[VIDEO] New album preview #3: Faded Out

Hello friends!

We’d like to wish you all happy holidays and a kick ass new year. Also a huge shoutout to everyone who’s pledged so far- we’re very lucky to have you as fans.

To celebrate a successful Sunpilots year, here’s another new album preview. It’s called “Faded Out” and was recorded live (one take) in Berlin. We still have a way to go to hit our crowdfunding goal so check out the rewards below if you’d like to contribute. Every bit helps.

Drums are done (we’re seriously pumped about how they sound). Currently recording bass, then guitar and vocals and slowly making steps towards the release?


FADED OUT

You know me
Another night spent lying alone here
Trying to breathe
As the smoke and mirrors both begin to rise
As the world collides and then explodes before my eyes
I realise I can’t move, I can’t get up this time

We’ve fallen so low
We’ve fallen so low

Faded out
Won’t see tomorrow
Faded out
Won’t see tomorrow
We stand, we fall
And through it all
United as we burn

Hear the silence roar
Through the illusion of it all
You say we should fight
And then you fold
You fucked it up didn’t you?
You fucked it up didn’t you…

[LYRICS] New song "Battlecry" live in the park

"Battlecry" live in Mauerpark, Berlin

Our new song 'Battlecry' live in the park last Sunday. Some lyrics:

Reckon it's time we see past the colour
Every child's skin is something to pride
Reckon it's time we rise up together-
Hear us roar our battlecry...

Bleed the same blood
Reap what we've sown
We're all brothers and sisters in the mess when we're alone
Stare into the dark-
I can't see black or white
All I see are these fucking puppeteers that make us fight

[VIDEO] New album preview #2: Fireflies

We’re excited to bring you guys another new album preview! “Fireflies” filmed live in the studio. Share and spread the word.

Massive shout out to everyone who’s pledged so far. Thanks to you we’ve been able to record the bed tracks for the songs in a great studio with a killer engineer. We still have a ways to go to cover mixing, mastering and manufacturing costs so if you’d like to help, just head to pledge.thesunpilots.com and pick one of the rewards to contribute.


FIREFLIES

We are the soldiers in a war that we never want to win;
Trained monkeys do what we’re told for soil and gold
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, we’ll pretend
To sympathise then
Throw them back and watch them drown again…

Bitter lies like fireflies
Burning through my brain
Feels so good to be so numb-
Never want to change
Feed them to the beasts below,
Let them burn I say
Give me more, so I’ll ignore
The body count today

Dressed to kill in the blood they spill, such a pretty shade of red
Shame they had to lose their heads again…

This is the hour, don’t be late
Thought we’d never be here?
You should’a known better
This is the hour, don’t be late
This is the hour
Don’t…

FIREFLIES

We are the soldiers in a war that we never want to win;
Trained monkeys do what we’re told for soil and gold...
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, we’ll pretend
To sympathise the
Throw them back and watch them drown again...

Bitter lies like fireflies
Burning through my brain
Feels so good to be so numb-
Never want to change
Feed them to the beasts below,
Let them burn I say
Give me more, so I'll ignore
