about

Introducing our brand new single "Where Voodoo Sleeps" !

"Where Voodoo Sleeps" was inspired by a band trip to New Orleans provided by our long-time friend and fellow outlaw, Logan South. In the weeks preceding the trip, the music and lyrics came to Lyle in a dream. He cut a demo the next day, the band learned it, and the song was debuted in New Orleans last October during a performance at a special event. The song was originally going to be included on the upcoming album, but because of its unique, voodoo-inspired vibe and lyrics, the band decided to record it as a stand-alone single. It will not be included on any other release. The artwork is by Juha Vuorma, the artist behind the band's popular "Drink With the Living Dead" video.

lyrics

WHERE VOODOO SLEEPS

seven days from Halloween
in the year of ‘91
I met a girl whose witchy ways
caught me with her touch
we rode the nights beyond
the fetters of our chains
to a land upon the coast
where magic burns like flames

chorus:
New Orleans bound
that’s where we can be found
among the ghosts and the graves
and the voodoo queens
she comes to me in a fever dream
riding southern winds for eternity
in the land where voodoo sleeps
in the land where voodoo sleeps

revelry upon the streets
where faces paint the night
we tipped the drinks and laughed the laugh
until the morning light
then to the shadows we returned
within our tryst
as magic swells an ageless spell
upon our haunted kiss

we were bathed in the moonlight fires
where rituals are sung
we were bound in the crimson flames
where lovers melt as one
feeling so alive inside
the heat of our embrace
on the sultry midnight coast
the passion comes in waves
