A band whose internal struggles seemed almost as tumultuous as their music, Woe, Is Me was a metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia.
Formed in 2009, the band made a splash in 2010 with their debut album, Number[s], which jumped to number 16 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. A second album, Genesi[s], arrived in 2012, followed by an EP, American Dream, in 2013. Despite a successful career that saw them signed to Rise Records
, the band struggled to maintain a solid lineup. Their final lineup featured vocalists Hance Alligood (clean vocals) and Doriano Magliano (unclean vocals), guitarists Kevin Hanson (the only remaining founding member) and Andrew Paiano, bassist Brian Medley, and drummer David Angle. After singer Hance Alligood announced he was leaving the band in the summer of 2013, Woe, Is Me decided to call it quits rather than go through yet another lineup change. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
