The Greatest Night(2009)
A Modern Love Story EP(2007)



Where do you start? How about the anthemic power of Anberlin mixed with the driving emotion of Armor for Sleep? Sound good? Add a pinch of melodic metal and a twist of 90s alternative and you've got quite the potent cocktail.

As their name suggests, A Modern Love Story offers an updated take on whats quickly becoming a classic sound. Combining elements of rock, pop, and punk with the occasional melodic precision evident in the best modern metal bands, AMLS will win you over with songs that seem simple at first but that quickly find their way into your heart and head.

With so many bands floating around in the modern rock world, it's hard to stand out‚ of course, this isn't a problem for AMLS. These four best friends prove on The Greatest Night that they are capable of everything; devastating melodies, soaring choruses, unforgettable lyrics, and an attention to musical detail that is sorely missed in todays music scene. Emerging out of the Wisconsin/Illinois music scene in 2005, A Modern Love Story has been fighting the good fight for years. Playing shitty bars throughout Chicago land and the Midwest helped earn the boys their stripes‚ and quite a rabid fan base. It also gave them the opportunity to hone their aggressive, turbulent sound. Critics often talk about bands growing up and AMLS is no different, they just didn't need three records and four lineup changes to do it.

So, in the end, why the hell should you care about A Modern Love Story? I guess there's no other reason than the music. Faces come and go constantly in the music world but sincerity and the ability to relate seem to be what truly elevates the men from the boys. So maybe take a chance on some guys that have already grown up, that know where you've been and want to share what they've discovered. Some people choose painting or photography or words to translate experience into wisdom. AMLS crafts hooks and beats, wit and rhythms that will move your body and elevate your emotions. And let's be honest, will you be able to recall the intricacies of the Mona Lisa or the chorus of your favorite song first? That's what I thought.
