"Making The Most" - 2010



Uplift, the staple of the Toronto Hardcore scene, and flagship band for the positive movement in heavy music across Canada, this melodic hardcore band will stop at nothing to get it's message across. While most newer hardcore bands might still struggle to develop their perspectives on important things such as the community, the outside world, politics and personal life, Uplift has taken the time and accrued the experiences necessary to flesh out a distinct and refreshing take on these ideas. Drawing from a diverse set of influences and life experiences, lyricists James and Jordy collaborate in a balanced and dynamic way, to express the important message at the core of Uplift's music - that being a positive band doesn't mean pulling any sort of wool over the eyes. Uplift is about motivation, ambition and optimism even in the face of the hardest adversities. Rather than being lumped in one flowery mold Uplift simply takes the harsh reality of life on the road and at home and gives it a positive spin, not ignoring the negative but enhancing the positive. Relentless touring, self booking, self promoting and self financing, Uplift truely defines the 2000's version of a Do It Yourself band.

"Making The Most" is this band's latest offering. 5 hard hitting, fast and passionate tracks about a year of the band's combined life, ending with the title track about keeping the faith in the darkest of times. Though a force to be reckoned with on the album, the band truely shines in it's energetic and passionate live performance. Check them out when they come to your town and you'll see what it's all about.
