about

Sometimes it takes tragedy to create beauty. 6 years ago Sundressed singer/guitarist Trevor Hedges was dead to rights on a bed in an Arizona hospital. Addiction, at any time, can take down the strongest of people.

Trevor‘s struggles with addiction are detailed vividly in their new album “Dig Up A Miracle”. He states, “This release is a culmination of a journey to find the Sundressed sound that came to fruition with Garrett Tretta (drums), Forest Waldorf (Guitar) and Evan Kees (Bass). Lyrically it deals with continuing the struggle of living a sober life despite a rough past of addiction, while finding hope and passion for life.” For most people music is an outlet, for Trevor it’s an integral part of his life. “Music has been vital to my sobriety and hope anyone who struggles with any kind of life altering malady can find hope in our songs.”

Sundressed will release “Dig Up A Miracle” on April 7th via Take This To Heart Records on 12”/CD/Digital. Their honest, true to life storytelling is mixed with spot on melodies and sing-along choruses that urge the listener to stop what they are doing and grab the mic.

FFO: Modern Baseball, Weezer, The Menzingers

Track Name: The Dirt
WAIT I DON'T WANT TO BUT THEY SAY WE HAVE TO I DON'T WANT TO ACT THAT WAY. THEY SAY IT’S A PROCESS BUT I FIND IT OBNOXIOUS, THE POET IN ME CAN'T STAY STRAIGHT. SO JUST STICK TO THE CONCEPT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE HONEST. JUST BE WILLING TO THROW IT AWAY. WAIT I DON'T WANT TO BUT THEY SAY WE HAVE TO I DON'T WANT TO ACT THAT WAY. BECAUSE PROGRESS IS PERFECT, THE LINE IN THE DIRT SAYS YOU CAN PICK A SIDE ITS OKAY. ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DRINKING, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO, ALL MY FRIENDS ARE SINGING, AND I CAN'T SEEM TO STAY IN TUNE. SO SERIOUS AND SILENT NEVER BEEN VIOLENT, NOW YOUR EYES ARE FILLED WITH HATE. SO WHAT CAME OVER YOU, THIS SURE ISN'T THE SOBER YOU BUT CLEARLY IT'S ALL THE RAGE. I DON'T WANT TO SHARE MY BIRTHDAY, I DON'T WANT TO SIT IN CIRCLES, I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR NEW RIPPED JEANS. ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DRINKING, I DON’T K NOW WHAT IM GOING TO DO.
Track Name: Curve Ball
THE DEBT COLLECTORS CALLED AGAIN, YOU’RE OVERDUE WHEN CAN YOU SEND A CHECK OR CASH OR I O U? THE DEATH OF WHAT WE SAID WE'D DO.WE NEED NO REASON TO IGNORE, TO BUY THE THINGS WE CAN'T "AFFORD". THE GADGETS AND THE COMFORT FIRST THE SETTLING OF OUR WORTH. WE WON’T, WE WON'T WE WON’T. HANG UP HANG UP AND LET THE LIE SURFACE. WAKE UP WAKE UP DOES ANYONE DESERVE THIS? CALL FOR YOURSELF OR DON'T CALL AT ALL. HANG UP, HANG UP AND LET THE LIE SURFACE. WORRY OFTEN BUYS SOME TIME IN THE CENTER OF OUR MEAGER MINDS. DEADLINES HANG OVER OUR HEADS THE X'S MARKED OVER OUR BEDS .SO TRY NOT TO ACT ON YOUR IMPULSES, THE LIGHTS FLASH YOUR BODY CONVULSES. WERE JUST AS FUCKED AS WE THINK WE ARE SO WHY NOT JUST BUY A BRAND NEW CAR. (WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, DOES ANYONE DESERVE THE THINGS THAT WE AVOID FOR NOW UNTIL THEY GO AND COME AROUND. WAKE UP) CANT WALK INTO A ROOM WITHOUT A CURVEBALL.
Track Name: Dig Up A Miracle
