Biography

In June 2006, Mikey Sabatella, Eric Ehlers, Brian Shaw and Greg Hurst, joined together as members from various bands in the Southern California area, to form The Spencer Outfit-- an energetic Pasadena, California based rock band.  Their new record "00:03" (3 Seconds To Go) combines hard rock and metaphoric lyrics with a unique style of pop formulation, creating an overall powerful musical performance.  "I can't quite put my finger on exactly who your band sounds like," is the phrase TSO is slowly getting used to these days. Over the past 4 years each member has had experiences ranging from playing an average of 220 shows per year, working with bands like Save Ferris, Unwritten Law, and Something Corporate, and traveling with The Warped Tour.  Their brand new record, "00:03", was signed to Nutcase Entertainment in Japan almost overnight. Having been involved with a music festival in July 2006 and also with a collaboration for an MTV Japan music video, TSO is no stranger to the D.I.Y. ethic of hard work and dedication to music.

Lyrics

Wake Me, I'll Listen

Written By: Mikey Sabatella, Brian Shaw, Eric Ehlers and Jon Safely / Lyrics by Mikey Sabatella

Some say to live your life and be happy,
I say be happy your alive,
Make the best outta this bad situation
Don't give up the fight,
And I've never known, I've always tried
Release the hate built up inside

And wake me I'll listen, dont play me the fool,
No...not at all!

An empty house with open doors,
Two fists collide igniting war,
Embrace the past admit the truth
An empty heart and wasted youth,
I've never known I've always tried,
A mouth taped shut and two hands tied

So wake me, I'll listen, don't play me the fool
Where you goin' now won't you come to me
I'm never gonna let you die
No...Not at all!

Breakin' My Mind

Written By: Mikey Sabatella, Brian Shaw, Eric Ehlers and Jon Safely / Lyrics by Mikey Sabatella

So long
There'll be another day
Stay strong don't break under the weight.
Addiction lives within your lungs
Painted black for all to see
Stop while your ahead...

Lift minds...my heart is skipping a beat,
Pulse raised high...from head to feet,
When every move I make, feels like this
and every breathe I take...feels like

Please save me, please save me now
I'm breakin my mind takin my time take it
I'm waistin' my life...take this now

Well we've changed life it moves so fast it's insane,
Dont hide beneath the cast that youve made,
These words travel through air for all to see.
Stop while you're ahead...

Lift minds...my heart is skipping a beat,
Pulse raised high...from head to feet,
When every move I make, feels like this
and every breathe I take...feels like

Please save me, please save me now
Please save me, please save me
I'm breakin my mind takin my time take it
I'm waistin' my life...take it now

Antigravity

Written By: Mikey Sabatella, Brian Shaw, Eric Ehlers and Jon Safely / Lyrics by Mikey Sabatella

Do you believe in a thing called love
I am the air through trees filling your lungs
And the pulse of my heart through every
song I've sung....it's all for you,

Can you feel me breathe on your neck
Listen close as I dare confess
I'm speaking through tongues
with every beat of the drum and every war
that I thought I've always won....was all for you

What's wrong she said
It's not me this is all inside your head

I'm saving myself for you tonight
There won't be nobody else, no one comes close
I'm saving myself for you tonight,
There won't be nobody else to take me home

Would you believe in a thing called love
You are the blood that flows red through my viens
And the thought in my head making these
chords change....it's all for you,

Can you feel me breathe on your neck
Listen close as I dare confess
My skin is hardened and tough
Your eyes to mine say enough
Now I believe in this messed up thing
called love because of you.

What's wrong she said
It's not you this is all inside my head,

I'm saving myself for you tonight
There won't be nobody else, no one comes close
I'm saving myself for you tonight,
There won't be nobody else to take me home

I wont stay tonight,
without you without you,
Don't think I don't know nothing about you.
I'm all alone, your all alone, we're all alone...

I'm saving myself for you tonight
There won't be nobody else, no one comes close
I'm saving myself for you tonight,
There won't be nobody else to take me home
