about

Readership Hostile Los Angeles, California

Readership Hostile is a cathartic collision of deathrock, goth, early punk and contemporary psych propelled by an effervescent, force-of-nature frontwoman.

Darkly ornate yet visceral, the band ambushed its native Los Angeles with a string of startling performances in 2013, before bottling its organic on-stage aura into a brutally beautiful debut EP.

Track Name: Shadows of Pure Delight
Give me pleasure
Give me pain
Give me reason
To feel again
Shake me, shake me
'til life is good
Shake me, shake me
'til I'm understood

Give me magic
Give me Jesus
Give me miracles
To believe in
Shake me, shake me
'til life is good
Shake me, shake me
'til I'm understood

I walk the shadow of pure delight
Last will for victory will reign tonight
tonight

Give me sorrow
Give me bliss
Give me meaning
Behind the kiss
Shake me, shake me
til life is good
Shake me, shake me
til I'm understood

Give me voice
Give me reason
Give me hope
In projected freedom
Shake me, shake me
'til life is good
Shake me, shake me
'til I'm understood
Track Name: Snowflake on My Tongue
These winter lights
Delight my eyes
oh oh

Sweet Christmas Sugar
Tastes like home
Sweet Christmas Sugar
Snowflake on my tongue

Peppermint kiss
From Mother's lips
oh oh
Behold the brightest star
She glows, she glows
oh oh

Sweet Christmas Sugar
Tastes like home
Sweet Sugar Christmas
Snowflake on my tongue

Do you remember when
Not long ago
Lives a bride in heaven
She grew the whitest snow
Behold the angels sing
Good will to all men's machines
Rejoice lets go! Rejoice let's go!

These winter lights
Delight my eyes
oh oh
Behold the brightest star
She glows, she glows
oh oh

Sweet Christmas Sugar
Tastes like home
Sweet Sugar Christmas
Snowflake on my tongue
Track Name: Ghost Lived Fire
Everyday, get's colder
When you're dark.
I feel the tension,
no movement in your smile.

You draw down the window shades
Lock me out of every door
My heart will never say your name
It's silent to my grave

There you stand
Twisted inside the sky
Sweet earth below us
Hid the devil in your eyes

You draw down the window shades
Lock me out of every door
My heart will never say your name
It's silent to my grave

Where were you
When angels fell over me
I've broken free-alive
In this ghost lived fire

You draw down the window shades
Lock me out of every door
My heart will never say your name
It's silent to my grave

And when I see you all alone
You've bought a distance
inside your mind
Why do you act like
you're all holy
I'm going to watch you
Burn

Everyday gets colder
When you're dark
I feel the tension,
no movement in your smile

You draw down the window shades
Lock me out of every door
My heart will never say your name
It's silent to my grave
Track Name: Failing Fools
Denial
Lives in a corporate space
Somewhere between the earth and atmosphere
When I call your name
Why don't you respond?
Number to a face
You've disappeared

Look how we've failed
Look how we've sold our lives
Foolishly wasting time away

Holes punched in cards
blood sweat and pain
stealing time to
prey upon your soul
A forgotten kiss
A dream is missed
Drowning through a sea
of hopeless thoughts

Look how we've failed
Look how we've sold our lives
Foolishly wasting time away

forever
forever
forever
hell no
hell no
hell no
Track Name: Damaged Parts
Here I stand in liberation
Bring lightness from the dark
Shots of tranquility
When I spread my legs apart
I'll screw you domination
I'll screw you domination
I'll screw you domination
I'll tear your world apart

You can't live
By the lies that your told
You have to practice loud and practice to be bold

You force intimidation
Slut shaming sinful art
Suppressed defiant needs
Stole my body, soul and heart
I'll screw you domination
I'll screw you domination
I'll screw you domination
I'll tear your world apart

You can't live
By the lies that your told
You have to practice loud and practice to be bold
You can't live a lie
And practice what you preach
It's time to make a change
It's not far out of reach

You can't mend your mortality
When your morality's the damaged part

Misuse of education
They'll spin a mindful tale
Ignorant proclamations
My sex will burn in hell
We'll screw you domination
We'll screw you domination
We'll screw you domination
Let's tear this world apart
You can't live
By the lies that your told
You have to practice loud and practice to be bold
You can't live a lie
And practice what you preach
It's time to make a change
It's not far out of reach
Track Name: Tainted Pale
Tainted pale
Staring out my window pane
Watching the world around me
Fall apart

Dim the lights
Haunted widow hold your scream
Hold your breath, don't try to speak
Or we will die

They've got us wrapped around their desparate measures
With our blood stains on the walls

Here I stand
Dressed up for my morbid dream
Holy saints bless the room
for you and I

Winter's kiss
Tipped hat for the lost brigade
Burning wishes, guilty games
Last goodbye

They've got us wrapped around their desparate measures
With our blood stains on the walls

Do you remember?
These nights we lived in torture?

She calls
She calms me down to sleep
We're gonna die!

Tainted pale
Staring out my window pane
Watching the world around me
Fall apart

Dim the lights
Haunted widow hold your scream
Hold your breath, don't try to speak
Or we will die

They've got us wrapped around their desparate measures
With our blood stains on the walls
