Biography

Death Apparatus is a Chicago based band featuring former members of the bands Three Star System, Books on Tape, and current touring member of Kill Hannah.

The band was formed in late 2008 and was called Three Star System at the time as a trio with friends Matt as drummer and bassist Rick. They played a fair amount of shows and then they all decided to end it but founding member and singer/songwriter Brian Wandtke decided to keep it going, ultimately changing the band name to Death Apparatus in late of 2009.

Brian recorded an Ep called Nothing is Picture Perfect in March of 2010 and released it in July of 2010. The Ep has a raw muddy hardcore punk feel and it has been well received from the fans having a consistent average of downloads on purevolume with songs such as "Till Daylight Breaks" and "You Wrote this Book for Me". Brian met guitarist Ron Somerville right after the Ep was digitally released and Brian asked his brother Paul to step in whenever he's not touring/playing drums for Kill Hannah. Also worth noting is that the bassist happens to be Brian and Paul's old childhood friend Martin Hreczuch (current owner of April 7's a custom frame shop in Chicago) as they all grew up playing music together.

Plans for the band are to continue growing the band's fan base via concerts and by consistently releasing new material.

Lyrics

The year was 1994

Written By: Brian Wandtke

The year was 1994
How will I remember that girl
We were so young I thought I can see her now
I seen a girl move right across the street in the court
So I went and tried to empress her
But she spoke to me what are you doing
Then it began our friendly fun together
In that summer of that year
It was filled with water balloons and squirt guns
And we played with crayons turning colors to color
The year was 1994
Two plastic rings
And my after thoughts
She went away she went away that day
In that summer it was filled with water balloons and
squirt guns
Crayons turning colors to color
And I said goodbye with two plastic rings
and my after thoughts

You wrote this book for me

Written By: Brian Wandtke

Never forget me!
It says look and listen to me
Never share with another otherwise you will
never get a second chance
Your dreams are not fantasy their right around
the corner and never look back
Never look back..
You wrote what you believed
Wrote this book for me…ME
You wrote you have SEEN
You wrote this book for me..ME
Never look back..
Trust is given only one chance in your life don’t let
it pass you by
You only die with regret
REGRET
You wrote what you believed
You wrote this book for me…ME
You wrote you have SEEN
Your wrote this book for me...ME
You wrote this book for ME!!
You wrote this book for ME!!
You don’t know how I feel
You wrote this book for ME!!
You wrote this book for ME!!

Til daylight breaks

Written By: Brian Wandtke

It takes me time to rewind
To remember to remember
To all that I forgot to forgive
It takes me time to rewind
To remember to remember you
Till daylight breaks
I will never suffer I will not mourn for no one
I will live in no shadow before I die
I want you to know that I lived
Once alive once alive
I was a lie
I want you know
I was alive
Till daylight breaks I will never suffer
I will not mourn for no one
It takes me time to rewind to remember to remember
For all that I forgot to forgive to forgive
It takes me time to remember to remember you

My htoughts of letting you go

Written By: Brian Wandtke

Just take a picture it will be alive longer than me that’s for
sure
Tell me how much I have for you to love me I’m the one to
let go
I’m not the one that says no I’m not the one
I’m not the one Come a bit closer I need you now more
than ever
Wish me good luck wish me good bye your all that I have
let’s meet tonight
I’m the one to let go I’m not the one that says no I’m not
the one I’m not the one
Never be a shamed of me
I know that I’m not so promising to be with
I’m not the one to let go of anyone especially you my
lover girl
I don’t know much about love I don’t know much about
love much about love
