Alexisonfire (pronounced Alexis On Fire) is a five-piece post-hardcore band formed in St. Catharines, Ontario, in 2001. The group consisted of George Pettit (unclean vocals), Dallas Green (clean vocals, piano, rhythm guitar), Wade McNeil (lead guitar, backing vocals), Chris Steele (bass) and Jordan Hastings (drums and percussion). Although the band officially called it quits a few years ago, there have been the occasional reunions. Dallas Green has established a solid solo career under the name City and Colour.
