 +Luxury is an indie rock band from Toccoa, Georgia. They began playing together as The Shroud at Toccoa Falls College in the early 1990s, and changed their name to Luxury just before signing with [[Tooth & Nail Records]] and releasing their debut album, //Amazing and Thank You//, which was one of the few non-hardcore releases on the label at the time.
 +
 +Luxury toured extensively in the months following //Amazing and Thank You//'​s release. In late 1995, a bad highway collision between touring engagements resulted in most of the band's members being hospitalized. Consequently,​ Luxury took a year-long hiatus before going back on tour to support their second album, //The Latest & The Greatest//, though with fewer dates than initially anticipated. After growing more and more unhappy with the continually waning resources and promotion provided them by Tooth & Nail, they opted (in 1997) not to renew their contract with the label, and instead released their third album, //Luxury// (1999), on [[Bulletproof Records]], a smaller and more artist-friendly label. Soon after, Luxury broke up, and the band members went their separate ways.
 +
 +Jamie Bozeman started a new band called [[Canary]], which soon became [[They Sang as They Slew]], while [[Lee Bozeman]] recorded solo projects under the moniker [[All Things Bright and Beautiful]]. [[Lee Bozemon]] has also released music under his name and [[Orient is His Name]], while Jamie Bozeman has released several projects as [[Champion Leader]]. In 2018, Jamie Bozemon also began releasing solo albums under the name [[Golf Slang]].
 +
 +In 2005 Luxury reconvened in Toccoa to make a new record after a six-year hiatus. The result was their fourth effort as Luxury, called //Health And Sport//, which was released on [[Northern Records]]. The new recording featured all the original members of the band: Lee and Jamie Bozeman, Glenn Black, Chris Foley, and Matt Hinton (described by Jamie in a 1999 interview as the band's "fifth leg").
 +
 +In May 2008, Luxury became involved in a dispute with a Boston-based band using the name Luxury, resulting in confusion relating to the latter'​s album sales on Amazon.com. Subsequently,​ the latter took on the name The Luxury.
 +
 +In February 2013, the members of Luxury reunited to begin the process of song writing for a new album. In 2015, they released their fifth full-length album //​Trophies//​ to early supporters. The album has been described by music reviewers as the band's best work. //​Trophies//​ was officially released to the public in 2019. Luxury is currently releasing its records as an independent act.
 +
 +In March 2019, Eleventyseven lead singer Matt Langston interviewed drummer Glenn Black on the Eleventylife podcast and discussed the music industry, as well as the film documentary about the band entitled //Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury//.
 +
 +Three of the five members of the band (Foley, Bozeman, and Bozeman) are Orthodox priests, serving in the Orthodox Church in America.
