Morning Glory
Morning Glory
M-Glory is a group of New York City musicians who came together in the interest of making music fun for themselves again. With roots deep in the politi-kil punk scene of the Lower East Side and Brooklyn, MG's lyrical content never strays far from the things they see as axiom, tho it tends to be more personal than other bands and projects they've been in over the years.

The music is heavy and melodic and meant to be played out doors under the sun. Big anthemic choruses and sped up verses bring it somewhere in between early Oasis and The Clash (or so it's been heard), yet they defy and abhor labels, preferring just to write what they hear in their collective head, calling music making an exorcism of the insomnia demons. Playing for the despondent, kids who lost their families or come from broken homes, and those who are destitute or trying to exit a bad situation, popularity and commercial success mean nothing to MGlory. (Recently they turned down a deal with a record label because they were told the songs were too long. Ezra said "songs are as long as they need to be and we're not going to change em just so we can be on a big fuckin record label.")

If even just one kid out there somewhere hears the music and makes it thru another day, or gets thru life in a shit town where everything sucks and he's tormented and outcast for being gay, or just wearing freaky black clothing, Mglory will have done it's job.

The newest record due for release in the upcoming winter/spring occasionally has an accompanying orchestra, or string quartet, and is more piano driven than previous material they've tracked. While staying true to their punk/squatter ethics the band is determined not to be pigeon-holed or labeled, and generally hopes the music will speak for itself. A type of music they're calling "Revolution Rock". (But bearing in mind the only war worth winning is the war within... it's a revolution of the heart and of the mind.) Keeping it dance-able and fun, all thanks is given from the band to the fans, whom they recognize as the real breath and soul of the group. Which makes their job of coming together to make music fun again a pleasure indeed. With this band the audience really IS a part of the music. Without the fans this band would not be happening. M-Glory is a concept that belongs to the fans... and everyone knows it.

Revolution Rock On!
Dead City Riot
Dead City Riot
Dead City Riot formed at the end of December 2011. In January 2012 they went on tour, and recorded a 7 song EP. After revising their lineup, they toured with Morning Glory in the summer of 2012. They are writing new songs and recording a new record in December. With more US tours in the works, the band uses their DIY ethics to push their blended style of Hardcore Punk and Skacore.
Run with the Hunted
Run with the Hunted
Run with the Hunted is five people trying to understand the world around them; five people trying to understand themselves through each other; five people channeling their hopes, fears and struggles into the music that makes sense to them - desperate, emotionally exhausting, Hardcore.

Run with the Hunted architect songs founded around the heaviness and technicality of bands like Indecision and Turmoil intermixed with strong noisy flourishes akin to Botch or Catharsis. The end result is anything but the typical aping of either niched genre - it’s a powerful combination of both without the shortcomings of either and a unique style all it’s own.

Lyrically, the band explores political and personal subject matter in equal parts but with the same introspective angle and emotional vulnerability the band has become known for. Run with the Hunted is defining what being a hardcore band in 2010 means for themselves. After two ep's, Find Your Way Out on Rebuild Records (2007) and Destroy All Calendars on Glory Kid Records (2009) and three years of touring Run with the Hunted has finally found it's home with Panic Records and is preparing to release their debut LP to be released this Fall.
