hard Rock with a dark Roll. A monstrous voice, evil guitar, penetrating lyrics and Mephistophelian humour unlocking the demons within.

Biography

Toronto Canada’s most tweaked group of lunatics Sex Without Souls’ mix of hard rock, humour and intense stage presence can always be counted on to deliver. In the past they’ve turned stages into castles, butchered the Nutcracker Suite, breathed fire, burlesqued, undressed, and distressed.

Named by a thirteen year old Boy Scout in the Black Forest of Germany, Sex Without Souls’ powerful rock with a dark twist, intelligent lyrics, outlandish stage performance and undeniable star power is the musical bomb exploding over the Toronto Club Scene.

The explosion that bears their name was launched with an 8 song DEMO EP, followed by a series of wild and popular gigs that took Toronto audiences by storm. 2001 saw the release of their full length CD “R.I.P.”, an album that solidified their place in the hearts of an ever growing fan base and put Sex Without Souls on the music industry radar. Front man Brendan “Bane specializes in bringing demons out of the closet and into our lives for scrutiny”. Michelle Greene, The Newspaper.

“Our live shows engage and excite the audience. It is our job to entertain and alter people’s moods. Even though we have a flair for the dramatic, we keep ourselves real - not cool. Call it high art that is consumable.” Brendan Bane (Lead VOX)

Sex Without Souls has been driving their career in classic DIY style. Tired of being Toronto’s best kept secret, Sex Without Souls has ripped from their own souls the greatly anticipated release “Unrepentant”, with the commitment to infect legions across unexplored territories.

With management currently in the UK breaking new ground, a stage show that takes no prisoners, and the drive and talent to make it all happen; Sex Without Souls will not be overlooked!!

...one of Toronto’s foremost independent acts.

In a Ditch

In a Ditch
(Music: Bane, Black, Devil, Fur,
Lyrics: Bane)

Had a thought just the other day.
It left me feelin’ kinda strange.
“If life’s asleep then I’m its snore.”
Don’t wanna live this way no more.
Decided then that I’d go away.
Just left it all behind that day.
I put the metal to the floor.
You should have heard my engine roar!

And there’s a place called Mexico.
And I can get there all alone.
And I can have a dirty wish.
And you can find me in a ditch!
In a ditch. X4

Pulled up in some desert town,
While all the stores were closing down.
Matamoras seemed okay.
I sold my car so I could stay.
Bought about a thousand rounds.
Drank so much that I thought I’d drown.
Mas Cervesa senior, I’m okay.
If I should fall just let me lay.

And there’s a place called Mexico.
And I can get there all alone.
And I can have a dirty wish.
And you can find me in a ditch!
In a ditch. X4

Tequila sunrise came too soon.
One more Corona then we’ll sleep ‘till noon.
Woke up naked, don’t know why.
Some seniorita sleepin’ by my side!
Life is simple. Life is good.
I wouldn’t change it if I could.
Damn that Mariachi band can play!
I can’t remember yesterday!

And there’s a place called Mexico.
And I can get there all alone.
And I can have a dirty wish.
And you can find me in a ditch!
In a ditch. X4

Burn

Written By: Brendan Bane, Matte Black

Burn
(Music: Bane, Black
Lyrics: Bane)

Sorcerers express,
The need to wear a long black dress.
And the girls who know that best.
Think it’s kind of sexy when a guy looks like their girlfriend.
You know I need.
A sorceress right next to me.
I don’t think that it’s you.
Pack your bags I think we’re through and…

Burn witch, turn witch,
Gimme a, Gimme another one.
Gimme another one I wanna have some fun.
My turn, I burn, someone cut out my tongue.
Someone caught the rabbit,
Now the damage is done.

Call it a disease,
But I’m always hungry, hard to please.
So if you’ll get on your knees…
I’ll tell you that I love you and I’ll keep you there forever!

I’m in control.
You’re addicted, you feel whole.
And you’re so hard to please.
Let’s break your heart and watch it bleed!

(Chorus)

Pick your head up. Up high.
Never let ‘em know you feel those flames.
Never let ‘em know that you feel sorrow,
Not gonna see another tomorrow.
So, Pick your head up. Up high.
Never let ‘em know you feel ashamed.
Never let ‘em know that you feel hollow. X 2

Burn! X 2

So just like the rest.
You look more jaded than distressed.
And I must say I confess.
I never knew I’d love you but I always knew I’d leave you.
I’m in control.
You’re addicted you feel whole.
And I’m so hard to please.
Let’s break my heart and watch it bleed.

(Chorus)

Tease

Written By: Sex Without Souls

Tease
(Music: Bane/Black/ Lyrics: Bane)

What she had in mind's not what she had to say
But she opened up her mouth and she said it anyway
Looked me in the eyes and she told me all her lies, like she loved me

Ran up to my room and we lay upon the floor
And she started looking nervous 'cuz she knew I wanted more
Can't control the urge, and I feel I'm on the verge. Does she love me

I can't stand anything she does to me
And I can't stand living with no sympathy
And I can't stand it, no, no I can't stand it

What she couldn't know, is what I had in mind
I'd been keepin' secrets I'd reveal to her in time
Only time would tell if she'd free me from my hell, and if she loved me

So I told a couple truths, I told a couple lies
I continued to deceive her as I looked her in the eyes
Never been a friend and she'll know that in the end, if she loves me

I can't stand anything she does to me
And I can't stand living with no sympathy
And I can't stand it, no, no I can't stand it

In the midnight hours I would steal her flowers
Crawl inside her bed. Try to get inside her head. X2

What she couldn't know is what was on my mind
I only needed worship and they say that "Love is blind"
I took her to my bed, put visions in her head, until she loved me

So she'll want to die, shed a couple tears
Blame herself for thinking that she ever could get near
She'll hate me in the end 'cuz I've never been her friend, and now she loves me

And I can't stand!
