Editorial Reviews

Product Description

SafetySuit is an extraordinarily talented, musically confident young band from Nashville that inspires. Their songs capture the grandeur and depth of U2, with an imaginative pop sensibility at its core and a dizzying wall of guitars as its backdrop. Life Left to Go, is unabashedly catchy. It feels like that album that'll live in your car stereo for months on end. But the title, like the band's name, has its own story. 'It's named after our last song on the record, which is our least commercial song ever,' admits Brown. 'It chronicles the thoughts of someone who wants to end their life. Then it presents the counter of that, the person begging them to stay. It's a song to let people know that, no matter what, somebody notices them, that someone cares.'

About the Artist

Anything--and everything--about SAFETYSUIT can be summed up by the band's name. "I think the key word is `safety,'" explains singer/guitarist Doug Brown. "The four of us in the band have been friends forever. We feel comfortable around each other. We're in a safe environment...and that makes us feel free to be who we are. And, if we can inspire that moment or that feeling in our fans, we've succeeded." Which begins the story of SAFETYSUIT, an extraordinarily talented, musically confident young band that does, in fact, inspire. Their songs capture the grandeur and depth of U2, with an imaginative pop sensibility at its core and a dizzying wall of guitars as its backdrop. "It's not rocket science," says Brown. "Quintessential good melody and good lyrics, that's what makes a song." Oddly, the band's influences share very little with the group's final sound. "Hey, I like Rob Thomas - the way he twists a melody has always caught my ear. I grew up on the Allman Brothers and the Beatles. I like a lot of modern rock. And the Eagles - you won't hear that in our music, but there's a band that really showed me what a group of people can accomplish musically." When Brown speaks, it's with assurance, as if he knows what he's doing and where he's going. It's a feeling that began in, of all places, Tulsa. Here, before there was a SAFETYSUIT, there was Crew. And this early incarnation of the group was, indeed, friends. Their journey started the moment Doug, drummer Tate Cunningham and bassist Jeremy Henshaw (along with two other guys; guitarist Dave Garofolo joined a little later) entered a local Battle of the Bands contest at the last minute...and won. It continued throughout the next year, as Crew became a local phenomenon, drawing up to1000 people per night on the local circuit. But to grow as a band, the band needed a new direction. "We wanted to move, and move to one of the three major music hubs," remembers Brown. The group wanted space to think, to grow and, most importantly, to focus. With that in mind, the usual rock music meccas (Los Angeles and New York) gave way to Nashville. Despite the new locale, the lack of a local fanbase, no deal and no manager, the group assembled in Tennessee and obsessively began to rehearse. After a chance meeting, they recorded an EP with Greg Archilla (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul, Buckcherry) in the summer of 2005. "When we were done with that, we felt we were as ready to play as ever," says Brown.

So the gigs began - at nice places, dives, theaters, clubs, wherever, often 2-3 times a week. And, as expected by the band, the fanbase grew. Labels started sniffing around. And the group discovered what would become its second home, a local haunt called 12th and Porter, where the group began a residency. "Actually, the best show we ever did was at 12th and Porter, and it was the night Universal showed up," says Brown. "Everyone brought everyone that night. Twenty minutes before the show, somebody came into the green room and announced there was a line around the block. All I remember is ...I walked out on stage that night, the lights went up, I saw the crowd...and the whole thing was a blur afterwards. I was in a zone the entire time. When the last note of the last song hit, I sort of woke up. It was ...amazing." With a Universal deal in hand, the band met with a number of big-name producers, before ultimately deciding to stick with Archilla ("We're stubborn," says Brown. "We like Greg. He doesn't mess around, he tells it like it is...and he plays golf. So that's awesome.") The final result, Life Left to Go, is unabashedly catchy. It feels like that album that'll live in your car stereo for months on end. But the title, like the band's name, has its own story. "It's named after our last song on the record, which is our least commercial song ever," admits Brown. "It chronicles the thoughts of someone who wants to end their life. Then it presents the counter of that, the person begging them to stay. It's a song to let people know that, no matter what, somebody notices them, that someone cares. "That song is a big deal for us," Brown continues, then pauses. "I don't want to wave any sort of flag, but the focus on music is always so ego-centric. We wanted to flip that. I wanted this to be a song about the artist giving for a change." It's a feeling you'll hopefully discover when SAFETYSUIT heads out of Nashville this spring and hits the road. As Brown promises, anyone who comes to their show should feel better afterwards than before they came in. As is with their music, it's an inspiring thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain old fantastic music! October 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I walked into a music store at the mall the other day, and this CD started playing, I was so enthralled by the music, that I shopped straight through the first 5 songs, and all I left with, was this CD. It's easily the best one that I have bought in a very long time. Every song is great, I have very few CDs that I can listen to beginning to end, over and over...and this is definitely one of them. I had never heard of Safetysuit before that day, and walked out 20 minutes later a huge fan! The songs are all beautifully written, and very emotional, everything that I look for in great music! I'm telling everyone I know about this CD, and I'm sure they will be fans also...how could you not be?

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! August 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am AMAZED at the sound of this band. I have never been as swept up in a band the first time I heard them. They manage to be sweet, tough, and hard hitting all at the same time they are making your heart swell. The song Annie should be played for every high school girl who enjoys books more than pom poms, and every mom who thinks she isn't as pretty after she has her kids. It truly reminds us that beauty is so much more than make up and designer clothes. I recomend EVERY ONE buy this album...NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be skipping a single song on this album. July 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is easily the best new band with the best album released this year, a completely incredible piece of music. From the beginning, Life Left to Go grabs you as an album you won't be able to stop listening to. Some of the best songs on the album are Apology, a song with a great rhythm and percussion, and Annie, which demonstrates the vocal talents of the band. SafetySuit is an up-and-coming powerhouse in the music industry, they will be huge sometime in the next five years. Already touring with the likes of Seether, expect to see these guys headlining soon. Buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars After a few listens, i love it! July 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I initially bought this album because of the good reviews on amazon. When i first listened to it, i thought it was nice but not particularly great in the way i expected it to be. But after i listened to it once again and the emotions and beauty in the songs started to come out. So i listened to it once more, and it was EVEN BETTER.

Now i listen to the album at least once a day. The music is just beautiful, i mean, Wow! These guys can really sing their hearts out. In every song, you can feel the emotions, the heartbreak, the love, and every other feeling that has gone into it. The lyrics aren't shallow or juvenile or vulgar like alot of rock bands, it's really about the deep feelings, happiness, and sometimes pain that we feel.

It's about being human, not about partying or screwing girls or anything like that. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who likes rock. My favorite songs are "Stay", a ballad about, well, making someone stay, and "Annie", a song about a girl thats beautiful on the inside more than the outside, and "Life Left To Go", a song about someone trying to convince a person who wants to suicide that there's still a worthwhile life left to live, "Gone Away", about the contemplative thoughts of someone left behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW... March 31, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I am so impressed with this album. I have such an eclectic taste in music that I sometimes neglect to seek out new music and I am SO glad that I stumbled across this band. Every song on this cd is emotionally stirring and their voices and instrumentals are gorgeous. A true work of art in our modern age. I could not be happier with this cd. :o)

This CD is awesome. I love their music and the lyrics are sad but powerful, and people can relate to most of the songs. Safetysuit reminds me of Switchfoot, and just as good. I sure hope you enjoy this CD as much as I have. It is definitely worth buying!!
