about

Four guys from the capital crossing the republic. For three voices, melody, shouting and bad-ass guitars are the frame those four create their dreams of. You have to live music for approaching things as Shearer do. Genius and madness coupled with megalomania, which is entitled such as for hardly any other band.

The audience will expect a big rock album with 'Eve', but it also gives the necessary breaks for breathing, independent, catchy and diverse. The limited EP 'Adam' improves that work with even more power, a soft core and a heartbreaking end. Here you can feel the bundled intensity of the Shearer live gigs.

The whole thing was recorded at Music Lab Studio, produced by none other than Harris Johns. Private Life was completely abolished for about three months, in order to invest any spark of energy and creativity into their opus. The hard work was paid off. With 'Eve' and 'Adam' Shearer have a trend-setting masterpiece, which doesn't need to be afraid of comparisons with greats such as Foo Fighters or Beatsteaks, neither in sound nor musically things.

As it's predecessor the new album will be downloadable for an arbitrary value (or even for free!) on the band's webpage and is available in any store. The EP is exclusively available on the homepage of afmusic for free, as payable download in any popular download-stores and further more as limited CD (500 pieces) on the Shearer-Homepage or at their shows. For collectots there is even a strictly limited Double-CD Edition called 'Paradise' (200 pieces, numbered) which contains both albums in a digipak.

Track Name: Ordinary Man
Where has my money gone
Where does it hide
They say the economy grows
But my share's been denied

Where has my money gone
My life's in the red
Just like the years I lost
It will never be back

We are at home
Decades, years and centuries return
We know what it's like to burn

Where is my attitude
Where is my voice
When did I lose my faith
When have I been destroyed

We are at home
Decades, years and centuries return
We know what it's like to burn
We know what it's like to be on fire
We know what it's like to burn
Track Name: Overstock
the evidence of our romance
an avoidance of the matters of us both

predict you've got the best for me
jam all crossroads that are leading to me

come change my come change my world
so come on so come on so come on yeah!
come change my come change my world

addict me to your prophecies
flood my ears to get all of me

no escape from all that shit
your arguments so eloquent
Track Name: Old
got to, got to, got to, got to say it
that i wanna be a wanna be, a sinner and i wanna be so dumb
pass the buck another sucker and pull the string for free
yea my friend come sing with me

i'm old, i'm fucking old
knowing all the stories that your mama told you

say it, say it, say it, say it i'm a fucker
say it, say it, say it that you gonna be sucker
say it, say it, say it that you wanna be so dumb
now you're free to sing along
Track Name: Bound
I'm here again
born in perfidy to oppress all men
loot of death
reward of sweat

Tidals of your wealth decay
but my rules are forever your manual
here i am
to last the time

'cause im bound to you my friend
'cause i'm bound to you again

I'm a worldwide vow
occidental, oriental, ever yours
here i am
use me for your plans
Track Name: Fist On a Wall
Below the watch hand that stopped ticking
Long gone in a room so stale
In my hands I carry my head
A head that my neck can't sustain
I'm so numb I could just be dead, yea
Forever numb while I remain, ooooh

Below the watch hand that stopped ticking
On a chair that's bound to pain
Watching life moving on outside
And my patience's wearing thin
I hurt, get me out of this mess
I'll hurt while I'm within, ooooh

Below the watch hand that stopped ticking
I wanna die, but I breathe again
Gotta dance when you're pulling my strings
Gotta dance while I remain
My heart is pounding like a fist on a wall
I'm wide awake, I feed on pain, woooooh

Tonite I will come around
Tonite I will tear it down

Tonite I will break me free
Tonite you may rescue me
Track Name: Sing to You
The night is young, let's get it on
Let me sing to you all night long
I wanna sing to you
I'm gonna sing to you

'bout what I like, about what might
About what's going on inside
I wanna sing to you
I'm gonna sing to you

Sing to you
I wanna sing TO YOU
To you I wanna sing

Another day and all I know
I'm waiting for you at the show
I wanna sing to you
I'm gonna sing to you

About the blues, about my views
About the girls I like to choose
I wanna sing to you
Just let me sing to you
Track Name: Is It You (Paradise-Mix)
Lay down your story
Lay down that story of mine
Don't let it vanish
Don't let it wither and die

From you I flow
From you I rise
Don't let it end
With empty eyes

Lay down your passion
Lay down what made you alive
Lay down what drove you
Let me get to know you right

From you I flow
From you I rise
Don't break the chain
In good time you'll die

Is it you inside my head
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my heart
Is it you I feel here

Lay down the fire
Lay down the hurt inside your eyes
Lay down your purpose
Let me see into who I am

Is it you inside my head
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my heart
Is it you

Is it you under my skin
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my smile
Is it you I feel here
