Alexisonfire (that's "Alexis On Fire") was a Post-Hardcore band from St. Catharines, Ontario, active from 2001-2011. Their style, described by the band as "the sound of two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight", featured stark contrasts between soaring melody and brutality, through the interplay between three singers. Their self-titled debut is considered a landmark of its genre and their other three albums went platinum in Canada. The band broke up in 2011 because singer/guitarists Dallas Green and Wade Mac Neil left to focus on their side projects, as well as "personal issues".

Band members:

  • George Pettit- lead vocals
  • Wade Mac Neil- guitar, vocals
  • Dallas Green- guitar, vocals
  • Chris Steele- bass
  • Jordan Hastings- drums (2005-2011)


  • Alexisonfire (2002)
  • Watch Out! (2004)
  • Crisis (2006)
  • Old Crows/Young Cardinals (2009)

This band provides examples of the following tropes:


 You had the coldest eyes and the softest touch

  • Mundane Made Awesome- "Hey, It's Your Funeral Mama" is probably the most hardcore song ever written about go-karting.
  • Soprano and Gravel- a triple-male variant, with George providing the screamed vocals, Dallas; the melodic singing, and Wade, who provides the shouted, Hardcore Punk-style vocals.
  • Shout-Out- The cover of Watch Out! and the lyrics to "That Girl Possessed" are nods to The Exorcist.
  • Surprisingly Gentle Song- "Side Walk When She Walks", which is a relaxed song sung entirely by Dallas, with no screaming or heavy guitars.
  • Take That- "Keep It On Wax" is one, long "fuck you" to their first drummer, Jesse Ingelevics, for trash-talking the band after he left.
  • The Problem with Pen Island- The band name can by read several different ways. People on YouTube are constantly asking if it's pronounced "Alex is on fire" (it's not), which can be something of a Berserk Button for fans of the band.
