  • Ultra Limited Test Pressing For Charity
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    We've had a number of people ask about purchasing a test press of Absolutes. We have 1 that we're willing to part with, and we want to do something good with it.


    We're going to donate 100% of the purchase price (after payment processing fees) to Second Harvest Food Bank of San Jose.


    Second Harvest is a non-profit organization that distributes food to low-income families in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. More than half the people they serve are children or seniors. You can read more about the work that they do on their website: www.shfb.org/aboutus


    We set the price at $75, but if you want to purchase it for more, that's more money going to Second Harvest. Thank you!

lyrics

We built these walls around our city,
To fight the change brought by the rising tide.
It's not your weaknesses that scare me,
It's the loss of strength and the shaking in your voice.
Like Autumn leaves, clinging to a dying tree,
Waiting on the wind to carry us away.
Through changing seasons and dead landscapes,
No lights we see to guide us home.

All we have lost, and all we leave behind.
No light we see to guide us through the darkness.
No safe harbor for a ship that's dragging anchor.
No lights in the darkness to guide us back to home.

No golden sandy beaches or lit ember skies,
The lights just go out.

Waiting on the sea to change and carry me away.
Waiting on the sea to change and carry me away.
Carry me away.

The lights just go out.
The lights just go out.
Every clock must stop.
And every shadow grows long.

Roman Lions San Jose, California

Starting as the side project of Baltimore-raised brothers Justin and Matt Tracy, Roman Lions took shape after the brothers relocated to California where they expanded their sound and their lineup.

Including former members of A Perfect Kiss, I Am Empire, and Octaves, Roman Lions combine the emotional intensity of screamo, the build-and-break grandeur of post-rock, and the heaviness of hardcore.
