about

Keeping true to the band's flair for integrating real-world commentary into their writing, ʻFaceless Manʼ illustrates the plight of a man whose life has been destroyed by whispers and hearsay. As it documents the demise of its protagonist, the song questions the role that the media plays in presenting rumor as truth, through inference and the selective filtering of information to the public. Musically, the song amasses an infectious head of steam, replete with spiraling guitar lead, a probing bass and drum groove and impassioned vocals. The single will be released with the stirring ʻEagles in the Mudʼ as a b-side.

Track Name: Faceless Man
A man's cast out to sea
A storm is threatening, the lightning flashes
but the waves they're crashing on the rocks below me.
The tender saint, she takes a sigh
while the cold whispers down her spine reveal secrets with no meaning.

Another man is on his knees
as we assign the make believe
Another stretch of the truth
but now the public has its proof

A mic to 3db.
The facts won't matter, the hate keeps spreading
through frequencies that only clocks conform to.
The faceless man has now resigned.
The crows they circle.
The night-watch dimming as the daylight comes through.

Another man is on his knees
as we assign the make believe.
Another stretch of the truth
but now the public has its proof.

We want the answers.
We want the truth.
We want the answers,
but we want the proof.

Another man is on his knees
as we assign the make believe.
Another stretch of the truth
but now the public has its proof.
Track Name: Eagles in the Mud
Father's find your sons,
we're leaving and you're mourning.
Soldiers be prepared,
attack without a warning.
Mother's dont you cry,
we're leaving and you're mourning.

We march on with the herd.
The name seeks validation.
The charges are absurd,
they were decapitated.
Now juror's be concerned,
there's no participation.
There is no congregation.
There is no demonstration
There was manipulation.
There was no provocation.

God bless this flag and all these people
We will free them from all the evil.
"Do as I say, not as i do" he said,
"im prepared to see this through."
God bless this flag and all salvation.
The invisible war of a nation.

We wave our flags with pride,
you wrap your's up round bodies.
Positioned out of town
a child cries so quitely.
As we storm on through the door,
we close and fire blindly.

We're leaving in the morning.

God bless this flag and all these people
We will free them from all the evil.
"Do as I say, not as i do" he said,
"im prepared to see this through."
God bless this flag and all salvation.
The invisible war of a nation.

God bless this flag and all these people
We will free them from all the evil.
"Do as I say, not as i do" he said,
"im prepared to see this through."
God bless this flag and all salvation.
The invisible war of a nation.

All i bleed for you.
I tear them down and another's left standing.
All i bleed for you.
I tear them down and another's left standing.
All i bleed for you.
God bless this flag and all salvation,
the invisible war of a nation.
