Biography

The hard rock/punk 5-piece, The Supporting Cast, from Little Rock, AR is fresh off of the release of their latest EP , "Volatile Mixture”. The follow-up to 2012’s “Brothers in Arms” features a collection of six great tracks full of diversity from the violent screams and thunderous drums of “Save Me Now” to the soaring chants of “Whoa oh” on “Gamechanger” or the disco-esque rhythm section in “The Warning” to the classic-rock singed guitar solo on the album’s closing track “Silverscreen”. From the start this EP will demand your full attention and encourage you to start singing along! This latest effort truly shows the band separating themselves from being pigeon-holed into any one genre and shows the impact of the band’s eclectic influences. You can hear The Supporting Cast’s newest record “Volatile Mixture” right now at www.thesupportingcast.bandcamp.com.
Following recent performances in support of Bayside, The Almost, and Hawthorne Heights, The Supporting Cast have developed quite a reputation for being a phenomenal live act. Frontman Tyler Bakke's energy and charisma is entertaining on its own, but the fact that his output is matched by the four remaining members is truly an experience worth seeing. As a result, the boys have watched their fan base continue to grow larger. With "Volatile Mixture" the group hopes to see their career be taken to the next level and they hope that you'll be along for the ride!

Hang Loose and Rock 'n Roll.

Lyrics

Love Like Mine

Written By: David Gier

How could you have built up 3 years of excuses?
And what's worse is I fell for your every rehearesed line
I don't know why I could never say no, never let you go
I let you right back into my heart every single time

And the worst part is your phone number's engraved on the inside of my eyelids
And I can barely blink, It's impossible to sleep
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy

I can't believe it I knew it all along but I could not say a word
I tried so many times to leave but I never had the nerve
Until you found yourself on your back, or did you take control at the top?
Well I hope you enjoyed that B-rate version of me

I said I hope you enjoyed that B-rate version of me
And I can barely blink, It's impossible to sleep
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy

I bet you used the same fucking moves, you used to use to let me know you were in the mood,
Like Bayside in '05 I'm 'Existing in a Crisis', and from time to time I still cry when I listen to track number 9,
At least I won't have to live my life looking back on those decisions from those drunken nights,
While I'm wasting away, and my body decays, As I grow older and I'm loved no longer
As I'm searching just to find what once used to be mine, all the way til the day that I die,
Cuz honey, you'll never find a love like mine!

And I can barely blink, it's impossible to sleep
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy
I can't stop thinking about the way you make it look so easy

Brokenridge, Bellair

I've been wasting all my days away, waiting on you to run back to me,
The way you always do, but that's not how it's supposed to be,
This time I won't be here, I won't let you plead your case,
Cuz now I've finally had enough, and I don't ever want to see your face

I know that this is hard to swallow since you were planning on calling back tomorrow,
But I'm moving on and taking my shoulder, this is what you asked for baby it's over

You tell me everything will be alright, in the end you know we'll be together,
But there is no 'we' and there hasn't been, I can't believe you're still saying "forever",
Now you can have all the time you need, but I won't be waiting like I always do,
Just know when you call tomorrow, you won't be hearing "Istill love you"

I know that this is hard to swallow since you were planning on calling back tomorrow,
But I'm moving on and taking my shoulder, this is what you asked for baby it's over

I've been quick to forgive but I can't forget, we've been down this road too many times before,
You say "Goodbye" today, "Hello" tomorrow, but my arms won't be open anymore

Obligatory Camaraderie (The Drinking Song)

Written By: David Gier

Many things in life they tend to come and go
My relationships always take turns for the worst somehow
They leave me bruised and scarred at an all time low
And I never felt as though I belonged anywhere until now

I've wasted all my greatest lines on girls who broke my heart
This time I'll send my love to the ones who matter most
Cuz I wouldn't be shit without all my best friends
Oh, you all know just who you are, And to you I raise a toast

Who needs a drinking song when I've got friends like you?

We're only going to be young once so what's the point in growing up fast
We're doing what we love and making all of our memories last
From the lowest of lows, to the best times of my life
I couldn't live one day without my best friends by my side

And I've wasted all my greatest lines on girls who broke my heart
This time I'll send my love to the ones who matter most
Cuz I wouldn't be shit without my brothers in arms
Oh, you all know just who you are, and to you I raise a toast

Who needs a drinking song when I've got friends like you?

Dear Trixy

It's hard for me to imagine you sleeping somewhere else, in someone else's arms
And I hope they know just how lucky they are
Nothing feels quite right when I'm lying awake at night
I'm still sleeping on the edge pretending you're hogging the other side (Of the bed)

I'm fucking jealous of your new guy, yeah the one who gets to see you smile every night
And the first sight when he wakes up by your side, your side

No more messy hair and no more sleepy-eyed stare, and no reason for sleeping in
I roll out of bed but I can't get get you out of my head, it's like I still see you everywhere

And I'm fucking jealous of your new guy, yeah the one who gets to see you smile every night
And the first sight when he wakes up by your side, your side

And it goes without saying because you know how I feel
With a smile like yours you could light up this whole city
Wish I could burn this whole place down or somehow wash it clean
Because it's not the same without you and I'm just not me

Estimated '99
