about

We are incredibly excited to officially announce On The Lamb: the follow-up to our debut, Plaidypuss, available everywhere September 14th!

On The Lamb picks up where Plaidypuss left off, and continues our musical exploration of all things Pop-Punk. Over the course of six brand new songs, we cover topics from the joys of being a homebody to the inevitability of life getting in the way, to a failed attempt to pick up a girl at a bar.

On The Lamb was recorded over several days in Menomonee Falls, WI, in April, 2018, at Cherry Pit Studios. It was engineered, co-produced, and mixed by Ryan Kutz; co-engineered by Eric LaBrosse; and Mastered by Joel Wanasek.

Track Name: Wanderlust
I've sailed all,
I've sailed all,
I've sailed all the seven seas
I've been there,
I've done that: around the world on my TV screen

And it still makes me happy,
Yeah it still makes me happy to go back home

I don't see,
I don't see,
I don't see what's the fuss?
I don't care,
I don't care, I don't care for the Wanderlust

Cause it still makes me happy,
Yeah it still makes me happy to go back home

Home.
Home.
Home.

The view out my window: an alleyway that can't be beat
I get my kicks,
Get my kicks,
From the shoe store down the street

Cause it still makes me happy,
Yeah it still makes me happy to go back home
Track Name: Catastrophe
Hey babe I'm really not as drunk as you think
So can I buy you a drink?
I know I'm not the man who caught your eye first
But maybe you can do worse?

I look exhausted by the lines on my face
But I'm just showing my age
All jeans are skinny jeans when you are not
Maybe I have a longggg shot

Hey I'm a catastrophe that never really had a chance
It don't mean much to me, I'm hardly worth a second glance
Face for monogamy, and looking for a bad romance
Hey I'm a catastrophe, but baby can I have this dance?

So can I get your number, call you at home?
Oh, you don't have a phone…
My shirt is wrinkled and my pants are a mess
Say, how about your address?

I promise you that I'm one of a kind
My hair is thinner than I am
I guess there's nothing really more I can do
Yeah and I'm ugly, too

Hey I'm a catastrophe that never really had a chance
It don't mean much to me, I'm hardly worth a second glance
Face for monogamy, and looking for a bad romance
Hey I'm a catastrophe, but baby can I have this,
Baby can I have this,
Baby can I have this,
Baby can I have this dance?

Hey I'm a catastrophe that never really had a chance
It don't mean much to me, I'm hardly worth a second glance
Face for monogamy, and looking for a bad romance
Hey I'm a catastrophe, but baby can I have this
Baby can I have this,
Baby can I have this,
Baby can I have this dance?
Track Name: Trophy Beer
OMG!
Sing a song to the sirens' blare
So often that it makes it hard to care
We could in moments be blown to hell
And joking won't stop it so we might as well

I understand that there is no escape
Wherever good people congregate
We all think, though we know it's sick:
That "I would make a much better lunatic"

It doesn't matter what you say
It's gonna happen anyway
It doesn't matter what you do
One day they're gonna come for you

I can't help wondering where I'll be
When they finally come for me
I should feel lucky I'm just paranoid
For all of the disasters that I can't avoid

I'm not a martyr for the good of the state
But I'll suffer the same fate
How did we end up this way?
Am I nuts or is this just the end of all days?

It doesn't matter what you say
It's gonna happen anyway
It doesn't matter what you do
One day they're gonna come for you

It doesn't matter what you say
It's gonna happen anyway
It doesn't matter what you do
ONE DAY THEY’RE GONNA COME FOR YOU!!!
Track Name: This Just In
A healthy dose of tragedy
Self-sustaining casualties
Where to go for serenity?
Just go home.

A safe haven in your head
Broadcasting to your bed:
A can of worms, existential dread
In your home.

I think I've heard enough of this
So sick of being a pessimist
It's gotten underneath my skin.
This Just In: oh here we go again

A steady stream of hysteria
And single-minded deliria
Spread like bacteria, just go on.

For all the competitors:
How to raise a predator:
Have him run for Senator, just go on

I think I've heard enough of this
So sick of being a pessimist
It's gotten underneath my skin.
This Just In: oh here we go again

Oh here we go again
Oh here we go again
Oh here we go again

Only in it for the wealth
At the expense of mental health
Go and try to save yourself
Who is gonna take the helm?
See it start to overwhelm
So, I guess it's just as well, oh.

A culture of emergency
Filibustered urgency
Terrorizing amnesty
Self-fulfilling prophecy
Disconnected policy
With a side of profit, see? Oh.

I think I've heard enough of this
So sick of being a pacifist
It's gotten underneath my skin.
This Just In, oh here we go again
Track Name: Sola Catuli
Food is turning into dust inside (my mouth)
Is dry with my distrust, no goodbye
When are you coming home?

Walking circles it's a chore I try to (sleeping)
Down here on the floor, I cry, too

Feels like seven years, since you've been gone
I'm here, since you've been gone

What if you're never coming back?
What can I say, what do I lack?
What if I waited up all night?
Turn my whole world to black and white.

If you'd only let me talk, then (maybe)
We could just go take a walk, sedate me
You don't understand.

I was selfish, yes, I know, it's (stupid)
Things I say and where I go, then I hid.
Help me be a man

Cause it's alright.
I'm here, and it's alright.

What if I've never been alone?
Then could you just throw me a bone?
What if I waited up all night?
Turn my whole world to black and white.
Track Name: Hindered Spirits
Going nowhere, going fast.
Should’ve known it would never last
I know, yeah, I know, it’s all the same

A flight risk, and a whipping boy.
A couple picks and a bag of coins.
That’s all. That is all that remains
No you don’t, no you don’t have to explain:
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

The more you look, the more you’ll find
A reason to leave it all behind
When you’re counting on your hands

I don't have a keeper,
And when it's all said and done
I am just a Hindered Spirit on the run
Is this a mistake? If it is, it’s mine to make
Cause my life does go on. It goes on.
And on, and on, and on, and on, and…

Unrest and monotony’s
A self-fulfilling prophecy
And there’s only one way to make it through

Chase your dreams, and forget the rest
In the end this is for the best
I hope, and that’s the best that I can do
Best of luck, in everything that you pursue.
Who am I to hinder you?

The more you look, the more you’ll find
A reason to leave it all behind
When you’re counting on your hands

I don't have a keeper,
And when it's all said and done
I am just a Hindered Spirit on the run
Is this a mistake? If it is, it’s mine to make
Cause my life does go on. It goes on.
And on, and on, and on, and on, and…

The more you look, the more, I pray
You’ll find a reason here to stay
And I’m counting on my hands

I won’t be the one to hold you back
I couldn’t do that
I won’t be the one to hold you back
I couldn’t do that
I won’t be the one to hold you back
I couldn’t do that

I don't have a keeper,
And when it's all said and done
(I won’t be the one to hold you back)
I am just a Hindered Spirit on the run
(I can’t do that)
Is this a mistake? If it is, it’s mine to make
(I won’t be the one to hold you back)
Cause my life does go on.

It goes on!
