My Hidden Track draws from their influences Say Anything, Bayside, Hot Rod Circuit, and The Get Up Kids. They give you everything from big rock riffs to pop punk breakdowns, gang vocals to singalong choruses and lyrics as culturally relevant as they are heartbreaking.

Biography

After playing to a sold-out crowd of 450 in December of 2008, the remaining two members of My Hidden Track were uncertain if they had just played their last show ever or if it was the beginning of something new. Chad Lehr and Nick Coffing knew one thing for sure-- they weren’t done playing music together.The Indianapolis natives My Hidden Track sat on this idea for six months.

Then what began as an advertisement campaign back in late January, My Hidden Track removed all the content from their myspace, purevolume, etc and simply left this message: The addiction begins March 2009. Still not having a solid lineup or a concrete plan for their comeback from their six month hiatus My Hidden Track began writing, I mean really writing, with an end goal in mind to have a record complete by March. Often locking themselves in their east side practice space for 12 hours at a time and holding acoustic writing sessions nightly. The end result of their late night sessions is their forthcoming Hey Love EP scheduled to be released June 5th, 2009 on Crown Point’s Dare to Dream Records.

Although My Hidden Track may no longer be the number one power pop band in Indiana, that doesn’t seem to phase them, their goals and ideals have changed over the last few months. They are back with new members, with new songs, and a stronger work ethic than ever. A determination to write, record and perform every song as though it is their last. “I don’t mean to discredit anything we’ve accomplished in the last two years, I’m proud of how far we’ve gotten, but there’s no comparing the songs we were writing then compared to what we are doing now. These songs feel honest, brutal, straight forward and to the point.” says guitarist Chandler Lehr. While they may no longer be playing any songs off of their June 2007 debut release There’s No One Left To Let Me Down their fans now have a whole new set of songs to enjoy that continues to expand. “We had a handful of songs going into the writing process and the end result is our eight song EP, but there are still an ever-growing list of songs that we have written since the album and unreleased songs that we continue to develop,” says Lehr.

“This record is a new sound for us; setting new expectations” says guitarist Nick Coffing “I hope our fans can understand we haven’t abandoned them... everyone we know and love is on this record somewhere. This is the exact record we wanted to put out and thanks to Dare to Dream Records we were able to do just that.”

My Hidden Track promises that there are still plenty of opportunities to dance but as bassist Chad Forbregd added “We didn’t want to put out another power pop record, it wasn’t where our heads or hearts were anymore, instead we wanted to put out a straight forward rock record... a call to art and that’s exactly what we did. If this is the last record I ever play a note on, I am beyond satisfied with that.”

While My Hidden Track spent most of 2008 playing with, trying out, and borrowing every local drummer in Indianapolis, they assure of this, they’ve finally found their final lineup.

The addiction has begun.

Hey Love / Are you out there? / Are you listening to my songs? / So why don’t you just go / Somewhere we don’t know? / You’re never gonna see this face again / No, you’re never gonna see this face again / I assure you

Oh, whoa no / Well this couldn’t be more inexcusable / The way I’ve treated you / Cause I, I tried so hard / At finding new ways to say “I’m sorry, will you forgive me please?” / I don’t wanna hear / Your damn excuses dear / Cause they won’t add up / To weigh more than these tears / Cause you lied, when you said that you’d try / And make this last for a while / Cause I don’t care / For you anymore my dear / Cause you’re just a bitch / And you don’t mean shit / And I’ll be over you in a / But oh, whoa no / This couldn’t be more unexplainable / The way you’re leaving me / Cause I, to this day, I still don’t know, exactly what went wrong / Or how fast that you left / You left me all alone / Cause you’re just a bitch / And you don’t mean shit / And I’ll be over you in a heartbeat. / Well it’s not over, by a long shot / Oh hell no / Well it’s not over, by a long shot / Oh hell no / Well it’s not over / It’s not over yet

Well I’ve been sleepin’ just fine now / And I think I’ve finally figured it out / Well it took me oh so so long / But I’ve finally made peace with being alone / I think that you should know this / That I took notice / On almost everything / And in my past it has / Become one of my biggest enemies / It’s my biggest enemy / So I’m letting you know now / That I’m letting you go now / And there’s no need to worry / You’ll be just fine without me / So I’ve been sleepin’ just fine now / And I think I’ve finally figured you out / Well it took me oh so so long / But I’ve finally made peace with being alone / So I think that you should know this / That girl I took notice / On how you were behavin’ / And to say that it was quite unattractive / Would be this year’s / Biggest understatement / It’s the biggest understatement / So I’m letting you know now / That I’m letting you go now / And there’s no need to worry / You’ll be fine without me / Let’s go boys / So I’m letting you know now / That I’m letting you go now / And there’s no need to worry / You’ll be just fine without me

