VIDEO: Adicript – “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”

Here’s a new lyric video from prog rockers Adicript of their song, “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”. A dynamic song structure makes you think and the musical styling / heavy grit will make you want to throw some chairs around the room. Keep an eye out for these guys as they rock more and more heads in Sonoma County.

BIO: Adicript is a Santa Rosa based progressive rock band that strives to bring an uncompromising blend of technical musicianship and accessibility. The band formed in early 2013, with the creative chemistry between guitarist George Allen Cudworth and drummer David Gray as the catalyst, and the addition of singer Dustin Covington as the final piece of the puzzle. Since then, the trio has played numerous gigs, recorded the Ad Initium EP, and produced a large body of constantly evolving material, carefully crafting and refining their sound into something truly special. With George’s driving and articulate guitar work, David’s dynamic and layered drumming, and Dustin’s soaring melodies and poignant lyrics, the band hopes to share their musical vision with the world, and to do their part to bring rock back to the forefront of the music scene.

A Big *Thank You*

It’s great when even just a few people come out and share their music with us all. Today’s Unsigned Acoustic Broadcast was a success to us because of the great talent that came by and helped bring some new, live original performances to the Internet.

A big shout-out to Jamie and Mel, Justin and Sally, and our third act Jamie (yes – a second Jamie) for bringing some amazing live original music to SoCoRock Radio and Live Musicians Co-op. We’ll be posting pictures and audio here in the next few days for everyone to enjoy.

Lyrics:

We’re just scraping the bowls of our pipe dreams
Finding means with our noses in the corner
In room well lit and infinite
Making province on tradition and pocket lint
Painted skies, thick primer normalcy
Red meat and my bootstrap gumption
21 gun salute
To bid adieu to salvation
Perfect morons beat chests
For oxymoronic bliss
Star spangled smiles ain’t biased
Because god’s on our side, choke down the biggest lie
Belaboring naïveté
You trip on truth like a bad drug
In a life of severed tongues I’m taking cause with
My psychedelic mouth
Well you wrote the song that started the whole world dying
And I sing, sing, sing
We coexist in dissonance, you are the blindfold hymn
I’m the caged bird beating my lungs
And leave here breathless
I don’t mind
I cleanse these lungs of stale air
This nothing you cycle to us
No matter the amount of time
No matter if they collapse
Nor if I’m the death or life of the matter
This is a matter of fact
Well you wrote the song that started the whole world dying
And I sing, sing, sing
We coexist in dissonance, you are the blindfold hymn
I’m the caged bird beating my lungs
Star spangled smiles ain’t biased
Because god’s on our side, choke down the biggest lie
Belaboring naïveté
You trip on truth like a bad drug
I distort the wool in your eyes taking cause with
My psychedelic mouth
