Ever since Know Lyfe formed in a dark, damp basement in Lansing, Michigan in September of 2000, the band has had a single vision in mind...to make music that pushes the envelope and reaches out to a very wide audience. The band consists of vocalist Alfonso Civile, guitarist Jerred Pruneau, drummer Matt Martens, and bassist Waylon Fox. These four individuals live, eat, and breathe music and have been creating original, exciting, and energetic material for the past decade, regardless of many popular trends.
While earning their stripes touring constantly and playing over a thousand shows, Know Lyfe has continued to build a solid national fan base, gaining respect for sticking true to their musical roots and capturing audiences with an intense live show.
The group released their first full length album in 2004 entitled "Autumn is the Glorification of Death." Know Lyfe's most popular release to date is the 2005 EP "Veins and Vines" selling over 4,000 copies independently. The bands current release, "On Cold Hands and Dark Waters", came out in January of 2008. This album landed Know Lyfe a national distribution deal and has been released in stores all over the country.
With another album in the works, Know Lyfe continues to march forward while proving themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
campaign is to help us raise the money to help us either fix or purchase a new van. We are
not a signed band with a record label backing us and giving us money to
do as we see fit for a recording. We are four guys who have been this
band for 13yrs. We are passionate about the music we play and we want to
put out the best possible record we can for all of you. Sadly we were driving in a bad storm and had our van take some serious damage after hitting a down tree
Your help goes along way. You have no idea what hurdles a band faces day to day, money is the biggest hurdle. We don;t do this to be rich or to be famous. We do this because it is what we love. It is our passion and we love it with every single part of our being and we want to share that passion, love, and drive with all of you. We hope that you will help us on this journey and have a hand in helping create something amazing and valuable.
