SUN DOGS 02:41
I go, go, go but always waiting in line I know, know, know we’re all ahead of our time and she says…always… Always doesn’t always mean forever Always doesn’t always mean together You always said you’d be here at the end of the end but it’s almost over and I’m thinking of what you said again. Oh you said wait up, wait up for me don’t wait up for me we’ll drink all the evenings away, always, always all you and me. Oh now now now i’m alone in the outfield Oh dear my dear, deer in the headlights with sun in eyes No easy pop flies tonight, we’re all going out for a good time till she says Always doesn’t always mean forever Always doesn’t always mean together You always said you’d be here at the end of the end but it’s almost over and I’m thinking of what you said again. Oh you said wait up wait up for me. I said wait up wait up for me. I’ve been drinking all my evenings away. My lungs are just an ashtray for my cigarette decay. I hope I come across you again some day. Oh I hope I come across you again someday. In a mansion, in the street or the ditch where you left me. Oh I hope I come across you again someday

SHIN BRUISE 03:00
Spending most of my days learning how to kickflip It's not going great, my feet are strangely shaped but maybe one day All the things I do, I do to keep my mind off of you, it's not going great you were pretty great I've never known where I come from You were home when I never had one It's all I can do, forget about you You were all I had but I never had you Spending most of my days learning how to sing right It's not going great, my voice is squeaky but it's getting better I wrote about you and me and them and us and why it ended I don't have the answers to the questions but they always linger I don't know if you feel better I don't know if I'll feel better I've never known where I come from You were home when I never had one It's all I can do, forget about you You were all I had but I never had you

Hearts around my eyes as my teeth touch your veneers Bloody nose of a rich girl, you're a painful souvenir Hearts around my eyes as my teeth broke your skin The air conditioner is broken, the evidence she glistens Heart in my throat, oh it's love like pulling teeth Scratches down my side, in blood is how she wrote Hurt in my heart, you're a painful lumineer I loved you more than one night, but you don't remember me If you disappear all too quick in the middle of the night All I've got to remember you are these bite marks in my neck So whats your name? Where you from? Where you going? I know it's hard to be in New York in the summer So whats your name? Where you from? Where you going? I know it's hard to be in New York in the summer

POCKETKNIFE 02:14
Dangerous when you drink but I'm not scared cuz I've known you forever You're looking for a fight so I take away your pocketknife You're nodding off on me, my shoulders carry the weight You cry at the end of the night before you fell asleep When you die, heaven will burn No one sets a fire like yours When the comets hit the earth You're asleep with bourbon on your shirts Oh you're sober as a flower, rising with the sun And you're drunk like hell's thorns, burning up again Oh you're lovely like your mother, saint among men but your demons will return Your fingers shake like earthquakes and you're tearing us apart I hope for better mornings where we remember how we start The world alight and heads pounding, I'll find you in the dark When you die, heaven will burn No one sets a fire like yours When the comets hit the earth You're asleep with bourbon on your shirts Oh you're sober as a flower, rising with the sun And you're drunk like hell's thorns, burning up again Oh you're lovely like your mother, saint among men but your demons will return

RECLUSA 03:48
Stay woke, stay young amphibian You were my cold-blooded girlfriend Spider bitten hospital ridden, slept better in the air conditioning In my gown so elegantly bound to my IV holding me down Venom turns to higher fevers, you gotta reach rock bottom to swim back up I wanna get it in my hospital gown, wanna feel something warmer than my own blood Wanna be a nightmare dreamer, girlfriend stealer, summertime fever Wanna make out with the grim reaper, do my makeup with the devil at heaven's gates Might not get me anywhere, but anything is better than laying to wait Dancing down a hallway, praying that it's empty No one has seen me in my natural light, that's okay I'm not worth the sight Born a sinner and I'll die one too, which one was the worst, what did I do I wanna get it in my hospital gown, wanna feel something warmer than my own blood Wanna be a nightmare dreamer, girlfriend stealer, summertime fever Wanna make out with the grim reaper, do my makeup with the devil at heaven's gates Might not get me anywhere, but anything is better than laying to wait

DEVIL'S BOY 02:58
They got married in highschool She never told her mother Ran away to nowhere A year later he left her All hell broke loose, no closer to freedom All hell broke loose, we were born to lose him All hell broke loose The Devil's boy Search and destroy the Devil's Boy Born from a flower Thorn like his father No name to suit him No love to bloom him All hell broke loose, no closer to freedom All hell broke loose, we were born to lose him All hell broke loose The devil's boy Search and destroy the Devil's Boy

GHOST 1998 02:41
* 3 year old me singing/rambling about ghosts while my dad plays guitar from a old family VHS footage* 23 year old me covering that song: When you look at a ghost, when you look he goes so far ahead and he grabs onto your head, and he goes with you, and he goes with you and he falls down, and he falls down, and he falls down, and he falls down, and he falls down.

about

Upon arriving in Syracuse after growing up in Brussels, Belgium as an American expat, Lorenzo Gillis Cook was introduced to the fast paced, lo-fi sound of the American house show scene. Though he had been making music for years under the name Spark Alaska and a multitude of high school bands, the franticness and earnest expression being put on display in these upstate basements and attics was infectious.

In late 2014, Cook brought the first Petite League demo of friend and drummer Henry Schoonmaker, and the rest is history. Since then, the two have recorded two albums (Slugger and No Hitter), garnered press from Pitchfork, the Fader, Noisey, etc. , co-founded the notable Syracuse DIY venue Scarier Dome, and now reside in Brooklyn.

This bring us to present day, and the band’s the third record, Rips One Into the Night. Blending the sweet, bubblegum qualities of bedroom pop and the snot nosed fuzz of garage rock, Rips One Into the Night is Petite League fully-formed. Coming in at 10 tracks, Rips One Into the Night will be released on September 1st by The Native Sound and the band’s own Scarier Dome label.
