They launched their debut album “Don’t Sellout” in 2007. This album featured their first official single “Don’t Sellout”.

Their music is a mix of modern and alternative rock. Their songs speak of their experiences as well as those of others around them: Love and hate, deception and truth, sex, happiness and sorrow, hope and despair.

Faceless
POSTED BY: radioindy POSTED ON: 23 Apr 2012 08:33 PM
“Faceless” is the recently released Alternative Rock CD by the talented group Ninecircus. This album is comprised of songs that are splashed with a dynamic balance and a rich, consistent sound. Opening up the CD, the song, “Immortality,” is steeped with hypnotic vocals that are surrounded by crunchy guitar. Another track, “Beautiful Mistake,” has a softer feel but still carries an edgy attitude as the searing guitar adds an electrifying appeal. “Love Alert,” is an irresistible song with a melodic melody and charming vocals. You will find this album has an upbeat and vibrant tonality that is set to thought provoking lyrics. If you like Kings of Leon or U2 then you will find the fabulous collection of songs on the excellent album, “Faceless,” well worth listening to.

Matchbox Radio

The band is from Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, and cites bands like Creed, Matchbox 20 and Pearl Jam as their major influences. Lead vocalist Eliseo Alba certainly has that exact gritty vocal style and in Don’t Sell Out they have penned a swaggering ballade with all the anthemic trimmings that you’d expect from such a pedigree. They also manage to pull the sound off immaculately, delivering an upfront and powerful track that will swell the hearts of rock ballade fans with passion. "Powerfully produced Radio rock with a melodic punch" – Dave Chislett-Matchbox Radio 24.

Lyrics

DON'T SELLOUT

Written By: Eliseo Alba

I THINK ABOUT IT ALL DAY
I SEEM TO TARE MYESELF IN TOO MANY EMOTIONS
I HEAR YOU CRYING ALL DAY
I HEAR YOU CALLING BUT I CAN´T SEEM TO MAKE WORDS OUT

I SEE YOU HIDING ALL DAY
I KNOW MISS ME BUT I CAN´T SEEM TO MAKE YOU NOTICE
SEEMS LIKE THERE´S NEVER A DAY
IN WHICH I TELL YOU THAT I LIVE FOR YOU EVERY MOMENT

SEEMS LIKE IT’S NEVER OK
YOU´LL HAVE TO BREAK YOUR WALL THEN
I JKNOW ITS THE ONLY WAY

RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE THE BEST OF ME
RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU LIE NEXT TO ME
RIGHT NOW IF YOU´RE IN LOVE WITH ME
DON´T SELLOUT, DON´T SELLOUT, DON´T SELLOUT
ON LOVE

I SEE YOU HIDING ALL DAY
I KNOW YOU NEED ME BUT I CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE YOU NOTICE
I FEEL YOUR SLIDING AWAY
PLEASE LET HELP YOU TAKE YOU BACK TO WHERE YOU BELONG THEN

SEEMS LIKE ITS NEVER OK
I GUESS YOU’LL FIND YOUR OWN WAY
I KNOW ITS THE ONLY WAY

RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE THE BEST OF ME
RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU LIE NEXT TO ME
RIGHT NOW IF YOU´RE IN LOVE WITH ME
DON´T SELLOUT, DON´T SELLOUT, DON´T SELLOUT
ON LOVE

KEROSENE

Written By: ELISEO ALBA

I caught a glimpse of Kerosene
She’s lightning magic on the scene
They say she’s lived a thousand dreams
Inside the world of a gypsy queen

Caught in the glare of Kerosene
She’s seamless like the tide itself
I’ve tried so hard to read her flames
Their burning bridges inside my head

You took on the wrong side
Take on the right side
Flip it reverse it
Show him you feel now

Kerosene stay on me
I know what you wanna be
Kerosene sing for me
I know what you wanna be

I found a temple in the sound
Of her own voices on the ground
But nothing seems to drown the
Lightning magic I found in her sounds

You took on the wrong side
Take on the right side
Flip it reverse it
Show him you feel now

Kerosene stay on me
I know what you wanna be
Kerosene sing for me
I know what you wanna be

When your gone, somethings wrong
When your gone, somethings wrong

Take on the wrong side
Take on the right side
Flip it reverse it
Show him you feel now

Kerosene stay on me
I know what you wanna be
Kerosene sing for me
I know what you want

What you want from me
kerosene

TUESDAYS

Written By: Eliseo Alba

Save me, won’t you save from myself so that I can feel you
Take me, won’t you take somewhere else so that I can Breath you
Breath in, won’t you breath in so that I can only now feel you
And you know there’s nowhere else that I’ll be then

Cause I know that she’s leaving
On flight number 8510
Arrive then

Cause Tuesdays are better
When I’m around with you
Cause something is changing
When I’m around with right now

Breath in, won’t you breath in so that I can only now feel you
And you know there’s nowhere else that I’ll be then

Cause I know that she’s leaving
On flight number 8510
Arrive then
Cause lately

My Tuesdays are better
When I’m around with you
Well something is changing
When I’m around with right now

Cause I know that she’s leaving
On flight number 8510
Arrive then

Save me, won’t you save me from myself so that I can only now
Feel you

Cause lately

My Tuesdays are better
When I’m around with you
Well something is changing
When I’m around with right now

Right Now
I want you back (Repeat)

SPEAK

Written By: ELISEO ALBA

VERSE
SHE’S WEARING HER WHITE DRESS
IN THE RAIN IN TIME SQUARE
SHE PICKS UP HER CELL PHONE THEN
AND SHE’S SCREAMS AT ME TO

PRE CHORUS

SPEAK
SPEAK
SAY SOMETHING SWEET
OH WONT YOU SPEAK

CHORUS

ALL THOSE THINGS I WANTED TO SAY
DIDN’T SEEM TO COME OUT THE RIGHT WAY
THESE WORDS HAVE BEEN TOO EASY TO SAY
I’VE NEVER BEEN SO CLOSE TO ANYBODY THIS WAY

POST CHORUS
AND TODAY
I MISS YOUR SCENT ON MY PILLOW
I MISS THE WAY THAT YOU FEEL HOME

VERSE
WELL SHE’S LIVING WITH REGRET
CAUSE SHE SCREWD UP AGAIN
I CAN TELL SHE’S BEEN DRINKING AND
SHE’S CRASHING IN TO

PRE CHORUS
SPEAK

SAY SOMETHING SWEET
OH WONT YOU SPEAK

LOVE ALERT

Written By: ELISEO ALBA

LOVE ALERT

VERSE
You know when you start to care
When you stare at your phone wishing it would ring
You know you’re in trouble deep
When you lose control over what you feel

PRE CHORUS
Then you start to need
so you start to cling
We all run away
From all those that chase

CHORUS
Didn’t mean to call you twice
Maybe once was enough to try
Didn’t mean to complement
You are beautiful, 20 times a day

POST CHORUS
It’s a love alert

VERSE
They say there’s no sanity
When you start to behave so illogically
They tell you not to show
What you feel or your lover might let you go

PRE CHORUS
So you play the game
Teasing all you can
Never let them in
The heart
Will never break

CHORUS
Didn’t mean to call you twice
Maybe once was enough to try
Didn’t mean to complement
You are beautiful, 20 times a day

POST CHORUS
It’s a love alert

SOLO

CHORUS

Didn’t mean to call you twice
Maybe once would have been enough to try
Didn’t mean to complement
You are beautiful, 20 times a day

Didn’t mean to show then
What I felt, can I take it back
And I promise not say
You are beautiful, 20 times a day

POST CHORUS
It’s a love alert
