Alexisonfire Concert Preview

This band from Southern Ontario starting playing together in 2001 and have built quite a career for themselves since. Winning multiple awards (MMVAs and Junos) in Canada they have also toured around the world. Despite all the success this is not a band who are looking for 'hits' they just wanna make the music they like and hope that their fans enjoy it as well. No selling out to the pop punk movement with these guys. Their love of performing live also comes through and is the main reason they make music. When you see them perform live it is all about energy and feeding off the crowd.

The five member (Dallas Green, George Pettit, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, Jordan Hastings) hard rock band combines a unique blend of melody and emotional vocals with screaming vocals and crunching guitars. Green and Pettit trade off on the lead vocal duties, so it is like you are getting two very different interpretations of the same song. What you will notice listening to their music is the quality of the musicianship; unlike many young bands they really know how to play their instruments. Most of their tunes are of the anthemic variety and really get a crowd going. All this translates into a fun night for those who take in their shows.
