Cops called or maybe not? We were waiting outside, just for a ride Got you hanging out of the side of your car It sounds funny now, it just was what it was but I could back down, just tell me what you want from me We should hang out, when everybody’s fast asleep Then we made out, and I got lost inside your sheets I could freak out, just looking at your face Because when you wear my favorite smile It makes me weak, in my knees You see Non stop you’re in my head I’ve been hanging onto the words that you said Got you hanging off of the foot of your bed Wind up falling off and the floor hits your head Can’t keep quiet now, every time we try to we wind up loud, but you know it’s Non stop you’re in my head I keep hanging onto the things that we did You came around, a handshake and a lost exchange So tell me right now, I thought about it everyday Then I came down, and I got lost inside your brain I could freak out, looking at your face Because when you wear my favorite smile It makes me weak in my knees Oh please You know that I could stare, for quite a while Til my eyes reflect your teeth, you’ll see You know it’s gonna take time Don’t wanna come off out of line But if it feels right You can lay your leg on me the whole night You know it’s gonna take time Don’t wanna come off out of line You can lay your head on me the whole night Because you wear my favorite smile It makes me weak, in my knees You see Doesn’t make sense, stuck in my head, Swore I was dreaming until I pinched off all my skin Because you wear my favorite smile It makes me weak, in my knees Oh jeez You know that I could stare, for quite a while Til my eyes reflect your teeth, you’ll see You know it’s gonna take time Don’t wanna come off out of line It fucking feels right Just to have here you with me the whole night

ROY 02:52
Here’s to feeling like an idiot And fucking looking like one too Gave the same goodbye to every lie Cause they’re old and you knew When you take it too serious Giving up is what you gotta do For a break come on you need them a lot When you know that you’re through Living a life to fucking work a job Stay up watch TV all night long No joke, that’s how it goes When you feel like catching up with me Fucking off is what you gotta do It’s a joke come on I tell them a lot For the worse tell the truth When I took it too serious Giving up was what I had to do For a break come on I need them a lot You know that I’m through When you’ve gotten used to Living a life to fucking work a job Stay up watch TV all night long No joke, that’s how it goes I’m just a guy who fucking loves his dog I can’t take pills so I smoke pot No joke, that’s how it goes It’s how it goes And it’s no joke I heard you really thought I sold drugs, I helped my friends do it once and just cause Utah made me think that acid was cool I bet you think I’m still throwing up well guess what I never was, what you thought But you’re always right so why not accuse? I’m glad I got that shit covered up, I hope it drives you fucking nuts there’s no god Well at least not for satan themselves It feels like we thinned out the blood but I’m good to go cause there’s no point In me hanging to just Peak your interest What’s the difference? Yeah fuck you Try something different

Top Drawer 01:48
Gotta break the news, you’re so damn cool You take shots a lot, do cocaine too Now your eyes are lined for beetle juice But you waste, every fucking day Look at all the waves you surf in on Bend and break too much, your smiles lost Now you’re hurt, you say, just to dodge the job But you waste, every fucking day Wait Top drawer, gotta get away from You or, maybe I’ll just stay home Not sure, what’s really fucking going on You waste, every fucking day You used to call Nothing at all Let’s go What’s it like to hate, every fucking day Because you waste, every fucking day

