"A power rock band with one of the strongest front men I've ever seen. This band has the promise and ability to fill arenas for the next decade." -Herve Romain, Interscope Geffen A&M Records

Biography

"The idea is to be timeless...not precious." That's the word according to the group. The crunch of metal guitar for the sake of sounding contemporary is, if anything, an afterthought; at times existing almost to spite the current trend rather than kowtowing to it. Instead, blindDRIVE is a channeling of songs that were desperate to come out, almost as if they had waited for just the right time to be heard. Twelve tunes unconcerned with the package in which they are delivered, equally at home in the deafening volume of any rock bar or in the privacy of your own headphones. Scratch the surface and suddenly Livintrust defies categorization.

In true rock band fashion, they conceived and wrote the songs that would become blindDRIVE clustered around haphazardly assembled gear and a 4-track recorder; first in the sweltering New Haven attic rehearsal space of singer Ken M, then in a maze of band rooms and makeshift studios housed in derelict factory buildings near Hartford. These enclosing spaces would force inner concentration and attention to detail, everybody invading the personal territory of the others, and leave the band no choice but to learn to fly in formation. And every rock band does it; a near endless procession of musicians and singers, coming and going until that perfect chemistry is discovered, a perfect balance acheived. Now Keith Caro could bring with them guitars to pick and choose from an endless bag of riffs and an infinite number of ideas; Justin Wade sending the notes from a bass over to drummer Matthew Christopher where they were pounded into songs. Finally, Ken M snarled a lyrical invitation to the curious to come take a look inside.

"It's just a fun ride," as one band member put it, though they take it as seriously as could be expected. Livintrust is at once a band cohesive and collected, yet teetering on the verge of implosion. Their sleight of hand is the depth of the content lurking almost out of earshot, each word beckoning the listener to catch up or be left behind. The common goal now is to stay balanced. And as long as it matters to someone, what could be more fun than that?

Lyrics

Waited

Written By: Livintrust

Do you
remember walking hills and dying just to venture out on your own / and hoping to find some peace of mind somewhere you can let your guard down / All you stumbled upon was pain, so now you have become so hateful / You pass it on, on to me and I don’t feed in at all

I’ve
waited so long / To find a place inside / Where I could finally be
myself you know / I waited so long to hold a world of my own / And I
can show you all that’s in me / You know I’ve waited so long, so long

Oh, I remember climbing hills, dying to just venture off on my own
/ And hoping to find somewhere I could take this mask off and let my
guard down / But all I stumbled upon was fate so now I have become so jaded / And I pass it on to all I know and I don’t feel it at all

I’ve waited so long / To find a place inside / Where I could finally
be myself you know / I waited so long to hold a world of my own / And I can show you all that’s in me / You know I’ve waited so long, so long, so long, so long

Your heart is black, you’re soul has burned / Your heart is black, you’re soul has burned / And I
want you to know, all the hate that I show is a reflection of pain you have given to me / And I need you to see, all the hate that’s in me, all the hate that’s in me, all the hate that’s in me

I think I’ve waited enough,
it’s mine / This place inside where I can finally be myself you know /
You know I have waited so long to hold a world of my own / And I can
show you all that’s in me

I’ve waited so long / To find a place
inside / Where I could finally be myself you know / You know I waited so long to roll these logs off my soul / And I can show you just what I mean / You know I’ve waited so long / Been so frustrated along, I couldn’t take it so long / How would I let you know when all you do is tell me I’m wrong / You know I’ve waited so long / Been so frustrated along / How would I let you know when all I do is wrong
