Michael Urge developed the idea of glamourKings to describe the experience of living amidst the ignorance of suburban Long Island. Urge explains, "When you live here, everyone is fearful of any diversity; people here have this attitude that the world exists only on this Island.' But glamourKings is not just a reflection of suburban society, but the new human transformation of lusting over reality television, diet fads, television degradation, cosmetic surgery and celebrities; where every individual wears a crown to portray themselves as kings within their idea of a fashion induced glamorous society, while ignoring the symptoms of insecurity, isolation, and depravity that lie beneath. With all contempt set aside, the music of glamourKings is a blend of energetic dance rock that combines a mixture of electronic overtones with a raw rock edge. Urge states, "I was always influenced by the dynamics of groups like Nine Inch Nails that combined electronic and organic drums together, but as a real young kid I grew up loving the raw energy of bands like Guns N' Roses." Urge not only wants the listener to be seduced in the sound, but be one as he is... just another one of the Glamour Kings.
