about

"Just Ignite" is the debut EP from Cliffhanger. Hailing from Chicago's western suburbs, Cliffhanger captures the essence of older pop punk along with the melodic energy of the genres modern sound. With four dedicated members, Cliffhanger has a strong influence of both pop and punk. Mike Centracco and Mike Licari are heavily influenced in pop punk and have been since the mid-1990s. Jordan Benker and Trevor Utz are very affluent in the pop music scene. Together, all these influences are brought together to create a familiar, but different sound.

After 5 months of playing together, Cliffhanger worked with Michael Govaere (ex-Every Avenue) at Downbeat Studio in Chicago to record “Just Ignite.” After recording at Downbeat Studio, Cliffhanger worked with Alan Douches (West West Side Music - A Day to Remember, Fall Out Boy, The Wonder Years) to master "Just Ignite."

"Just Ignite" may only contain 3 tracks, but it covers so much. "Just Ignite" is an accurate metaphor for working up the courage to begin something new with passion and excitement. The title also reflects the band's emersion into the scene with force. "Just Ignite" covers topics from the desire to break away from the routine life to the remembering the ones we have lost. There is a certain strength that comes from the music to overcome obstacles. The lyrics relate to the overlooked and under appreciated.

With "Just Ignite" being the debut release for this Midwestern band, it paves the path for growth and anticipation. Without a doubt, Cliffhanger will leave you waiting eagerly for the next release.

Track Name: City Skyline
The city lights are calling me in
A brand new place for me to begin
And all this wasted time
All these wasted dimes
On wishing wells caused that's all we'll ever need

And I won't sick back so silently
I'll look forward to this eagerly

Let's burn this place to the ground
I feel it more than ever
Somethings contagious in the crowd
I've got a rising feeling of jealous
that's killing me so
Let's burn this place to the ground
Until we all fall

So put your hands up in the air
I wanna be with you right here, right now
We're taking over
We came tonight to win you over
So listen up! Listen up!
Let's get away from here
The skylines coming near
So close your eyes and stand by my side tonight

And I won't sick back so silently
I'll look forward to this eagerly

Let's burn this place to the ground
I feel it more than ever
Somethings contagious in the crowd
I've got a rising feeling of jealous
that's killing me so
Let's burn this place to the ground
Until we all fall

Let's burn this place to the ground
I feel it more than ever
Somethings contagious in the crowd
I've got a rising feeling of jealous
that's killing me so
Let's burn this place to the ground
And then we all fall down
Track Name: They Used to Call Me "Anal Girl"
We shot our words like guns
The bullets pierced our lungs
Wanting to set aside
All the bullshit and the lies
Just wanna get things straights
But I can't see past the hate
You don't know what you did wrong
So we put it in a song, well

I hope you sing yourself to sleep tonight
I hope you sing it all alone
I hope you sing yourself to sleep tonight
Because your true colors have shown

You used to say, "I can't be held accountable for anyone or anything at all."
You used to say, "Why can't things always work out my way?" I'm black and blue and all you want is gray.

Wrapped tight like cellophane
Blood can't flow to my brain
Keep thinking of the past
Since my breathings fading fast
I never stood a chance
This will be my last stance
I found my way by now
You won't be seeing me around, well

I hope you sing yourself to sleep tonight
I hope you sing it all alone
I hope you sing yourself to sleep tonight
Because your true colors have shown

You used to say, "I can't be held accountable for anyone or anything at all."
You used to say, "Why can't things always work out my way?" I'm black and blue and all you want is gray.

You used to say, "I can't be held accountable for anyone or anything at all."
You used to say, "Why can't things always work out my way?" I'm black and blue and all you want is gray.
Track Name: Bruises and Sabotage
These black and white photographs
Are faded and worn
But it's all that I have left of you.
If I could do it all again
I'd grab time by the second hand
To slow it down as much as I can
To make those moments last forever.

I'll read all the letters and look at pictures and think Fondly of you.
But I can't take much more because all I want is one more second with you.

And here's the part where I lay broken
And you walk away with scars
And though you don't like to admit it
I'm still bleeding in your heart
So here we are again
Always trying to amend
We talk a lot but we don't know
what's really hidden down this twisted road

I'll read all the letters and look at pictures and think Fondly of you.
But I can't take much more because all I want is one more second with you.

You made a habit of
Not keeping promises.
Call it love or lust
Just please stop calling
When you say you needed space again,
Well you're a liar
Because the last thing you want to see
Is bridges on fire.
