The band is completed by Roberto Piccioni on Keys and Alex Lapointe on Bass. Black Diamond Bay is renowned for a great live show and Calm Awaits has been receiving international acclamations as a great album start to finsih.

- The Coast

"a little bit haunting, a little bit experimental, a little bit epic. The new project of former Dears guitarist Patrick Krief and drummer George Donoso, the similarities come as no surprise, but the songs on Calm Awaits manage to work the fragility of much of contemporary indie rock into a bold, confident sound."

"The record lets Krief and his gang explore more lush arrangements, winding pop psychedelia and intricate harmonizing"

-Chart Attack

Track Name: Mother's Arms
Gonna hide my face
'cause I don't want to feel this shame
All I asked for was a love so deep
That was prayed for with a bleeding lip

Is this what we asked for
Is this what we wanted to feel
oh no
oh no

So is this kind the kind that killed
All the sisters that did give in
Now we plead cause we believe
What you asked for is so real
so real

Is this what we asked for
Is this why we believe
we believe in love
for all the wrong reasons

When love it just wants to be
This love it just wants to be

Is this what we asked for
Is this why we care
Track Name: What We Wanted
I can't believe the things you're saying
You're telling me that it's too late
When all this time you've stopped believing
That we could ever find a way

Love is all I am living for
I can't hide my pain behind a smile
Take it all cause you're beautiful
Better open your eyes and try

I can't believe the things I'm seeing
You've lost yourself you change each day
And all this time I was believing
You were the one to guide the way

Love is all I am living for
I can't hide my pain behind a smile
Take it all cause you're beautiful
Better open your eyes and try

Love is what we wanted
Love is what we needed
Track Name: Brothers In Exile
There's blood on the face of pain painted walls
and I can't break free
They Smile crooked teeth, and wink evil eyes
at those who succeed.
There's only one victim involved
There's only one victim involved
And he Smiles just like me
Cries Just like me
Believing the lies, we're leaving our homes
I trusted your face
I followed the truth
but it's gone.
Copper thrown sharp
By faces of Sand
That look just like me
There's fist broken glass under my feet
We came to be free
There's only one victim involved
There's only one victim involved
And he Smiles just like me
Cries Just like me
Believing the lies, we're leaving our homes
I trusted your face
I followed the truth
but it's gone.
You've got to kill the preaching
got to kill the preaching now
There's only one victim involved
There's only one victim involved
And he Smiles just like me
Cries Just like me
Believing the lies, we're leaving our homes
I trusted your face
I followed the truth
but it's gone.
Track Name: Blue Mace
Clowns have come to save my life
Without luck, without triumph
Don't need counseling and all the pills don't work
I need love to set me free
Can I ever make a difference when
I pass my pain on to the ones I love
I've lived loss but nothing real
All the people that dictated my worth
they're all worthless freeloading no-talents who live life without a cause
without us they would burn
Can I ever take a crutchless walk
when I've been pushed against a see-through wall
Without luck we will burn
I see scum that has status glorify it make god of it
kind of person I believe in doesn't need me doesn't see I live strong for something real
Nothing is lost
Nothing is lost
Loves opened up my eyes,
took away the fear
but they lived so far away
it's never gonna stop
it's never gonna stop
haunting me

Love is our blue mace
Track Name: First Time I See You Again
I guess that's how it's gonna be
I've got nothing left to hide
But brown eyes sewn shut from lack of sleep
that disgrace without a lie

I guess that our worlds are gonna meet
when there's nowhere left to hide
withered war torn eyes will stare and fill
The void that's veiled by smiles

Telling me
Listen up, I made the mistake
I fell in love
with love itself
Now I wish that I had
That I had shown you
My darkest side is real
So very real
Just one more chance I promise the world to you this time.

I guess that I would walk the streets
that I've walked too many times
Just take my soul if I should fall asleep
And leave the rest, leave the rest behind
With nothing to say
Track Name: New Soldier
I can't find the strength to let you go
You've been running around
You've been asking for more
Just take a look at yourself
You're living life in the past
The laugh lines on your face are all you have
It's not enough
It's not enough
To get what you give
You'll always want more
I guess it's all the same
You'll sing the song in the end
You've burned the bridges in you mind and it's not real
And you always smile
it seems so out of place
"They've got this they've got that they've got this they've got that they've got everything they need we've got nothing at all"
It's not enough
It's never enough
to have who you have
You'll always want moe
There's no good signs
We've lost all our time
You got what you gave
and now you're on your own
Just shed some soul on us
Track Name: Calm Awaits
Get through this together
Kill for love or die alone
Keep me proud forever
And keep your head on straight
Run away and god will forsake me
Calm awaits
Track Name: Weekend War
The weak can be sold if people are buying
They still believe that no one is lying
We can confess if you want us to
And we can confess that we needed you
We can't be sold and we can't be biased
We can be loud cause we know how
This situation will never unfold
The blood from my love will never run cold
We can confess if you want us to
And we can confess that we needed you
We can confess that we wanted you
But we only confessed cause we wanted to
Sold
pleased to spend my life with you
Run she's getting away
Track Name: Mercury
Thought that heaven was a place on earth
You've mistaken a thieving mind for art
A lost soul can't be found
Cannot be tamed down
Sold yourself today, to the world for love
So mistaken it's taken all you've got
A lost soul can't be found
Cannot be tamed down
I'm taking on anyone who lives lies
All I want is to see true love grow strong.
Track Name: The Wrath of Your Darkness
This mind is lost
I'm losing control of its thoughts
at night they are drowned
By warn crying eyes that beg me for more
I'm carefully placing my thoughts
so carefully placing my thoughts
I'm giving myself to you
Just giving myself to you
Cause I can
After all this time alone
Do you still care
Does leaving all you've got behind set you free?
Hold yourself open wide for me
(Leave behind, this place)
