Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead, and Nothing Is Bleeding is the debut album by Douglasville, GA's The Chariot. It was recorded completely live and overdub-free (as well as never being mastered), giving the album a very raw sound.[1]

Track listing[edit]

  1. "Before There Was Atlanta, There Was Douglasville" – 2:15
  2. "Someday, in the Event That Mankind Actually Figures Out What it is That This World Revolves Around, Thousands of People are Going to Be Shocked and Perplexed to Find Out it Was Not Them. Sometimes, This Includes Me." – 1:58
  3. "Dialogue With a Question Mark" – 2:11
  4. "Die Interviewer (I am Only Speaking in German)" – 2:40
  5. "And Then, Came Then" – 5:19
  6. "The Company, the Comfort, the Grave" – 2:26
  7. "The Bullet Never Lies, and Time Will Prove All Things (An Allegory of Unfaithful Jerusalem)" – 2:57
  8. "Yellow Dress: Locked Knees" – 1:59
  9. "If Wishes Were Horses, More Beggars Would Ride Them" – 3:09
  10. "Good Night My Lady, and a Forever Farewell" – 2:59

The song "Someday, in the Event That Mankind Actually Figures Out What it is That This World Revolves Around, Thousands of People are Going to Be Shocked and Perplexed to Find Out it Was Not Them. Sometimes, This Includes Me." (track 2) is currently the 13th longest song title, with 38 words.

The sampler at the end of Track 2 was a voicemail left on producer Matt Goldman's cell phone while he and the band were on a lunch break from recording.

When reversed, the talking at the end of Track 7 is Josh Scogin heard saying "That has to be a keeper 'cause I was mooning everybody."

Credits[edit]

  • Josh Scogin - vocals
  • Keller Harbin - guitar, vocals
  • Joshua Beiser- bass
  • Tony Medina- guitar
  • Jeff Carter - drums
  • Bradley Hathaway - backup vocals (track 4)

This was Tony Medina and Jeff Carter's only appearance on a Chariot album (Not including the Goldman Demo)

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The CD lyric booklet includes the following statement by the band: This album was recorded live in a studio setting and no computers were used in the manipulation of our music. Everything that you hear was played by human beings, and was not copy/pasted by computers. That is why it sounds a little raw and uncoventional. Technology is a convenience, and it is okay to be used in moderation, but for the sake of the lost authentic sound of rock and roll, we decided to go the route of our forefathers and get it all in one take as best as we could. We believe that sweat and practice should persevere over the convenience of a computer. We believe that although this album may not be one hundred percent tight and perfect in every way (like you are used to) it will be authentic, and therefore understood. At least that is our hope. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for your support. We hope this album brings joy to your heart. -The Chariot
