DANGER!CROSSFIRE! Is an American rock band from Austin, Tx, formed in 2010. As of 2011 the band consists of frontman Chris Cribb (vocals/keyboards), Annalise Johnson (backing vocals/keyboards), Thrad Lee (guitar), Deano 'Pacino' Monistere (bass), and Josh Thompson (drums). In early 2007, Chris Cribb began composing songs and forming a band. For the next two years he worked with drummer Tyler Stevenson and bassist Trevor Searle, both of whom eventually left because of conflicts between the band and school. In late 2009 Chris partnered up with drummer Josh Thompson, who he had previously been in several bands with. In mid 2010 the two started working with singer and keyboardist Annalise Johnson. They also began working with guitarist Avery Allen and bassist Preston Bach. The 5-piece booked their first show in Austin, Texas at Antone's on Sept 8th, a day that happened to be frontman Chris Cribb's 21st birthday. Due to conflicts with other bands, guitarist Avery Allen had to drop out of DANGER!CROSSFIRE! a week before the show. The band brought in guest guitarist Zach 'AttAkk' Hennig to play the Antone's gig, and all was well. Shortly after the show, the band parted ways with bassist Preston Bach as he needed time to take care of personal issues that had recently come to light. After the Antone's show, the remaining trio of bandmates decided to put all their time and focus into recording at The Bubble in Austin, Tx. The band brought in musicians Ryan Redfern (bassist on the entire EP, guitarist on Upset the Hive and Viva Este Pueblo), Zach 'AttAkk' Hennig (guitarist on I'd Rather Die Young and Things That Go Bump In the Night), Laura Poyzer (violinist on Viva Este Pueblo and Thing That Go Bump In the Night), Justin Bernard Williams (saxophone on Things That Go Bump In the Night), and Michael St. Claire (trombone on Things That Go Bump In the Night). With the help of engineer Alex Lyon, the three bandmates put together an EP titled Noir which spawned many genres and made them one of the young powerhouse bands in Austin. Upon completion of Noir, the band joined forces with bassist Deano 'Pacino' Monistere and guitarist Thrad Lee. DANGER!CROSSFIRE! Went on to book their EP release show at Stubb's BBQ in Austin, Tx on May 3rd. Watch out for this band folks. The band and the musicians who make it what it is will soon be household names, on their way to the top of the charts.
