Ignite In-depth Biography

Ignite}, a socially and politically conscious melodic hardcore four-piece hailing from Orange County, California, formed in 1993 with distinctly-voiced frontman Zoli Teglas} (who grew up in both Hungary and L.A.) as the chief force behind the band's aggressive rock sound. Teglas}' brother is a wildlife preservation veterinarian; therefore, Teglas} has taken account to such issues as environmental concerns and vegetarianism -- common topics found on the band's 2000 release, A Place Called Home}. Representing earth-minded organizations such as Earth First, Doctor Without Borders, and Sea Shepherds, Ignite} has played several benefit shows with proceeds going to these particular groups, among others.

Ignite} released a handful of singles, demos and two full-lengths -- 1995's Call On My Brothers} and 1996's Past Our Means} EP -- before making their TVT} label debut with A Place Called Home} in May 2000. By then, the band comprised Teglas}, bassist Brett Rasmussen}, guitarist Brian Balchak} (who had replaced John D. Foster}) and drummer Craig Anderson} (replacing Casey Jones}). Achieving a dedicated following overseas, Ignite} toured extensively throughout the late '90s, including European dates played on the Vans' Warped Tour}, UK's Reading Festival}, Hungary's Pepsi Sziget Festival}, and the Hultsfred Festival} in Sweden as well as sharing dates with Pennywise} and Sick of It All}. Teglas} briefly took over lead vocals in 2000 for a reunited and touring Misfits}. Ignite} left TVT} in 2001, and while the band was in between labels, Teglas} and Rassmussen} did some work with the side project California United} that they'd formed with the Lonely Kings}' Jon Barrysmith} and Jet Lag}'s Nik Hill}, playing a handful of European dates together in 2003. Back on the Ignite} front, the guys played their first U.S. shows together in two years in early summer 2004 before, of course, heading out globally. They signed to Abacus Recordings} in mid-2005, entering the studio that fall to begin work on their next album. Our Darkest Days} appeared in May of 2006, and the band -- now with second guitarist Nik Hill} on board -- supported it on shows with Rise Against}, Blacklisted} and Set Your Goals}. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & Corey Apar, All Music Guide
