Veteran band members C. Lew (guitar/vocals) and Tim Preston (drums) recorded their 3rd EP live with new member, HCC (keys/vocals) at Blue Room Productions in Bethesda, Maryland. In collaboration with producer, mixing and mastering engineer Conrad Osipowicz, Megaphone Barons recorded three tracks during an epic two-hour session: “Pink Elephant” and “Send Somebody Else”—which first appeared on Menagerie (2011) –as well as a previously unrecorded pop-punk track “East Falls Church.”

Live follows their self-recorded debut EP, Menagerie (2011) and here.us.now. (2013). In addition to having several of their songs featured on radio stations–DC 101 and HFS Baltimore 97.5– their song "Soggy Ground" was named to DC 101’s Best of 2011 List.

Track Name: East Falls Church
East of the fallen church a sullen scene unfolded under faded grays of a new twilight
They sat closely with clasped hands on a wall made of cemented river rock
In the unnecessary shade of a tired willow tree
All of this scene setting for a man too scared to kiss what might have become
Become his future bride

It grew late without incidence
Two disappointed souls regretted his failure
Say it grew late with out incidence two disappointed souls regretted his failure
They regretted his failures
Track Name: Pink Elephant
If we did...
If we did...

I got a call the other day from that zoo
Zookeeper panicked asking what I knew
Not much until yesterday when it arrived on my doorstep
Hiding something like a solicitor
But with a trunk like that, who could be mistaken?
Well, you can’t even fool the most naive of my friends

Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen (Even if we did)
Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen

We took an oath of silence it seems
Too young to run out of energy
A circus can be so damning
Chained up, among children laughing
Zoo wasn’t much better
But at this point none of that matters

Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen (Even if we did)
Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen

We don't even talk about it
and if we did...
If we did...

Surely you know someone with a gun,
We can shoot it up then drag it through the doorway
Instead we’ll just stand staring
which won’t help things as it enters the kitchen
Put away the pans and lock the doors
'cause things are coming undone
You know you can’t stop a stampede, baby
We'll stand in silence and wait for it to come
Wait for it to come, Wait for it to come
Track Name: Send Somebody Else
We'll send somebody else next time,
well you don’t have to
Send somebody else next time,
Well you don’t have to

Adderall, what are they raving for?
To feed the vultures
Coffee talk just to cut them into friends
We're drowning in the...

Them overpaid executives, they’re fighting against us
and they’ll determine market value
Well tyranny is tyranny, I say
Tyranny is tyranny
Let it come from whom it may
Tyranny is tyranny
Let it come from whom it may

Adderall, what are they raving for?
To bleed the vultures
Coffee talk just to cut them into friends
We're drowning in the red
After all, what are they paying me for?
We’re never too sure
Did we all just fool them all again?
Yeah, we did, uh huh!

Tyranny is reliable (one more year under the sun)
Tyranny is hard to, it’s hard to beat (one more year under the sun)
Tyranny is a proven mate (one more year under the sun)
Tyranny is tyranny (one more year under the sun)
(One more year under the sun)
(One more year)
