Biography

Of all the natural elements on this planet, fire has long been the most intriguing. Imagery of crisp flames, alive and assertive, striking a chord deep in the mental psyche: forceful, powerful, and uncontainable. Music, like fire, is an irrepressible force that brings out the riotousness in all of us... as does a single song from Something to Burn's debut album.

Powerful sustain and hardcore riffs accentuate the intense underlying rhythm of every track, relating to audiences in a primal accosting of the senses. With acclaimed producer Carlos Villalobos (Filter, National Product) "Something to Burn" has created a near flawless rock record, from the first thunderous explosion of the intro "Raise the Horns" to the last guitar harmonic glissando of "24 kts." Heavy pounding syncopated grooves of songs like "Strain" and "Picture" and the intense emotional pull of "Wires Across the Sky" and "The Wreckage" delivered both with such strong melody and musicality proving this band is a genuine rare find in the rock world today!

Twin brothers Jeff (bass) and Shawn (drums) picked up their instruments at early age influenced by such greats as KISS and Johnny Cash by they’re older siblings. After destroying there hometown clubs in Kansas City looking for the right force to get them to the next level the two decided to move to Los Angeles. That is where they met Jimmy, a transplant from south Florida and a true guitar virtuoso with the same musical dream. The three quickly started honing in on their own unique rhythmic scape and realized it warranted nothing less than the perfect frontman to complete the sound. They found their missing link in Toryn, a truly dynamic and charismatic singer hailing from Alaska .It was the perfect fit, the “Something to Burn” spark was now fully ignited.

Aside from the seamless performance and undoubtedly accomplished musicianship of Something to Burn, any promoter will find a full house of devout fans and an energy that will draw, attracting audiences from miles away with deliberate marketing and creative promotions and simple, hard-core rock n roll.

For your consideration and entertainment, formally offered up as an alternative to playing with matches: Something to Burn.

Lyrics

WIRES ACROSS THE SKY

Written By: -STB-

I'm the only one who ever stopped to let you in.
It don't seem you wanna come in any more..
I've sacrificed so much to please you,
I'm dealt the lesser hand here
I'm the one who wanted so much more..

and these wires across the sky, I feel like I could die
I only want you back...

When I give and you take, 'til there's nothing left
You bring me down, You bring me down,
When I see that your love holds no gaurantee,
You bring me down, you bring me down..

I've always know that you would leave me,
I knew that you'd be gone,
I never thought that you be gone so long
When I'm lying deep inside you, I finally understand that
You're an addiction I can't ignore

and these wires across the sky, I feel like I could die
I only want you back...

When I give and you take, 'til there's nothing left
You bring me down, You bring me down,
When I see that your love holds no gaurantee,
You bring me down, you bring me down.. yeah..

and I won't give up on you
and I won't give up on you
and I won't give up on you

and these wires across the sky, I feel like I could die
I only want you back...

When I give and you take, 'til there's nothing left
You bring me down, You bring me down,
When I see that your love holds no gaurantee,
You bring me down, you bring me down.. yeah

and I won't give up on you
and I won't give up on you

STRAIN

Written By: -STB-

It was autumn.. tricked by love ones you brought him..
a place to fix all his problems..
I remember still

Why drudge it up again? So they can comprehend,
the things they did, they knew were wrong
Rewind it all and then , there's still no happy end
you can't forget, you just move on..

I can see, far enough to find my way
Despite what lies deep down inside,
I can breathe long enough to sustain the day,
and no one will stop me, though I...
I will go on... go on

Calling from down the hall every morning,
have they chose to ignore me?
When can I come home?

Why drudge it up again? So they can comprehend,
the things they did, they knew were wrong
Rewind it all and then , there's still no happy end
you can't forget, you just move on..

I can see, far enough to find my way
Despite what lies deep down inside,
I can breathe long enough to sustain the day,
and no one will stop me, though I...
I feel the strain inside, i feel the strain..

I can see all the faults, and the cracks in the way,
Like in all of the words in the things that you say to me
rewind all the way, tread softly in vain, We'll start over
but not today..

Why drudge it up again? So they can comprehend,
the things they did, they knew were wrong
Rewind it all and then , there's still no happy end,
when things go wrong, you'll be alright.

