Together as a group for just over four years, Goodbye Glory has accomplished more in their short career than most bands dream of accomplishing in a lifetime. The band formed in December 2003, when Adam Staviss met Dante Berardi Jr. while working at a local Toronto bar. After writing together on a few occasions, the two decided to begin a band. The pair then began scouting new members. Through a close friend, Dante was introduced to Jan-Michael Rossi who stepped in on bass and turned to long time best-friend Kevin Costa for lead vocals. The band revisited their existing material and finished the songs that they would begin performing around the Toronto circuit.

Goodbye Glory got the opportunity to play at legendary Toronto rock club, The Elmocambo and anxiously prepared for their first real show. Goodbye Glory then entered a Supernova Promotions battle of the bands contest and easily took first place. They received free recording time at Machinehead Studio to record a demo, and got to open up for Gob at the Docks in November 2004. The demo was good enough to turn a few heads and expand the band's fan base. As their confidence grew, the group played a string of shows around Toronto at great venues like, The Opera House, The Reverb, The Docks, Club 279, The Horseshoe Tavern, and many more. By the end of 2005 the band had almost played every major venue in Toronto.

After signing a small record contract with a local indie label, the group worked through pre-production with their label and the likes of Juno Award Winner Gavin Brown (Billy Talent, Three Days Grace, Thornley).

In August 2005 the band settled into Iguana Recording Studio to record their debut album. With the help of Canadian Rock icon Jag Tanna (I Mother Earth) the band recorded a sonically perfect album that they were all more than satisfied with. With their record complete, Goodbye Glory continued to move forward; building a solid foundation for a long career in the music industry by playing as many shows as they possibly could.

After selling out the Opera House for their release party in June 2006, the band was invited as one of the top 4 Canadian acts to play at the prestigious Popkomm Festival in Berlin, Germany. The band made the trek across the Atlantic, where they made a slew of new friends and fans, represented Canada with a smile on their face, and came back more determined then ever.

Goodbye Glory’s determination and persistence to be heard is what allowed this group the opportunity to work with some of the industry's leading professionals and advance to where they are today. Backed by the best the industry has to offer along with Goodbye Glory’s compelling desire to excel in the music industry, the group will not stop moving forward. Over obstacles and negativity the group thrives on tough times and always perseveres!
