Biography

Among the multitude of different genres of rock bands in our culture today, a band must work extremely hard to stand out. Harmony of Lies has certainly worked hard for everything they have achieved over the past five years. Hailing from Chicago, Harmony of Lies puts a modern electronic edge to vintage overdrive, while adding a creative twist that is a style all their own. With a certain spark of timeless melody coupled with an electric atmosphere, their music successfully reaches a point above other indie rock projects. Their intense live show works well with crowds in any venue regardless of the size.

Harmony of Lies began when singer / song writer Brent Leitner took to the electronic sound after experimenting first with several other side projects. Over the years the band has worked with several talented musicians, until recently achieving their line up as it stands today. Front man Brent Leitner leads the band while his brother and lead guitar player Troy sings back up. With guitarist Dave Grey keeping rhythm, bass player Nate Kinney and the newly added drummer Dan Wind the group continues to find new ways to reinvent their musical vision.

Harmony of Lies has certainly worked hard throughout the last five years. They have played all over the college circuit, toured the US from Indiana to California having shared the stage with nationals like Wes Borlan and Tila Tequila. Keeping a firm grip on the Midwest they continue to support and headline events at popular Chicagland clubs like The Double Door, Logans Square Auditorium, The Elbo Room, The Pearl Room, Maryr's and Ottos Night Club.

When the band began recording their first full-length album they paired up with Chicago area producer Matt Mercado (Daisy Chain and Pivot Man). The band was already beginning to achieve momentum as their previously recorded single had found its way onto the soundtrack of the motion picture, “The Thirsting,” produced by Curtis Johnson (Destiny’s Child/Grammy award winner) and George Langis (Smashing Pumpkins, Mudvayne, and Material Issue).

With continued support from their fans, media and industry professionals, Harmony of Lies continues to expand their fan base while writing music and connecting with people on their own terms.

Lyrics

Find Another Way

Written By: Brent Leitner

his mile has met the stone it needs
Forever? Well I can't say
The Desire to find ultimate relief
It feels like home but we can't stay

It feels like summer but the frost reminds me
That Summer is gone before you know

I found in you no need
To find Another way
Its up to you now don't be late
Just say the words you want
to say them anyways
Now stand your ground
don't be betrayed

When they cry out just don't believe them
You've done your best to let them know
Now with a smile you can deceive them
They say they care but it don't show

It feels like summer but the frost reminds me
That Summer is gone before you know

I found in you no need
To find another way
Its up to you now don't be late
Just say the words you want
to say them anyways
Now stand your ground
don't be betrayed

Its getting colder now against the wind
I feel the frost and it reminds me of something

Tears Today

Written By: Brent Leitner

Its been written down
This occasion you once frowned upon
Its darker than hell
And I can't find a light to turn on
The masterpiece on the wall
Has been painted over
Now hidden from all

If I witness tears today
A scar called you is all that remains

You've broken the pen
That brought you the love that you dread
The heart in your chest
Aches from the times its been bled
Now I can relate to where you are
It wonders behind until your in to far

If I witness tears today
A scar called you is all that remains
You can write down all you've made
Stand up sit down its come down to this

Stories Expire

Written By: Brent Leitner

I found out my story expired That I was to blame
No candles were lit on the morning
We were caught in the rain
The art in the words that were spoken
Would break through these savage walls
A feeling of warm distruction
Would ring through the air as we walked

Now that you're out beneath the storm.
I hope you can take it
You Tried to run but lost your way
Now you'll never make it

Next to the water you stumbled Next to the stone
I reached out but nothing could save you You'd fallen alone
I turned and you cried out a whisper
You said that you'd mark the day
I walked from the scene with no anger
I tasted the blood of your pain.

Now that you're out beneath the storm.
I hope you can take it
You Tried to run but lost your way
Now you'll never make it.

Breaking

Written By: Brent M. Leitner

Closing my eyes shut
I feel your gazing upon me
Taking away my
Will left for fighting

Breaking through my defense
To keep this peace alive
Breaking through all feelings
To help us each survive

The touch from your words
Hold me securly
I'm Wrapped in your being
and broken by the meaning

Each thought is buried by more thoughts to come
How could you ever understand?
Its me that is under control and still lost and
I’ll be the one who is left stranded

How Can I?

Written By: Brent M Leitner

A verse:
Its always one thing left unsolved
There's never room to get involved
Now that your stuck down on your knees
Grant me this and let me ask you please

B verse:
Is there any room to help?
Are their ways that I can't see?
Would these beliefs catch you when you fall?
What is wrong why don't you answer me?

Chorus:
How can I erase the times you shared with me?
Nothing can replace how you were there for me
I will always love the way you cared for me
But I see troubled lights in your eyes

A verse 2:
So I guess we just carry on
You've stated clearly that we're capable
I don't believe in hopes and dreams
No one can tell me exactly what they mean

Chorus:
How can I erase the times you share with me?
Nothing can replace how you are there for me
I will always love the way you care for me
But I see troubled lights in your eyes

Bridge:
How can I see the past the way you looked at things?
I found out so much that I can barely see.
I'm holding something precious and I won't let go.
The science of emotion I will never know.

Chorus:
How can I erase the times you share with me?
Nothing can replace how you are there for me
I will always love the way you care for me
But I see troubled lights in your eyes
