Hey everyone, this is Rob from Autopilot Off. Over the last year I have been writing music & playing bass with another great bunch of guys, including Jesse from the band With The Punches on vocals, under the name Dead Ahead. We have our first EP releasing in October, and are streaming our first track off of it today via Substream Magazine. Pop over to our Facebook page to give it a listen, and give us a like to stay up to date on the release of more songs.
Here's the link where lining them up can be downloaded 100% free. http://autopilotoffband.tumblr.com/ thanks everyone.
Here are the Lining Them Up lyrics I can handle this like I've handled this It's the same thing I've been doing all along This is how it is. So just deal with it It's the same thing I've been doing all along And it kills me and it thrills me How Fucked up I can get and I'm still asking, "why?" For your troubles and for mine For my secrets for my lies Forget it. Go on, line them up Again. Go. I can't live with this like I've lived with this Its the same thing I've been doing all along And I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. It's the same thing I've been doing all along. And I mean it and I need it So Fucked up I forget and I'm still asking, "why?" For the anger and the hate For the catch and for the bait Forget it. Go on, line them up again For The truth and the deceit For the guilt and the relief Forget it. Go on, line them up again. Each night, for me, it's the same dream repeated. That I'm someone good, doing what I should. Then I wake up wishing I could stay asleep. For the want and for the hope For the anchor and the rope Forget it. Go on, line them up again. For the madness and the shame For the worry and the pain Forget it. Go on, line them up again. Oh God forgive me (I'll line them up and you throw them down) Forget it, please don't line them up again. Oh God forgive me. Forgive me. Forget it. Please don't line them up again.
Just a heads up to everyone. Since we exceeded the allowed amount of free downloads on bandcamp, they give no other option than to charge listeners for downloading the songs, which is something that we are not interested in doing, so we have closed that page. we will be announcing a new link where all our new songs will be available to download for free this coming week. In the meantime you can still stream the songs on soundcloud at: https://soundcloud.com/autopilotoffny
Hey everyone....take a minute to check out our friend Mike's band The Racer. They are a great rock band based in the Hudson Valley where we are from. Right now they have a Kickstarter campaign underway for the new record.... Great music, from a great bunch of guys... check it out, and give a little towards their project if you can. Thanks!!!
Here are the When I Was Young Lyrics When I Was Young When I was young I saw no signs Followed the roads Where they would wind I stayed up all night Saw each sunrise Thought I was smart Thought I was wise I threw pennies in a wishing well I left unread books up on a shelf When I was young When I was young I struggled and fought Because what I had Was never enough I smoked cigarettes down to the butt I’d empty a glass then fill it up And of faith and trust I learned a lot About what they were And what they were not When I was young Just like a sleepwalker unconsciously steps I took for granted those days It feels like forgiveness is the cure for regret And that finally shook me awake For every love and every friend I feel blessed. Guess I’ve always been. And I know that now Just didn’t know it then When I was young.
Here are the Alcologic lyrics: Alcologic With every sip I taste those days I slip a little more away And there’s just no time for this I find a hundred things to blame I swear to God that I’m insane And there’s just no time for this No And I pray for a miracle, but I don’t know. Yeah I pray for a miracle, but I want more. “Just calm down you’ll be OK” Is just a lie I used to say And there’s just no time for this And making up for my mistakes Is just another pill I have to take And there’s just no time for this No And I pray for a miracle, but I don’t know Yeah I pray for a miracle, still I want more With every sip I taste those days I slip a little more away And there’s just no time for this I turn the black and white to grey My special brand of alchemy And there’s just no time for this No. It’s good to see you again. I missed you, my old friend Then I turn away and you turn away Tonight we’ll have these dreams. Tonight we’ll fall Asleep. And you turn away and I turn away and you turn away and I turn away and you turn away and I turn away then you turn away and I turn……………
A big thank you to everyone for the overwhelming response to our new songs. Since we have unexpectedly exceeded the free download limits on Soundcloud, here is a simple alternate link to directly download both songs: http://www.americaniconmerch.com/AutopilotOff2014songs.zip http://www.americaniconmerch.com/AutopilotOff2014songs.zip
The wait is over............ Here is a link to two new songs that we are releasing for free download. This has been an ambitious project for us, encompassing the past several months. We handled all aspects of production ourselves, working on weekends and whenever our collective personal schedules would permit. It has taken a long time to generate anything finished, but it has been worth it to us to do our songs our way. We hope you enjoy them, and hope that we can complete more in the future. -Chris J, Chris H, Rob, and Phil
Hey everyone...this is Rob from Autopilot Off. Shortly after we put APO on the back burner at the end of 2004, I went on to start a screen printing company here in NY. In the days since last weeks hurricane we have put together a benefit tee with all funds going toward the Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts in the tri-state area. click the link below to order a shirt today. Any support is greatly appreciated! Thanks! - Rob/Autopilot Off
Day 2 of our recording process and we've got the drums wrapped up our first batch of new songs in almost 9 years. It almost seems impossible that 9 years have gone by without us putting something down on tape, but we're just happy to be back at it and that there are people out there who are interested. In those 9 years we all have accomplished many different things that have fulfilled our lives in ways that we'd never imagined, but, through all that time, at all the different barbecues, weddings, and shows we've gone to together, the 4 of us have always talked about getting back to music when the time was right for all of us. I guess we should be happy it only took 9 years… Since enough people have been asking, we thought we'd give the quick summary of our constantly evolving and changing ideas about where this stage of Autopilot Off is going to go and the answer to that question is: we don't know. We do know this much, we've got no plans of stopping when it comes to writing and recording new music and sharing it with anyone who is interested. Anyone who plays music knows that there's nothing better than getting together with friends, cooking some food, having some laughs, and playing music that you all love. That feeling isn't our only motivation for getting together to put some new songs down properly on tape; we easily could have just gotten together a few times a month to play and been very happy with that. We never realized how many people out there still followed our band or had discovered APO after we had stopped performing and that really is what motivated us to get into the studio to do some new songs. Thanks to all of you for pushing us to this point. So, back to the current recording, we're doing everything in our home studio/rehearsal space and we're doing it all ourselves. We were really enjoying doing everything the way just the four of us wanted and the freedom to do things on our schedule was just too appealing. We learned so much from all the great people we have worked with over the years and, even though there's always more to learn, we're enjoying the feeling of the way it was when this band started; just four people making music together. We do have to thank our good friend Mike Perri for engineering our drum tracks. Phil is the only one who really knows how to run all of this stuff and there's no way for him to play and record, so Mike jumped in to help get it done. We'll keep everyone updated on how the process moves along; we're hoping we can keep on a good pace of getting things done as time allows. We will leave you with this one piece of info that we hope will please anyone who is interested in hearing our new songs: when the recording process is complete will we immediately be releasing some music for you all to download. As soon as Phil gives the ok on it being finished, there will be songs up on our Facebook page for all of you to enjoy and share. Thanks again to everyone for giving us the motivation to get this done…we're having a great time.
