Hunter Romanko The horns are on point, and it's a good time all around. Favorite track: Night Gaunts - Post Party Depression (Days N Daze Cover).

Wayne Wheezy Night Gaunts never disappoint. You think their albums are good, then you should see them live. Favorite track: Night Gaunts - 8 Dollars.

George Sullivan Turn on and clear some space! It seems that the Night Gaunts struggle to make a song suitable for a seated arena, instead i find myself skanking myself skinny around the house.

The Days n Daze half is a cracker, Same Shit is the top choice for me but yet again they have failed to produce a song i skip. The whole split is Jam Hot. Favorite track: Night Gaunts - Nights & Daze.

Track Name: Night Gaunts - 8 Dollars
Awwwwwwwwwww! Yeah!

Sweaty from the heat baby NYC!
In a park full foreigners
Treading off the beat
Feeling oh so small looking up at these walls
We gave power to kids who can destroy the world
Now they sit in offices
Behind desks in grey
I can not say they're evil, man
They're just playing the game
And it’s the game we've gotta play
We all make our own path
You've gotta do the math
Survival… it's just for a laugh

Don’t you go wasting it
Oh put it to the test
Get out on your own and try to do your best!
Don’t you go wasting it
Put it to the test
Don't let these motherfuckers get you down!

Ooo we can always take it back
Oh we can always take it
Back to days when we had 8 dollars
Q-tip was on the deck
Brooklyn's Tuesday night

So little money in my pocket
What to do?
I never went to Uni
Will I ever make it through?
To have music as a goal
Is scary to me
Because every time I look around I think oh my god
I’ve gotta save money
Gotta go back on tour
I’ve gotta hang out with my friends
I gotta be a lover
I’ve gotta help my girlfriend more than anything in the world but
Oh what am I ever gonna do?
Track Name: Night Gaunts - Nights & Daze
We are nothing but the Rudest!

It doesn’t matter!

I miss him
I miss him greatly
The kid with the smile that could skate all day see
I really felt he had it all
I really think he had it

What a!
What a motherfucker
Smoked too much ganja he must’ve
Little boy playing in the trees
You and me we are not the same

So I’m writing
So I’m writing with the lights on
With the fan
With the fan cooling me down
Can it get
Can it get any hotter?

Jessica doesn’t think so
She makes a cool mojito
And takes it to the lobby
This way she thinks she’s on holiday

Please tell me now if we’re ever going back
That look in her eyes telling pictures of a new life
Okay let’s both go on a trip
Nights ’n’ Daze
I live for this

Hop to the docks
Set sail today
I gotta get to ahead
I gotta pull my weight
Stand up stop Laying around
Get ya head off the ground

I’ve seen him
I’ve seen him lately
The kid with the beer
That he bought on sale see
I really felt he had it all
I really think he had it

What a
What a motherfucker
Smoked too much
Ganja he must’ve
Little boy playing in the street
You and me we are not the same
Track Name: Night Gaunts - Post Party Depression (Days N Daze Cover)
Lyrics by Days N Daze

Peel the mask away drop the masquerade
Lose the tough guy facade
The world’s a scary place
Everybody’s afraid
Whether they’d like to admit or not
It’s the truth

Lose the tough guy facade
The world's a scary place
Everybody's afraid
Whether they'd like to admit or not
it's the truth

Sooner or later this party gets busted
And all your friends stumble back home
But you're the lose cannon
That could never be trusted
So you'll hide from the cops all alone

Tell me when the fire dies down
What the fuck will you do?
When the man comes around
what the fuck will you do?
Who's gonna be there to catch you
When your plans all fall through
When you were flyin' your white flag
Who never gave up on you

The future is terrifying
It constantly plagues my mind
Where will I be in ten years
Will I be homeless?
Or buried?
Have children and be married?
Or will I still be stuck standin' right here?
Either way it's been a privilege
to have had time to spend
with my wonderful family and friends
So I toast to all of you
And to all that you do
You're fuckin' awesome don't you ever forget it


Build up your confidence
will lead to have a breakdown
And every morning that you wake up's just a let down
Find yourself a comfort or two
Adjust until your face down black out fucked up
Just to help yourself forget
The world we live in is a terrifying place
Who will be ones who are there
When the rest have gone away
The ones who've turned their back on you
They're staggerin' off the plank
Come back a fuckin' cannon
Blow 'em away
and watch them sink
