Wade MacNeil

On-Air Personality at The Edge 102.1, Alexisonfire, Gallows,
Alexisonfire
Toronto, ON, Canada
Born in Hamilton and raised in St. Catharines, Wade MacNeil is perhaps best known for his 11 year tenure as guitarist for Alexisonfire, one of the biggest bands to come out of Canada’s underground music scene. Alexisonfire released four hugely successful studio albums, 3 of which were certified Platinum, the fourth certified Gold. Their LP Crisis also debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan chart in Canada and the band was recognized with a JUNO for New Group of the Year at in 2004.

Wade’s been on the road pretty much non-stop since he was old enough to carry an amp, sweating it out at all-ages basement shows, in North America’s most venerable clubs, arenas and amphitheatres and Europe’s biggest rock festivals. Along the way, he’s worked and played with many of his musical heroes, and made a name for himself as an encyclopedia of aggressive music and pop culture from the dark side. Currently, Wade splits his time between being the lead singer of UK based hardcore band Gallows, as well as an on-air personality on The Edge 102.1.
