Biography

Forming 3 years ago out of a mutual desire to play good pop songs faster and louder than anyone else, My Device quickly garnered a reputation for their chaotic and intense live shows. After touring the UK extensively to promote their self-released EP, "Mendoza!" they were picked form a list of 10,000 other acts as the winners of the prestigious NME.com's SONY WALKMAN BREAKING BAND competion. The Panel of judges were comprised of some of the most prominant figures in British music, such as former head of Creation Records Alan McGee, and members of Bloc Party. The prize for winning was to support Kasabian at the massive NME.com 10th Birthday party at KOKO in London. Since then the band have released their debut album "Nervous System" through Indie-legends Shifty Disco Records, which was met with extremely positive reviews, and their new single "Eat Lead" will be coming out at the end of February. Advance reviews of "Eat Lead" have already sited the band as "One of the most excitingb new bands in Britain"...(Disorder Magazine).

Lyrics

Eat Lead

Written By: Todd Jordan

You're not afraid are you?
Don't be afraid!
You're burning brightly 'cos your hearts aflame.
Every action is electrical.
Your neons buzzing and your in control.
You've got drive and you've got class.
You've gotta go gotta go gotta go real fast!

T-t-t-tonight is a
a pretty girl who wants you to kiss her!
Why are you waiting mister?
This is a blank cheque!
This is a bullet proof vest!
And your lifes not over yet.
Why don't you come and get it?
The ebb and flow of a guy on the go, can't be killed with conventional weapons and can't be controlled.
No!
The city the city is an
offer you can't refuse
Super Head!
Simon says "let them Eat Lead"!
EAT LEAD!

Tonight tonight tonight you
are made of glittering metal
You are the fever sweat
that only mad men get
But that is irrelevant
The cream will rise to the top
and your the cream of the crop!
