Biography

Press to MECO (me-co) have always possessed an ear for a huge riff and equally gargantuan three-part harmonies, yet anyone familiar with Press to MECO knows not to second guess the next step, a fact reinforced by the themes on the 'Affinity' EP: death of the elderly; indecent secrets; crystal methamphetamine; procrastination; mental illness and cannibalism.

PTM self-released their debut single 'Affinity' in 2013 and the track continues to enjoy on-going UK radio support from Alex Baker - Kerrang!, Sophie K – Team Rock Radio, John Kennedy and Ian Camfield – XFM.

The 'Affinity' EP was released in May 2013 accompanied by their first headline show at Barfly, London. Since then PTM have played a live 'Xposure' session for XFM and made their first appearance on the Red Bull Studios stage at Download Festival. Tipped by XFM as a band to watch in 2014, they were invited back to Download to open the Zippo Encore stage (stage 2) on the middle day of the festival.

Luke, Adam and Lewis have recently completed the recording of their debut album which is set for release in October 2015.



Lyrics

Affinity

Written By: luke caley,adam roffey,lewis williams

Affinity

Watching a lifetime pass me by
Where's my passion gone
(apathy is settling)
All my peers have lost their face
Taken by a slow decay
I'm sure they tried

But when I’m dreaming
Something's awaken in me
and thoughts I’d seemingly
buried deep surface

Chorus

Run while you can now that I have had a taste
Oh what have I become
I can't be the only one
on the earth
In the universe
With this lust

I heard a cry the other day
"show me some compassion"
looking back into your face
I see the light in your eyes fade
As we drift away.

I'm saved by what scared me.
Quickly. . .

Chorus:

Run while you can now that I have had a taste
Oh what have I become
I can't be the only one
on the earth
In the universe
With this lust

In and oddly touching moment
the worst of times are set to end
Never knew I’d find this solace
and acceptance once again.

You've been forsaken today
You've been forsaken and OHHHHHH what a price to pay
Have you lost your way
(Forsaken today)
You've been forsaken and oh what a price to pay.
You've been forsaken today
You've been forsaken and OHHHHHH what a price to pay
Let me lead the way
You've been forsaken and oh what a price to pay.
