Reading & Leeds 22-24 August 2008




Named after a cartoonist stripper, Alexis' post-hardcore sound is irreverent and raw. Antagonistic and always on the verge of breaking up, anything can happen on stage.

User Reviews

they were unbelievable, made my weekend the contrast between the two voices is beautifullll, even better live

ive heard their songs, not a major fan, watched em at leeds an i dont mean to annoy alexisonfire fans off cos to be honest in my eyes, i think they could do without the lead frontman, the guitarists seem like they got the singin and screamin covered between them, still a really good set :D

i got dallas greens guitar pick at reading!!!!!!! happyest moment of my life :)

Wicked, loved them. Played exactly what I wanted to hear and put on a great show. :)

I got the drumstick :)

saw them at leeds, amazing (: dallas green is an awesome singer!

made my day after avenged had pulled out!! amazzinng

Just simply FANTASTIC, made Reading complete for me. Dallas Green has the most amazing voice in the world

Amazing, such an emotional performance. Great fun especially when the secuirty guard told everyone if they wanted to be on tv they should crowd surf... and 50 people went over head!

Awesome band, even better crowd response!I was right there at the front during Accidents when George crowd surfed. I held his hand!Rousing energy, sweet set!
