"...The Rabies are making a name for themselves with haunting keyboards and an all-together sharp and catchy pop sensibility...Very few bands that dabble in these styles of rock have both tight musicians and charismatic singers..." ---Robert Jimison Rockinbones.net

Biography

****SOON TO BE UPDATED****
Be afraid of The Rabies. Be very afraid. Hailing from the underbelly of Buffalo, NY, The Rabies emerged in 2003 and have since then acquired a faithful following; all claiming to have been "infected" by this new buzz. With their concoction of new wave, punk, and in-your-face rock-n-roll, The Rabies aren't here for a campfire sing along...they're here to wake the dead.

Their first album entitled "Get Infected!!!" is currently being played across radio stations in Great Britain, Spain, France, and Australia, as well as college and internet radio stations across the US. It debuted at #21 on the most played albums list at Three D Radio 93.7 FM in Australia for the week ending on 2/9/05 and ranked at #6 on MP3.com in 2004. Their much anticipated new album entitled "Night Terror" is yet to be released and is currently seeking representation.

The Rabies have toured the East Coast and have shared the stage with such veterans as The Buzzcocks, The Dickies, Wilco, Dinah Cancer and Penis Flytrap, and The Adicts. They have also played on the main stage at the largest International horror rock music festival, Drop Dead 2, in NYC in September of 2004 and are scheduled to play on the Shira Girl stage at this years Warped Tour.

They have worked directly with Robby Takac of The Goo Goo Dolls and his Music Is Art organization, and are currently sponsored by Coffin Case custom guitar cases. In April of 2005, they proudly earned the title of "Featured Artist" at girlpunk.net.

No matter how much you dare to resist, they will infect you too...The Rabies are contagious.

Lyrics

DOMINATION OF THE DEAD

Written By: The Rabies

DEEP UNDERGROUND
THE DEAD LAY FEEDING ON THE SOUND
OF FOOTSTEPS; FORWARD BOUND
CHILLING SPINES ON SACRED GROUND
FORWARNED TO HEED THE SIGNS
YOUR HEARTBEAT ECHOS IN THEIR MINDS
PROCEED DESPITE YOUR FRIGHT
THE DARKNESS SHROUDS AN EVIL NIGHT

GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT ALIVE
GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT ALIVE

WHEN DARKNESS FINDS YOU FROM WITHIN
THAT'S WHEN THE DEAD SHALL RISE AGAIN
YOU'VE BROUGHT UPON THE DOMINATION
THE DOMINATION OF THE DEAD

GOT TO FIND YOUR BRIDE
SHE WAITS FOR YOU BY HER GRAVESIDE
FOLLOW HER RAVEN CRY
IN BOUND TOO SOON TO SANCTIFY
BEWARE THIS GHOSTLY PATH
AWAKEN SOULS AND HEED THEIR WRATH
CLOSE NOW; STRAIGHT AHEAD
A PAWN TO WAKE THE SLEEPING DEAD

ARISE; SHE WAKES TONIGHT
YOUR UNDEAD BRIDE STILL DRESSED IN WHITE
ATTACK; NOT SAME IN DEATH
HER HUNGER CLAWS YOUR HUMAN FLESH
FORLORN YOUR EVIL DEED
ON BLOOD NOT LOVE IS WHAT SHE NEEDS
YOU FOOL; YOU'RE IN TOO DEEP
YOU'LL JOIN HER NOW IN UNDEAD SLEEP

SUFFOCATE TWIST

Written By: THE RABIES

VERSE 1:
Come on grab a guy now it’s so easy to do.
Then grab him by the throat ‘til he’s black and blue.
Twist it all around and let the fun begin,
Then wait for a last breath and then we do it again.
---CHORUS---

CHORUS:
Suffocating suffocate
Suffocating suffocate
Suffocating suffocating
The suffocate twist

VERSE 2:
Do it all the time now don’t you miss your chance,
‘Cause everybody’s doing the new zombie dance.
Shake it all around just like the Exorcist
It doesn’t really matter just as long as you twist.
---CHORUS---
---BRIDGE---
---VERSE 1---

Suffer

BLACK LAGOON BORDELLO

Written By: THE RABIES

Black Lagoon Bordello

VERSE 1:
Inside this city’s corporations they are draining your blood
Metal clamp on your vast ambitions growing lies from the mud
The underground is how you escape the bullshit that is said
Come inside this vampire’s haven the living realm of the dead
-CHORUS-

CHORUS:
Black lagoon bordello
Martini glasses of blood
Black lagoon bordello
Forbidden curses of love

VERSE 2:
Table 13 in the darkness that is where I reside
Waiting for the 12 bells of midnight and the dead to arise
From the shadows there grows a figure I feel him staring at me
Eyes as black as inside a coffin and as dead as the sea
-CHORUS-
-BRIDGE-

VERSE 3:
Come with me we’ll dance in the graveyard the shadow whispered to me
Grabbed my hand and led me from my faded eyes I sold my soul to be free
-CHORUS-

Forbidden curses of love…
