Halifax Biography

Back in 2003 the Alternative-Rock group Halifax was just another in a myriad of unsigned but resolute indie outfits rolling the highways and byways of North America. Comprising of lead singer Mike Hunau, guitarist + vocalist Chris Brandt, guitarist Adam Charles, bassist Doug Peyton, drummer Tommy Guindon and sharing van space, shitty hotel rooms, bodily aromas and a collective dream in between crappy jobs in chain restaurants and landscaping, the group from Thousand Oaks, California USA, recorded and supported its initial EP, "A Writer's Reference".

Within a year's time, Halifax found itself among the lower echelon of the 2004 Warped Tour, but its reputation continued to grow. By early 2005, after establishing a relationship with Drive-Thru Records the label tweaked and reissued their debut EP.
The band's first full-length album, "The Inevitability Of A Strange World", arrived in May 2006 reaching the #130 position on The Billboard Top 200 Sales chart; it included the minor alt-Rock radio hit "Our Revolution".
Throughout the next couple years the band continued to tour on a regular basis, however, they replaced Peyton with Eric Ivener on bass and finally parted company with Mike Hunau.

With Chris Brandt, now assuming the role of lead singer in addition to his guitar duties, Halifax returned in April 2010 with the self-released 6-song EP "Align".
