Reed 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).
Gross Evolution

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

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.

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?
We are nothing but the Rudest! Haha! 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
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 Again CHORUS 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 CHORUS 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
