about

We were planning on releasing this new EP, Undefeated Volume II, right about now before the handful of shows I had planned out west. We're finishing up the EP now, with everyone recording their parts remotely. For now, here's a song from it. This one's called "Without a War". It was written back in January when it looked like we were about to go to war with Iran. A couple of months later, it's taken new meaning.

We'll be donating all of the proceeds from this song and EP to those in need as well, with some of it going to the staff of music venues in Chicago.

The rest of the EP should be available in a few weeks. And once we're able to, we're going to take these songs on the road.

lyrics

I'll dance at every wedding
With or without a few drinks
I'll listen while my uncle tells me
Everything he things
I'll volunteer at least
A couple times a week
I won't leave my dirty dishes
In the sink
Or complain when my back,
Neck or legs feel sore
If we get through this year without a war

If we get through this year without a war
I'll shop only at local, independent stores
I'll run marathons
And walk for every kind of cure
If we get through this year without a war

I'll run for local office
Or at least know the people who
Care about the living
More than the price of crude
I'll hike every mountain
From sea to shining sea
I'll bike everywhere
I need to be
I'll ask myself what all of
The anxiety was for
If we get through this year without a war

If we get through this year without a war
I'll sleep on a thousand more stranger's floors
And know exactly what it is
That I am touring for
If we get through this year without a war
