paul durham and black lab are pleased to announce
the release of their third album.

five years in the making, passion leaves a trace finds the band returning to the experimental foundation laid with their critically acclaimed geffen debut your body above me. passion bristles with deeply personal epics, each carved out of driving rock & roll, lush electronics and pure savage desire.

tracks from this brand new, 12-song, self-produced album can already be heard on FX’s promotion for the season debut of “the shield,” in CBS’s “numb3rs,” “ABC’s “6 degrees,”
and films the benchwarmers and lovewrecked.

using the incandescent riffs and soaring vocals that hooked fans in the first place, passion mixes walls of guitar with unexpected moments of synthesizer, breakbeat, and complete emotional breakdown. The majesty of “mine again,” the jet-black remorse of “this night,” the lush electronic loss of “weightless,” the driving blast of "the real you," the ache of "ghost in your mind," the schizophrenic poetry of “pictures of people,” and the slow trip of “the window” – all these different vibes come together to paint a portrait of love and the joy of total obsession.

lyrics:
 

there are things I have done
there's a place I have gone
there's a beast and I let it run
now it's running my way

there are things I regret
that you can't forgive, you can't forget
there's a gift that you sent
you sent it my way

so take this night
wrap it around me like a sheet
I know I'm not forgiven
but I need a place to sleep
take this night
and lay me down on the street
I know I'm not forgiven
but I hope that I'll be given
some peace

there's a game that I played
there are rules I had to break
there's mistakes that I made
but I made them my way

so take this night
wrap it around me like a sheet
I know I'm not forgiven
but I need a place to sleep
take this night
and lay me down on the street
I know I'm not forgiven
but I hope that I'll be given
some peace...
some peace
