 New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
BandRockProgressive

High-energy, horn driven progressive rock with a subtle punk and New Orleans funk undertone with focused guitar riffs bolstered by driving bass lines and a powerful horn section, The Scorseses present a measure of radio ready alt-rock that is familiar, yet incredibly distinct.

Biography

In 2011, The Scorseses were recognized as the Best Band Reinventing Their Game by the Best of the Big Easy Awards for Where Yat Magazine. They have also played many festivals including Gulfport Music Festival, Houston Beer Festival, Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo, Houston Oktoberfest, ArtMelt, Heart of Texas RockFest, Red Gorilla Music Festival, as well as rocking everywhere in between. They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with many great musicians, including touring with the legendary Fishbone in early 2013, which helped broaden their fan base. This year, they also entered the studio to record their first full-length album, Magnumopus, released on September 28, 2013, and they are honored to have been selected to perform at the Voodoo Experience in New Orleans this November 2013. The Scorseses will be touring with H.R. from Bad Brains on the D.I.A. Global Rock Showcase Tour in 2014 as well, to support their new album.

As musicians, they truly attain contentment through their musical expression and the connection that is made with music enthusiasts. This zeal for harmonious mastery drives their music to new levels. They feel fortunate to claim New Orleans as their birthplace, and that the citys rhythm and harmony exists within their souls. There are many musical genres that heavily impact how their sound has developed, and a combination of funk, metal, jazz, reggae, and rock comprises the foundation. They inspire each other musically and continue to be motivated by new and innovative ideas from fellow artists. They take pride in high energy live performances while it is difficult to describe in words, a live show must be experienced to be fully appreciated. They have recently upgraded their lineup to include a full horn section, completing the eight-person group. The Scorseses could be described as high energy, horn-driven progressive rock with a subtle punk and New Orleans funk undertone. With focused guitar riffs bolstered by driving bass lines and a powerful horn section, The Scorseses present a measure of radio-ready alt-rock that is familiar, yet distinct.

As the day suddenly marches into night
Oh it's beautiful place for regret
And through all the paths that we have chosen
With countless numbered silhouettes

Silence the beat and pad the streets
We might not make it home
I want a piece of everything
Don't trust those that aren't your own

When your inside my nightmares
And skeletons come marching with your face
In this paranoid style of a twisted paradox
Please take me home

And bury the day
Oh when you said you loved me
Bury the memories that carve themselves on your face
These are the words that we could say
To get ourselves through another day
Bury the day

Silence the beat and pad the streets
We might not make it home
I want a piece of everything
Don't trust those that aren't your own

Hopefully one day soon we'll find the location of our thrones
Bury the day
Whoa when you said you loved me
Bury the memories that carve themselves on your face

These are the words that we could say
Get ourselves through another day
Bury the day
Bury the day

They are the blades inside the apple, we are the legionnaires of our fate So cut the chain and break the shackles of your blinded state

start looking around, start looking around and realize that the honeymoon is over stop standing around and start standing your ground and understand that the world is a joker

Keep one eye open and you may see things that you never thought that you would see within this dream Like a bullet to the head on your birthday!

Fear is the beast that craves attention, the bottom dweller that we escape the paradigm is always shifting to cover up our mistakes We are starting to drift into an abyss, where the greed and hate can pull you under stop draining the tit, it gets better than this, in this world full of constant blunder

Keep one eye open and you may see things that you never thought that you would see within this dream we will be sitting by the campfire, telling stories and wishing that it was just like it used to be..

We are marching through these baron lands of hypocrisy and one day we will stand atop the mountain and scream "We are free" We are free

But there is only so long that we can sweep this under the carpet, so shake a rug and make a scene! We will be sitting by the campfires ,telling stories and wishing that it was just like it used to be.

But are we really free? I guess that we'll just have to wait and see…

Watch and see more than you ever thought you would! Watch and see more than you ever thought you could! Watch and see more than you ever thought you would!

The washing of the rainbows followed by the smoke As death rolls in it burns our skin, and crowds begin to choke Words of the prophets predicted this before but the only thing that i can think about is where you are.. If i have to search all of the earth with the blood of monsters on my shirt through the madness and hurt I want to be the one who could save you, but I'm just an ordinary person who wants to be the one who could save you, but i'm just an ordinary man an ordinary man. with no other care than to be there with you safe in my arms, the moments rot with urgency from the thoughts that i have spawned Now it's time to take the air, the atmosphere is gold Please just stay safe long enough until chaos meets control!

even if your ground begins to shake, and the pale white takes over your face know that where there is a will there's a way!

