Alexisonfire Return With Brand-New Music; Announce Four Headline Shows
A decade since their last studio recordings, Alexisonfire have returned with a brand-new single, Familiar Drugs.
The killer new track was produced by the band’s longtime friend Karl Bareham (City And Colour) and mixed by GRAMMY-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, You Me At Six), and a pressing of it is available for pre-order as a single-sided 7” vinyl with a laser-etched B-side.
“Familiar Drugs is about recognising you need to make a change in your life, being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do,” explains vocalist George Pettit. “It’s about something very specific to me but it can be taken literally or interpreted in any number of ways. Most people have something in their lives they can’t quit, substances, unhealthy relationships, lethargy, self righteousness, a job they hate. Familiar Drugs is about choosing comfort over self betterment.”

To coincide with the release of Familiar Drugs, Alexisonfire have also announced four massive global shows:
1 London Alexandra Palace
8 New York Terminal 5
13 Los Angeles The Wiltern
15 Toronto The Budweiser Stage
The band are also streaming a special performance tonight of Familiar Drugs – plus many more hits – from 8pm EST (1am in the UK) at this link.
