about

Philly indie rockers Stellarscope come out swinging with their latest album standing in the shadow of you ghost. Pain, loss, and fear served over gritty rock n roll.

"“Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost offers audiences an intense array of explicitly human ideas, feelings and soundscapes. Beginning with the undeniably hard hitting Don’t Belong, the album is easily as heavy as it is emotional.” -Stereo Stickman

“Stellarscope fuses rock, post-punk and neo-psychedelia all while maintaining strong melodic sensibilities for an exciting musical experience that will please underground niche audiences and invite new alt-audiences looking for something edgier and more direct than typical poetic, alt-rock. Stellarscope has found their forte in songs like “Only Strangers Now” that pulse to your core, rip solos out like metal on glass and deliver plenty of direct, raw angst to chew on.”- Indie Spoonful

Soundtrack for a rainy night: Standing in the Shadow of your Ghost ” The gothic brooding of Tom Lugo’s voice and the hypnotic drums of Bob Forman create an almost beautiful form of revelation.” - Sphere Music

“On “Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost” Stellarscope sculpts a universe whose undeniable appeal is with its uncertain path forward.” -Skope Mag

-“Today there are the pop songs of the mainstream radio that entertain the masses but have no real soul. In the indie underground, there still exist heartfelt and edgy music that puts all the emotions of the songwriter right in the speakers for everyone to feel. This is the music that truly resonates with real fans of music. These songs are remembered long after they have their 15 minutes of fame. Our new friends Stellarscope have been carrying the torch for quite a while and still put it all on the table.”- Indie Band Guru

Track Name: don't belong
Don’t belong
Lyrics by: Tom Lugo

My
you caught my eyes
Now space and time
Crumble with the skies

Why won’t you talk to me?
Talk to me

No, I don’t belong
What have I done wrong?
My head is hanging low
I am so guidable
What have I done wrong?

Time
Keeps on rushing by
Let’s pretend its fine
Live onto these lies
Why won’t you talk to me?
Talk to me

No, I don’t belong
What have I done wrong?
My head is hanging low
I am so guidable
What have I done wrong?
Track Name: capsized
Capsized
Lyrics by: Tom Lugo

Time to mourn what we have lost
Crashing again
It’s all about to change

Persistent thoughts, what have we done
Our whole world will come undone
We’re the only ones to blame
So please don’t act like it’s OK

Beat the drum and grab your guns
Need more drugs to make us numb
What have we done?

Can’t come to terms with the outcome
The guilt and shame
The world’s gone insane
Track Name: falling
Falling
Lyrics by: Tom Lugo

Stood at the crossroads waiting for you
here you are, don’t know what to do
Is it fate that brought you here?
Is it another river of tears?
The more we are willing to forgo
The farther down the rabbit hole we go

All those things we ought to say
Not allowing words to get in the way
Of what is pure, what we have right here
Whispered in silence softly to your ears

The more we are willing to forgo
The farther down the rabbit hole we go

Falling into the web we cannot escape
Seeing the signs, all around, we cannot tempt faith
What this future holds-nobody really knows
Give room to grow and see where it goes

The more we are willing to forgo
The farther down the rabbit hole we go
Track Name: only strangers now
Only strangers now
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

You said you wanted this to end
You say that we could still be friends
But we’re only strangers now

So now we play the game
Tonight with the devil dance
There is now other way but down

It was going well then it all went to hell
It was going well then it all went to hell

You said you wanted some more space
You said I’d never be replaced
But we’re only strangers now

It doesn’t matter anyway
Don’t want to live another day
There is now other way but down

It was going well then it all went to hell
It was going well then it all went to hell

Damn I hate that you’re no longer mine
Now I’m contemplating suicide
To my fate I cannot resign

You said you wanted this to end
You say that we could still be friends
But we’re only strangers now

So now we play the game
Tonight with the devil dance
There is now other way but down

It was going well then it all went to hell
It was going well then it all went to hell

Damn I hate that you’re no longer mine
Now I’m contemplating suicide
To my fate I cannot resign
Track Name: all for you
All for you
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

Sitting in the darkness drowning in tears for you
For you, I only want to be with you
Shaded in the sadness of losing you
I only want to be with you
It really hurts to dread the end of you and me
I can’t pretend
You’re my best friend
I did it all for you
I did it all for you
I did it all for you

Going mad
replaying
Memories of you
For you
I only what to be with you
Stare into the void left because of you
I only want to be with you
It really hurts to dread the end of you and me
I can’t pretend
You’re my best friend
I did it all for you
I did it all for you
I did it all for you
Track Name: so long
So long
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

This party’s over
It’s time to go
Thought it’d be forever
Little did I know
That all we have is what’s left
Hellos and goodbyes
Can’t believe in forever
‘cause forever is a lie

So long
Don’t mind being alone
Don’t mind it at all
So leave
So long
Don’t mind being alone
Don’t mind it at all
So leave
Track Name: you feel it too
You feel it too
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

She lost her perspective
Everything’s so unclear
Waiting for something
That’ll never appear
The wait drives her crazy
Man, it’s been so long
She lost all her hope then he came along

The night is still young
Let’s paint the red
You know I’m not the right one
Tonight we’ll end up in bed
Woo ooo
You know you feel it too
Woo ooo
You know you feel it too
Track Name: no reason why
No reason why
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

Time to let go
Of you I know
But it’s so hard
When the heart hopes

For no reason why
You want me out of your life

See where you’re headed
And it’s not with me
I can’t change your mind
So I’ll set you free

For no reason why
You want me out of your life
Track Name: this is how it ends
This is how it ends
Lyrics by Tom Lugo

Say goodbye to all that you hold dear
The darkness reigns, it will all disappear
Millions of sheep worship at his feet
The puppeteer ignited hatred for greed

It’s the collapse, to hell we descend
Destruction of it all, this is how it ends

To hell we descend
This is how it ends
To hell we descend
This is how it ends

The realization of our darkest fears
And the truth no one wanted to hear
To surface came what hid underneath
Now there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth

It’s the collapse, to hell we descend
Destruction of it all, this is how it ends

To hell we descend
This is how it ends
To hell we descend
This is how it ends
