The Exies Biography

This Alternative-Rock band were formed in the summer of 1997 in Los Angeles, California USA, around the line-up of Scott Stevens on vocals + guitar, Freddy Herrera on bass and Thom Sullivan on drums; the following year guitarist David Walsh joined The Exies which began playing clubs in Southern California.

Sullivan left the band before the band recorded its self-titled debut album, which was issued in March 2000, driven by the radio-friendly single "Baby's Got A New Revelation". Not long after, Dennis Wolfe took the place of Sullivan behind the drum kit.

By the spring of 2001, the revitalized group had a new album's worth of material and a new record deal with Virgin Records who released in early 2003 "Inertia"; their second effort soared to the #1 spot on Billboard Magazine's Top Heatseekers and reached #115 on the U.S. National Albums charts, while the main single, "My Goddess", crashed into the top 20 of The Mainstream Rock chart.

The SoCal modern Rock outfit returned with the second Virgin Records CD, "Head For The Door", in the fall of 2004; it incuded "Ugly" which reached #11 on the Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks and #13 on The Modern Rock list. The second single, "What You Deserve", also hit the top 40 of the Active Rock chart.

After two years of touring with bands like Breaking Benjamin, 30 Seconds To Mars, The Used, Sparta and Evanescence, The Exies appeared on Mötley Crüe's Carnival Of Sins tour by special request of longtime fan Nikki Sixx, who helped make the introduction to Eleven Seven Music label to issue their fourth album, "A Modern Way Of Living With The Truth" in May 2007; the CD contained the Hot Mainstream Rock top 30 hit "Different Than You". At this time, the band's line-up consisted of Scott Stevens, Freddy Herrera, guitarist Chris Skane and drummer Hoss Wright. In its digital edition, "A Modern Way Of Living With The Truth", featured five extra tracks including the single "God We Look Good (Going Down in Flames)", a politically-charged number related in part to their Jail Paris Hilton 2007 campaign.
