Biography

SOLDIER are rising…
It hasn’t taken long for the Birmingham five piece to established themselves as a major force on the national unsigned circuit. With credible support slots with respected past and current selling artists such as Athlete, The Datsuns, Viva Brother, The Brute Chorus, Steve Cradock and Guillemots, they are causing a stir in the second city with their melodic, stadium-esque anthems and downright dirty grooves. But it doesn't stop there.
Their releases of ‘Lifeline’ and 'We Love You' gained radio play on BBC Introducing... and Kerrang! Radio which has kick-started an ever increasing following which gets larger with every gig. And why do they come...? Every song has been crafted, nurtured and battered into what we like to think of "Maximum Delivery" ensuring the instantaneous hooks, ever familiar riffs and the passionate razor sharp vocals are drilled into the listeners psyche making every track a standout. Live sets see's SOLDIER explode into a primal celebration putting indie-guitar music back to the top of the agenda and giving the punters a sense of relief and euphoria that hasn't been tainted by the manufactured sea of mediocrity... just ask Birmingham, Camden Town, Manchester, Liverpool ect... ! Solid musically, tantalising creatively and captivating visually, these really should be the biggest band of the next 10 years. Standard.

Lyrics

Horizon

Written By: Paul Richards (Soldier)

I don't wanna be alone on a night like this
Come over my side of town and share my gift
And breathe some fire in my soul
Come on girl lets go
Horizon's the name of the game
Horizon will never be the same
Let's draw new lines cross the sun

Read between the lines I'll steal her love
Actions louder than words, I'll knock on her wood
She got flare, she got style, she got soul
Come on girl lets go
Horizon's the name of the game
Horizon will never be the same
Let's draw new lines cross the sun

See no reason to turn it down
Throwing caution to the wind
Takes me through the dark and into the night
Right across the line where the earth meets the sky
We see, we come, horizon

Break the ice, cast the stone
Blaze the trail, go for gold...

Quick Fix To Sanity

Written By: Paul Richards (Soldier)

Quick fix to sanity, we're breaking out of here
These four wall are closing down on me
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight we will collide
Tomorrow we'll survive, cause we're breaking out
Oh..

Been going out my mind and climbing up the walls
I'm paying attention, I need a direction, take me out take me out
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight we will collide
Tomorrow we'll survive, cause we're breaking out

Kick up and fight the feeling
Tasting the freedom
Breaking out, we're breaking out of here
Oh...

Frozen, invisible, lost inside a maze
I need a new light, find me a new light, turn it on, turn it on
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight we will collide
Tomorrow we'll survive, cause we're breaking out

Quick fix to sanity yeah, quick fix to sanity yeah....

We Love You

Written By: Paul Richards (Soldier)

Go fly discover that your secrets in your hand, and you will understand
So believe, recover from defeat and you will learn and you will understand
But if you fall and you fear, we can pull you clear...

We love you, we love you, we love you yeah we do
We love you come home soon..

Go try, find your feet but walk before you run, and you will overcome
So believe, learn from your mistakes and you will know, what makes you come undone
But if you fall and you fear, we can pull you clear..

We love you, we love you, we love you yeah we do...

Hide, run n fight, seize the day
Laugh, cry, cheat and play
We will pick you the pieces for you...
