    Mansbridge is a punk band from Montreal, Canada. But not just any other punk band. You may recognize them from their time in Farler's Fury. After a long hiatus with Farler's Fury, Mansbridge hit us over the head with their new self-titled EP. There is no question about their sense of urgency to get back on the road and start where they left off.

    "Mansbridge’s sound is that of a mid-90s pop-punk band that grew up and decided to play serious music. Society sucks. People suck, and nothing is certain.

    Mansbridge knows this, and this idea comes out in their lyrics. “Is the perspective of harm making you restless?” Yes, Mansbridge, and there is no escape. This sentiment of constant torture and the mind’s inability to cope is echoed throughout the course of their four-song E.P." - The Arthur, The Peterborough and Trent University Independent Press

lyrics

CHEST PAINS

Your body is waiting for a tragedy
Yet your will is urging you to go
There is a million different ways you can make an escape
As you watch mortality unfold

You chose to never pay attention or learn from the signs
When you embrace this fragile balance, solace you find
Little time to rejoice when you have to pay the price
Forgot about the interest rate on your life

Seeking shelter for this yearning heart
Yields only torture for the mind
Symptoms of a weaning body
Telling you of when you went so high

A meticulously executed ritual
There’s no neglect in all things meaningful
In every single detail you anticipate transition
You might solemnly comply with tradition

But you’ll only go as far as the end of your chain
The burden of the past, a reminder you went blind
This pain in your chest like a vicious remnant
The ghost of a role in a play left behind

The variables of this equation may change
But you can constantly rely on chest pains to shut you down

Seeking shelter for this yearning heart
Yields only torture for the mind
Symptoms of a weaning body
Telling you of when you went so high

When everything has been said and all has been done
Can we honestly believe and proclaim that we’ve won?
It never was a competition, it’s a war against ourselves
And we have to reach a cease-fire before we’re in hell.

Seeking shelter for this yearning heart
Yields only torture for the mind
Symptoms of a weaning body
Telling you of when you went so high
