about

Gold and Shadows is the Road Miles' first LP. Α live recording, captured on tape, enriched by the tape's distinctive quality: a mellow, fuzzy presence.

A psychedelic haze runs through the dark, blues-rock patterns that unfold throughout the album weaving together mesmerizing rhythms and melodic riffs. Much like a film noir, the pasionate vocals break through the mystifying atmosphere to expel our demons and purify our souls.

about

The Road Miles Athens, Greece

The Road Miles are a southern gothic band based in Athens, GR. Their fuzzy sound combines rock’n’roll energy with dark aesthetic under the influence of psychedelic blues.

They drag their guitars through reverb sounds and fuzz pedals while filtering the vocals with low-fi microphones, telling stories from a world full of heat, dust and red suns reflected on the steel hood of a deserted sedan.

Track Name: Demons
The first time he thought «I’ll face it all with a smile like no one cares»
The next time he thought «I’ll bite everyone’s neck the hardest way»

Well, he lost himself in a minute, a minute away from madness
The madness that rules the world
However, he fought with demons and cursed away their hate
Sought for love in truthful eyes and freedom in return

And now he collects those memories
Speaks for them in books and songs
But still he’s scared that some cold day
The demons might return

Cast these demons from our minds, release our bodies from this tyranny, cast these demons from our memories and deliver us from sin. Fire walk with me.
Track Name: Crossroads
He is calling my name
He is setting the game
For his kingdom of ruins
Lay waste, lay waste

He is pulling my leash
As he’s grinding his teeth
Road worn suit, wicked smile
Papa stay by my side

He is calling my name
In the crossroads of faith
Through his kingdom of ruins
Lay waste, lay waste
Track Name: Story's over
Believe her when she says that little story’s over
Believe her when she says it’s done
Don’t leave her when she says take a risk and try it sober
Don’t leave her when she drinks and runs

Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction

Believe her when she says that little story’s over
Believe her when she says it’s done
Don’t leave her when she says take a risk and try it sober
Don’t leave her when she drinks and runs

Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction
Your own self destruction
Imprisoned to attraction
Imprisoned to attraction
Imprisoned to attraction
Imprisoned to attraction

Your own self destruction.
Track Name: Hey Ma
Hey ma, don’t fear for me now
Hey ma, don’t speak for me now
Hey ma, don’t want you to see
What I’ve become believing this way

Hey ma, you’re here for me now
Hey mama, you’re bailing me out
Hey ma, you think it is alright
But mama, it’s never okay

Hey ma, go pick me that gun
Hey mama, don’t step on this man
Hey ma, I’ve done this before
Just hold my hand tight, we’ll step to the light
Track Name: William Blake
I lost control this spring my friend
I crawl across the road, my bed
Prepare to give in to the birds
That pride themselves for their white feathers

A caution sign is all I see
I hear the trumpets scream for me
The souls surround the empty farm
Seems it is time I finally stood up

And as I stand my bones creak
I lay my hands, offer my skin
They cover it with gold and shadows
I must confess, I know what follows
