My Glorious is an Alternative Rock trio from Vienna, consisting of singer/guitarist Sami Goodenough (UK) and the twins Gregor Sailer (AT) on bass and Paul Sailer (AT) on drums. Since they started out in 2008, My Glorious have performed in Austria, Germany, Bosnia, Croatia, the UK, Israel, Palestine and have toured the US five times.
Their debut EP "Leper" (2008) conquered the college radio charts throughout the US. Some Higlights of the past are supportslots for Delirious?, Revolverheld, Jupiter Jones, Jars of Clay and a bombthreat against the band.
In Febuary 2010 their current album “Home Is Where The Heart Breaks” was released in Europe and the US. 2011 this album won the International
Independent Music Award, which is the most important award in Indiemusic.
The album also generated such buzz in the new media, that Starproducer Sylvia Massy (Prince, Tool, System of a Down...) became aware of My Glorious and offered to produce their next album.
From December 2010 to Febuary 2011 the band has been working on the upcoming Release "Inside my head is a scary place" in California with Sylvia. The
album was released on Sept 30th in the EU and will be released in the US in Spring 2012.
The sound of the band has been described as Coldplay meets Foo Fighters and represents groove based indie rock with passsionate melodies. The lyrics dig deep below the surface and are an „honest attempt to understand life“.
“My Glorious play music in a crowded space, I can’t even guess the number of bands I receive details from who play this style of indie rock and the vast majority sound like a poor copy of U2, if that isn’t an oxymoron in itself. So it was with a rapidly beating heart, not in a good way, that I listened to the tracks that Astrid (PR) had pointed me towards, but my fears were dispelled immediately.
What makes for a good sounding band? If there was a formula I guess everyone would sound the same, but one essential ingredient has to be passion, mixed with creativity and this comes in shovel loads from My Glorious…”