I want to be the one who could save you, but I'm just an ordinary person who wants to be the one who could save you, but i'm just an ordinary man

and when they cover up you eyes, i want to be your ray of light and when destruction fills the skies, ill be your shelter when they shower you in lies.. but i'm just an ordinary person, i'm just an ordinary man (x 3)

I want to swoop you from this burning building and straight up to the sky I want to swoop you from this burning building and straight into the sky!!!

I want to be the one who could save you, but still i'm just an ordinary man.

We keep our heartbeats patient, good will prevail All of the times we faced it when we've burned and failed the time is now for progress in Technicolor sound! Can we take back the airwaves from the watered down? But I can almost taste it, a movement of the mind..

open up your musical taste and use more of your brain don't settle for the bullshit being served hot on your plate It's auto tuned, mass consumed, deep as a shot glass trash That's filling up your iPod and killing music in its path

But i can almost taste it, a movement of the mind...

Aren't you tired of the same old song? Regurgitated, rearranged, and overdone. Just so all the Lemmings can Dance till Dawn! They don't really care about the words anymore..

Open up your musical taste and use more of your brain don't settle for the music, when it all sounds the same it's auto-tuned, mass consumed, deep as a shot glass trash that's filling up your eye pod and killing music in a flash.

But I can almost taste it, a movement of the mind... Much, much, much too many frequencies wasted on bands straight from the assembly line

Well I’m tired of the same old song! Regurgitated, rearranged, and overdone. Just so all the Lemmings can Dance till Dawn! They don't really care about the words, No they don't anymore...

They are so, they are so, they are so overdone. Regurgitated, rearranged, and overdone. They don't really care about the words anymore...

That's why they sound the same to me that’s why they all sound the same to me...

The winter sun is cold, but i never will let go of a friend and sometimes the wind blows stronger than the thin mortar in the wall we will try even with the dirt kicked in our eyes and if all of creation turns it back on me it's only a matter of time until the bullets start to fly again cutting through devotion so quietly.. well the winter months get cold,still i never will let go of a friend and sometimes the tension grows stronger than it should and i promise not to fold! because we will fly, even with a knife stuck in our side and if all of creation turns it's back on me We'll fight till the stars will align until the bullets start to fly again, cutting through devotion so quietly.. (Yeah we know) only what we hear about (Yeah we know) only what we read (Yeah we know) half of what we are told about it but maybe without it, maybe we could breathe.. We will try ,even with the dirt kicked in our eyes and if all of creation turns it back on me it's only a matter of time, until the bullets start to fly again cutting through devotion so quietly.. …so quietly.

If the rumble of the earthquakes swallowed all your dreams.. then where do you think that you would be? As the stars singe our fingers, right down to the bone... Sometime you lose more than you know. I was Lost among the evergreens, rediscovered life.. this is the will of sacrifice!

Wielding on and wielding on, Blinding eyes and melting guns anarchy is so much fun! so why can't we be lovers? the same reason that we can't love each other..

Don't hold me down cause i'm wasting away inside the same old scene again I'll watch it burn the whole way down, because the demons in my head they wear me out

wonder, why the, answer never changed..

Past ,present, future... everything that's on the surface Revolution it.. Past ,present, future.. Everything that's on the surface Revolution, starts within our pride!

try to find that backway home, until you realize you are all alone, and this dog don't hunt that bone take a look to the sky and see how you have sacrificed everything just to be like me. wonder why the answer never changed?..

Past ,present, future... everything that's on the surface Revolution it's it's Past ,present, future.. Everything that's on the surface Revolution, starts within our pride!

one way, forever more x 3

one way to go home! (solo)

wonder why the answers never change that why we all stay the same we are going under! that's why we all stay the same We are going under!!!

i just want to let you know, i just want to let you know that it's..

Past ,present, future... everything that's on the surface Revolution Past ,present, future.. Everything that's on the surface Revolution, it starts within our pride! oh baby it's revolution..
