So. Meet Battleme.


(Pictured: Blurry dude on the diagonal.)


They sing one of my favourite songs, a lovely, mellow little track called Burn This Town. Chances are that you haven't heard of them. They're on an indie label called Bad Mouth Records, but they don't have a debut album out yet. That should come later this spring and should be between 9-12 songs.

This is Battleme in their own words:

Battleme is the lost noise project of Matt D from Lions (Austin, TX). It surrounds itself with heroes and losers.

Burn This Town was featured in an episode of Sons of Anarchy, and can be found on the Sons of Anarchy: Shelter EP (i.e., the EP soundtrack for season 2).



I hope to hear more from them because Matt D's other band, Lions, is one of the "house bands" for the show, since SOA primarily uses cover versions of famous songs to keep costs down. I love hearing awesome songs in TV shows or movies. I'm not going to lie - it gives me a little thrill.

The band has an interesting sound. While it's not exactly groundbreaking, there's definitely enough room on my iPod for it.


Lyrics

Gonna burn the town
if you lie to me
gonna set it off
oh baby I was blind to see
Talk me down
I'll find my wings
a big bad soul
some say that it's the end of me

But I tell myself it's not following me
break me out of here, it's blinding me
lie to me baby, don't you lie to me
nothing's gonna change
if you wait to save me

When the world is down
and fast asleep
they can't break us now
nobody's here for you or me
I'm half way gone
don't want to be alone
I'll burn the town
I'll find you if you want to be found

And I tell myself they're not following me
break me out of here, it's blinding me
lie to me baby, don't you lie to me
nothing's gonna change
if you wait to save me

But I tell myself it's not following me
break me out of here, it's blinding me
lie to me baby, don't you lie to me
nothing's gonna change
if you wait to save me

nothing's gonna change if
you can't, can't save me
