In today’s repetitious Rock world, it’s refreshing when an artist comes along with a truly engaging and entertaining sound that can grasp the listener’s attention and leave a mark that is not soon forgotten. As you listen to an album and accurately experience the passion the artist felt, you carry that connection and share it with everyone around you. This is definitely the case with Jacksonville’s Allele (pronounced Uh-Leel) as the Florida 5 piece has been tearing up stages across the US alongside major artists Saliva, Shinedown,10Years, Trapt, Staind, Nonpoint, Sevendust, P.O.D., Cold, Chimaira, Tantric, Soil, Taproot, Adema, Yellowcard, Earshot, Socialburn, 12 Stones and Godhead, all along the way building an army of devoted followers. The Allele Brigade remains truly loyal.
Allele ,formed in Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2002 by vocalist Wally Wood & guitarist Lane Maverick. "Point of Origin" (2005) recorded at Cleveland’s Spider Studios and produced by Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Breaking Point, Bleed the Sky, Rikets) singer for the band Switched, Point of Origin became an album that showed the many sides of this complex ensemble, and assuredly guaranteed them a spot in the hearts and CD collections of Hard Rock fans and on radio playlists for years to come.
The band rapidly progressed towards their goals and the Allele Brigade grew exponentially with their first single and video for “Closer to Habit” that became a staple on Active Rock radio charting #2 and steadily beginning an assault on the airwaves, and a rigorous tour schedule taking them through 2005. In 2006, Allele contributed “Stitches” to the THQ video game WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 and was featured in trailers and promos for TNT's Stephen King anthology series, "Nightmares and Dreamscapes".
Gaining live experience by touring across the country, with national acts such as 10 Years,Saliva,Evans Blue, and many other regional bands playing festivals, clubs, and arenas all with nothing but success while gaining a devoted fan base along the way.
In May 2011, ALLELE tracked the music for their sophomore album "Next to Parallel" at A1A studios in Jacksonville, Fl. Wood then flew to Laguna, Ca to track the vocals with engineer Pete Charell (bassist for TRAPT) at Dexter Dog Studios and mixed and mastered at MyPlatinumSound by Paul Lapinski (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Alicia Keys, Evergreen Terrace, Inspection 12, Yellowcard, Indorphine). The beauty of Next to Parallel is that they have had complete creative control perfecting a sound that they can truly call their own. June 2012 Allele with mixing master Scott Bush(The Nixons), (Time Line Studio's) recorded 5 great songs signing to Extreme/ Sony/ ATV.
