Pistol Resistance is a four piece original rock band consisting of veterans of the CT music scene. Having played in bands for over 10 years that have toured the USA, Pistol Resistance is ready to spread its unique brand of melodic rock to the world.

Biography

With the force of a powerful Hurricane, Pistol Resistance burst onto the Northeastern music scene in early 2006. Bending the laws of music into their own unique shape and drawing on influences from Beethoven to Black Flag, Pistol Resistance's live shows pack a raw unique brand of energy that has to be seen to be appreciated. In 2007, they released a 6 song EP entitled, "High School Football Rules." This release was produced by the talented Justin Pizzoferrato shortly after he completed engineering work on Dinosaur Jr.'s latest LP, "Beyond." Currently Pistol Resistance is working on material for an LP of their own, which will prove to be their most mature and diverse release to date.

Lyrics

Dutch Rules

Written By: Pistol Resistance

My friend just called me back today
He never used to be that way
I saw him just the other day when he told me about his predicament
And I believe him
Why shouldn't I believe you
We've been everywhere
It makes sense to care
My friend can help me find my way
Look at what I have done already
I may see him in a few days if he helps me with my predicament
And I believe him
So why shouldn't I believe in me
We've been everywhere
It makes sense to care

Weird City

Written By: Pistol Resistance

I enjoy the weekend
It is real to me
Makes me happy
I enjoy the...
Music makes the world go 'round
Many cultures enjoy sound
Problems are never around as soon as you've found...
Music
Heal the world with music
I enjoy the bar
It is real to me
Makes me happy
But not as much as...

I'm Alright

Written By: Pistol Resistance

Head in the clouds
Or into what's around
Does it matter what
It's always not good enough
Live in the ground
Or live with maids around
Does it matter what
It's always not good enough
If you see me falling down, I'm alright
For it's just another bump in the ride
Making new sounds
Or faking it from what's already around
Does it matter what
It's always not good enough
Making the rounds
Or laying in wait cause there's nothing around
Does it matter what
It's always not good enough
So I won't just throw it all away
And die an unhappy wreck
Cause I don't know the path I'm going to take but I want to see

Limbo

Written By: Pistol Resistance

We're living in limbo
Without a thing to say
We're living in limbo
So sit silently and think of a way
To rid yourself of the decay
We're living in limbo
Without a thing to lose
We're living in limbo
With something to gain
Until it's taken away
I want this time to be over
Free up my mind drunk or sober
Limbo lower
We're living in limbo
Though we are on our way
We're living in limbo
But we move on
Getting closer with every song

Land of Opportunity

Written By: Pistol Resistance

In the land of opportunity your wishes will come true
So they say
So where's mine
I can see that they are telling lies
Playing on your feet is hard when you're used to sitting down
I need the right pair of crutches
Someone to hold in my clutches
I can see the omen of the falling raindrops in my eyes
