        Hello Everybody! We have great news here from the difference88 crew. After months of discussion, we have now signed with Wild Oats Records out of Nashville, TN. This is of course very exciting for us and we cannot wait to take advantage of what they are ready to offer. We owe this to everyone and anyone that has ever gone to a show, bought a demo, or showed a friend our music. This would not have been nearly as possible if it weren't for all of you that have helped spread the word and we cannot thank you enough.
        As for now, we have some busy months ahead of us. We will be spending the greater part of November down in Nashville, TN recording our debut demo with Steve Haggard, as well as playing shows. We are also hard at work designing a website that will have goodies such as new pictures, new song clips from our record, and some live video. Please visit the temporary webpage (www.difference88.com) and sign onto our mailing list to hear about upcomming events.
        Unfortunately, with all of this good news, we have just a slight bit of bad. We will be forced to cancel our November 5th show in Berlin, NH due to an important meeting we must all attend. We are hoping to make this up to most of you by adding a November 4th show at the Green Street Community Center in Concord, NH. Please try and attend!
        Please stay tuned within the next few months on our various webpages for updates on our record, upcomming show dates, and other future events. Continue to spread the word, we love you all so very much.

Griffin, Ian, Laura

PS- Lyrics:

 

The Battle

You can undertake my opening,
with meditation,
and medication.
Fix your stinging senses,
but don't intimidate me,
with antibodies,
formed from clotting.
Scar tissue left its scars
from where this starts
and the fractures fit the mold,
of the sickness you have sold.

Wake up, (wake up)
self-induce these wounds with flowing doses
of endless pain-relief,
assistance.
Assisting my heart to stay on track,
relax,
while these veins pump liberation. (liberation)

I'll be a soldier,
I refuse to surrender,
the battle's not been lost for good.
I'll be your hero,
we can talk this out for nights and days.
I refuse to surrender.

Missing cells and missing pulses,
pulse my heart to beat just longer,
I'm getting stronger
as I hold you in my arms,
because that's where you belong.

I'll be a soldier,
I refuse to surrender,
the battle's not been lost for good.
I'll be your hero,
we can talk this out for nights and days.
I refuse to surrender.

We'll plague this host,
to test his strength.
He'll flush the system
with what it takes.
We will fight, we will fight.

I'll be a soldier,
I refuse to surrender,
the battle's not been lost for good.
I'll be your hero,
we can talk this out for nights and days.
I refuse to surrender.

 

 

Mourning

I woke up in the hospital,
with nothing but the thought
of trafic lights and stop signs.
The gaurd-rail that I fought.
Shattered windshields,
and severed break-lines.
Low fuel warnings did not cross my mind
as the gas tank erupted
and shot out the tires.
I did on the freeway
and burned my soul in the fire.

And all the trees cried,
as my heart died.
They all watched me fade away.

I fought off assistance
that pumped through my veins,
and gave up on hope
after continuous pain.
This never-ending beep,
is ringing through my ear,
of a broken resperator
with its message proving clear.
That this young child
with such future ahead,
died on this night
in a vehicle instead.

And all the trees cried,
as my heart died.
They all watched me fade away.

Hey Guys and Gals.

 

By now I'm sure you've probably given up on us, but please know that we are hard at work getting another guitarist so we can get out, play shows, and write and record more music for you all.

In the midst of my insomnia, I updated our Purevolume page with the mastered versions of both Wasting In Waiting and escapetoVerona off of our 2 song demo we have sold at recent shows. I have also updated the page with a song off The Switch EP called "You'd Look So Lonely". For those of you who do not have "The Switch EP", this will be new material for you. Hope you all enjoy. Click the link below:

www.purevolume.com/difference88

 

hope you all enjoy.
we'll be back shortly.
:)

Sucking It Up and Looking Forward [02 Jun 2005|08:55pm]

difference88
So as most of you now know, over the weekend we had our last show with our great friend Brian. Thank you to everyone who came out, it really meant a lot to have a good turn out for Brians "farewell show". We will miss Brian, but wish him the best of luck in California. We strongly advise you to check out Brians side project:

www.purevolume.com/fairwhetherfriend .

Hit him up and get that boy some plays.


And as for now:
The hunt for a new guitarist begins. If anyone is interested you can get in contact with any of us or IM me (griffin) on AIM: difference88 . If you are a serious guitarist/singer, talk to us.

Talk to you all soon.

Be safe
Griffin
