Aloud Los Angeles, California

Great music has something it's almost impossible to capture: soul. Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa have been the soul of Aloud since they were teenagers in Miami. A shared passion for rock classics like The Beatles, Oasis, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding led the pair to start writing and recording their own songs. The two pursued making music, fell in love, eventually marrying. ... more

Track Name: Sometimes I Feel Like A Vampire
Let’s go on the offensive
We’ll take down all the fences
Wipe the sweat from your dark brow
There’s no holding us back now

I can’t smile with a straight face
As my mind becomes unlaced
So uptight with perfect grace

We’ll go on the offensive
Life is so fucking senseless
All this silence grows too loud
There’s no holding us back now

Sometimes I feel like a vampire
Living off of this empire
What to do, what to do now?
It’s what’s holding me back now
It’s what’s holding us back now
Track Name: The Last Time
You say goodbye, my baby
With a heavy heart I’ll let you go
Some things you never count on
Other things are better left unknown
The end will be like the beginning for us
I promise

Hold me close
Tonight may be the last time
Your eyes meet mine
Will be the last time

Greedy men and human nature
Walk the streets and cruise our grocery stores
In the name of pride and justice
They would dare to strip away both

You say goodbye my baby
My heavy heart it grows and grows
Those devils who’d erase you
They don’t know the lengths to which I’d go
Track Name: Julie
You step outside
And smoke your cigarette
You’re so mature
You never seem to fret
Those eyes
Abandon all contact
Your painted lips
Add color to the facts

But oh, Julie then you’ll see
When you run back to me

So demure
With what you would reveal
We all know
The pain is very real

And I
Know what makes you tick
You repeat
Until it makes you sick
Track Name: Fan The Fury
There’s a burning in my belly
in my wallet, and my head
I read the papers, watch the news
I raise a fist and go to bed
It’ll only get worse in the coming days
I might as well say what I been meaning to say
Oh won’t you fan the fury of an outraged jury?

Been with the program up to now
and it’s become a little much
To make believe you and reality
have been keeping in touch
Desperate times call for desperate measures
Brother you look pretty desperate to me

Was it all part of your plan
To frame a guilty man?
You had me holding my breath
Truth was you had nothing left
Brother, I want to believe
Brother, I need to believe… you
I want to believe
I will not believe you

There’s a meeting Monday morning
with the suits out in the hall
They tapped the wires and the telephones
in case you tried to call
Blessed be this monarchy
I never thought we’d have a dynasty
Track Name: Murder Will Out
What’d you expect?
How long you think you’d get away with it?
You tried pushing your luck
Now you might have to give up the basic things
Back of the line
back of the line
back of the…

You’ll do your time
You’ll do your time
You’ll do your…

No mercy here
For you to throw yourself on
This blank check won’t clear
Your lies have finally
caught up
caught up
caught up
With all the facts

Sincerity is the new cliché
Rehab politeness
It’s just an apology away
Well, look who’s lucky now?

Money won’t help, won’t let you walk
Murder will out the slyest fox
Nothing will help you outta this jam
You’re acting pretty cool,
but you’ll soon give a damn
Track Name: You Got Me Wrong
We can make it if we
get it together
We want the same things, but
not how to get there
It’s a waste of our time
all of this arguing
I’m trying to understand,
but you’re not listening.
Don’t you know you got me wrong?

It’s awful tempting to be so fatalistic
It’s overrated and a bit sadistic
I’d like to figure it out
I’m in agreement with that
I’d like to know what you think
Well, I ain’t holding back

We can get it together
Only those who’d like to see us fail
Would never want it to better
Curiosity’s a coffin nail.

Don’t you know you they got us wrong?
We knew it all along.
Track Name: Nero
Rinse, repeat, water it down
These boring beats are all around
Play it on the radio until you play it out some more
Advertise out on the air
Sanitize the public square
Squeak it till it’s squeaky clean and make it kinda
sore inside
Rock n’ roll prophets going down with the ship
Taken from us like the warmth of the sun
Swiveling their truths like they’ve been
swiveling their hips
An honest life’s work is never truly done.
Never truly done
Never truly

A programmed television
personality revision
Will tell me facts and figures that will contradict the last thing said
A witchhunt or inquisition can be
disguised as patriotism
to undermine the audience and
shear the fleece of men

We need a leader or a superhero
Not a zero acting like he’s Nero
But we can never get high if we ain’t ever been low
And like the passing of time, this too shall go.
Goodbye, Nero.

Tantalize from head to toe at the crib of Nero
They play the lyre while the city burns.
Track Name: Hard Up In The 2000s
No change between us
for the parking meter
I hope Rita
will keep her distance
I can’t afford another ticket, oh no.
You say it’s times like these
You want to squeeze my hand
I say with days like these,
What chance do other days stand?
(No chance at all)
Though it feels like we’re going down
There’s something in your eyes that
keeps me coming around
When it feels like we’re getting nowhere
I sit with you in silence
to converse in deep stares

You say you don’t, don’t, don’t
Want to get married in the church
It’s alright
I’ll take the rap, I’ll take the rap
Let them call me the Antichrist
Oh, Christ

When it feels like it can’t be done
“No” is not an option, not where we’re from
And I put no stock in no ever-after
If it’s the last thing we do
We’ll squash the monster
Track Name: The Battle Of Love
It never pays, never pays, never pays
to be nice to a villain
Compromise, compromise, compromise
and they do right on stealing
On the streets, on the streets, on the streets it’s World War III
And the truth is the only thing I’m owed
I keep working for what I’ll never know
This is the battle of love
Love and faith

It’s hard to find, hard to find, hard to find
find a genuine resistance
That generates, generates, generates
something other than indifference
In my heart, in my heart, in me heart
is what’s right and wrong
And the truth is the only thing I’m owed
I keep on working for devils I don’t know

When you’re helpless and hopeless
it causes a certain reaction
To be here in the now at the heart
and the center of action
You gotta give, gotta give, gotta give
like it’s the latest trend
And your reasons,
your reasons are the seed
Don’t you know
you’re part of a new breed?
Track Name: When The Ants Attack The Queen
I – there is no “I” in “team”
But Jack did believe
that’s someone else’s wet dream
He built up these tracks
with the sweat of his back
Gone along for the ride
It was still suicide
It’s sad
Went from riches to rags
When the ants attack the queen
It’s the greatest thing I’ve seen

There they were, face to face
She was such a disgrace
Feeding off of his trust,
his contempt,
and his lust
Jack smiled
The smile of a madman is that of a child

When the ants attack the queen
It’s the greatest thing I’ve seen
It’s the greatest thing I’ve seen
Track Name: Backs To The Wall
So many of us underground
You could swim, though you’d probably drown
But your mind is already made up
And you do things to hate
to protect all the people you love
I know we can make it fall
If enough have our backs to the wall
Yeah, I know it won’t change a damn thing
Politicians will steal all our youth
As they squander our dreams

My heart, it beats so slow
Yeah, when I realize
that I may be wrong
But regardless, rebellion’s my answer
when they offer none

You and I sing an urban hymn
The richest of men can’t deny
That a song lifts hope to a thousand feet
Our last defense in life

I know we can make it fall
If enough have our backs to the wall

Yeah I know we can make it fall
Track Name: Justice & Forgiveness
Maybe I put too much in
fairy tales of life and sin
Beginner’s dogma in my hands
I defy the magic tomes
Mistaking steel for flesh and bone
I found my own ground to stand

Getting hard to make the case
Defending honor to save face
Ignoring all the hell it brings

I just want to witness
Justice and forgiveness
