  • FT90 - My Way My Love / The Poison Arrows - Split Single - out August 11, 2017!!!

    BUY / LISTEN

    The split single with Tokyo’s My Way My Love and Chicago’s The Poison Arrows titled by its catalogue number ‘FT90’ is out Friday August 11, 2017 on File 13 Records 

    The Poison Arrows and My Way My Love have been label-mates for many years now.  As the two most active bands on the label, they have become very close friends, and have always wanted to work together.  When My Way My Love was releasing their album ‘she sky my heart with blue’ and The Poison Arrows was releasing our new album ‘No Known Note’ around the same time, it was a perfect chance to collaborate. 

    Both of the songs are a great introduction to each band.  MWML’s “Honey” is definitely one of their best, as complex, frantic, and intense as it is melodic.   You can read the full lyrics to “Honey” below, and singer and guitarist Yukio Murata explained the lyrics meaning behind Honey:

    “Honey” is (a) story when I looked up at the sky...a state of sadness, grief, and mourning after the loss of a loved one.This is " Love Song " for me, for I loved one.”

    The Poison Arrows track “Why We Study History” was recorded at the same time as their newest album ‘No Known Note,’ and is the most politically-minded of the recent tracks as singer and guitarist Justin Sinkovich explains:

    “The latest social and political climate is baffling to me, it is as if we are devolving.  We should be analyzing the mistakes of the past to learn from our mistakes and move forward as humans. If only those caught up in their backwards agendas would study history… we should have moved past these petty conflicts years ago.” 


    Honey

    How far is your heaven
    When it comes when it goes
    Is it a long way?

    How high is your sky is…
    I’m fallin’… how far is??

     Your smile still remains
    Is where I hung tears
    Stars burn so bright tonight
    Where you’ve gone to

    You got me floating low
    You got me flying high
    Your smile still remains
    Is where I hung tears
    Stars burn so bright tonight
    Where you’ve gone to…
    Your shadow still remains

    Why We Study History

    Trace the time we’ve isolated
    Trace the trash we’ve complicated
    Trash the time we’ve tried to save us again

    Cross the border cross the line
    Cross the basis for no time
    Cross the stasis of not if but when

    That’s the way we stay defeated
    That’s the way we’ve lie and cheated
    That’s the reason we seem so cross again

    Pass the test to bury me
    Forget the past to stop the bleeding
    Erase the past to set you free again

    Pass the test to bury me
    Forget the past to stop the bleeding
    That’s the reason we study history

    Errands run and soon distorted
    Errant exports of the soon reported
    Lazy accounts of debates on if we have won

    Close the past on re-entry burn
    Close to last and negative return
    Now let’s cash that check and that project’s done

    That’s the way we’ve loved and hated
    They way we stay negated
    That’s the way we finally bit our tongue
