Still Eighteen thanks Emerging Indie Bands Blog for the awesome review of Still Eighteen's debut EP, Bullets to Dust! 

"The Dominican Republic based Canadian originating protest-rock trio Still Eighteen are set to release their début EP Bullets To Dust on the 24th of November.
Having had the fortune of having snaffled a shot of whisky whilst sitting on straw bale as I listened to the approximately a quarter of an hour EP (available on bandcamp) I would posit this is something to add to the collection. 

Still Eighteen are able to fulminate against a system of geo-political rectitude whilst becoming neither belligerent nor pleading as the bluesy-rock guitar echoes across the room to accompaniment of punctuated drum skins whilst punctilious bass lays with burnished vocal as the music spirals around the room and delivers sounds of incredulity that the world has become one of tribal in-fighting promulgated by those with no vested interest other than for their own amusement and betterment on the skeletons of those they abuse.

From the four track release the opener – and my pick of the EP – also the title – Bullets & Dust".
STILL EIGHTEEN'S debut EP "Bullets to Dust" is ready for preorder! You will be able to download the feature song, Bullets & Dust right away!

STILL EIGHTEEN's original song "Superstar" Live video - Acoustic

Not Your Average Family Band!

STILL EIGHTEEN's is rapidly gaining views on the new video sharing website; They have been holding the 1st and 2nd spot in the "new" category for their videos for: "Diamonds & Gold" and "Give Me a Reason"  90,000 views so far and heartwarming comments from around the world! 

STILL EIGHTEEN's posts their music video for their original song: "Diamonds & Gold" on YouTube along with the message:
Are Diamonds & Gold Taking Our Souls?

STILL EIGHTEEN's latest original song, “Diamonds & Gold,” metaphorically exemplifies society’s mindless and destructive behavior in its unending pursuit to fulfill its insatiable desires.

"We know it’s hard to resist the consumer machine taunting us to buy, buy, buy. Incessant advertising vies for our attention, emotionally luring us into believing how wonderful we will feel and how desirable we will be if we just purchase what they are selling.

What is it inside of us that compels us to want more? We think it will make us happy, but materialism’s happiness is momentary, and then we want the next thing that will bring us that “everlasting” contentment. ­

But how many of us have found lasting happiness with living this way?

What is the real price we are paying for obtaining the latest and greatest?  Many of us are overworked, stressed, sick, and indebted; suffering from a lack of meaningful purpose and fulfillment that we try to fix with shiny and sparkling new things.

What is it about us that inhibits us from seeing the causes of our own suffering? What is it within us that allows us to turn a blind eye to the social and environmental degradation our consumptive behavior causes around the world?

We might say, “But consumerism creates economic growth.” Yes, but this economic growth isn’t very economical if it depletes our natural resources, polluting our water and air and leading us toward our own extinction.

As the lyrics in the song say, “We are trading our lives for fool’s desires.”

Moving to a small developing country has certainly tamed our desires. It is hard to have so much when you are surrounded by so many who have so little. However, as a family, we know we are not innocent of this as we like to buy the latest and greatest as well (albeit with far less voraciousness than we did when we were immersed in the consumer climate).  Living here has forced us to question our choices and discover what is important to us.

You don’t have to move to a developing country to ask these questions. Let’s take personal inventory: how can we as individuals choose differently? How can we acquire more meaning and satisfaction, that isn’t fleeting and doesn’t have planned obsolescence built into it?

It is imperative that we change before Diamonds & Gold really do take our souls".
