High energy, melody driven rock.

Biography

style over substance is a band born from necessity. The simple need to express is the underlining principle that drives the group. What started out as an idea in lead singer Jared Farrells basement, quickly spiraled into a realistic project hard working driven musicians. Within a few months of the group had managed to release a 4 song EP and consistently pack every venue they played. No doubt that this bands music will become as necessary for the public to hear as it is for the members to play.

Lyrics

12 boards

Written By: Jared Farrell

battleground on which you found
your heart a memory
arches bleed with thoughtless greed
iceberg catastrophe
all these arms are pulling puppet strings
and I¡¯m dancing
nothing new stuck within this plastic tube
with you it¡¯s true

I feel like I¡¯m as light as a feather tonight
tonight I wave goodbye
to being tied down to 12 heavy boards we¡¯ll call time
time and time again

cocoon....you know that you¡¯ll live in it
salute to the battle drum men inside your head
you fool....you know that you¡¯ll ruin it
stay tuned for an episode rerun once again

this never seems to end
but hell with this

falling at your feet
I see the wall falling brick by brick
I¡¯m so caught up in this here

Conscious Caravan

Written By: Jared Farrell

Her eyes
tongue tied
fault lines to quakes

no sign
don¡¯t mind
she is worth the wait

all the times we spent together
all the lies and stormy weather
come with me and say whatever
leave it all behind

it tears me down
it wears me out
I fall but you pick me up again
never felt so alone
like the times that you were gone
closer and closer again

now her calls to me they are
few and far between
doesn¡¯t help to kill myself
wake up in the street

I never wanted this
I need another chance
I never wanted this to end like this

it tears me down
it wears me out
I fall but you pick me up again
never felt so alone
like the times that you were gone
closer and closer again

I know you¡¯re giving up, I know you¡¯re signing off
just come back home.