THE HOSPITAL KNOWS YOU BY FIRST NAME AND THEY PRAY NEVER TO HAVE YOU BACK. YOU BLAME IT ON A FORMER LOVER. WHO CAN’T SEEM TO GET YOU ON THE RIGHT TRACK? NOW YOUR FALLING ASLEEP IN THIS DEADLY HEAT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT OF YOUR CAR AND YOUR CALLING ME LIKE "WHY CAN'T WE DIG UP THE MIRACLE THAT GOT YOU THIS FAR?" I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT, BUT YOU COULD PAINT IT AND A PILL CAN'T FIX IT READ THESE BOOKS, BUT DON'T FOLLOW THEM EXACTLY ONLY YOU CAN RECOGNIZE THE BAD THINGS. HONEST AS HELL YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL I ONCE WAS A BOY LIKE YOU. STUMBLE INTO WORK AND THE BOSS IGNORES IT, SEE IT ON YOUR FACE ITS NOT, THE LAST TIME, OH NO, ITS NEVER THE LAST TIME, ALMOST LIKE YOU WISH YOU'D GET CAUGHT. PRAYING TO GOD IN THE NAME OF THE LAW, AND YOU WISH YOU WISH, YOU WISH YOU WISH YOU GOT CAUGHT WITH YOUR HANDS UP, YOU CAN'T EVEN STAND UP. MIRACLES CAN'T GET YOU THAT FAR.
Track Name: Moving Out
MOTHER, MOTHER, MOTHER, FEEL THE PAIN IN YOUR FACE. ITS ALWAYS COMING FROM THE LOWEST PLACE. YOUR TWO BOYS HAVE GROWN AND WENT THERE OWN WAYS. BUT THEY'LL STILL HUMBLY BE YOUR BABES. CUZ THERES ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS A ROOM AND L ALWAYS ALWAYS, ALWAYS, BE THERE SOON. OH I'M NEVER MOVING OUT OF YOUR HEART .IT NEVER FALLS APART TIME AND TIME AGAIN YOU'VE BEEN BETRAYED. YOU NEVER HELD A GRUDGE AND NOW I'M SAVED. CROSSED THE T'S WHILE I WAS LOST IN SPACE, A DEBT THAT I COULD NEVER FULLY REPAY I WAS SICK AND I WAS RESTLESS AND I NEVER THOUGHT ID GET THIS. YOU'RE THE YELLOW BIRD CAME FLYING IN THE WHITE FLAG IS UP, AND THATS ENOUGH.
Track Name: Naked
BRING THE COFFEE TO BED I AM DONE RESTING MY HEAD, I CAN'T BE LETHARGIC ANYMORE. RINSE MY HANDS AND WASH MY FACE, I AM CLEAN OUT THE GATES. TO HEAVEN OR HELL? I DON'T KNOW. AND I CRAWLED THROUGH FOLDED CLOTHES AND SHEETS, TRYING TO BE DISCREET BUT I'M NOT. AND THESE WALLS HOLDING FINGER PRINTS AND DUST, ARE THE ONLY THING LEFT, LEFT OF US. NAKED, I'VE BEEN FEELING NAKED; I CAN'T EVEN FAKE IT, LYING NEXT TO YOU. HALF-DRESSED, LYING ON A MATTRESS, TALKING LIKE AN ACTRESS, MISSING ALL HER CUES. SO I GUESS ILL SIGN HERE, AND I MIGHT NOT SHED A TEAR TO THE ONES THAT ARE LEFT BEHIND. BECAUSE I STILL RUN THIS SHOW THIS IS A HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY HOME. IS IT HEAVEN OR HELL? I DON'T KNOW. AND I CALLED IN EVERY CHANCE I GOT AND I SAID I WAS DEAD BUT I'M NOT. FEELING SMALL IN A ROOM FULL OF FRIENDS, UNTIL EVERYONE THERE TURNED TO STONE, EVERYONE THERE TURNED TO STONE. YOU’RE ONLY HOLDING ME. (YOU FIND COMFORT IN CHOKING ME, WE WILL NEVER BE MAGAZINES)(YOU AND ME ARE BOTH END SCENE EXTRAS, WE TELL A STORY BUT WE DON'T GET ANY LINES)
Track Name: Best Of / Worst Of (Bonus Track)
CALM, GOD WILLING ,ILL BE STRONGER THAN I ONCE WAS. BELONG,TO SOMETHING, FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE. WRONG, I COULD BE, I'M SO DESPERATE, APPEARING BLEEDING. COULD THE HALF OF IT BE MISINTERPRETED? I WAS YOUNGER WHEN I STARTED. NOW I CAN'T REMEMBER IT. I BLINDLY FOLLOWED EVERYTHING, THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP LIVING, TO SIT IN CIRCLES OF CHAIRS AND ACT LIKE WE'RE BETTER PREPARED. WHILE HIDING PROGRESS IN OUR SLEEP , THE BEST OF ME IS THE WORST YOU'VE SEEN OH I DIDN'T GRAB A TICKET. OH I GUESS I MUST HAVE MISSED IT. OH ILL PICK UP WHERE I LEFT OFF. I DON'T AGREE WITH EVERYONE BUT THANK YOU ALL FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE. I'VE SPENT SOME TIME IN BARS AND NEVER HAD A DRINK. I'VE TOLD THE TRUTH FOR YEARS AND NEVER HAD TO BLINK.I WAS WALKING WITH A CRUTCH BUT I KICKED IT AWAY. I FELT FINGERS POINTING WARNING ME TO STAY. WE COULD MISS EVERY THING WE READ WERE NUMBED BY COMMUNITY AND MISSED OPPORTUNITYWE LAUGH TO SOFTEN ALL THE BLOWS. WE LIVE IN FEAR BUT NO ONE KNOWS.
