Biography

Penetrating a mundane and sterile music climate, Toronto-based band, The Android Meme, unequivocally represents a revolution of social and political awareness. In a world overcome by organized systemic chaos, the lines between truth and political theatrics blur in a steady violent haze. Humanity is forcefully divided and strategically eroded by commercial self-interests, propagating a Western society that is being steered into madness.

Despite this pre-apocalyptic reality, a desperate hope remains in the information war that seeks to confuse and battle for our minds. An awakening is underway and spearheaded by the dynamic and abrasively emotive musical affect of The Android Meme. Creating a sonic synthesis of progressive rock and electronica, The Android Meme passionately explores the psychological and political experience of being human in present times where the medium is not only the message, but truth is ultimately stranger than fiction.

"The Android Meme is a Toronto band with a fresh sound. I'd describe them as electronic-tinged prog rock, accessible and far from boring." Adam Morrison - exploremusic.com

The Android Meme recorded its debut EP at Signal 2 Noise Studios in Toronto with veteran engineer Rob Sanzo who has worked with many successful bands such as Bedouin Soundclash, Joydrop and Sum41, to name a few. The Android Meme is currently recording songs for its upcoming LP with producer/musician Matthew Wagner of Toronto-based band Alpha Galates (EMI). Matthew brings years of experience to the table and has worked with successful bands such as Crystal Castles, The Dunes, Exit to Nowhere, and Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker (U.S.S.).

Combining its infectious sound with a powerful penchant for live performance, The Android Meme accentuates their music with seductive theatrics while creating an intense, hypnotic concert experience.

Lyrics

Polar Rose

Written By: The Android Meme

you built your walls so high
i skinned my hands, just to climb
as i feel you near
you scent doesn't leave my mind
it's forever stained by time

you speak your words as stone
but i see the cracks begin to form
i'll decipher your code
its this enigma i bleed to unfold

your face is all i see
i wake up and i scream
its a nightmare
i don’t want it to end

you plead your virtues blind
but bury yourself deep inside
you corrupt to conform
its this delusion i loathe
to adore a rose so malign
with each petal dripping wine
could this taste be my last
maybe death still worth that

your face is all i see
i wake up and i scream
its a nightmare
i don’t want it to end
though you're so cold
frozen in spite
you twist omissions into cries
surprised how the lies spill from your pride

my polar rose rose rose

you cant escape
and you cant deny
your fears you buried in your-
where is the light i have come to receive
its lost in our divide, divide

your face is all i see
i wake up and i scream
i scream
and i scream
i scream
and i scream

you cant erase this
you cant deny
all of your fears you buried inside
you cant erase this
you cant disguise
all of your fears you bury inside
you buried inside
you buried in pride

my polar rose, rose rose

you cant escape
and you cant deny
all of your fears you buried inside
all of your fears you buried inside
all of your fears you buried in pride

Left Right Parasite

Written By: The Android Meme

you worked yourself nicely in
penetrated through fragile skin
with an hegelian dialectic so hard to ignore
you got us screaming for more
oppositions breed contempt
and just when you think hatred is fed by the left
the right is fed by the same hand
with two sides you never win

deceitful they have
set us on this hate filled path
turning one against the other
sister sister versus brother

the bigger the lie
the more that we believe

the bigger the lie
the more that we believe
no sooner that we cry
surprised how we're deceived
divided by two sides
messed up by two extremes
the left and the right
compete for their belief
of truth and of lies
a left/right parasite

children screaming on the front lines
ignorant to this big lie
hate shit stains down on cultural pride
another left/right
oppositions breed contempt
and just when you think hatred is fed by the left
the right is fed by the same hand
with two sides you never win

deceitful they have
set us on this hate filled path
turning one against the other
sister sister versus brother
countries made to rise and fall
one guess who's behind it all
a struggle manufactured to conceive
a population forever in their need

the bigger the lie
the more that we believe
no sooner that we cry
surprised how we're deceived
the left and the right
compete for their belief
of truth and of lies
a left right parasite

with one belief
they fool us all
pit us against each other
watch us fall

left right left right left right left

if there’s something, that’s left to say
to you my dear, before you go your way
its wake up now, its far too late
to think in circles, to waste away
don’t waste away
don’t waste away

sound asleep, so lost and oblivious
we've washed our hands and turned a blind eye
to a world, that we have watched come undone
while so complicit in its demise

whisper no, its far too late
to think in circles
to waste away
dream for me, its not too late
to dream a future
and escape

don’t waste away

our reflections speak their mind
of a place we have left behind
we bury conscience in consumer life
while so complicit in our demise

whisper no, its far too late
to think in circles
to waste away
dream for me, its not too late
to dream a future
and escape

signs of a new world,
an order, are rising
take up your armor, your shield
and save me

if there’s something, that’s left to say
to you my dear, before you go your way
its wake up now, its far too late
to think in circles, to waste away
don’t waste away
don’t waste away
