    String Fiction's "Chapter Six" EP, recorded in full at String Fiction's own studio in Ravensdale, NSW and mastered at Clarity Studios in Newcastle. Artwork concept by String Fiction, photography by David Murramai.

    The most "Frequently Asked Question" we get is "why Chapter Six? Where are instalments one through five?" The truth is, whilst this is our first physical release under the name String Fiction, we as a band have been on a solid journey of songwriting, performance, self development, and general exposure to life and all it's rapids and turbulence, and we feel like we have put a lot of distance between us and our "Part One."

    This record contains four tracks which we consider quintessential to crossexamining our sound. Time Travellers has it all in the title, and is a personal story of all the staple romantic influences (love, loss, time travel, nuclear fission, the end of the world, and cafes).
    Cerebral Dream is a story told through music alone, and devoid of vocal interruption.
    The Cycle talks of secular patterns, life addictions, relationship degradation, and general implosion.
    Finally, "Everybody Sings" closes out the record with a semi-fictitious story of lust, arson, attempted murder, and resolute relationship absolution. We swear it's actually a really happy, upbeat song!

    Come on the journey with us, in physical or digital format!

Track Name: Time Travellers
It's the everything I wanted
Encased in Autumn months
Nostalgia by the garden swings
of our street cafe in France

Where we'd run from all that present
And hide eons past
Singing la da da da da da
Our time will always last,
It'll last.....


I'd write a book of past embraces
spilt in spirits on the page
Borrowed from your past and mine
and salt what ache remains

To hell with all that symmetry
The devil's in our plans
As line by line it all runs free
Till with majesty we stand...

Take my hand
Track Name: The Cycle
It’s gonna save you
Pretty girl
It’s gonna take and break and wake up
your whole world

So don’t don’t be afraid
to lose
So don’t don’t be afraid
to choose
Don’t pray drink or cry
Just try and realise
So don’t don’t be afraid
to lose

It’s gonna save you
Pretty girl
It’s gonna shake and make and fake
your whole world

So don’t don’t be afraid
to lose
So don’t don’t be afraid
to choose
Don’t pray drink or cry
Just try and realise
So don’t don’t be afraid
to lose

Don’t fight don’t fly just
Come alive
This is the end of
Modern youth
Track Name: Everybody Sings
You were a misty eyed and
forlorn thing
naivety incarnate, all wisdom drawn
to spare change in the wind

You woke me with smoke
From a dream in which I had drowned
You’d set fire to the house with a letter
telling me
You’d skipped town

We're going home

You packed yourself a bag
Full of memories of solid ground
As the smoke alarms they sang, they sang..
Burn this fucker down

All the blacked out windows and
smashed up picture frames
Made it easy to hit the road and finally
Finally fly again

We're going home

You're a vision in my headlights
Reminds me of when it was easy to hurt
Before the cancer of livelihood, weighed us..
Weighed us down

As I run your car off the road you spin
Into the fate you found
The tyres oh, the tyres they sing...
Burn this fucker down

We're going home

As I walk across, the desert road
To your burning wreck
The smile in your eyes of
Sex, death and lies
Brings back things, I'll not forget

As I take your hand and carry you free
We survey the haze
We see a town in our gaze, and
one thought comes ablaze...
Burn this fucker down.

We're going home
