mark Malek burned all his belongings in a ceremonial suburban lawn fire clearing the way for a new sound conjuring wild comparisons to David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, and The Band. A wide collection of colorful musicians orbit the group's core philosophy which is to serve humanity one song at a time.

The first untitled self-produced CD promptly sold out of the only copies ever pressed, which prompted a big national commercial release entitled "Under a Killer Blue Sky". Over one million internet downloads resulted when Tom Anderson, Founder of MySpace, discovered them and they became the first band sponsored by the massive web portal. Many privileges followed such as a headlining spot on the MySpace stage for all of Warped Tour '05, showcase at the Sundance Film Festival '09, the accumulation of over thirty-seven thousand MySpace friends, interviews for reputable media outlets like NPR and Business 2.0, and inclusion on widely distributed compilations such as MySpace Records Vol. 1, the Take Action, and AMP Magazine samplers. Their albums and the live shows have received rave critical review including 4 K's in Kerrang! and praise in Alternative Press. Songs from that same album can be heard on several episodes of MTV's Real World, MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge, One Tree Hill, and in several independent films.

Now the seminal work of Malek's Jupiter Sunrise experiment has recently been released along with a vast reservoir of new raw material excitedly awaiting the moment when it will begin it's own journey to countless eager fans.

Lyrics

Steal Me

Written By: Ben Karis

*please note: Mp3 of "Steal Me" was larger than 5mb, as much as we could fit is included*

Sleep in the grass in a blue field. The fireflies blinking past Orion. All sprawled out beside the bikes, the wheels still spinnin'.

I know a shortcut along the stonewall where Evergreen soldiers point their branches for a child-like mind, like yours and mine to follow.

C'mon, steal me. C'mon steal me.

I drew a map so we can get home or maybe come back here in the summer. But I'm not sure how to draw a path to get to moonlight.

So, tonight, these stars can shine as our halos and the pine trees watch over like guardian angels, protecting a perfect love between twilight and all a lifetime of yearning.

I won't be awake for much longer. So c'mon, steal me.

Kaye

Written By: Mark Houlihan

Kaye, are you even real? Do you think that maybe we could be lovers once in a while? Say something I can feel. I am never here and it's impossible to heal. Go ahead and understand me underneath this killer blue sky. Go ahead and understand me please.

Kaye, are you even real? Do you think we'll ever figure it out, I'm running out of hope. Say anything you feel. Maybe you can do it for the both of us and I'll untie the rope.

Kaye, out there in the world I am full of their hate, their crime. In here we are both light and pure of heart. Out there in the world I am left for dead don't help me. In here it's like we can be pure of heart.

It's hard enough to breathe right here, let alone be right here, let alone here you say, "love." It's hard enough trying to be strong right now. I try to be wrong right now. I try to be anything that doesn't scare her away.

Kaye, are you even real? Do you think that maybe we could just stay here?

Why'd I Wait So Long

Written By: Benjamin Karis

The shape of forever 'round her finger
from whom her love belongs
Drivin' home I wonder, "why'd I wait so long?"
Why'd I wait so long?

Whoah, oh no
Why did I wait so long?
Whoah, oh no
Why'd I wait so long?
Where, now, will all this love for you belong?

All the feathers I was holding
have long since blown away
When Spring sings a new song for me
Am I still holding on?
Am I still holding on?

Whoah, oh no
Why did I wait so long?
Whoah, oh no
Why'd I wait so long?
Where, now, will all this love for you belong?

This song's for moving on...

Whoah, oh no
Why did I wait so long?
Whoah, oh no
Why'd I wait so long?
Where, now, will all this love for you belong?

Gamble Everything for Love

Written By: Mark Houlihan

there's been a subtle change now in the weather
and it only makes you happy if you're floating like a feather
there've been times and times and times again
rivers run if you don't pretend
i'll never let ever be that way again

(chorus)
i'll learn the best of everything
forget the rest of everything
fill this nest with everything
then gamble all of it for love

(verse)

why do i try

when all of this will die

i am the watcher you are the priest

we are the lover the poet and the beast

lately my eyes have been looking to the east

(chorus)
i'll learn the best of everything
forget the rest of everything
fill this nest with everything
then gamble all of it for love

(verse)

there's more than one road on your way back home

but you'll have to do it do it do it all alone

then when you get there you will be
with the one's you love (and you will see)

that wizard scientist who is singing up above

          and he says "gamble everything for love...
gamble everything for love...
gamble all of it for love...
         
and we say "gamble everything for love...
gamble everything for love...
gamble all of it for love"

Sail On Silver Tear

Written By: Mark Malek Houlihan

sail on silver tear
it's already saturday
every drop's a new frontier
fear already had it's way

i'm addicted to disappearing
we all got something to reveal
what are you concealing

sail on silver tear
it's already saturday
every drop's a new frontier
fear already had it's way

oh

with this love of mine
we can help ourselves to all the raindrops
with this love of mine, this love of mine
we can help ourselves to all the raindrops

magic's all around
and coming hear to dine with us
sacred is the sound
of countless hearts in time with us
magic's all around
and coming hear to dine with us
sacred is the sound

sail on silver tear
it's already saturday
sail on silver tea
