about

The third album by Toronto-based progressive rock band, Bolus. 13 tracks feature a tasteful blend of dynamic composition and catchy melody.

Being the first album written after the addition of bassist Daniel Avner, a new collaboration experience has allowed for a progression into exciting sonic territory. In May 2012, we had spent a week at the Karch family cottage on Georgian Bay, with the single goal of writing fresh material for the new album. In a drastic change of scenery, with our creative juices flowing, we spent the week jamming and writing non-stop, and eventually came back home to Toronto with 13 tracks that we couldn’t wait to share with our fans and friends around the world!

Beautiful geometric artwork by Andy Kolenberg wonderfully complements our new musical compositions, and takes a refreshing turn from the art of previous Bolus album covers. Additionally, our own Mat Keselman has once again put his mixing talent to work with this release.

Track Name: Forward Facing
Hold your horses!
Where did you find your sources?
When did you loosen the grip on the throat of your internal forces?

Carving cravings
Packing them in bullet casings
Vegetarian renaissance man but you're still forward facing

I would rather we meet in a public place
I can picture the look in your eyes
As he leans in to wipe tears off from her face
He can see that she's still wearing her disguise
You keep trying

Oh, you've always wanted more
Better than before
No, you can't replace your core
Your internal war

Every morning
New medication suppresses old yearnings
Mighty antennas will bring us together without the sun burning

Home made rivers
Avoiding the axe but you're running with scissors
Day light savings will help you transition from summer to winter

Such articulate tone every time he speaks
Quite a gentleman all would agree
While inside all that count are lips and cheeks
Cut the crap! You're just a beast with a degree

Oh, you've always wanted more
Better than before
No, you can't replace your core
Your internal war

Our internal war
Track Name: Calibrate
Calibrating heart and mind, seeking out the order, feeding, breathing
Intuition intertwined, feeling for a border, reconvening
Information open wide, growing, getting older, tales repeating
Settle down and pick a side, safely in a corner, time receding

I know you've done it all before
There's nothing new for me in store
Ideas tangled in your head
Some things are better left unsaid

Standing in one place
May as well be moving back
Standing in one place
Brings out everything you lack
It's time to walk

Separating yours from mine, natural disorder, trial completing
Celibate till you found wine, bridges burning colder, time is bleeding

Emancipation growing strong
So who will tell you right from wrong?
There is no reason to be scared
You know that simple needs are shared

Standing in one place
May as well be moving back
Standing in one place
Brings out everything you lack
It's time to walk
Track Name: The Study of Madness
I believe that if I read about it all
I can solve the mystery keeping me here
All there is to know concealed behind these walls
No common ground with those who keep me near

Hearing echoes of the past
I know I'm not the only seeking soul
If their stories all ring true
The lessons hidden there will guide me through

Scan the pages, leave no stone unturned
Find the secrets of your mind
Under dimming lights your words reveal
Similarities with you and I

Will this page help me escape
This chamber getting colder by the night?
And as the years turn into life
The path to leave is almost out of sight

Am I so mad to think this way?
That they relate to me?
Am I so wrong to think and say
Their knowledge is the key?

You may think about my words
You may find the truth will hurt
But to bring about this change you call
Break your final fall

Finding reason to improve ourselves
Tripping over each mistake
Your solution has so much to tell
Show me all the tactics I can take

As the madness grows inside
I know the information has no end
With an option I must now decide
To ignore the knowledge on which I depend

Am I so mad to think this way?
That they knew how to see?
Am I so wrong to think and say
It's not insanity?

You may think about my words
You may find the truth will hurt
But to bring about this change you call
Break your final fall

With this logic weathering
I can hear their whispering

You may think about my words
You may find the truth will hurt
But to bring about this change you call
Break your final fall
Track Name: Smoke at the Mirror
So you went and lied to them all
But you forgot I built this place strong and tall
Who will stand by your side?
Who will help you hide?

Rev your engine in neutral
Makes some noise while they look away
What's the worst that can happen
If they found out today?

Blow some smoke at the mirror
Trample anyone in your way
When they learn of your secrets
Will they ask you to stay?

So you let your pride take control
Now you're surprised I'm not there to console
Who even cares anymore?
Who, but you, keeps score?

Blow some smoke at the mirror
Trample anyone in your way
When they learn of your secrets
Will they ask you to stay?
Track Name: Wake Cycle
A lifetime left behind us had put forth all the effort
To accomplishments that make so little sense

In a strange reality dance with insanity
To absent consequence, at no expense

Something peculiar, but unfamiliar
Back in reality, what could I be forgetting?

I wish I knew
What would have happened next?
Out of the blue
You dragged me from my sleep
Just take me back
The dream is incomplete

Caught off guard, taken back into a clearer world
And I can't help thinking something here is wrong

Memory starts to fade away, are you who you think you are?
Is everything we've worked for all but gone?

Something peculiar, but unfamiliar
Back in reality, what could I be forgetting?

