About the artist

BURNOS, blasting onto the hard rock scene with growling, guitar-driven music, infectious, haunting melodies, and heart-pumping rhythms, electrifies audiences and critics alike. Burnos hits the radio airwaves and digital stores with yet another heavy-hitting single, entitled Slip Away on September 8, 2015!

Burnos made their debut on Sirius XM's Octane radio station with their first three singles Octane, WarShip, and Syndrome of Decay. WarShip was showcased as a Sirius XM "Octane Accelerator," and lead vocalist, Melissa Burnos, was prominently featured on Sirius XM Octane’s "Women Who Rock Week" in February 2014. As a result of SXM Octane listener votes, WarShip rocketed to a spot on SXM Octane’s "TOP 15 BIG UNS COUNTDOWN" in May of 2014. Empowered by a strong, organic, grassroots fan demand, the independent rock band unleashed Syndrome of Decay to an eagerly awaiting, ever-growing fan base. With Syndrome of Decay, Burnos dominated the #1 spot for four consecutive weeks on Adrenaline 101 Radio’s “Top 10 Countdown!”

The female-fronted hard rock band is a collaboration of some of modern hard rock’s most seasoned musicians. With her dynamic vocals ranging from brash and powerful to sultry, Melissa Burnos teamed up with guitarist Eric Friedman (Tremonti, Creed) and drummer Garrett Whitlock (Tremonti) to form Burnos. They’ve conjured a riveting brand of hard rock combining poignant and provocative lyrics, soaring vocals, screaming prolific guitars, rich textures, and heavy, hard-hitting drumbeats. Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Slash, Chevelle, Incubus), the band’s forthcoming release is poised to impact the modern hard rock genre.

Burnos’ music is showcased on Sirius XM Satellite radio, North Dakota’s Rock 101 FM, and other terrestrial and Internet rock radio stations primarily due to fervent fan requests. The band’s music has even garnered the attention of MLB Texas Ranger, Chris Gimenez, as he has Burnos songs broadcasted at stadiums for his “walk-up” during MLB games.

“For those of you who have tuned in to SiriusXM’s Big-Uns countdown recently, your ears may be familiar with a highly explosive and extremely energetic new rock band titled BURNOS. If you haven’t, you are missing out on their fiery new track “WarShip” among other gems.” -Derek Oswald, AltWire Magazine

“Burnos delivers another fully adrenalized song in Warship. It is a perfect display of PURE HARD ROCK which we need more of, no fluff, no core, just down and dirty real rock and roll. We really can’t wait for their album and once again Melissa has left us begging for more. She has really come on strong to the music scene and just amazes me with her talent.” -Music Junkie Press

Burnos' music is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, Google Play, and most digital outlets.

Lyrics

Somebody rattled my cage
The fire’s starting to rage
A riot I’m gonna stage
I feel it coming on

Ain’t no way they can restrain
I broke a link in the chain
And I can do it again
You know I’m feeling strong

Yeah, I just need a release
I want it give me a piece
The animal I unleash
I wanna let it out

My mind is starting to freak
This holding cell has a leak
The fiend is starting to speak
I’m gonna let it shout!

Because the gates flew open wide
A tidal wave of tears I cried
And all the fears I had have died
Got no use for this noose, I am untied
So on this warship I will ride

I’m finished doing my time
Though I’ve committed no crime
These walls I’m starting to climb
I’m barely hanging on

I won’t be stopping tonight
‘Cause I’m already in flight
And if they’re craving a fight
Tell them to bring it on

Yeah, I’ve been building up steam
The pressure’s making me scream
I’m heated to the extreme
I’m really burning up

I wanna cause a big scene
Toss a wrench in the machine
Spark a match in gasoline
I’m gonna blow it up

Because the gates flew open wide
A tidal wave of tears I cried
And all the fears I had have died
Got no use for this noose, I am untied
So on this warship I will ride

I’m breaking out!

This journey’s mine, when it unwinds
You’ll see, don’t have to prove it
The fruit is ripe I’ll sink my teeth into it
Feel so alive and
I wanna to dive in down, down, down, down
Keep that prison suit, I’m breaking out!

Because the gates flew open wide
A tidal wave of tears I’ve cried
And all the fears I had have died
Got no use for this noose, I am untied

Because the gates flew open wide
A tidal wave of tears I’ve cried
And all the fears I had have died
So on this warship I will ride