Gwendolyn 03:19
Here I am again At the Long Island railroad and It just cost me a severed limb to go meet up with my man But that’s okay because We get messed up with his uncle but He’s really not his uncle just his mother’s old best friend Crazy to think someday we’d be uncles like that Oh Gwendolyn I’ve been holding all this in Just trying to find the right way to tell you I’ll mess up again Just know I never wanted to fail you Here it is again The same white home that it’s always been Maybe not but you get it if You’ve been here for it Right I’m running late because I always am But I used to not Swear that there’s so much I used to Got to get used to Getting back up For Gwendolyn I’ve been holding all this in Just trying to find the right words to tell you I’ll mess up again It’s just when I was put on the earth to Do time and again But baby girl I needed to tell you My only Gwendolyn Just know I never wanted to fail you Just wish I was a little more like you So you know, I was wrong You were right, all along So you know, I was wrong You were right, don’t fucking make me say it come on So you know, I was wrong You were right, all along So you know, I was wrong Hope it keeps you warm Here it is again The same old place that I’ll always land Wide eyed stare at the ceiling since I know that shits caving in Maybe you’ll be that thing that lets me get some rest My Gwendolyn I’ve been holding all this in Just trying to find the right words to tell you I’ll fuck up again It’s just what men were put on the earth to Do time and again But baby girl I needed to tell you My only Gwendolyn Just know I never wanted to fail you All I ever wanted was you
5.
Think you’re a monster, I do yeah I think I hear ya, in my head Up in my attic, you’re back, Like an addict again I got to kill ya, till you’re dead Something goes wrong and it’s calling all cars like that You got no one to hit up so you sound your alarm so fast Too fast, in fact I gotta call you right back I told you that the plan was no plan Been waiting on the train to get in And then I’m gonna call you right back Maybe I could never come home Feels like forever, I’m still here Waiting on never, it’s so clear It’s such a problem, I thought I could solve, and I can’t I got to kill ya, now you’re dead Something goes wrong and it’s calling all cars like that You got no one to hit up so you sound your alarm so fast Too fast, in fact I gotta call you right back I told you that the plan was no plan Been waiting on the train to get in And then I’m gonna call you right back Maybe I could never come home You’ve got too many questions I just don’t know None of the answers, to all of your questions, absurd I gotta call you right back I told you that the plan was no plan Been waiting on my train to get in And then I’m gonna call you right back But then I gotta go Right back I told you that the plan was no plan Been waiting on the train to get in And then I’m gonna call you right back Maybe I can never come home Something goes wrong and it’s calling all cars like that
6.
Way It Goes 03:05
Used to tell me that less is more but it’s Not always that way I’m sure cause I’m Staring out an open door and you’re Still telling me best to close and not go Like everyone I know That’s just the way it goes Get high all the time but I’m still so low Makes it more hard than it already was That’s just the way it goes Place your waves in my brain sometimes but you Just crash them you never ride don’t you Hold onto that stupid shit that I Said to you, was just a kid but I know It’s nothing someone wants That’s just the way it goes Get high all the time but I’m still so low Makes it more hard than it already was That’s just the way it goes Don’t I know Now why would you call me that? I’ve been trying to find the right time to call you back I’ve been trying to find out why you would even call me that Then I’ll try to find the right time to call you back Everything will be just fine Talkings just a waste of time Everything will be alright Feel like going out tonight All I was trying to say was You don’t have to be jealous All I was trying to say was Don’t call me back to hang up That’s just the way it goes Get high all the time but I’m still so low Makes it more hard than it already was That’s just the way it goes I know
7.
Frequent 02:56
From girl if you wanted I could call you every night or just weekends We could find a middle ground let me know if Maybe we could work it out What’s it about? To driving our way up Along the ocean, where you’re from to where I’m from Pulling over in the ice and the snow but Something tells I’ll be warm In your arms I’d like to frequent you Be something you hate that you know you do Be something you’d quit if you could but you can’t and you’re stuck with it I’d like to frequent you Do you too? And if it gets awkward You can blame it all on me I’m the chauffeur For un-comfortability, I’ve got no words That’s why I’m still just waving hey Been trying to say That I’d like to frequent you Be something you hate that you know you do Like something you’d quit if you could but you can’t and you’re stuck with it I’d like to frequent you Do you too? Been hanging off, by my limb It’s more like a broken branch Upon a plant, we never fed Then still wondered who why when and how it’s dead? But it’s plastic I know that doesn’t make much sense But still it is, what it is It gets old real quick You won’t get used to it
8.
Woke up particularly depressed I know, it’s not nobody’s fault yet So broke, been waiting on a late check Fuck off, I don’t think it’ll change that Sink in, to certain paranoia Real quick, it’s over when you’re over I’m not, the one to say what’s what but It’s just, that obvious that What you got hired to say Is what you’re required to think Like this could be fire maybe You seem like a liar to me Unknown, to anyone who’s someone So stoned, the loneliness seems fun but It’s not, except for when it is and I know, that doesn’t make sense What you got hired to say Is what you’re required to think Like this could be fire maybe You seem like a liar to me See what you’ve been wired to think Is what you’re required to say You might be on fire baby But now you’re a liar to me See I’ve been waiting all this time Stuck in the back of the line You see me cry and said it’s fine So now you do it every time You got hired to say What you’re required to think Like this could be fire maybe You seem like a liar to me See what you’ve been wired to think Is what you’re required to say You might be on fire baby But now you’re a liar to me Woke up, particularly depressed Just cause, it’s not nobody’s fault yet It’s not, except for when it is and I know, that doesn’t make sense Let’s get home
9.
IDC 02:54
Ah shit I’m so sad, how do I get Me to quit doing that? Is it all in my head? Just like you said About that And anything else I did Or didn’t I guess, this place is a wreck That’s what I said See now you can’t pull back, while you push me away You got the whole night left, to get back to our place Hurts me really bad but then again it’s cool to say I don’t care About that Or anything else I guess You’re bored of our sex, and I’m such a mess That’s what I get See now you can’t pull back, while you push me away You got your whole life left, to get back to that place Hurts me really bad but then again I’ll tell my friends I don’t care It gets bad And worse right after that You’re sick of my shit, I wish I was dead That’s where I’m at See now you can’t pull back, while you push me away You got your whole life left to get back to that place Where someone said “you should do this okay?” And then you answered back, when you threw me away Hurts me really bad but then again it’s cool to say, that I’m okay Lie and tell my friends that I don’t give a shit because I don’t
10.
High Pick 02:03
Taking down the pictures and names from my shelf After looking over numbers, they won’t serve me well with their Plans on going away Wind up telling me everything I’m not Giving it up Even if I’m Acting like somebody else You know that I’m not Break it all up for me now When you can’t trust no one else Given the pictures and names on my shelf If I, take a break from numbers it might serve me well since I Planned on just saying hey I go on fucking up everything I’m not Giving it up Even if I’m Acting like somebody else You know that I’m not Break it all up for me now When you can trust no one else You can only blame yourself Saw it in a way Coming from a mile away Feel it in my bones Every time you burn me out my home Break that shit up! See you can trust no one else So you only blame yourself
11.
You're Cool 03:00
When we got introduced you only met my body cause I wasn’t back to life yet, my heart had been dead for months But now it’s, all night most of every morning Tripping so much you got me falling Face first, don’t want a pick me up You’re cool, makes me feel uncool I guess I hope, that it isn’t obvious You’re so cold, I don’t really mean to laugh But you’re cool, makes me wanna quit See I keep getting stuck on, the ways that you wear your hair And smiling stupid big when I’m caught in my wide eyed stare Which is like, all day most of every night got Fucked up, slept and missed my flight but All good, think that I’ll stay right here You’re cool, makes me feel uncool I guess I hope, that it isn’t obvious You’re so cold, I don’t really mean to laugh But you’re cool, makes me wanna quit I guess I’ll see you around I guess we’ll figure it out We’re always on the way I’m always running late You’re cool, makes me feel uncool I guess I hope, that it isn’t obvious You’re so cold, I don’t really mean to laugh But you’re cool, makes me wanna quit You open my eye’s color blinds
12.
Crashed your car into the lake Cause the water looked so great Now you’re cold, you wished you’d known Yeah you probably should’ve known If your body’s going numb You can take mine if you want Thought you probably should’ve known Said you know But you got no Swear I’ve seen you before Said you got no Think I’ve heard it before Said you got no Ain’t I been here before? Guess you got no, way to know Way to know Asked you out a million times Made a point to say you might Then you thought I should get told Your mom says that you can’t go I got great at taking bad news Now I stay in my bad mood Bet you probably could’ve known Said I know I just got no Swear I’ve seen you before Yeah I got no Think I’ve heard it before Said I got no Ain’t I been here before? Yeah I got no, way to know Way to know What’s it look like? What’s it taste like? What’s it feel like? Why? Can’t I be right? At least one time Left me lying in the street Made that sign that read “end me” First I said it’s just a joke Now I’m dead And I got no Swear I’ve seen you before Said I got no Think I’ve heard it before Yes I got no Ain’t I been here before? Yeah I got no Swear I’ve seen you before Said I got no Think I’ve heard it before Fucking got no Ain’t I been here before? Yeah I got no, way to know Way to know Cause I’m no Deja voodoo doll

