"The street heats the urgency of now/As you see, there's no one around..."
This is the tour we've been waiting for!
“We spent so much time on the road thinking that if we stopped, people would lose interest. But when we went away, it only got bigger. We all carved new paths for ourselves, so coming back to Alexisonfire is a purely enjoyable creative venture. Something special happens when we get in a room together.”
"A continuous thread through the fabric of Alexisonfire is the state of otherness."
"When you’re touring in a band for many years, it’s just this fast tornado that feels never ending. Next thing you know, ten years have passed."
Canadian five-piece Alexisonfire clawed their way to the top of the post-hardcore foodchain with impeccable musicianship and unmatched charisma and intensity in the live arena. Ending their decade-long career last year, the band has decided to reunite for one last run of shows in December, with the Sydney show sold-out and Melbourne selling fast with extra tickets recently released. Guitarist Wade MacNeil spoke to Kill Your Stereo about the final tour and the band’s legacy.
Great covers from a great band.
more for fans of hardcore than City and Colour
Canada's finest export Alexisonfire have just released their fourth Studio album 'Old Crows/YoungCardinals' on Dine Alone/Shock Records, and it's been a long time coming for fans. It's been almost three years since the AOF released their highly acclaimed album 'Crisis', which, like their previous two LP's, went platinum in Canada. Frontman George Pettit was kind enough to answer a few questions for us.
It seems like every time I open a magazine or log into MySpace there’s some new band that I “NEED TO KNOW ABOUT”. We’re constantly getting inundated with groups who claim that their mix of aggression and melody is both genre defying and original. Fortunately we have Alexisonfire. Free from gimmicks and armed with a storming live show, AOF are about to hit Australia for the 3rd time! George Pettit (vocals) kindly donated some of his time off to talk to us…
