Alexander Lynham More refined than their debut, Celebration Rock still continues to hit the balance of youthful enthusiasm and unjaded excitement that made Post Nothing so great; more coherent compositions make this arguably the better album as a whoie. A fantastic and vital listen. Favorite track: Younger Us.

Michael Murray noisy and beautiful... an alcohol high. 'Adrenaline Nightshift' is what a great mosh pit sounds like. More noise than a two-piece should be able to make. Favorite track: Adrenaline Nightshift.

long lit up tonight and still drinking, don't we have anything to live for? well of course we do, but 'til they come true, we're drinking and we're still smoking, don't we have anything to live for? well of course we do, but 'til they come true, we're smoking we all want to know what nobody knows what the nights of wine and roses hold for the wine and roses of our souls so we down our drinks in a funnel of friends and we burn our blends right down to the ends we don't cry for those nights to arrive we yell like hell to the heavens we all want to know what nobody knows what the nights of wine and roses hold for the wine and roses of our souls so we down our drinks in a funnel of friends and we burn our blends right down to the ends we don't cry for those nights to arrive we yell like hell to the heavens

a northern soul in southern lands will always find his way to southern hands she'll kiss away your gypsy fears and turn some restless nights to restless years hearts from hell collide on fire's highway tonight we dreamed it, now we know a soul of fire and eyes of flame tend to overwhelm her tender frame and when raw winds blew us down her city's streets she warmed my body with her spirit's heat some empty bottles, the cold sweat blues howling like outlaws from her rented room no rising sun confession, dear only a restless night i'll nurse for years hearts from hell collide on fire's highway tonight we dreamed it, now we know one night to have and to hold to let live, but never let go a northern soul in southern lands will always find his way to southern hands she'll kiss away your gypsy fears and turn some restless nights to restless years hearts from hell collide on fire's highway tonight we dreamed it, now we know

Evil's Sway 04:26
the sun lays low on a solemn city all i see is sexual red the last rays burst through between the train cars and shine directly on my head so come and find me in this moment and expose a passionate man for what he is we'll cut loose our gold 'cause we need fire and only kindling can it buy wildness is our treasure so boldly surrender to me and to the night on the lash and lashing out it's evil's sway tonight a candle's pulse is no companion when all you see is sexual red you burn away your dreams inside a journal and leave those primal words unsaid i'll run to find you in this moment and expose a passionate women for what she is we'll cut loose our gold 'cause we need fire and only kindling can it buy wildness is our treasure so boldly surrender to me and to the night on the lash and lashing out it's evil's sway tonight

you look just like an elvis from hell my heart is broken, and i'm going to hell bury me way down deep in hell i'm a steel driving man, i want to go to hell then go tell ivy for the love of ivy i did it for ivy you're the one gonna buy me a graveyard of my own and kill everyone who ever done me wrong gonna buy me a gun just as long as my arm and kill everyone who ever done me harm then go tell ivy yeah go tell ivy for the love of ivy you're the one jawbone eat and jawbone talk jawbone eat you with a knife and fork i was hunting for answers down in the dark when suddenly i had a better thought let's go hunt ivy let's go get ivy for the love of ivy you're the one i was all dressed up like elvis from hell

hitchhiked to hell and back, riding the wind waiting for a generation's bonfire to begin when the plunder of the poets, thunder of a punk's guitar beat life to my body sulking drunk at the back of a bar whoring my heart, on the wings of a western night busting my guts, on a riot dose of paradise when a red-blooded daughter, slowed my gunfire run to rest with her blitzkrieg love and a roman candle kiss there is no high like this adrenaline nightshift hurricane home to crusade alone, wounded and thin still waiting for a generation's bonfire to begin when i muscle up some money, i'll rattle the sabre of the streets cause death has no respect for love, and youth no respect for me there is no high like this adrenaline nightshift

Younger Us 03:32
remember when we had them all on the run and the night that we saw the midnight sun remember saying things like we'll sleep when we're dead and thinking this feeling was never going to end remember when we had them all on the run and the night that we saw the midnight sun remember saying things like we'll sleep when we're dead and thinking this feeling was never going to end remember that night you were already in bed said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead give me that naked new skin rush (give me younger us) give me that you and me to the grave trust (give me younger us) give me my girls learning love, wild and free (give me younger us) give me my boys and i swimming through the streets (give me younger us) give me that night you were already in bed said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead give me that naked new skin rush (give me younger us) give me that you and me to the grave trust (give me younger us) give me my girls learning love, wild and free give me younger us) give me my boys and i swimming through the streets (give me younger us) give me that night you were already in bed said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead

when the soul of the city was laid to rest and the night forgotten and left for dead i happened on a house built of living light where everything evil disappears and dies when they love you (and they will) tell them all, they'll love in my shadow and if they try to slow you down tell them all, to go to hell i settled in slowly to this house that you call home to blood and breath, fair flesh and bone blush of our bodies in the heat of the night all day, the day after, reddened the skies when they love you (and they will) tell them all, they'll love in my shadow and if they try to slow you down tell them all, to go to hell it's a lifeless life with no fixed address to give but you're not mine to die for anymore, so i must live born of a bottle from heaven's hand and now you know, and here i am when they love you (and they will) tell them all, they'll love in my shadow and if they try to slow you down tell them all, to go to hell when they love me (and they will) i'll tell them all, they'll love in your shadow and if they try to slow me down i'll tell them all, to go to hell

heart's terrain is never a prairie but you weren't wary you took my hand through the cold, pissing rain dressed to the nines arm in arm with me tonight singing out loud (like continuous thunder) heart's terrain is never a prairie but you weren't wary you took my hand through the cold, pissing rain dressed to the nines arm in arm with me tonight singing out loud (like continuous thunder) if i had all of the answers and you had the body you wanted would we love with a legendary fire? if i had all of the answers and you had the body you wanted would we love with a legendary fire? and if the cold, pissing rain flooded that fire would you still take my hand tonight? singing out loud (like continuous thunder)
