The Exies

The Exies come straight out of the L.A. rock scene. They formed in 1997, but it wasn't until 2000 that they released their first full length album. It was said that Dean DeLeo of the Stone Temple Pilots discovered The Exies, but in reality he was nothing more than one of the band's original fans. While the rumour was only that, it certainly got the word out about the band. Then in 2000, The Exies grabbed the attention of a Virgin Records representative, who signed them shortly after. Then came the release of their second album, Intertia. Fans of heavy alternative along the lines of Papa Roach, Hoobastank and Three Days Grace took a liking to the Exies immediately. Their popularity was showcased by the succes of their song "My Goodness", which was all over the airwaves. Over the course of their career, The Exies have gone through a lineup change. Currently, they are Scott Stevens (vocals/guitar), Freddy Herrera (bass), David Walsh (guitar) and Dennis Wolfe (drums). Their latest album "Head For The Door" is more of what fans love about these guys: guitar heavy songs, loaded with melody and smooth vocals. The Exies have come a long way since "Inertia", and "Head For The Door" if definite proof. Best songs are: "Splinter", "Ugly", "My Opinion" and "Don't Push The River".
