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 fi rst full length album in 2004 titled Autumn is the Glorifi cation 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.
