Alexisonfire (pronounced 'Alexis-on-fire') is a band from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Their music is 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. 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 is 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. The band was nominated for "ugliest rock band ever" at the CASBY awards (held by local Toronto radio station) but lost out to another Canadian born band, Sum 41. In 2010 they then won the "Best New Single" Award for their track The Northern.

Boston Manor are a British punk rock band formed in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, in March 2013. They released a first EP, Here/Now, through Never Mend Records on Bandcamp, and in 2014 they signed with Failure By Design Records for their second EP, Driftwood. In 2015, the band signed with Pure Noise Records: with them, they released another EP, Saudade, as well as their full-length albums Be Nothing (2016), Welcome to the Neigbourhood (2018) and Glue (2020). The band's sound blends emo with heavier influences, reminiscing of 90's grunge and early 2000s post-hardcore. The band have been nominated for Best British Breakthrough at Kerrang! Awards in 2018 and Welcome to the Neighbourhood received a nomination for Best Album Artwork at Heavy Music Awards in 2019. Boston Manor started in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, in March 2013, after splitting up with their previous bands. “There isn’t much of a music scene in Blackpool,” vocalist Henry Cox affirmed. “We had a little stab at reinvigorating it. When we were 16, 17, 18, we were playing shows when we were with different bands. But there would be a gig at a venue and you could only do the one.” Talking about their beginnings, he added: “We had to buy a van and play outside Blackpool as it was the only way to get our music out there.” The band's name comes from the title of a demo that one of Henry's friends sent him. Current lineup: Henry Cox – lead vocals Mike Cunniff – lead guitar Ash Wilson – rhythm guitar, backing vocals Dan Cunniff – bass, backing vocals Jordan Pugh – drums bostonmanorband.com Read more on Last.fm.
