Biography

About Spinstill…

Take a coin from the pocket…
Stand it on end…
Place a finger atop…
Steady now…
Flick the edge and observe…
As it twists and turns and whirls about.

The same principles can be applied to Spinstill and their music. How it twists with dynamic hooks and groove-laden rhythms. How it turns from intense heaviness to emotional acoustic intensity. And how they whirl listeners about by taking them from calm subdued melodies to fierce aggressive passion.

Winding the fibers of their diverse and varied musical backgrounds, this foursome creates inspiring music into the scene of mainstream hard rock. September 2007 marks the most solidified line-up in the bands five year history to date as the new members each bring a wealth of knowledge and credentials to the proverbial table. Founding member and vocalist Chad Newman is joined by Paul Charlebois (guitar), his long-time friend Brandon Dekok (drums) and newcomer Tom Evans (bass). This melodic modern alternative rock band, based in the Kitchener / Waterloo region, are known for their high energy shows, playing alongside the likes of Social Code, Attack in Black, The Black Maria and Flatlined.

With a recently recorded 4-song EP, Spinstill is currently writing new material and planning to head into the studio in early in 2008. The next step for Spinstill is to build an online presence and create the buzz that will make the hair on your arms stand at attention and beg for more.

With the momentum building, Spinstill will be ready for the flick of the next coin.

Lyrics

Vanish

Written By: P. Charlebois, C. Newman, B. Dekok, T. Evans


Rise up in me and I can't believe
It's just a dream are we pretending?
You're all up in my mind
You're all I breathe
And for a while you looked at me
Until the sun stops shining
Would you care if I had to leave?

Digging deep within me, I could see this coming
All this time you were left wanting something
More from me honestly, I can give you nothing
‘Cause I've already given
All of me

The downfall with you
Is you can't see through
You're all alone inside this glass room
And you despise your only needs
‘Cause you're my everything
So take your time to redefine
The parts of you that stole my eyes
Would it be easier if I just said goodbye?

Digging deep within me, I could see this coming
All this time you were left wanting something
More from me honestly, I can give you nothing
‘Cause I've already given
All of me

I followed a light that faded so damn long ago
Now I've become so jaded I guess it's time,
Time to let you go

And I vanish
I vanish

Digging deep within me, I could see this coming
All this time you were left wanting something
More from me honestly, I can give you nothing
‘Cause I've already given
All of me

Just Breathe

Written By: P. Charlebois, C. Newman, B. Dekok, T. Evans


I wanna believe once more
I just wanna breathe before
I wake up in your eyes
‘Cuz you took me over

You saved me from myself and I thank you with each breath that I take
And you take away from me
Your eyes say it's ok when there was nothing I could say to you
You’re just so damn beautiful....

Forgetting all the sorrow
I wanna believe in tomorrow
Someone wake me from this dream

I wanna believe once more
I just wanna breathe before
I wake up in your eyes
‘Cuz you took me over

I'm taken from this mess but there's one thing I can't forget when you....
When you walk into the room
Under midnights grace, wish I could tell you what I needed to say to you
You’re just so damn beautiful

Into false impressions...
And out of these indiscretions
Comes a truth I just don't need...

I wanna believe once more
I just wanna breathe before
I wake up in your eyes
‘Cuz you took me over

I tried so hard to let this go, your spell wore off this time
And I could see right through your show, just tell me I'm alright
Tell me why one more time, so I see with my own eyes
To believe, to deceive, I'll scream this one last time....

I wanna believe once more
I just wanna breathe before
I wake up in your eyes
‘Cuz you took me over

Crawling

Written By: P. Charlebois, C. Newman, B. Dekok, T. Evans


I breathe these breaths and take these steps
And it all just went away again
Playing off the way we used to be
The way you used to tell me it's okay
Another Day awaits in silence
And I wanted to believe everything you said
And all you wanted me to be

And I have
Fallen Further from the truth
It's over
Take us back to where we used to feel alive
How did I ever lose the way back to your heart...?
We felt so alive...

Get up and Get Out
Don't wanna hear you
Don't wanna see your doubts
Just tell me what it was you saw in me
All of the times we shared all of our dreams
You make believe it never happened
Now I'm face down on my knees
Begging you to help me out of this and I...
I wanted see you one more time

And I have
Fallen Further from the truth
It's over
Take us back to where we used to feel alive
How did I ever lose the way back to your heart...?
We felt so alive...

I want to see
Who are you I want to believe
In what you see in me
What do you see in me?

Ever since that day I've been searching
I never found a way back to you

And I've
Fallen Further from the truth
It's over
Take us back to where we used to feel alive
How did I ever lose the way back to your heart...?
Your heart was meant for mine
When mine felt so alive...

Shapes

Written By: P. Charlebois, C. Newman, B. Dekok, T. Evans


Here I stand in the middle
looking around this circle again
Nameless Faces all i see
shapeless eyes that follow me
now I feel so alone

but You Can Take These wings
I'll still fly
You will never see this thorugh my eyes
This time I've wasted
close my eyes and count to 10
things we said will never stand
And now I know I'm

Free.... From These Circles
That Cage me and Bind Me
Hold me Please Find Me
And Fight... Through These days
With nothing but fear and the drive
to go on again...

Now I stand on the outside
feeling the pressure fall over me
familier faces I can't see
empty thoughts that burden me
Now I know I'm alone

But You Can Take These wings
I'll still fly
You will never see this thorugh my eyes
This time I've wasted
close my eyes and count to 10
things we said will never stand
And now I know I'm

Once I stand
I'll Find Myself
Stuck in the fear
of the shapes
that surround me
I've lost myself
to nothing
but nothing is something
unreal

Free... from these circles
Free... From these shapes that surround me
free... you can take these wings I'll still fly