about

***Vinyl Will Ship September***

After spending the better part of a decade honing their craft, Bad Luck. presents the best version of themselves to date with Summer of Pain. The twelve-song collection serves as a bridge between childhood ambition and adult realism by exploring the underlying tension of romanticism in our modern world. It's a record about love and sadness that aspires to give listeners a much-needed reality check. Bad Luck. wants to pull you into the present and make you fully aware of your existence.

"We want our being, presence, and band to be socially active," says co-founder Dominick Fox. We want people to know who we are, where we're from, and what we stand for, all of which is laid out in this album."

Stories of heartache, growth, setbacks, and personal triumphs comprise much of the material found on Summer of Pain. The members of Bad Luck. — Dominick Fox, Joe Fox, Charlie Caruso, and Michael Sichel — are documenting the journey of life as it unfolds. The songs do not reflect the beginning of an adventure nor fixate on endings. It's about the messy parts in the middle. Their music is a form of meditation where the members fiercely focus on the work between them and the people they hope to become. It's a document of progress, or lack thereof, told as truthfully as possible.

As Summer of Pain grapples with the difficult task of self-analysis, Bad Luck. delivers accessible punk music that pulls from blends of Northeastern cynicism with the pop-influenced optimism. The band understands that being alive is a gift. Even if everything you have right now falls apart and you find yourself forced to start over again and again, Bad Luck. knows that it is better to experience all that life has to offer than to live a life of quiet desperation. Summer of Pain is their way of making sure those entangled in the struggle know that they are not alone. Times may be bad right now, but the seasons will change, and so will you.

Summer Of Pain is out July 9th on 12"/CD/DIgital
