> number one gun – new song “million”

There was news that Number One Gun was no more and a new band Surrogate with a new sound would take it’s place.

But it looks like Surrogate stoked the fires that were Number One Gun and they will be releasing a new album in 2008.
Number One Gun says:

* The First New Song Online!
Check out the first new song from our new album “The North Pole Project” in our Purevolume Player! The album doesn’t hit stores until January 15, 2008 but listen to the new song “Million” now

august playlist – songs by flee the seen, far-less, falling up , the panic division, surrogate, northern, paper route, parker theory & evoka

here are some songs to add to your playlist*

all songs available on the band’s purevolume page


  • 300 Voices at Liberty Hall > flee the seen / doubt become the addiction — this is one of those songs you hear and say “lets go see them in concert” and then find out that the rest of the album is screamo…!!!

  • keep keep > far-less / a toast to bad taste — this band always flew under the radar for me, but this song sounds like it’s ready to be a hit

  • Hotel Aquarium > falling up / capitva —who can forget the new album is out Oct 2

  • sing you to sleep > paper route / ep —I am going to see them live this weekend with sleeping at last,…can’t wait

  • death penalty > surrogate / love is for the rich — a nice change of pace for a tooth and nail band

  • dauphine > evoka / when the day comes —unsigned but not for long
