about

Among Legends' sophomore EP 'Starting Over' picks up where "We Were Vaguely Saints" ends off - pushing the band further into true pop-punk territory without losing their punk rock edge. As with all previous releases, 'Starting Over' represents a continuation of Among Legends' mission to create a more positive, inclusive pop-punk community. Songs like "Half Past Nine" and "Reparations" tackle topics like heartbreak and the struggles of maintaining healthy relationships, while tracks like "Renegade" and "Final Curtain Call" encourage listeners to find the strength and inspiration to overcome struggles and do the things that they were meant to do. With a new collection of seven catchy, high-energy tracks, Among Legends' 'Starting Over' is sure to appeal to pop-punk fans and skeptics alike.

Track Name: It Doesn't Matter What We Do
Well they say they don’t know why you’re with me
But no one really understands the way we tend to be
‘Cause there’s so much more to this than they’ll ever know
So just take my hand and jump ‘cause I will never let you go

So when you're down on the ground
And there's no one left around
Just call out, make a sound
You and I can take this town
Or just stay home on our own
Watching TV all alone
It doesn't matter what we do
As long as I'm with you

This town is getting smaller every day
I’m searching for a sign of life on streets and alleyways
But you bring the summer heat and energy
At any time of year; I just need you close to me

So when you're down on the ground
And there's no one left around
Just call out, make a sound
You and I can take this town
Or just stay home on our own
Watching TV all alone
It doesn't matter what we do
As long as I'm with you

It’s nights like this when we can’t get enough
So let’s get out of town and drive until the sun comes up
You can sing along to your favourite song as I roll the windows down
It’s just you and me and the summer nighttime air as we escape this town

So when you're down on the ground
And there's no one left around
Just call out, make a sound
You and I can take this town
Or just stay home on our own
Watching TV all alone
It doesn't matter what we do
As long as I'm with you

So when you're down on the ground
And there's no one left around
Just call out, make a sound
You and I can take this town
Or just stay home on our own
Watching TV all alone
It doesn't matter what we do
As long as I'm with you
Track Name: Final Curtain Call
I’ve never really felt like I’ve been in control
Of the things that I want, all my dreams and goals
But sometimes it’s not about the path you take
Yeah it’s more about the things you do along the way
So tonight I’m gonna do it all
Yeah it’s going down but I will never fall

It’s so easy to find darkness in everything
But the world gets brighter when we sing - because

Tonight’s the night I’m gonna turn this around
Jump in and give it my all
No one can stop me when I hit the ground running
Fighting for what I believe ‘til the final curtain call

I won’t stop doing all I can
To hold my dreams in the palm of my hand
And I know it seems impossible
But you’d best be looking twice ‘cause I’m unstoppable
So tonight I’m breaking down the walls
True to myself, yeah I’m standing tall

It’s so easy to find darkness in everything
But the world gets brighter when we sing - because

Tonight’s the night I’m gonna turn this around
Jump in and give it my all
No one can stop me when I hit the ground running
Fighting for what I believe ‘til the final curtain call

Shut up, eyes down, you’re always telling me to
Fall back, in line, I have to be just like you
But I fight, against, a world not made for me
I live my life to fight complacency

It’s so easy to find darkness in everything
But the world gets brighter when we sing - because

Tonight’s the night I’m gonna turn this around
Jump in and give it my all
No one can stop me when I hit the ground running
Fighting for what I believe ‘til the final curtain call
Track Name: Reparations
And he’s said some things he wished he hadn’t said
Yeah he’s said some things that are better off erased out of his head
But a spotless mind just isn’t in the cards, so it’s another night of
Reparations and letting down his guard, so they can
Make it through this storm - together
And he says

I’m not great at pushing past my pride, but I
Know we can’t survive if we don’t try; I’ll do
Anything to make it right 'cause I
Just can’t sleep alone again tonight

She’s been through so many times like these, when the
Days of silence stretch out into weeks, and she just
Wants to take back everything she screamed, so it’s another night of
Reparations to fix what could have been, so they can
Make it through this storm - together
And she says

I’m not great at pushing past my pride, but I
Know we can’t survive if we don’t try; I’ll do
Anything to make it right 'cause I
Just can’t sleep alone again tonight

So when things start falling apart
I will always keep your heart
Safe from stormy winds and waves
And in the end we can be saved

Yeah we can make it through this storm

I’m not great at pushing past my pride, but I
Know we can’t survive if we don’t try; I’ll do
Anything to make it right 'cause I
Just can’t sleep alone, no I
Hate when I’m alone, so just
Please tell me you’re coming home tonight
Track Name: Punk Rock Hoser
Well I might be a Canuck but I don't drink Canadian
And my toques and hockey gear and plaid shirts have all been traded in
'Cause the mortgage on my igloo was more than I bargained for
Yeah the living's not to easy up here in the great white north

