From Aloud's upcoming album Apollo 6, out Spring of 2023.

"…A bluesy rocker carried by de la Osa’s fiery vocals (Aloud haven’t been compared to Alabama Shakes for nothing), stinging guitars and a relentless rhythm section. Sound effects make it pop even more. The single, officially out on Friday, is the first taste of Aloud’s new album, Apollo 6." — Buzzbands.LA


Ain’t waiting on no semaphore
Can’t mesmerize me no more
Don’t tell me when to go and stop
You gonna choke on all that shit you talk

Standing still, my mouth keeps running
Now my gun seems to keep shooting
Feet don’t run off now don’t fail me
Ain’t no one here gonna bail me out

I get up at night in sweat and doom
cos the dread inside can posses you
Well the cement in my soul it stays
and it weighs me down
my phantom anchor

Standing still, my mouth keeps running
Now my gun it seems to keep shooting off!
Feet don’t run off now don’t fail me
Damn my soul, don’t come bail me out

You’re a two-bit man in a two-bit world
Cheap champagne running down your nose
Oh yes you are
When the books get writ
and you seal your fate
no one here will know your name

You’re gonna believe in the comeback kid
You’re gonna believe I'm the comeback kid
You’re gonna believe I'm the comeback kid
Come back!

Aloud Los Angeles, California

Aloud is, in the parlance of our times, a rock n’ roll band. Since our founding in Boston in the early 2000s we’ve released 5 albums, toured coast-to-coast several times, and even landed music in a few films. We’ve called L.A. home since 2017.

Aloud is currently putting a neat little bow on Apollo 6—their follow-up album to Sprezzatura which, if you believe what the papers tell you, is very good.
