AM Glory is putting the rock and roll back in rock and roll. With a new EP recorded mostly live off the floor, with no auto-tune or fancy pro-tools editing, this young band is out to prove that rock music can be real, and accessible at the same time.

Biography

AM Glory has to get the award for most determined band in the world.

Surviving rip-off managers, grueling tours, and even a severed finger, the band has developed a name as one of the hardest working bands in Canada, with a high-energy live show that has found them touring with some of the biggest acts in the country, kept them working steadily for 5 years, and put them in a perfect position to break out as a major international band.

Formed in 2004 in Winnipeg under the name Accepting Silence, the band members Kyle Meyer (guitar/lead.vocal), brother Jesse Meyer (bass/vocal) and drummer Jay Mymryk played their first show only three weeks after their first jam – in Minnesota. After the gig, their place to stay and their payment were nowhere to be found, and hours later they found themselves lost, and slept in an abandoned cabin in the woods.

Instead of being discouraged, they went on to work harder and released a debut EP “Soma” which sold almost 2000 units, an impressive debut for a new band on Canada. They went on to tour extensively in 2005, two cross-Canada tours and two Western Canadian tours, sharing the stage with a number of major Canadian acts.

In 2007 they scored a major coup by recording their next EP “Under This Sky” with legendary punk rock producer Jason Livermore in his studio in Fort Collins, Colorado. Livermore is responsible for the success of bands such as Rise Against, The Ataris and Comeback Kid.

They got off to a bad start with Livermore, however. Upon arriving at the studio they discovered that their then-manager had stolen all the money meant to go to the studio as a deposit ($8,000 USD). As Jay says “That's just awkward.” No kidding. Luckily Livermore liked working with the band so much he let them work out other arrangements.

Around this time they attracted the attention of Glen Willows of BCM management, who has 4 major label signings to his credit, and was so blown away with their new songs Dance All Night and R.O.C.K. that he immediately signed them to a management deal and started up a massive campaign to shop them to labels in the U.S. and Canada. “Glen just instantly got what we were doing” says Jesse.

With things in full gear, fate struck again and Kyle lost half of the ring finger on his right hand in a run-in with a power saw (note to guitar players: don’t use power saws). But it only slowed him down temporarily – and with determination and lots of practice he’s now back at full shredding capability.

From weathering these kinds of storms to playing grueling tours like the one that saw them doing 100 shows in 90 days, this is a band that’s built to last and isn’t going away.

As Kyle says “while other bands work on their hair, we work on our songs.”

2010 saw AMG back in the studio to record their new ep "Sixgun." Recorded mostly live off the floor, with no auto-tune or studio tricks, this album captures simple rock music the way it's meant to be. "Sixgun" will be released on iTunes November 23, 2010!

Lyrics

Dance All Night

Written By: AM Glory

I put a record on, you skip the needle to your favorite song
(baby baby, won't you take me on, baby baby won't you take me on)
Love lies beyond the words
I'm head over heels and you're my favorite girl
(baby baby won't you take me on, baby baby won't you take me on)

Let's hit the town, see the sights, hear the sounds, take in a show
Hit the floor, lose control, come on, LET'S GO!

Come close, so close

We'll dance all night
We've waited all our lives
It feels so right
We'll dance all night
Come close, so we can let this love inside

I keep the music on
You forget the words, but it's your favorite song
(baby baby put your best dress on, baby baby put your best dress on)
Love's eyes are watching us
From overhead so we won't mess this up
(baby baby put your best dress on, baby baby let's get it on)

It's so late, but it's okay maybe we will catch the next train, what do you say baby?

Come close, so close

(Chorus)

I love the way you are
Dancing like you've never danced before
So - come close, so close
So we can...

(Chorus)

R.O.C.K.

Written By: AM Glory

it takes the night to try
to get up and go
it takes a long long time of being alone
ive waited way too long
it takes the last call
to turn you around
it takes so so long to say even a sound
can we try again/

lets r.o.c.k. baby tonight
lets strike this match and light up the sky
turn up the radio
lets r.o.c.k. baby tonight
lets take this city and leave it behind
turn up the radio
come on little sweet thing lets paint the town tonight/

you know the last time i couldnt say
the devil on my shoulder had to get in the way
and ive waited way too long
so i wont wait this time
ill take this chance and let it ride
can we try again/

lets r.o.c.k. baby tonight
lets strike this match and light up the sky
turn up the radio
lets r.o.c.k. baby tonight
lets take this city and leave it behind
turn up the radio
come on little sweet thing lets paint the town tonight/
tonight, lets paint this town tonight
tonight, lets paint this town tonight

Hit the Lights

Written By: AM Glory

hit the lights lets go
im headed home
i know youll be ok
i hope youll let me go
theres no need for broken hearts today/
lets say we stay
where we are
where will we all go

Going Nowhere

Written By: AM Glory

Here we go again, wishing the sun would shine,
I'll keep my eyes peeled tonight,
Im fighting sleep with bright lights, I'm counting sheep with red eyes
My hands are shaking so you know I'm on the last leg of this road
To get to where we're going, come on and sing along

We're going nowhere

Here I go again, wishing the stars would light,
The way on highways tonight,
Running on old hopes and dreams, running on stolen gasoline
These hands are shaking at the wheel, these hands can beg, borrow and steal
To get to where we're going, come on and sing along

We're going nowhere

We're lost...out somewhere,
We'll never tell if we are there
So let's go everywhere
We know, we don't care
