Details of Alexisonfire and the Ticket Luck value
Alexisonfire is a five member band being composed and formed in Ontario, Canada in the year 2001. The band consists of George Pettit (vocals), Dallas Green (guitar/vocals), Wade MacNeil (guitar/vocals), Chris Steele (bass), and Jordan Hastings (drums/percussion).
The band was formed in a strange way by the splitting of three bands. All of band members were working for different groups and they united to form a group having a music being defined as the the sound of two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight. The description is a very well fitted one for the band as there is so much diversity in the music and it produces a soft melody based music being sung by Mac Neil and at the same time the group member Petite sings in a punk rock style. The two extremely opposite domains of music being explored and experimented by the band was the highlight of their music album and it really impressed the critics as well as the audience and helped them in winning the gold certification.
The band has released two albums at later providing adding to their success and popularity. It is interesting to note that these albums have also got platinum certificates in Canada.
