Like A Motorcycle is a melee attack with a soundtrack. They deliver poignant earworms for their fellow disenfranchised rejects; working minimum wage jobs while dodging five-figure debt. With their frighteningly explosive performances, coupled with an east-coast-hospitality meets knock-your-teeth-out personality, LAM are re-igniting the flame in the cynic hearts of seasoned punks, indoctrinating the teenage oddball children of frightened suburbanites, and inviting a morbid curiosity from everyone in between who have never themselves dwelled in the grimey recesses of society... but would go to the afterparty.
With a view to kicking the hell out of any audience in their path, punk rockers Like A Motorcycle have been cultivating a sound and reputation that has commanded attention from audiences and industry alike on stages across North America and Europe - in support of their ECMA and MNS award-winning debut LP "High Hopes".
LAM has played as direct support for such acts as Against Me!, Propagandhi, METZ, Headstones, The Vibrators, Japandroids, The Pack A.D. and Danko Jones, to name a few.
"Like a Motorcycle at HUFF showed me why they are the greatest r'n'r band left in this world."
-Canadian Punk Legend, Art Bergmann.
"They have a cool sound and they can probably party you under the table and write better songs too, then go work a 10-hour shift while you lie on the couch and moan about how bad your hangover is." - Charles Austin CBC
'It's like a donair for your ears, minus the clean up.' - Kerry Martin CBC
“A four-piece assault of a punk band.” Ryan McNutt, Exclaim
"Like A Motorcycle has the “IT” quality that people often talk about, but can’t describe." - THE HALIFAX MUSICPHILE
"Like A Motorcycles music is a heady mash of squalling guitars, bass lines that stick to your ribs and tight, soulful drumming, with lyrics about attraction, headfuckery and all that other stuff that drives you to drink. They're clever but not glib, scrappy but not hardened, and seem to know how to confront crimes of the heart without yielding to them." - Alison Lang THE COAST
