about

The Modern Egotist...he puts his heart in capitalism and wears nothing but an Armani tag on his sleeve. He evokes the best and worst in all of us, the person we secretly want to be, the person we love to hate. Our debt is his bank account. We work and he plays. Our dreams are his reality. There's nothing more to him than what can be reflected in mirror, a tangible representation of all our hopes and aspirations slowly fading.

"Fantastic bass lines and rhythmic guitar riffs produce a great sound for some rocking summer tunes." -We Are Unseen, August 2012

"If you miss the good ole' days when a rock band consisted of the basic four...then you absolutely have to check out the sexy, back-to-basics rock 'n' roll of Burning Jet Black...old school with a modern twist." -The Deli Magazine, July 2012

Top Eight Emerging Artists, July 2012, Kings of A&R

"Feels dirty in a good way." -FreeIndie, July 2012

"These gritty, sexy boys give rock something to be proud of. Drums, bass, and grrrreat raw, manly vocals...the Strokes meets the Foo Fighters after a few shots with the Rolling Stones...open your ears to one of the most tantalizing rock experiences of the year." -Music Under Fire, July 2012

"(N)ew ideas and new inspirations...and the result is brilliant." -Jungle Indie Rock, June 2012

"(A) snarling rocker...the sound of what modern rock radio should be playing these days." -Given and Taken in Ink, May 2012

Track Name: Magazine Girl
While your friends are growing up and taking vows
You’re still giving all your body will allow
But all the boys are gonna love you now
And your talent means so much to me
Now I can’t breathe
And my knees start to shake
You’re gonna be my heartbreak

My little magazine girl
My little magazine girl
Slip us a smile
Show the camera your world
My little magazine girl

The Jesus freaks are knocking down your door
Calling you a sinner and a whore
But all the boys are gonna love you more
And your art it means so much to me
Now I can’t breathe
And my knees start to shake
You’re gonna be my heartbreak

My little magazine girl
My little magazine girl
Slip us a smile
Show the camera your world
My little magazine girl

The devil’s come and taken me over
My love for you is big
And it’s only getting harder
The devil’s come and taken me over
Stared into your eyes
But now my eyes are creeping lower

Now I can’t breathe
And my knees start to shake
You’re gonna be my heartbreak

My little magazine girl
My little magazine girl
Slip us a smile
Show the camera your world
My little magazine girl
Show us your world
Show us your world
Show us your world
My little magazine
Track Name: Bleeding Heart
Girl you say you want me
Girl you say you need me
But you only want me for your soul
And bleeding heart

But if you say it’s over
You’ll make it much too easy
And, oh my god, I’ll want you for myself
And nobody else

It’s like your bleeding heart
Is spilling on the floor
Crawling in the dark
It’s coming back for more
With all its faith in me

Girl you say you need me
It’s like a contradiction
‘Cause even when I cheat you sell me on
Your bleeding heart

But if you say it’s over
I’ll grovel for forgiveness
And, oh my god, I’ll want you for myself
And nobody else

Girl you say you want me
Girl you say you need me
And you’re gonna try to save my soul
But I won’t change

It’s like your bleeding heart
Is spilling on the floor
Crawling in the dark
It’s coming back for more
You’re coming back for more
You’re coming back for more
With all your faith in me
Track Name: No Soul
When we were young
Hymns were sung but never sold
Never sold

You flung your hands
In His plans, they’re getting cold
Getting cold

If you’re fearful
Finger them out
If you’re vengeful
Scream when they shout
If you’re wealthy
Blessed is your name
If you’re wicked
Live with no shame

You’ve got no soul
You’ve got no soul
Soul, soul

The debt parents paid
Prophets pray for little kids
Little kids

Faced with their fate
The Maker’s bait swallows them in
Swallows them

If you’re fearful
Finger them out
If you’re vengeful
Scream when they shout
If you’re wealthy
Blessed is your name
If you’re wicked
Live with no shame

You’ve got no soul
You’ve got no soul
Soul, soul

One chance to toss
Shit when you’ve lost, see where it lands
Where it lands

Your faith in him
Struck on a whim for all your fans
All your fans

You’ve got no soul
You’ve got no soul
Soul, soul
SOUL
