Biography

The Foreign Army

Hailing from Windsor, Ontario, The Foreign Army has left a mark on the local music scene with their charismatic blend of alternative rock. The group, led by singer-songwriter Nahum Gald, strives to perfect their soaring melodies and unpredictable song structures since their early days under the moniker Hideaway Place.

Their fascinating self-titled EP is a collection of 8 haunting, melancholic tracks that defy genre classifications and push the boundaries while maintaining a common watermark throughout the track list.

Their EP is set to be released in the summer of 2013 but has already been met with some encouraging results, garnering placements on major broadcasting networks such as ABC and the Oprah Winfrey Network as well as a nomination for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

From the warmth of the acoustic guitars to the dark, lush pad sounds, the flow of this record brings the music to places you don’t expect.

Lyrics

obscurity

Written By: nahum galdamez

My heart is like an abandoned ghost town
i dont even believe in ghosts now
theyre easier to ignore.

theres so much I'm waiting to see
there's so much, thats waiting on me
but somehow theres nothing for me to show

pre
Waiting for the day
waiting through the night
waiting on the perfect time for me to..

Chorus
Take this heart, out of obscurity
this thing thats beating inside of me
wants to believe in every promise that I've made

Take this heart, make it a part of me
i know its beating but i cant breathe
until i find something to call my own, on my own

v2
someone is looking at me yet no one will listen to me
just hope keeps me waiting by every door
so loong im walking away from this town im trading the world
for these songs..ill sing em for evermore

pre
Waiting for the day
waiting through the night
waiting on the perfict time for me to

Chorus
Take this heart, out of obscurity
this thing thats beating inside of me
wants to believe in every promise that I've made

Take this heart, make it a part of me
i know its beating but i cant breathe
until i find something to call my own, on my own

bridge
and you will, believe me when its done
you'll hear me when im gone,
and no one will remember i was down
so catch me while i can
and watch me make this stand upside this waterslide i run

PRE
No more days
running from the night
no more endless fights
no more "guiding lights"
waiting on the perfect time for me to

Chorus
Take this heart, out of obscurity
this thing thats beating inside of me
wants to believe in every promise that I've made

Take this heart, make it a part of me
i know its beating but i cant breathe
until i find something to call my own, on my own
