All Envy Aside, formerly known as Envy, is a five-piece rock band formed in Platteville, Wisconsin, USA, in 2001. The band came to national attention after winning MTVu's Best Band on Campus competition in January 2006. Shortly after winning the contest, the group was signed to a deal with Universal Records, re-recorded a new single ("Burning Again") and released a music video which was featured on MTVu's website. On May 31, 2007 AEA website reported that the band is on a "indefinite hiatus" and continued to thank their fans for years of support.
All Envy Aside has also released its own full-length role playing video game, Envy RPG: Quest for a Bassist, featuring the members of the band as characters.
In September 2002, the band's bassist, Chris Wolf, left the band for personal reasons. This marked the first of several bass player changes that has plagued the band over time.
All Envy Aside has announced on their MySpace that they are on a hiatus.
The band's original drummer, Dan Moris, was with the band since its inception in 2002 until 2005, when the band moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was replaced by current drummer Nic Fugate.
The band was originally named Envy, a name chosen on the spur of the moment before taking the stage before their first gig. They played under that name until signing with Universal Records. The band's name was changed to All Envy Aside in 2006 as there was already an established hardcore/screamo band from Japan named Envy.
After the video for "Burning Again" was released, it spent four weeks atop MTVu's Dean's List for favorite new songs.
