Alexisonfire Are Back, Baby - Jan 11 - HBF Stadium
“This is not a funeral, this is a celebration” were the words Alexisonfire growler George Petit spouted at every ‘Farewell Tour’ show almost 4 years ago. However the “we’re getting’ the ol’ band back together” cliché means the zombie Alexisonfire are breaching our shores this summer. *fistpump*
Alexisonfire are back, baby. After waving goodbye to Australia (ehrm, Melbourne and Sydney) with a pair of killer shows, the Canadian post-hardcore group are “tropical Canada” bound. Although not making new music as of yet, Alexisonfire are without a doubt one of the best post-hardcore live bands, blending chaotic and angular with smooth silk on the reg through a triad of vocalists all bringing their own unique style to the fray. The band were at the forefront of the genre with several ground breaking albums moving from music best described as “the sound of two catholic schoolgirls mid knife fight” to more progressive spacious music before making a move toward more traditional hardcore with their last EP.
Alexisonfire are playing HBF arena in Perth on January 11 with compatriot rock’n’rollers The Dirty Nil and tickets are available NOW here.
