  • Hard copy CD ~ "Best Of" Union Pulse ~ final 5 copies
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Designed and assembled by the band themselves, this limited pressing of 400 discs has been distributed to family and friends as well as each of the bandmates' solo shows following the band's eventual break-up. Only 15 copies remain, so the former frontman of Union Pulse is personally making them available from his new headquarters in New York City, where he is pursuing a solo career. Each copy comes with two all-weather stickers featuring the logo of his new singer-songwriter campaign under his own name, James Tristan Redding. An autograph is available upon request, at no extra charge, but be advised that requires first removing the shrink-wrap. An autographed CD will therefor arrive with no shrink wrap.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ten Year Anniversary via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

From the album "Between Love and Addiction"


Some evenings I can't go to sleep, tired as I am
When close my eyes and drift, relax and release
I need antacids and kisses, lullabies and lilacs
Home once shadowed every footstep I took, now home is her hand

It was over before it began

There's a girl down in texas whose eyes pierce and words fumble
It's the cutest combination, until I picture her passion
Deadly, potent, sexy as hell: snapshot of this unlikely angel
Tempting straight through a teardrop, salty and warm

It was over before it began

The days getting shorter, her patience is thin
The nights getting longer, the world closing in
The moonlight is laughing, it's harder to smile
Today's almost over, just a little while
We need something stronger to open our eyes
We need something smarter make us feel wise
I want you to feel like there's hope for you yet
Deserve something better and I wish you'd let
Let me be your drug
