Carving out their own niche in today’s rap-rock and nu-metal dominated rock/metal music scene, Pneumyä has developed a unique sound that incorporates both the Alternative Metal influence of the late ‘90s and that of today’s Hardcore.

Biography

Pneumyä (pronounced; new - me - ya) was formed in Dover, DE in the winter of 2001. Since that time, the band has been focused on writing original music that is an extension of each member's styles and influences. This makes for an interesting mix considering the huge range of influences of the individual members. Each member brings forth devotion to the band's music and to each other as a cohesive musical force that really defines who Pneumyä is as a band and the sound of the music they create.

Pneumyä's sound is a combination of crunchy yet dynamic guitar progressions, melodic vibrato-like vocals, and a powerful rhythm section. Somewhere in the gray area between Tool’s Undertow and Jane’s Addiction’s Nothing’s Shocking is where Pneumyä's music lies. Layer emotional and deeply personal lyrics into the mix and it’s undeniable that Pneumyä's sound is genuinely unique.

Looking forward, Pneumyä will continue to push ahead to create music that is reflective of both the band's personality and that of its members. In doing so, they hope to break down musical barriers by going against what is the norm in hopes of opening their listeners minds to something new.

STANDING THIS CLOSE TO BREAK THESE THINGS THAT I CANT TOLERATE IN MY GRASP THESE THINGS THAT I AM HOLDING
BUT THROUGH THIS I KNOW THAT THROUGH THIS A LIFE CAN GROW AND IN THAT ILL LEARN TO DEAL

ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER WALK AWAY
I KNOW WHAT IM NEEDING AND I START TO SEE THE CHANGE
ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER BE WRONG

CHOICES THAT WEVE BEEN MADE LOST IN LIFE THEY FADE AWAY WHAT WE ONCE HAD THOUGHT IS GONE
NOT ENOUGH TO EXIST WE HAVE TO SIT AND REMINISCE ABOUT THE WAY THINGS COULD HAVE GONE

ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER WALK AWAY
I KNOW WHAT IM NEEDING AND I START TO SEE THE CHANGE
ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER BE WRONG

SUCH A SHAME TO THINK WE HAVE TO DIE A LITTLE BIT TO APPRECIATE THIS LIFE WERE LIVING
WE HAVE TO BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT MAKE IT HARD TO WANT TO BREATHE IN THIS WORLD WERE GIVEN

OR WOULD YOU RATHER WATCH IT FADE

ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER WALK AWAY
I KNOW WHAT IM NEEDING AND I START TO SEE THE CHANGE
ON THIS SIDE OF FEELING I COULD NEVER BE WRONG ( X2 )

FEEL THIS ( X2 )

Written By: Pneumya

now I see my former face hiding inside
whats the use you were so lost
inside your own mind could not make out the light
why would you hide from the sun

when I was alone
out on my own
this was my prayer

tuck me away hide me someplace
just let me feel the way that I am
tuck me away in all my disgrace
just let me be real

in time ive learned to stand up tall
reflecting on the things that we have done
but in the beginning there was no such winning for me to believe
all of the time assaulting my mind with what I need

when I was alone
out on my own
this was my prayer

tuck me away hide me someplace
just let me feel the way that I am
tuck me away in all my disgrace
just let me be real

you see id have fallen before id even begun
belief wasn’t something I had to throw around
you know id have failed you before I even started but I know this chance would rise again
and I would rise again and we would rise again
and I would rise again and we would rise again
we would rise again

tuck me away hide me someplace
just let me feel the way that I am
tuck me away in all my disgrace
just let me be real

Broken Lies

Written By: Pneumya

I COULD LIE TO YOU IF YOU ASK ME TOO MAKE THIS ALL GO AWAY
BUT YOU PLAY TOO OR THIS GAME IS THROUGH AND THIS IS WHERE YOULL STAY ( X2 )

BROKEN LIES KEEPING YOU AWAY KEEPING YOU AWAY

I COULD LIE TO YOU IF YOU ASK ME TOO MAKE THIS ALL GO AWAY
BUT YOU PLAY TOO OR THIS GAME IS THROUGH AND THIS IS WHERE YOULL STAY
WHERE YOULL STAY WHERE YOULL STAY BELIEVE IT OR NOT

NO NOT FOR FREE YOUR JUST A CASUALTY OF LIFE OF LOVE AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES BETWEEN
TO KEEP YOU AWAY

KEEPING YOU AWAY( X3 )

BROKEN LIES KEEPING YOU AWAY
