With the Flashing lights, gnarly screams, aggressive drums, melodic harmonies, and mind blowing riffs the energy rides heavy for Sixgun Serenade. SGS, conceived in Amarillo TX, is a passionate five piece metal/metalcore band embraced by Cody Roye- vocals, Justin Werner- guitar, Stephen Loftin- guitar, Cody Blevins- bass and Justin Hendrix- drums. SGS is driven by a desire to create quality music, passion, goals, and new musical ideas. “Our local scene is diminishing, we want people to know that there is a breath of fresh air out there.” Said, Loftin. SGS plans to bring new creations to not just their regional scene but all over.

Sixgun Serenade is now supporting their newest, heavy, hasty, in-your-face LP album, Avenue of the Giants, recorded in Eureka, CA and produced by Tim Kennon Jr. at White Light Audio. It’s an album full of speed, catchy riffs, and daring lyrics. It has everything, from its melodic zing to its powerful seize and songs that crush in a live setting. Every drop of sweat, every late night session and every sacrifice was dropped on this album. The LP is available on Amazon MP3, iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, Zune, Spotify and various others sites along with recently being accepted to play on Pandora Radio, things are rolling now!

The debut EP "Of Darkness and Light", was produced by Alex Gerst, of Indian Trails Studio near Denton, TX. This record ultimately got them the attention needed to ink a deal with indie label Dark Slate Records based out of Columbus, OH.

Sixgun Serenade has been together for six years with the current members. A close family is what these guys are. Not a coincidence but something meant to be. They have preformed consistently in areas such as: Amarillo, Abilene, Dallas, Lubbock, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, and plan to be taking over many more cities to come! SGS has shared the stage with bands like, Memphis Mayfire, Of Mice and Men, We Came as Romans, The Word Alive, Attack Attack, Smile Empty Soul, Oh Sleeper, Bobaflex, Attila, Straight Line Stitch, Otep, Fear Factory, and For All Those Sleeping. If you ask what do these guys sound like? Anyone can come up with five different bands, and many different genres because opinions vary, but ultimately SGS has a sound of their own, “If you label yourselves you limit yourselves and you’re held to that” said, SGS. Just check out the music for yourself.

Between the intense lights, haunting screams, pounding beats and battling riffs, you’ll become a fan. If you're looking for a high energy, unforgettable, neck snapping performance get your ass to an Sixgun show! It’s anything but boring. It’s all about the performance... the time where the band captivates the crowd and creates a connection where the band and the audience become one.

Lyrics

Save Yourself

Written By: Sixgun Serenade

Are you able? Do you even care?
I don’t know you. What are you doing here?
Can you remember, not so long ago
When we were happy, where did those days go?

No!--- Don’t stop save yourself
Oh!--- A better chance with someone else
No!--- it’s too late it’s too far gone
Oh!--- But move fast cause here it comes!

Now just you wait, (wait),
Why would you hesitate?
Could it really be my fate?
And how could this be the end that I helped instigate?

Never!(Never)
Never have I been so wrong (wrong)
Never have I been so blind (blind)
And never have I been so lost and out of time!
You can’t save me
Can’t change me
Can’t take away the past
My enchanted fixation
The sunset of my forecast!
No!--- Don’t stop save yourself
Oh!--- A better chance with someone else
No!--- it’s too late it’s too far gone
Oh!--- But move fast cause here it comes!

Don’t stop save yourself!
Don’t stop save yourself!
Don’t stop save yourself!
Don’t stop save your----!
You can’t save me
You Can’t change me
You can’t save me
You Can’t change me

No!--- Don’t stop save yourself
Oh!--- A better chance with someone else
No!--- it’s too late it’s too far gone
Oh!--- But move fast cause here it comes!

Masquerade

Written By: Sixgun Serenade


All your life, your so misleading why?
Why you cry? We won’t live your lie
Under broken stars I’ll fly, while I’m bleeding -I-
I’m so misleading, why? We’re so misleading!

Masquerade
Never mind the price
Games we play
The truth is twice as nice
This Masquerade
We’re living in disguise
LIVING IN DISGUISE!

Peeling back the skin, revealing what’s with in
Please remove your mask, expose the lines of your past
Never mind the price, I see through your eyes
We’re all living in disguise and so misleading!

Masquerade
Never mind the price
Games we play
The truth is twice as nice
This Masquerade
We’re living in disguise
LIVING IN DISGUISE!

All your life, your so misleading why?
Why you cry? We won’t live your lie

Why, Lie, Why, Lie……Why-----
Why, Lie, Why, Lie…….Lie------

Masquerade
We’re living in disguise
LIVING IN DISGUISE!

Fortunate Vessels

Written By: Sixgun Serenade

Rejecting consciousness
it's all inside of my head
we're loosing control
we're loosing control!
Don't stop, don't quit
we wont abandon ship
horizons closing in
this blazing fire's lit
Attack! Attack!!
You fight, we fight back
Resist! Defy!
This flag will never die!
Lift your hands up to the sky
Don't you ever say goodbye
Lift your hands up to the sky
Don't you ever say,ever say,ever say
Goodbye
Now throw your hands up to the sky!
Fortunate vessels will survive
on an ocean deep and wide
Victory Cry! Let the angels sing
absolute bliss they shall bring
sailing the seas of the shadow of death
were gonna fight till there is nothing left
now mark my words as I pound on my chest
look to the sky and forsake all the rest
Lift your hands up to the sky
Don't you ever say goodbye
Lift your hands up to the sky
Don't you ever say,ever say,ever say
Goodbye
are you gonna sink? are you gonna swim?
sailing the seas of the shadow of death
were gonna fight till there is nothing left
now mark my words as I pound on my chest
look to the sky and forsake all the rest!
