Biography

Superficial Saints is a band all about the fans, reaching for deeper connections between musician and the masses, cultivating a sound that hearkens back to the glory days of rock and roll. Their latest EP produced by Erik Ron, Salvation, demonstrates a return to a time when great music and radio-friendly tunes were not mutually exclusive. Hitting wide on multiple online music venues for free download, Salvation's first single, "For You," foregrounds the band's diverse, solid songwriting skills, wrapping strong vocals and finely tuned guitar sounds around solid keys and thundering percussion.

The five-man band has been gradually garnering a buzz since forming in early 2007, when Poulson gathered the best musicians he'd come across during his time spent rocking the California coast with Rock Kills Kid. He scored an air-tight rhythm section with drummer Jeff Miklaszewski and bassist Carl Raether whose crushing grooves meld seamlessly with keyboardist Ryan Demaree's moody melodies and guitarist Nik Lawhorn's smokin' riffs, which pack the power of rock greats like Slash and Sambora but with an unpretentious subtlety. Put simply, this guy can rock the roof off a club without so much as breaking a sweat beneath his signature pork pie hat. The collaborative dynamic showcased on songs like "Died Young," an obsessive scorcher about losing a fantasy girl to twisted fate, and "The Promise," which highlights the band's vocal harmonies, has been drawing successively drawing bigger and bigger crowds to the band's Southern California shows and has led to sponsorship deals with several rock lifestyle companies from Ernie Ball and Coffin Case to Dirtbag Clothing and Spaun Drums. However, one spin of Salvation, particularly the disc's fiery free-wheelin' climax track "Ride of Your Life," makes it unquestionably clear that these guys spend more time perfecting tight rhythms and solid songs than they do on hair care. Sound engineer Erik Ron and Poulson's decidedly radio-friendly production perfectly captures the essence and raw energy of Superficial Saints' powerhouse live shows with three-minute songs that shake the foundation of popular music while at the same time revitalizing and rebuilding what rock and roll is all about.

In 2009, prepare to get deep with the Superficial Saints.

Lyrics

Ride of Your Life

Written By: Superficial Saints

Get inside and strap yourself in
I'm gonna take you on the ride of your life
It's time to let ourselves go
No turning back we'll leave this town for good
(Oh yeah) We're gone (Oh yeah) It's wrong
Leavin' all those cares behind us baby
(Oh yeah) We're gone (Oh yeah) It's wrong
Leavin' all those cares behind us baby

We want it, we need it
We'll drive this car into the ground
Scream out loud, let it go
No one can ever slow us down
Can never slow us down

Don't close your eyes, trust in me girl
I'm gonna take you on the ride of your life
We're about to let ourselves go
There's no signs of ever slowin' us down
(Oh yeah) We're gone (Oh yeah) It's wrong
Leavin' all those cares behind us baby
(Oh yeah) We're gone (Oh yeah) It's wrong
Leavin' all those cares behind us baby

We want it, we need it
We'll drive this car into the ground
Scream out loud, let it go
No one can ever slow us down
Can never slow us down

Hear Me Out

Written By: Superficial Saints

It's time, it's time we gave it a chance girl
I know, I know I'm unclear and I

I want it I want it now
It's time that you hear me out
I'm crying I'm crying out
Can we start over
Can you hear me
Can't you hear me
Anymore

Falling, falling in this dream wondering
You leave, my mind so stranded, oh

I want it I want it now
It's time that you hear me out
I'm crying I'm crying out
Can we start over
Can you hear me
Can't you hear me
Anymore

(repeat)

For You

Written By: Superficial Saints

(Here I am, there you were
Here I am)

Here I am, there you were
Speechless as I watched you walk away
In my mind, where you'll stay
Giving me hope for another day
In your eyes I see, it's you and me
You keep me waiting and waiting

Say you'll stay, can't go through another day
Make my life, believe it's true
You'll feel the same

I can't deny, I need you here
Watching the world with me side by side
So hear my voice, make this real
I'd live for you 'til the end of time
These hopes and dreams, won't mean a thing
If I can't have you, have you

Say you'll stay, can't go through another day
Make my life, believe it's true
You'll feel the same

It's you, and me
You, and me
You, and me
You, and me

Say you'll stay, can't go through another day
Make my life, believe it's true
You'll feel the same

Died Young

Written By: Superficial Saints

Her smile is bright as sunshine, with eyes as grey as rain
Looking out that window, her days were filled with haze
Her hope had faded fast as she walked out the front door
I dreamt of us together, I wish that I knew more
She's gone I can't believe it
How can I ever love again?

She died young she's never coming back
She died young it's hard to face the fact
She died young, she died young
There'll be no graduation

Collecting words unspoken, remembering those days
I never saw it coming, I'll never be the same
Her hope had faded fast as she walked out the front door
I thought she was an angel, someone I adored
She's gone I can't believe it
How can I ever love again?

She died young she's never coming back
She died young it's hard to face the fact
She died young, she died young
There'll be no graduation
She died young I did all that I could
She died young, wish I understood
She died young, she died young
There'll be no graduation

She wanted piece of mind she said
Wanted nothing more
Wanted nothing more
Now she's in an empty space, a frozen smile upon her face
What can I do now?

She had died young
I thought this was forever

She died young she's never coming back
She died young it's hard to face the fact
She died young, she died young
There'll be no graduation
She died young I did all that I could
She died young, wish I understood
She died young, she died young
There'll be no graduation
