The Basement EP is our first recording session in our house, we did all the instrumentals in one take and did the vocals immediately after finishing it on the night of September 25th, 2013.


I long for halls filled wall to wall with all kinds of people
Who scream and crawl and their jaws will fall when they hear what we do that evening
But now I wait and contemplate the day I'm gonna leave
Impatient in my basement I'm just chasing what I see

Apparently I did not see the arrival of this plague
Made up names of waves and rays and claims of the new age
Make no mistake if it was yours to take I would not waste my time
But you got paid and radio plays and teenage girls in line

I stare out at the empty hall and in my mind there's people
Who sing along to our song and line the street outside the theaters
But I'm a man who understands the chance is slim to none
It's not enough to stop me now my work is never done
