  • Stay Posi or Cry Trying 7"
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Split 7" on black vinyl. Nothing special. You don't want to buy this. It sounds just as bad as the digital version. Maybe even worse. Who are we to know?

So, it's not really news that we're no longer a thing. That happened a while ago. And I'm speaking for both bands right now - Captain Spark(l)y and Come With Me (If You Want To Live). If this is news to you, well - please rejoice in knowing that we are no longer things. Mainly, we realized we make terrible music and we're terrible people. Sorry it took us this long to realize what you knew from the start.

Captain Sparky fizzled out after one too many whiskey infused side project cooking shows and was unable to be revived.

Come With Me (If You Want To Live) got dropped by our label in Japan and shortly after that, all of our money ran dry. We also lost our local sponsorship deal with a certain New Brunswick based 6% alcohol drink. Which is fine. We didn't deserve what we had.

Anyways, because way too many of you have treated us so kindly, we figured we would put out a final release. Thank you for everything you ever did for us.

Sorry we tried to ruin your life. And failed.

Track Name: Ode To The Punk House
drove from the city to find my last home
hung from a tree by a city rope
you called my cell phone from a dirt road
you told me come back
i never told you though

we built a house and let everyone in
for better or worse i won't forget our skin
you build it, you break it
it takes time to make it

and now i see you've become the concrete
slowly crumbling under my timid feet
you cast sail, arose from the grave
you live a life, a life that i crave

so i'll burry it in a song
i know you'll never sing
you we're the best friends
even if i wasn't anything

and i am not angry, i just wish this didn't have to end, so i hope that my letters do not come off with contempt, and for every tear soaked shoulder and every heart to heart that we had, for every kept promise that we never had to regret, i know that if you promise too, i will never forget

and i won't forget our first train rides
and i won't forget all our restless nights
yea i won't forget sleeping in your van
i know it's it's stupid but you were the best friends anyone could ever have

you build it, you break it
it takes time to make it

you build it, they'll break it
it takes time to make it
Track Name: Come With Me (If You Want To Live) - I Know That Mom
i rode my bike at 3am
crushed the overpass cement
just to find you

this was my home

they told me things i'd never repeat

i wanted what they never started, i wanted to be a part of it
