Formed in early 2012, No Glory are making an impressive name for themselves on the UK's alternative music scene, influenced by the rock and metal bands of the 80s, they pride themselves on maintaining an old school edge, whilst blending in the new sounds of modern rock. Being different to most bands on the current music scene, in both sound and onstage performance, No Glory are going from strength to strength!

Valleys boy born and bread, Chris was 14 when he first got involved with the band scene, singing with various bands. After a long break while he raised a family, Chris came back onto the scene with the covers band The Magic Bus as lead singer and rhythm guitarist, this then went into the band Black Butterfly, releasing the album Into The Exosphere which was given a 7 out of 10 rating in Classic Rock magazine, unfortunately Black Butterfly came to a premature end and Chris went back to covers with the band Rocket Dogs, after 5 years of playing together it was decided that it was time to end, Chris took this opportunity to explore making original music once more and responded to an add for a signer with No Glory, the rest as they say is history.

Curtis Jones, our lead guitarist first ventured into the local music scene as a bassist for a punk rock band named Our Last Stand. He went on with numerous other rock outfits, eventually finding his feet as lead guitarist in the alternative rock band Hindsight. Throughout his musical career Curt has pushed himself to improve his playing whilst continuously writing material and playing live. After ending a 2 year stint with Hindsight, Curt successfully auditioned for No Glory and hasn't looked back since, bringing a classic rock and roll feel to the band with many influences such as Slash, Aerosmith, Jane's Addiction and many more.
Renowned for his penetrating basslines as much as his abundant genitalia, bassist Steve has been playing his brand of rhythm-infused rock'n'roll in the north of Wales long enough to know better. Having recently moved southward to pursue a PhD, he is now seeking pastures new on which to inflict his rock n roll ethos.
Gruff has been playing drums for over 10 years. He initially learned whilst playing for Drunk on Arrival, a 'just-for laughs' band formed out of boredom to impress the ladies. A few months later DSF was formed; a fast paced amalgamation of various punk genres. During his university years, he drummed for The Phlegms, an 80s punk inspired group; Whiskey Trick, an original classic rock band; Leading to Zenith, an alternative rock group that toured Europe, and now: No Glory!
