Biography

Castle Hill, Sydney, Australia (2008 – present)

Tonight Alive are an Australian 5 piece pop-punk band from Castle Hill, New South Wales. The band consists of bassist Cameron Adler, guitarist Jake Hardy, vocalist Jenna McDougall, drummer Matty Best and guitarist/vocalist Whakaio “Whak” Taahi. Forming in 2008, the band worked up a strong following in Australia’s scene, playing shows with bands such as Fireworks, Heroes For Hire and The Wonder Years; before gaining a substantial international profile through extensive touring of North American and Europe.

In 2010, the band released an EP, All Shapes and Disguises as well as a 7-inch entitled Consider This with three new songs. The band released four singles - “Breaking and Entering,” “Starlight,” “Listening” and “Let It Land” - from their debut album, What Are You So Scared Of?, which was released in Australia on October 14th, 2011. The record was officially released in the UK and US on October 2012, a year after its initial release in Australia.

A new single, “Breakdown,” was released at the start of 2013 and featured vocals from Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden. This was a standalone single, and did not appear on the band’s second studio album, The Other Side. The album was released in September 2013 and featured three singles - “The Ocean,” “Come Home” and “Lonely Girl,” the latter of which has amassed over one million views for its video clip on YouTube.

    Nicely said hkphe. There are similarities between the bands and their sounds; it's pointless to deny that. Yet Tonight Alive is definitely not a Paramore rip-off

    To be honest the people comparing TA to Paramore are right. Only problem is seemingly no one is realizing why. Both Paramore and TA started as "Popcore" (Postcore+PopPunk) bands who are female fronted and with every release got softer and more mainstream. The sound itself (speaking only in the boundaries of those genres) is different yes. But if seen from a macro perspective (music in general) they are pretty similair. All Shapes & Disguises was pretty much what Josh/Zac/Jeremy wanted AWKIF to be just that AWKIF should have been heavier ("real Postcore" instead of this Popcore TA is doing)
