Northlane were formed in 2009 as a metalcore band in Western Sydney by Jon Deiley on lead guitar, Brendan Derby on drums and percussion, Adrian Fitipaldes on lead vocals, Alex Milovic on bass guitar and Josh Smith on rhythm guitar. They are named after the 2007 track “North Lane” by British metalcore band, Architects. In 2013, Fitipaldes described their formation, “pretty much, through the internet and common interest” where Deiley and Milovic had contacted each other to start song writing. He continued that “once they had the songs down, they started recruiting members.”
