Alexisonfire Return For Festival Shows
In the latest installment of Things You Probably Could Have Seen Coming, after teasing us over the weekend with cryptic #AOF2015 posts, one of BLUNT’s favourite bands in Alexisonfire are gettin’ the band back together for festival shows in Canada, the UK, and the US. While there haven’t been any Australian dates announced as yet, we’re holding out hope that the Canadian post-hardcore act won’t forsake one of their largest fanbases.
Things looked bleak for fans of The Only Band Ever when Alexisonfire announced their split in 2011, and we were hit with bittersweet feels by the time their farewell tour rolled around at the tail end of 2012. With singer Dallas Green focusing on a successful solo career as City and Colour; Wade MacNeil fronting menacing British punks Gallows; George Pettit finding his feet as frontman for the hardcore band Dead Tired; Jordan ”Ratbeard” Hastings picking up the sticks once more for rock trio Say Yes; and Chris Steele embarking on a “spirit quest” that saw him traverse Sri Lanka, India and Nepal, it’s fair to say the members have been keeping themselves busy in their years away.
Whatever their motivation, we’re just stoked to see the boys back at it again. Anyone else up for splurging on a quick trip abroad?
