Vocalist/guitarist Steve DeMarchi and business lead vocalist Freddy Curci, both former associates from the deceased Canadian music group Sheriff, pulled jointly through the mid-’80s to create and record over four dozen demonstration music. In 1988, guitarist Roger Fisher, bassist Steve Fossen, and drummer Michael Derosier, all previous members from the strike group Heart, joined up with up with Curci and DeMarchi to create a fresh, short-lived rock-band known as Alias. In 1990, Alias released its first record, a self-titled debut documented beneath the Capitol Information label. The refined album went precious metal within the U.S. and platinum in Canada, even though several tracks appreciated radio airplay both in countries. The energy ballad “A LOT MORE THAN Words Can State” became the band’s biggest strike, climbing to number 2 over the Billboard Sizzling hot 100 while also successful in adult modern and mainstream rock and roll forms. A tour implemented (including a stint because the starting action for REO Speedwagon), but Alias dropped apart shortly following the album’s discharge, using the previous Heart musicians departing en masse. Rumours of the reunion circulated for quite a while but never found fruition.
