about

Le Cos Los Angeles, California

Modern day murder ballad revivalists Le Cos take the traditional folk songwriting form and infused it with a punk, gospel and 60’s girl group music to create a sound that is disarmingly catchy and upbeat despite the dark themes. The eight-piece ensemble has been described by De La Vie TV as “the best band you’ve never heard of” with “one of the best live shows that will leave you watching in awe.” ... more

Track Name: Death Is My Lover
Death Is My Lover

It's been a long long day
But he's coming home

It's been a long long day
But he's coming home

He shakes them like a rattlesnake
Death's been shaking my bones

It's been a long long way
But he's coming home

It's been a long long way
But he's coming home

He shakes them like a rattlesnake
Death's been shaking my bones

(Death is my lover)

Death is the lover that I want tonight
Track Name: Leeches
Leeches

The terror is mounting
The devil is drawing near
A parade of fire
Illuminates the paths we fear

We sat watching boxes
Assemble into themselves
We weighed in on gravity
And into the darkness we fell

The weight of your hand
Hangs heavier than a crown
Because I can't compete
With the leeches lying in your pond

The weight of your hand
Hangs heavier than a crown
Because I can't compete
With the leeches lying in your pond
Track Name: When The Full Moon Comes Out
When The Full Moon Comes Out

The warmth starts arising
From my itching skin
And my body starts to tremble
Like a leaf in the wind

When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out

The gleam is shining
Off the whites of my canines
Sharpened bone to tear out
All the terror inside

When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out

Babe
Avoid the dark
Cuz my bite is much worse than my bark

I'm just a shady shapeshifter
Howling in the wind
No freak is my foe
Nobody normal is my friend

When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out

Through these sinful streets I prowl
For a luscious lady
To slake my thirst for lust
My virgin offer to Phoebe

When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out
When the Full Moon Comes Out

Babe
Avoid the dark
Cuz my bite is much worse than my bark

Babe
You ain't no silver bullet

When the Full Moon Comes Out
Track Name: 10 Crows
If sidewalk cracks could kill/Then I'd press them with my heels
If I could command black crows to caw/A murder of shadows like you never saw
Will drag you
Down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay
Down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay
They'll drag you down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay

And there you'll stay
A cold carcass

Now I can drink and never get drunk
And you've had your fun at the young ladies' cost
But once I introduce Nancy Whiskey to you
I'll find you the next morn on the floor
With your body blue
She'll lead you

Down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay
Down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay
She'll lead you down to the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay

And there you'll stay
A cold carcass

One crow for sorrow
Two crows for mirth
Three crows for a wedding
Four crows for a birth
Five crows for silver
And six crows for gold
Seven crows for a secret not to be told
Eight crows for heaven
Nine crows for hell
Ten crows for the devil
Satan's own self

Down with the dead dead
Down with the dead men you'll lay
And there you'll stay
A cold carcass
Track Name: Desiree
Desiree

The moon was full
Just like the lips of Desiree
The trees swayed
Just like the hips of Desiree

On that fateful night
My lovely Desi was struck down

The clouds screamed
Just like the soul of Desiree
To all the Gods I'd prayed
For a girl like Desiree

But one night the devil came
And took my lovely angel away

It was too late
When I first found my Desiree
But I'd find a way
To revive my Desiree

With a little ingenuity
And a sacrifice so bold

So you can see
Please take my eyes sweet Desiree
So you can breathe
Please take my heart sweet Desiree

So you can sleep
Please take my dreams sweet Desiree
So you can weep
Please take my tears sweet Desiree

Then I sewed my skin up tight
And left the pain of this earthly world

I'd die a thousand deaths
So she could live one minute more
