Geoff Kresge is a songwriter, guitarist, bassist, who played with AFI for most of their early career, from 1992 through 1997, and co-wrote the majority of their early material alongside frontman Davey Havok. During an AFI hiatus in 1993, he briefly moved to New Yorkmarker to join Blanks 77. He later went on to play with Canadian horror rock group The Forbidden Dimension and also a high-energy rock band, The Daggers, before subsequently joining Tiger Army. Though he played an electric bass in his previous bands, for Tiger Army he chose an upright bass.

Upon leaving Tiger Army in September 2004, Kresge formed the band Viva Hate with longtime friend Matt "Wedge" Wedgley (formerly of The Force). Before Viva Hate's permanent lineup had solidified, Kresge joined the HorrorPops on guitar, but continued writing songs with Wedge for Viva Hate. Ultimately Viva Hate began performing live whenever Kresge's schedule allowed for them to do so and subsequently the band completed a regional tour with one of Kresge's former bands, AFI.

In July 2007, Kresge announced that he had left HorrorPops as well as his recording label Dead Body Records, stating that he wished to dedicate full attention to Viva Hate.

In January 2008, on Tiger Army's official website, it was announced that Kresge had rejoined the band after the departure of then current bassist, Jeff Roffredo.

Kresge is married to Kamilla Vanilla (also formerly of the HorrorPops) and was also part-owner of Dead Body Records, as well as the founder and owner of the now-defunct Key Lime Pie Records, which released several early recordings by AFI. He has produced for several other bands, including Tiger Army, Heckle, Graveyard Shift and 12 Step Rebels.
