Biography

St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada (2001 – 2011)

Alexisonfire (pronounced ‘alexis-on-fire’) was a band from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Their music was characterized by turbulent and explosive dynamics with intricate guitar melodies. Consisting of five friends, they formed in late 2001 as the result of a three-band break up. In August 2011, it was announced on their website that they had broken up as members expressed interests in other projects.

The band’s name is inspired by a lactating contortionist stripper named Alexis Fire. This caused problems when she discovered that they were using her website name (alexisonfire.com) as their band name, and threatened to sue. However, since she had never trademarked the title nothing became of these threats. In the end, the band decided to change their website’s URL in spite to theonlybandever.com

Alexisonfire’s lyrical topics range from relationship troubles to go-karting. They have two primary vocalists, screaming duties carried out by George Pettit, and singing by Dallas Green, with support from Wade MacNeil.

While their largest fanbase was in their home country of Canada, they also became more popular in other parts of the world, including Japan, Australia, Europe and the US. In the second half of 2010, they toured Australia with Break Even, Europe with Chickenhawk and The Computers and then Canada with Norma Jean and La Dispute.

    These guys, Underoath, and My Chemical Romance all had a big hand in shaping my music taste. Can't believe it was over 10 years ago now.

    It's a pity I never got to see them live. Crisis is one of the best albums I have ever heard. They are vocally and melodically so awesome!

    LOL@Poopydude13 You're so funny, they were one of the most relevant and influential bands in the genre around 2002-2009, you must be new listening to Post-hardcore, poor kid, go listen your terrible 'Black Veil Brides' albums.
