about

ROBES IS A FOUR-PIECE ROCK ACT BORN IN NYC. THE BAND BOASTS SOME SEASONED GENTLEMEN WITH ROOTS IN 90’S D.I.Y. ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. GUITAR PLAYER AND VOCALIST DREW DEMAIO HELPED IMPRINT GAINESVILLE FLORIDA ONTO THE POST-HARDCORE MAP AS HIS MUSICAL ENDEAVORS CRUSHED THROUGH AUDIENCES WITH PERFORMANCES IN BANDS SUCH AS GUS, STRIKEFORCE DIABLO, ARGENTINA, ASSHOLE PARADE AND FLOOR. AFTER HIS TIME IN FLORIDUH HAD RUN ITS COURSE, DEMAIO, ULTIMATELY FOUND HIMSELF DESIRING A MOVE AND DECIDED TO MAKE A LIFE FOR HIMSELF IN NEW YORK CITY. BASSIST AND VOCALIST DAVE DIEM IS A VETERAN OF THE SAME SCENE. HE PARTICIPATED BY ROCKING OUT WITH TWELVE HOUR TURN. FOLLOWING THE BAND’S END, DAVE PURSUED A CAREER AS A SCHOOL TEACHER. DIEM, TOO, EVENTUALLY RELOCATED TO NYC WHERE HE STAYED CLOSE WITH DREW. FEELING THEY HAD STRAYED TOO FAR FROM THEIR MUSICAL PASSIONS, THE TWO BEGAN TO COLLABORATE, WRITING AND SHARING IDEAS OFTEN THROUGH E-MAIL.

JEFF GENSTERBLUM HAILS FROM MICHIGAN AND HAS PLAYED THE DRUMS WITH MUCH HARD HITTING ENTHUSIASM FOR SMALL BROWN BIKE, ABLE BAKER FOX, UNWED, STATES AND KINGDOMS, AND YOUR SKULL MY CLOSET, TO NAME A FEW. JEFFERSON KNEW DIEM AND DEMAIO AS NO IDEA LABEL MATES AND TOUR PARTNERS. WHEN HE MOVED TO BROOKLYN, IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE HE HOOKED UP WITH HIS OLD COLLEAGUES.

VOCALIST AND GUITAR PLAYER PETER BARTSOCAS, ANOTHER FLORIDA NATIVE, AND NOW BROOKLYN TRANSPLANT, HAS DESTROYED WITH PAGAN GIRLS, AS FRIENDS RUST, AND BIRD OF ILL OMEN. CLOSE FRIENDS WITH DREW, THE TWO OFTEN TALKED OF TAKING THE STAGE TOGETHER. TIRED OF COMPOSING SONGS ON THEIR COMPUTERS, DEMAIO AND DIEM DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO AGAIN PLUG IN AND ROCK OUT LIVE. ENLISTING THE TALENTS OF THEIR OLD FRIENDS BARTSOCAS AND GENSTERBLUM, THE FOUR BEGAN TO COLLABORATE AND REFINE THE TUNES DAVE AND DREW HAD BEEN DEVELOPING. THE FULL FORCE OF ROBES WAS FINALLY REALIZED.

This is Robes' first offering. 'Unholy Moon' is a single found on "INDECLINE" LP b/w 'Sirens' only found on this 7".

Track Name: Unholy Moon
this army of earthquakes
is ready for battle
the people of earth wait for a war
that won’t even matter

I’ll save you the heartache and tell you a lie
I’ll keep you warm with friendly fire
a sentence is handed down and now
It’s coming down to the wire

the holy one is one the run
unholy moon is on the dune

the aftershocks are frightening
we lay torn and tattered
messiahs they come and prophets they go
illusions are shattered

we have to find a way to keep you alive
clean your wounds then show you the light
bandages soaked, come undone
blood kissed lips say goodbye

there will be no one to save you
Track Name: Sirens
underneath the ship
mermaids float on by
they only look at me
with their cold black eyes

the mermaids float on by

captain’s on the bridge
sirens sing on high
they don’t call to him
their silence is divine

the mermaids swim on by

high above the ship
I hear everything
I need to get a grip
is this dream alive

the sirens scream tonight

sirens sing tonight
mermaids swim on by
sirens sing to me in silence
