Biography

“A fantastic band. Livingston have Top Ten potential” Colin Murray - BBC Radio 1 DJ

After brief recording sessions at Abbey Road and a live performance video shoot at London’s MTV Studios earlier in 2006 Livingston have recently signed a deal with UK Indie Manta Ray Music.
As a result of that, the London based band, whose members come from Italy, Norway, Germany and South Africa, spent the whole of December in L.A. recording songs for their forthcoming album with producer Al Clay (Stereophonics, Feeder, Pixies).

Livingston won the prestigious "UK Carling Battle Of The Bands" in 2005 and has spent the last two years rocking Europe's stages, from frosty Dublin to the southern beaches of Mykonos.

Livingston's first single, which the band recorded with James Lewis (Arctic Monkeys) will be out in the UK on Manta Ray Music in June.

Lyrics

Silence

Written By: Beukes Willemse (Livingston)

Someone else’s suicide
Is better left until you’ve died
No one left you so unclean
But then you’ve been crying

And whether you where right or wrong
It’s never left until it’s done
No one left you I believe
But then I’ve been

Silenced
By the soul I bare
When I’m no longer sun dried

Hiding
From the whole damn world
I Believe I will suffer for my pride

And if Godliness is all you need
The son of man is filled with greed
Nothings left you so unsure
But then you’ve been hiding

And whether this is right or wrong
It’s better left until it’s gone
No one loved you anyway

But then I have been so blind
As if day had turned to night
We will get what we give
How I’ve long for the / Just as I’ve been?

Silenced
By the soul I bare
When I’m no longer sun dried

Hiding
From the whole damn world
I believe I will find pride

But finding
That I made my bed
And by God now I’ll lie in ‘it

Someone else’s suicide
Is better left until you’ve died
No one left you so unclean
But then you’ve been crying

And whether you where right or wrong
You ran away from what you’ve done
Nothings left you so unclean
And that’s why you’ve been crying
Just as I’ve been

Silenced
By the Cross I bear
When I’m no longer sun dried

Hiding
From the whole I see
I believe I will fall right through

I’ve been

Silenced
From the whole damn world
How I long to see you break

You have left me by the stairs

How I need my fame

You’ve left me so alive