And on one hand / I’ve been happier than I’ve ever been / And I don’t I don’t know if I’ll ever find this again / But on the other hand / I think I might have lost the best of friends / And I don’t I don’t know / If I left them for what could have been / Could have been / Cause I’ve been thinkin’ / Well that I need a vacation / From all of these thoughts in my head / And all these falling sensations / Alright / But I don’t even know / What I’m suppose to do / And I don’t know how to let myself get over you / On the other hand / I think I might have made the best of friends / Cause we’ve been shouting 1, 2, 3, 4 / I’ve been yelling from across the floor / Cross the floor / Cause I’ve been thinkin’ / Well that I need a vacation / From all of these thoughts in my head / And all these falling sensations / Cause I’ve been thinkin’ / (Cause I’ve been thinkin’) / Well that I need a vacation / (Well I need a vacation) / From all of these thoughts in my head / (Cause they won’t stop) / And all these falling sensations / (Cause I won’t stop ‘till I drop) / Well I’ve been, I’ve been thinkin’ / That I do too much thinkin’ / I’m keepin’ myself up at night / I’m wondering what’s going through your mind / I’ll call you when I’m good and ready

Stop right there / Don’t say another word / It’s all been said before / So the story goes / It’s all been heard before / Because no body wants to die alone / Do you really think that you’re the only one / Who feel like this? / You’re not the only one / Cause in the end it doesn’t matter who you are / We’re all just dying to live / Because no body wants to die alone / I hope you told the ones you love you loved them / Because no one knows when it’s gonna end / I hope you told the ones you love you loved them / (I hope you told the ones you love) / Because no one knows when it’s gonna end / (No one knows the end) / Cause no body wants to die alone / I don’t want to die all alone / Stop right there / Don’t say another word

I’ve been watching / I’ve been watching who you’re talking to / And I’m sure that you’ve been doing things you shouldn’t do / But I won’t call you I wont call you on all your lies / Cause they come to me they come to me with no surprise / What you need is to feel alive / And all I need is to get you by / Well I know who you’ve been talking about / And all those things that you do with anybody who will listen to you / And I’m done with all of these games / Cause all these games that we play only end up causing me pain such pain / You’ve got me got me all wrong / You’ve got me got me ‘till the end of this song / Well I’ve been drinkin’ got me thinkin’ about you girl / And I know that it is too late to be calling girl / You’re probably out with all your little boys / But that doesn’t mean my girls can’t make a little noise / What you need is to feel alive / And all I need is to get you by / Well I know who you’ve been talking about / And all those things that you do with anybody who will listen to you / And I’m done with all of these games / Cause all these games that we play only end up causing me pain such pain / You’ve got me got me all wrong / You’ve got me got me ‘till the end of this song / So why don’t you just go / Somewhere we don’t know? / And you’re never gonna see this face again / No, you’re never gonna see this face again / I assure you / Hey love are you out there / Are you listening to my songs / Well I know who you’ve been talking about / And all those things that you do with anybody who will listen to you / And I’m done with all of these games / Cause all these games that we play only end up causing me pain such pain / You’ve got me got me all wrong / You’ve got me got me ‘till the end of this song

Well I was standing there / Standing by the door / And baby that’s when my eyes they met yours / And I knew it had to be / Quite the sight to see / With you / Cause it’s you / I’ve been waiting for / I’ve been waiting all my life / For someone like you / And baby I know it sounds crazy / But I’m thinkin’ that it’s you / And I was coming in / And you said I could come in / And baby that’s when baby then I knew / That it was gonna be / Quite the fantasy with you / And nothing else would do / Cause it’s you / I’ve been waiting for / I’ve been waiting all my life / For someone like you / And baby I know it sounds crazy / But I’m thinkin’ that it’s you / I’m waiting / You’re waiting / We’re waiting / We’ll always be waiting won’t we? / Cause it’s you / I’ve been waiting for / I’ve been waiting all my life / For someone like you / And baby I know it sounds crazy / But I’m thinkin’ that it’s you / And people well they’ll call us crazy / And maybe just maybe it’s crazy / But I’m thinkin’ that it’s you

Not Blaming California

Written By: My Hidden Track

Well I wait for songs to change my life / To convey what I’m trying to say / Cause my words never come out right / I never say what I’m trying to say / So I’m still waiting for songs to change my life / I never say what I’m trying to say / Cause my words never come out right / So I close my eyes and I sang real loud / Out came a beautiful chorus / That when we’re together holding hands / No one in this whole wide world could stop us / Well somewhere between Los Angeles and Texas / I started thinkin’ of the answers to questions / Cause girl I just got so many questions / Like “Was it all my fault? Did I love her too much?” / “Was I too far away? Did I not try enough?” / But no, it’s not your fault / Nick you loved her just fine / But I was far away, but lord knows I tried / So I close my eyes and I sang real loud / Out came a beautiful chorus / That when we’re together holding hands / No one in this whole wide world could stop us / I want to thank you / For each night that I did not sleep / Waiting for you to call me / They say what doesn’t kill you makes your stronger / And gives you hope to hold on longer / And I’m not blaming California on this one anymore / And I want to thank you / For each night that I did not sleep / Waiting for you to call me / They say what doesn’t kill you makes your stronger / And gives you hope to hold on longer / I gotta hold on longer / And I’m not blaming California on this one anymore
