Ruin Your Youth

by Grand Theft Audio

People tend to believe bands know what the fuck they are doing - but let me tell you, they don’t. It's just an urge. For us, the whole GTA story was exactly that - something brilliant from the past urging us to do something more, so after our epic 20 year hiatus, we're back and ready to party!

Hi All, We are The Red Lite District, and this is one of the tracks from our fifth EP, Peephole. This track is literally about going mental during lockdown, I think we have all felt a bit deranged lately. But dont take the advice we give you in this track seriously.

My Toxic Heart - Our bubblegum pop anthem that would make All Time Low weep, blink-182 proud and Enter Shikari laugh at. This is the 100th time we’ve rewritten this song and we vow if this song goes viral, we’ll all quit music to become shepherds.

Phantom Pain

I wanted to write something that was honest to my own experiences, while at the same time relatable. You can be overwhelmed by a wave of conflicting emotions when a relationship ends — and that love doesn’t immediately disappear. It’s painful and disorienting. - Matt Warmuth

This song is my second single that's been released. The track tells the story of two strangers who randomly fall for each other. Although awkward at first they take a chance with one another and fall madly in love. The song represents the feeling of living in the moment and taking chances at life!
