***MORNING GLORY first became the spark of an idea back in 2001 when EZRA KIRE (LEFTOVER CRACK, CHOKING VICTIM, INDK) took time off from touring and started to write and record some songs in his NYC apartment. Built on the backbone of ska, punk, crust, metal, much like his other work, the songs Ezra wrote for Morning Glory served as an outlet for the expanded spectrum of his songwriting. Though, with all the other bands and endless touring, Morning Glory never evolved very far from its fledgling stages. Until now. Armed with years of new material, Ezra decided to finally give Morning Glory the attention it deserved, regrouping the live band with a new line up including EARLY GATES on drums, “METAL” CHRIS on bass, SHAWN GARDINER and ADAM SCHRAGER on guitar, and spending months in the studio under the production of JESSE CANNON (The Menzingers, Saves the Day). The result is their debut Fat Wreck release, as well as their first studio full-length, Poets Were My Heroes. This epic album is a sonic kaleidoscope of punk noise melding strings, horns, choirs, pianos and organs over a web of distorted guitars and marching, single kick pedal drums. It is both grand and elaborate, with each song evoking a different mood and style, challenging the musicianship of even the most dexterous players, while still maintaining its punk-inspired simplicity and catchy anthemic sound throughout. Beyond the music itself, the message of the songs on Poets Were My Heroes differential themselves from the standard politi-kill crust punk acts, embracing a more positive outlook of unity in diversity. With the release of Poets, Morning Glory are finally poised to deliver on nearly a decade of anticipation and assume their rightful position as one of the most lauded and intriguing bands inside and out of the ska/punk genre.
