about

1840 is much different than our previous EPs, as it's more of a transitional piece leading up to our full length album to be released around March 2013. The first track on the EP is a new song called "HOPE & SMOKE." The other two, "THE BLUR" & "FORWARD" you may notice are re-done versions of our previous tracks, "The Blur Ensues" & "Frigid Stares." This isn't for a lack of ability to create new material, but over the years in playing these songs they eventually grew into the way you hear them recorded on 1840. Don't get us wrong, we still love the old versions of these tracks as well, but we feel like we got them right this time. Thanks again everyone for your support - it's immensely appreciated by each one of us and we can't thank you enough.

Track Name: Hope & Smoke
Hold it in close
Whimper secrets in a faith we call our own
Beyond the tide we drift afloat
Out in the blue, we hold for truth

And I can't find a way
Complacent in casualty

I need to know
Before we fold under hope
and smoke
At this time, tomorrow
we'll go

Jester of the choke
Golden ticket to a bliss we call our home
Carried on for the fight of buried folk
Looking up, knowing truth

We find in casualty
The riddle is to the grand charade

I need to know
Before we fold under hope
and smoke
At this time, tomorrow
we'll go

We'll know, we'll know, we'll go
Track Name: The Blur
The ups and the downs
On my own, I doubted you
So bury the cold with the burn let the blur ensue

In silence, don't move
Any sound in a fragile room
Could break me
I know, down low

Sight of the scars looking down
From above I knew
A burden below buried deep
Hiding from the truth

I silence, I couldn't move
Not a sound when I broke the news
Could break me
I know, down low

Sliding to the floor....
Track Name: Forward
Cold flood is burdening
Drowned out, moving forward
Smoldered
Your frigid stares are loosing
Who cares?
There's no blue down here

A line defined
I’m enthralled to the wall
It’s something to look for
It’s something to shoot for
You missed your line this time
Abashed let the whirlwind fly around you
Disorient to come to
A form of clarity

Forward, forward
The water is rushing
A deadly art - oh no
Pulling down, further down, speaking out
loving you

Forward, I'm forward
Down here
It’s closer now
You’ve almost found
Harmony
Just keep what you’re working on
Close, as if nothing’s wrong
Don't try to take it personal

Forward, forward
The water is rushing
A deadly art - oh no
Pulling down, further down, speaking out
loving you
