AM Taxi Announces Debut Album & Spring Tour Dates

AM Taxi— so-called because they’re all about moving across the U.S. towards their destination—
gets ready to hit the road…hard. The guys will be touring in support of Spill Canvas late Spring with
additional dates for this Summer’s Warped Tour, starting June 24 through August 15. AM Taxi are
one of the few groups booked for the entire prestigious concert series prior to releasing an album.
They’ve already been out on the road with the likes of Sum 41 and The Ataris, while opening for
The Offspring at Summerfest in Milwaukee, so they’re more than up for the task.

“Our goal is to take that 45 or 60 minutes and let people get away for a little bit,” says lead singer
and guitarist Adam Krier, “maybe even convert some of ‘em to AM Taxi fans. And, if they dig
what we’re doing, maybe they’ll check out some of the stuff that influenced us.”

Take one listen to AM Taxi’s Virgin records debut, We Don’t Stand A Chance to be released
June 8, 2010 and you can hear reverence for the past and hope for the future, a band that can
cut across any age or genre demographics. The band just wrapped their video for the single
‘The Mistake.’ With a blend of old-school punk, world beat and modern pop influences, the
Chicago-based band combines experience with exuberance.

“I try to write songs about things people can relate to,” nods Adam. “For me, the best music,
at the end of the day, is therapeutic. That’s always in the back of my mind a little when
I’m sitting down to write.”

Recorded in Austin, TX, with renowned producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin,…And
You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead), AM Taxi’s major label bow, offers a variety of different
styles, from old-school punk to world beat and modern pop. “The Mistake” is a heart-on-the-
sleeve confessional that recalls the Replacements, while “Fed Up” is a Springsteen-by-way-
of-The Hold Steady classic rock raver, “Dead Street” sports a Police-styled world
beat and “Charissa” a Clash-esque reggae rhythm.