But punk rock saved my life, yeah the music helps me
Keep my stick on the ice, when I'm feeling cold on a
Snowy Arctic night, I just think aboot how
Punk rock saved my life
Track Name: Half Past Nine
I'd pick you up at half past nine
And we'd walk with your hand in mine
We would talk all the time
Your eyes and the stars always aligned
I don't know what when wrong
But I pray it won't be long
Till I see that you've come home
Not just a picture on my phone

I wake up every night
Feeling sick from all those fights
And every day it's the same
Thoughts of you just cloud my brain
I try to learn from my mistakes
If you were here you'd see the change
So let’s start over, me and you
We can see this through

'Cause you were all I ever needed
Can't you see my heart is bleeding
But I - I wanna fly
And I - I wanna fly away

We started out so happily
I never thought this is where we'd be
It felt like heaven, what we’d found
You’d smile at me & my heart would pound
But now it’s pounding ‘cause I’m scared
That we’ll lose this life we share
Let’s talk it out and try again
This doesn’t have to end

'Cause you were all I ever needed
Can't you see my heart is bleeding
But I - I wanna fly
And I - I wanna fly away

Now my clock says half past nine
The sun set behind the horizon line
You moved on and so should I
Thank God for these friends of mine
It still hurts to think of you
But each day they help me through
In the end, I'll be fine
Someday I won't notice half past nine

'Cause you were all I ever needed
But now my heart's no longer bleeding
And I - learned how to fly
Yeah I - learned how to fly away
Track Name: Renegade
I’m finally on my way; I’m moving past the
Things that hold me back, so step aside ‘cause
I’m not gonna stay close to anything that
Pulls me off my path
You might try to stop me from realizing
All that I can be, but I’ll push forward;
Don’t think I forgot those words you said but
They don’t bother me

When you try to pull me down, I’ll pick myself up off the ground
Yeah I’m broken and I’m bruised
But don’t think I’ll stay down because of you
‘Cause no matter what’s in my way, I know things will be okay
I’m an optimist at heart; yeah great things are close and it starts | with | me

I’ll fight back and win, ‘cause my mind is clear;
I know what I can become if I give it all, so
Bring it on again, ‘cause you can’t stop me;
I’ve already won
So live life for today and do the things that
Put you on the map; so find your course and
Fight to never stray; keep pushing forward
On your chosen path

You will never bring me down
I will fight and stand my ground
Your disbelief is the perfect sound

When you try to pull me down, I’ll pick myself up off the ground
Yeah I’m broken and I’m bruised
But don’t think I’ll stay down because of you
‘Cause no matter what’s in my way, I know things will be okay
I’m an optimist at heart; yeah great things are close and it starts | with | me

When you try to pull me down, I’ll pick myself up off the ground
Yeah I’m broken and I’m bruised
But I’ll get back up in spite of you
‘Cause no matter what’s in my way, I know things will be okay
I’m an optimist at heart; yeah great things are close and it starts | with | me
Track Name: The Wall
Another night, another sleepless night alone; it's 4am
You're staring at the ceiling, hoping that the phone will start to ring
But the room stays silent; this weight that pulls you down
Has never felt more violent

And I know you told me to disappear
But I won't give up; no, I'll always be here

I’ve got my back against the wall; I know you’re trying to hold on.
But even with my back against the wall, I swear I’ll never let you fall.
Persevere and stand up tall; fight through the pain, keep moving on.
Even with your back against the…

November hasn't felt the same since our voices rang out
Over rooftops, always pointing blame, and I know this
Bitter cold might stay, even after all the
Dry leaves blow away

And I know we might be stuck here for some time
But I won't give up; with work I know we can be fine

I’ve got my back against the wall; I know you’re trying to hold on.
But even with my back against the wall, I swear I’ll never let you fall.
Persevere and stand up tall; fight through the pain, keep moving on.
Even with your back against the…

And you said we’d never make it out alive
But I have faith, that somehow, we’re strong enough to survive

I’ve got my back against the wall; I know you’re trying to hold on.
But even with my back against the wall, I swear I’ll never let you fall.
Persevere and stand up tall; fight through the pain, keep moving on.
Even with your back against the…

I’ve got my back against the wall; I know you’re trying to hold on.
But even with my back against the wall, I swear I’ll never let you fall.
Persevere and stand up tall; fight through the pain, keep moving on.
Even with your back against the…
