Foo Fighters meets AC/DC in a booze-fuelled riff showdown.

Biography

Back in a simpler time there was no indie, no emo, no nu-rave. No post-this, post-that, post-whatever the hell else. There was just riff-laden, ballsy rock ‘n’ roll; huge songs, life-changing gigs and a whole world of noisy, gutsy fun that took people out of their dreary everyday lives and made them feel truly special.

It’s from this effervescent historical well that the UK’s most charismatic young band draw their inspirations. But this is no retro pastiche – these boys are young, hungry and bringing classic rock songwriting flailing and wailing into the 21st century. It’s the Foo Fighters and AC/DC in a booze-fuelled riff showdown.

The past 3 years have seen the guys complete 3 tours of the US including shows at the Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary alongside Bruce Springsteen and the Foo Fighters, the Brit Bus tour which took them 5,000 miles across the Country on an English double decker bus and a headlining show at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel Casino on Halloween night.

Add to this over 120 tour dates in the UK & Europe this past year and a half on their own and w/Shinedown, Hot Leg, Buckcherry, Hinder, Theory of a Deadman & Deep Purple – plus slots at Download & Sonisphere festivals last year – and The Crave have become a powerful and well-oiled machine.

If you didn’t catch The Crave on tour w/Heaven’s Basement or Flyleaf this Spring, see them (dates below) before they fly off for a residency at The Hard Rock Cafe in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for August.

Lyrics

High

Written By: Burnett / Garcia / Keeler / Swann

High

I'm wide awake won't you come
Feel the energy rise
Watch the sun coming up
From the back of our eyes
Feel yourself start to smile
As the day falls in
So close so far

And i
Believe me i get so high
Yeah we get so high

Walk along come around
Make it up as we go
You're not alone in a place that only we could ever know
Show yourself break the shell
Yeah you feel so good
Anywhere we go

And i
Believe me i get so high
Yeah we get so high

Don't say you need to go back
Just stay
These are the days that we make

And i
Believe me i get so high
Yeah we get so high

These are the days that we make
These are the days that we'll take

Breaking The Silence

Written By: Burnett / Evans / Garcia / Swann

Breaking The Silence

With no direction
Money too tight to mention
We fight for something
We work for nothing
We are defected
A disconnected line
We're going under
We won't surrender

We are we are blood
We are the fallen soldier
We are we are the ones you ignore
We are taking back
We're only screaming louder
We are we are breaking the silence

Send out a warning shot
Come show me what you've got
Mirror your rejection
Now a hero in reflection
We're growing older
Not looking over my shoulder
Soon i'll be walking free
I'll be the king of me

We are we are blood
We are the fallen soldier
We are we are the ones you ignore
We are taking back
We're only screaming louder
We are we are breaking the silence

I will not be pushed
I will not be wrong
I will not be afraid
I will not live this way

Something Beautiful

Written By: Burnett / Evans / Garcia / Swann

Something Beautiful


You’re so predictable
Stand high on your pedestal
Keep me on a leash and take me home
Like the freak broke free from the stage
You’re Jekkyl and Hyde and you’re outta your cage
Not thinking about love as I look in her face
That little pretty girl she's a mother disgrace

I made up my mind
I won’t be going home this time
You’re so vain but you’re right
So beautiful on the outside
You’re tainted and cruel
You treat me like your fool
Jumping out of my head
Going out of this mind
Give me this love, give me something beautiful

So we leave town for a couple of days
Catch a ride on a runaway train
We’ll get dizzy and we'll fly away
She's like the sun breaking out of the rain
A fine wine but a cheap champagne
Her steady lips said again and again
But i take my time all over you

I made up my mind
I won’t be going home this time
You’re so vain but you’re right
So beautiful on the outside
You’re tainted and cruel
You treat me like your fool
Jumping out of my head
Going out of this mind
Give me this love, give me something beautiful
