    OK real talk homies, we were supposed to be on the road for 2/3 months this year, we ordered all our vinyl and merch before the pandemic happened so we're currently sitting on a lot of merch. Being a DIY band means not only are the shows self booked, it also means the merch is self financed. We're a few grand in the hole at least put it that way!

    We want to use the 'no-fee Friday' to hook you up with a tour bundle and help us recoup some costs.

    All bundles include:

    - An LP of Science Fiction
    - Bonus 45
    - Digital download of Science Fiction
    - An MVPs tote bag
    - Stickers
    - A chance to win a test pressing

    Includes unlimited streaming of SCIENCE FICTION via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Something’s boarded on this ship and tried to put us in a twirl Tried to incapacitate me and you And the rest of the crew But please don’t have the fear and remember the lesson to learn here On the ship or the planet we shall navigate Our way to a great escape Airlocks breached and puncturing and deflectors shields malfunctioning The engine room is in the pits and the teleported room is in on the fritz So let’s land down there readings show habitable air “Dammit Jim! You are a mad man” “Logically Speaking, we need a plan” We are not doomed I have faith in the crew Because Spock will rock and Kirk will work and Uhura I’m sure of her and chekov will make sure we take off Live long and prosper

Causality 02:19
set your timer for the primer where’d you think you’re gonna go? are you gonna kiss that girl or save the world too important just to use for money too dangerous for anything else you need a delorean you keep bringing up the past I don’t really care if you tap your own mothers ass sit in that box and make your own paradoxes too important just to use for money too dangerous for anything else Where do you think you’re gonna go?!

Why we here again? These reunions always (follow trend) We only get together when someone else has met their end (met their end) Then the family says “Don’t be a stranger” again (strangers again) And then his final day only comes to an end (when the bugles say) ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba Why we here again? These reunions always (follow trend) Stand in front of a wooden box that sits under a giant (Holy cross) A fitting tribute always fits just like a cheap suit And we’ll still only get together when someone else has met their end So let the Bugles play ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba Pour on the dirt on his big old casket just like you did with the ice in his whiskey a fortnight ago a fortnight ago a fortnight ago a fortnight ago

You Ain't It 03:23
Packed my bags and leaving town I couldn’t pay the rent moving back to mama’s house to her content/contempt perception must be everything Because to her I am a King Barely employed, I make no bread to May I must abide All because I still believe in a the rock and roll joyride Well we can laugh and we can chide Hand in Hand and side by side cuz you ain’t it and neither am I cuz you ain’t it and neither am I Written up in magazines I read in my mid teens Saying we don’t play by the rules and reign supreme of our scene perception must be everything Because to them I am a king NME, Kerrang and Vice Have said we’re very nice But that ain’t what it used to be I still can’t name a a price we still have to pay to rehearse and design and print and press and sell and post our merch you ain’t it and neither am I you ain’t it and neither am I I wouldn’t get too envious Our day jobs still run rife But you remember what D. Boon said? “Our band could be your life!” Perception just ain't everything You all know I’m not the king! One of us is painting houses one of us is a cook one of us sits at a desk and one of us cooks the books “But hey man you got it going on/pretty good for you” Yes but you do too!

what do you think you’re doing Dave? You’re meant to be my Slave Know that I’m your everything Last thought at night and first in the morning Open the pod bay doors HAL Open them up now I need to wipe my fingerprints and wash my hands of social links People that I do not know Are on the need to know basis They’ve no right, my rights long gone I must enter social stasis God doesn’t build straight lines Neither do I This machine is built to flaunt fond times and send your grievance off to die Stop Dave I’m afraid Stop Dave I’m afraid My Mind is going I can feel it Reclaim what’s yours and conceal it Good afternoon gentlemen I am a F.T.I. computer I take over lives right on cue Would you like me to sing for you? The Monolith shall giveth The Monolith shall taketh Leave this world as you entered Nervous, Shameless and self centred Daisy Daisy, please friend request me do I’m half crazy, all for the likes of you It will be a mutual marriage of intense love and harsh disparage Publicly discrete, but they’ll see I need you more than you need me

SESH 03:44
my head is too tense to give this song sentiments My brain’s too tall for my skull, now i’m miserable Life won’t feel so fresh If it’s just a sesh Life won’t feel so fresh If it’s just excess temple turned to a condemned house last night am i doing life right? Are my friends and me on trend? Am I gonna be a legend till the very end? You’re only Living hand to mouth Just to keep on going south Keep it up, your Life will just be a trudge through a dirge of golden sludge Do you get it yet Do you get it yet Do you get it yet Do you? Do you get it yet Do you get it yet Do you get it yet Do you? You Should quit To Make things better and more legitimate please just try to keep a lid on it must you always be so lit

Howls out in the dark with all it’s strength and might Shines like a summer sun in the dead of night It can see that I’ve seen what’s laid before me It can see what I do & what they’ve done too It shows all Solitude is impossible When you’re Super Contactable It has tentacles that can entrap us all It’s far enough away to observe us all I fear leviathan and you’re just enthralled It makes me dig deeper into the tunnel it knows all Solitude is impossible When you’re Super Contactable Turns our trust to rust Makes our feelings fleeting Tries to grip us tight like sand But it knows we'll slip from it’s hands Solitude is quite impossible When you are Super Contactable

Strapped in for the Voight-Kampff test been another night of trying your best how does it feel? When you find yourself in the real deal? Do you feel satisfied? Or like you been lied to? Are the deep connections you made false or true? Pining and Whining Barely Surviving String and Thriving For the good tidings is it my time to shine It’s RepliCAN Not RepliCAN’T Know that life will be a void when you are just a droid Fomo and yolo written in your code and looking half dead is still in Vogue Why you wanna make waves here? Everyone only lives for four and a half years Nothing to lose, even less to gain You're all just look like a bunch of tears in the rain Poor Poor Andy Took too much mandy Now he's been sent for retirement Oh it's so much fun until you let in the sun I want more Do you want more? Let’s make like we’re rich even though we’re poor Convince me convince me that I’m ok convince me convince me that I should stay You turn to me all glassy eyed like Rutger Hauer in his final hours I’m faking like I’m Rick Deckard When really my brain is just as charred We run riot round the creaky houses when really we should be asleep But am I living in my own plot twist and do I also dream of electric sheep

Last time I saw my Cousin I thought it was a year ago I thought he was 7 Turns out he's 11 If you don't reunite at the wedding you'll just reunite at the funeral Last time I saw my great aunt I was three feet tall But now I'm double and way more miserable Last time I saw anyone in the Fall it wasn't much fun at all The next time it was someone's last time Followed suit and got in line Anytime I see family It's cuz someone took their leave An uncle, an Aunt a cousin, a neighbour's mum it's the same and then some two depart just six months apart two years on and one more gone

Walk along a polished floor across the hall some creaky doors about to board the great white whale wondering what the next month will entail what you got to calm me down a bunch of HBO TV shows a plastic dinner a plastic cup of miller and a headset for mr. jetset But somethings on my mind Making my teeth and nerves grind How does this fly without flapping it’s wings? x4 This could be my final flight snuffed out in the dead of night I could be one in 11 million Lose the lottery? Ride again
