The KiLLeR DWaRFs were formed in 1981 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. They quickly gained international success in Canada with the Juno nominated self-titled KiLLeR DWaRFs debut album in 1983 with Attic Records. The band received a lot of attention in the USA. Originals Bryce and Ange both left the band in 1984 to be replaced by Mike Hall and Ron Mayer. They soon cut the iconic and highly sought after album STAND TALL in ’86 on Maze/A&M/Grudge Records. The first single, “Keep the Spirit Alive,” was an anthem of the times. Canada’s Much Music and MTV provided substantial airplay for their hits “Stand Tall ” and “Keep The Spirit Alive” providing great exposure for the band.
