Midnight Vespers

BandRockAlternative

Unique Alternative Rock band from Chicago. Strong female vocals in front of an experienced band with influences from Reggae to Metal, and everything in between. Great for audiences of all ages, with hints of classic rock meshed in with a new rock style that is all our own.

Biography

The Band was formed in late 2004 as an acoustic band by Josh and Jake just to hang out and play some great guitar. After adding Patt on drums, David on bass, and Richelle on Vocals, the band started to take off. Over the past few years our musical influences have varied from Metal and Hard Rock to Grunge and Alternative. Each Member of the band has very different influences, and in turn bring something very different to the table when it comes time to write.

Our EP, Black Suits and Samurai Swords, was competed in the Summer of 2006, and was named because of the bands sense of humor. On the last day of the senior year for the band (except Richelle) went to school wearing black suits with neon plastic samurai swords attached to there belts, and as a band, used this opportunity to promote there soon to come out EP. Since the bands departure to college, they have still stayed strong and kept it together, playing gigs during the year, and heavily during the summer.

Also the band hasn't let the distance slow down there writing, using E-mail and sound recorders, the band has continued to write year round. This past summer the band has had its biggest shows to date, one at the Emerald Theater in Mount Clemens, MI and the other at the Elbo Room in Chicago.

We take our Music seriously, and play for the love of the music and the thrill of being on stage. We promote hard and have been played on local radio stations, and featured in 11 local newspapers.

Lyrics

Degrees Of Freedom

Written By: Midnight Vespers

(barred)/trapped in myself/this skin is my cage

i will not siez breaking my hands on the gate

can you wait/can't you see that i hold back my screams

can you see/can you wait/wait to watch me bleed

>>ON THE OTHER SIDE/JUST OUT OF REACH

>>I WILL BREAK FREE

>>LIGHTEN THE WEIGHT/I'LL BREAK THESE CHAINS

>>I WILL BE FREE

(trapped)/lost in my head/this mind is my maze

a labrynth full of dead ends and empty door ways

you all wait/you all see/as i hold back my screams

you all see/you all wait/wait to watch me bleed

ON THE OTHER SIDE/JUST OUT OF REACH

I WILL BREAK FREE

LIGHTEN THE WEIGHT/I'LL BREAK THESE CHAINS
I WILL BE FREE
ON THE OTHER SIDE/JUST OUT OF REACH
I WILL BREAK FREE
LIGHTEN THIS WEIGHT/I'LL BREAK THESE CHAINS

I WILL BE FREE
I WILL BE FREE...