I can see, far enough to find my way
Despite what lies deep down inside,
I can breathe long enough to sustain the day,
and no one will stop me, though I...
I can breathe.. yes I can breath, I can breathe..
oh yes, I can breathe, I can breathe I can breathe.. but I feel the strain inside..
I will go on

BLEEDING OVER

Written By: STB

I WAS ALWAYS ALONE
NEVER WANTED TO BE
ALWAYS WANTED YOU NEAR
BUT YOU COULD NEVER SEE

FROM BEHIND THE WALLS
NEVER MUTING THE SOUND
TURNED UP THE NOISE
STILL FEEL IT CRASHING DOWN
CRASHING DOWN ON ME

SO SAY GOODBYE
TO ALL YOUR PERFECT MEMORIES
TOO LATE TO CRY
SOON IT WILL BE ALL OVER
SO SAY GOODBYE
TO ALL YOU BURRIED UNDERNEATH
NO MORE LIES
SOON IT WILL BE ALL OVER
LOOK WHO’S SOBER NOW

GIVE ME SOMETHING TO BURN
ALWAYS FINDING THE FIX
I BECAME SO NUMB
RUNNING OUT OF EMPTY

I USED TO BE SO DEAD
MY LIFE WAS FALLING ASLEEP
FEEL IT TINGLING NOW
NOW THE BLOOD IS RUSHING
RUSHING BACK TO ME

SO SAY GOODBYE
TO ALL YOUR PERFECT MEMORIES
TOO LATE TO CRY
SOON IT WILL BE ALL OVER
SO SAY GOODBYE
TO ALL YOU BURRIED UNDERNEATH
NO MORE LIES
SOON IT WILL BE ALL OVER
LOOK WHO’S SOBER NOW

I WAS ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW
AND TIMES I FELT A MILLION MILES AWAY
LIKE A KNIFE CUT INTO MY HEART
ALL I FELT WAS BLEEDING OVER

I COULD DREAM OF THE PERFECT DAY
AND JUST REPLAY IT OVER AND OVER
CANT ESCAPE FROM ALL OF THE
CONSIOUSNESS ,INSIDE ,IM SOBER NOW
SO SOBER NOW

SPADES

Written By: STB

As you breathe lying there..
my conscience creepin' around
The pulse begins to slow
your beginning to drown..
You utter three words I'll live to regret.
but I wont let that upset me now...
No I can't let this get to me now...

"Save Me"
Forgive me when I walked
away in need... you cried

I'm holding nothing back.
This can't be what you wanted.. you needed
and I'll be honest this breaks my heart..
What you wanted.. comes back in spades.

As you lay dying there
I'm chokin' on my supply
Of total sympathy, pity, love, and advice..
Here comes those three words
from the back of my mind
but I can't let this get to me now..
Bury it inside somehow...

"Save Me"
I never meant to walk
away in need.. I tried!

I'm holding nothing back
This can't be what you wanted.. you needed
and I'll be honest this breaks my heart..
What you wanted.. comes back in spades

They're coming now..
Halo'd wings are beating
They're coming now..
Please hear me when I say..
They're coming now..
for a soul they're stealing..
They're all around....

"Please Save Me"
forgive me when I walked
away in need... you cried
"Please Save Me"
I never meant to walk
away in need.. I tried!

I'm holding nothing back
This can't be what you wanted.. you needed
and I'll be honest this breaks my heart..
What you wanted.. comes back in spades

WHEN TRUE LOVE ENDS

Written By: STB

I see how difficult this game
that never ends pretends to be
I feel it's eating me alive
You twist and turn it deep inside
this knife that burns with no distain
and yet the echos ring tonight...

Just clear your throat, the words sting less when interrupted
Go breathe lies upon the ones with blinded minds

Take me to the place our hearts circled 'round
all these voluntary chains.. to
our thought that true love was found..
and then tear and BURN IT OUT!!

The evil smile that comes of thee
commands the adequate refrain
I know what lies behind those dark, dark eyes
I'd scream to warn them all at once
Their only opportunity to save their souls from your desire..

So bite your tongue, the words sting less when interrupted
Go choose any path but here's your end to mine...

Take me to the place our hearts circled 'round
all these voluntary chains.. to
our thought that true love was found..
and then tear and BURN IT OUT!!

Close your eyes.. rest your head.. You'll have your silence when I wake up dead..
Dream for me.. black as night.. Erase me from this prison you call your mind...

Take me to the place our hearts circled 'round
all these voluntary chains.. to
our thought that true love was found..
and then tear and BURN IT OUT!!

DOWN IN FLAMES

Written By: STB

Deep inside
All the colors coming back to me
i never thought I'd see again (in this life)
In your eyes
all the questions seem to disappear
'cept the one that can't explain this fear
I can't hide..

the spinning won't subside (breaking down my sanity)
try to dry the eyes I'm drownin in..

save your words
Hold me now
I'm going down in flames
take the light from your eyes
I'm going down in flames..

Girl i've tried
To leave the world out of my hearts embrace..
No one could ever cast a flame from outside..
I Can't deny
the warmth that lifts me from this darkened pain
forget that it's what's kept me sain all these nights..

the spinning won't subside (breaking down my sanity)
try to dry the eyes I'm drownin in..

save your words
Hold me now
I'm going down in flames
take the light from your eyes
I'm going down in flames..

Dyin' to feel alive again... Awakened eyes.. don't fall from their grace.. I long for a time when I can say "I've reached the clouds.. don't forget what it's taken... " What it's Taken...

save your words
Hold me now
I'm going down in flames
take the light from your eyes
I'm going down in flames..
down in flames..