I wish I knew
What would have happened next?
Out of the blue
You dragged me from my sleep
Just take me back
The dream is incomplete

In that life we carry on, running faster now to victory
With the goal so clear in sight, all conclusion lost to mystery

I wish I knew
What would have happened next?
Out of the blue
You dragged me from my sleep
Into a trap
So easy to forget
Just take me back
The dream is incomplete
Track Name: Revise
Seeming stranger than before
Below and wanting more
Dragged in an awkward situation

Honour is expected
Worn out and neglected
No need to say another word

Never even asked
Darker than the past
Liquid so cold
Underneath I hold

Guarded generation
New shell from rejection
Trying to find a better way

With my blurry eyes
Forced to compromise
This could be worse
I am not the first

Never even asked
Darker than the past
Liquid so cold
Underneath I hold

Some things are just meant to be
Tell me what happens now
Such a long long time...
Move on...
Track Name: Spurs
Find me a drink or seven in this deadly heat
Who will help me find you along these ruined streets?
How many moons have passed me since I first took aim?
Soaring through the constellations to pin point "What's-her-name"

I feel you getting warmer now, just hope its not too late

I found the bounty
Fascinated by your face
I'm moving twice as fast now
Just you wait
I'm chasing you!

The bastard who's behind your capture, a master of his trade
Fled this city undetected, I swear I'll make him pay!
And to think you'd be the victim of this criminal ordeal...
Maybe if it's my lucky day, we'll cash out and not get killed

I know you're waiting there for me with coin and that pretty smile

I read the bounty
Realized the final score
Now only two things matter anymore

I found the bounty
Fascinated by your face
I'm moving twice as fast now
Just you wait
I'm chasing you!
Track Name: Severed Ties
Light! Dead End
Lock that which I'm yet to own
Stale! Second hand
Incandescent sparks ignite the road

Facing barrels we transform
Feel the ground around erode
Slaves of Pharaoh we perform
Maybe tomorrow our names will be known

Glass! Give way
Embers eat away my past
Clear! Mastermind
Broken men will follow in my path

Facing barrels we transform
Feel the ground around erode
Slaves of Pharaoh we perform
Maybe tomorrow our names will be known

Crossing a different line
And following a new design
Failing to compromise
A fascination with severed ties

Facing barrels we transform
Feel the ground around erode
Slaves of Pharaoh we perform
Maybe tomorrow our names will be known
Track Name: Pacific Time
I get two mornings today, I found a new place to stay
A place where no one has heard of me
They strip away all my rights in a city made of lights
And mountains rolling into the sea

Come, dreamers, get on your knees!
We trust you with our house keys
As long as you touch nothing
And keep the place clean

Come children, give us your time!
Knowledge and brute force combined
With hard work, money grows on trees
But we give no guarantees

I've fallen in a trap today
I could leave, but something's telling me I should stay

I came along for the ride, but it's so lovely outside
The ocean calling me down to play
The weeks are taking their toll, this wasn't anyone's goal
I think I'll look for another way

I've fallen in a trap today
I could leave, but nothing's telling me I should stay
Track Name: Downtown Core
Just another night in the city I know
Seeking difference in my path
One more possible love from another
Is it hidden with you?

Singing strange goodbyes on Queen West
Point in opposite directions
With your name on the tip of my tongue
I can't leave you behind

Where did you go? Are you alone?
Too dark to see you split from me
I'll search for you till' night is through
Survey the streets , my city sleeps

If I hadn't missed the chance to bridge an electronic gap
I could hear your voice so clear and follow it back home

See glowing space, notice your face
In Dundas Square, could you be there?
No way to tell how we dispel
Down underground, descending sound

If I hadn't missed the chance to stumble on somebody else
Maybe I'd be on my way with my heart in one piece

Uncertainty towards your view, is this familiar to you?
Acting on assumption I continue anxiously

Not just any night in the city I know
Not since our intersecting path
Moving closer now to love from another
Will it bring me to you?

We can find each other once again
If we take time to explore
Like hide and seek with dire consequence
In this dark downtown core

Has anybody taken notice of this energy
To bring such distant entities together easily?
In that silent moment we could only use our eyes
The effect was irreversible, I felt it energize

Rush to rapid transit, not quite a rocket now
But finally I can see the towers rise above the ground
What's this feeling in my bones? You're coming by this way!
Is down, on Front, our meeting place? Can I wait here and stay?

Feel the pulse intensify
Getting close, magnify
Is it your silhouette?
Can you not spot me yet?

End another night in the city I know
We rejoin on our path
I collapse into love from another
It's what lead me to you

We have found each other once again
Not sure what we're looking for
Now avoiding a solo escape
From this dark downtown core

As we gaze upon this great frozen lake
Hand in hand one more time
We both know while the night's nearly over
Our new story's begun
Track Name: Silence and Sound
It always starts with a question
A human need and confession
Every step is a progression
Obsession turned indiscretion

Where's the magic I look for?
Tempted to seek and explore

Indecision, let me know
Broken with no place to go
Perhaps plateau attracts plateau
Have we reached an all time low?

Past events, useless to me
A universal mystery

I turn the blank page around
Tune into silence and sound
Go where beauty surrounds
No one will bring me down

My own flesh pulling tricks
Magnetic forces gaps and strips
Ego-driven writing scripts
Mesmerizing winding hips

I can't separate a class
Wishing I can make it last

I turn the blank page around
Tune into silence and sound
Go where beauty surrounds
No one will bring me down
