Whether it was hello, goodbye (again) or something in between, it was an absolute blast to witness Alexisonfire back on stage in Melbourne.
But will they drop ‘Sandstorm’?
“There really is a sense of camaraderie found at Unify that’s different to other festivals”
“I don’t want to take our fans for granted because we’re lucky that, even in places like Australia, our shows have been so incredible for so long.”
Their first Aussie shows since 2012.
And it’s bloody massive.
Alexisonfire may have said they were back together 4 realz and would never hurt us again, but it turns out those jerks were just telling us what we wanted to hear. Despite guitarist Wade MacNeil proclaiming his love for us live at Canada’s riot fest over the weekend… “Thank you for believing in this band
Alexisonfire know they done you wrong, but they’re back together now, OK babe? And they’re never gonna hurt you again. That’s a promise babe. They’ve changed, and they’re gonna b 2getha 4eva. Despite already reuniting and touring together following a four-year hiatus, the Canadian post-hardcore legends have just put a ring on it, so to
The Soundwave festival has come a long way from its humble origins as a one-day-only event on the far side of Australia. Since debuting in Perth all the way back in ’04, Soundwave has watched other music festivals come and go while it surged on to become one of the most anticipated annual music events
Canadian post-hardcore legends Alexisonfire are officially back in business, bringing an end to a three year hiatus this past weekend by putting on a set packed full with fan-favourites at Heavy Montreal Festival. The band’s classic line-up – so that’s George Pettit, Chris Steele, Wade MacNeil, Dallas Green and Jordan ‘Ratbeard’ Hastings – took the
After yesterday teasing fans with hints of a possible reunion, Canadian post-hardcore legends Alexisonfire have today made it official, unveiling a run of international tour and festival dates, which do not include Australia as yet. The band first announced their breakup in August of 2011, and haven’t performed together since their 2012 farewell tour. But
Alexisonfire announced their break-up way back in 2011, and toured Australia on their last tour at the end of 2012. But it seems that something is brewing within their camp in 2015, proving you just can’t keep a good band down. On Twitter, the band’s lead-guitarist Wade McNeil directed fans to Alexisonfire’s new Instagram page
This show would have to be the ultimate definition of bittersweet. Much like going to see a dying relative for the last time, only a lot less dramatic – but you know what I mean. For the past 10 years, Alexisonfire have been guiding me and many others like me through all the trials and
The moment many of us have been waiting for has finally come. City And Colour have announced that their (his?) soon-to-be-released album is done and dusted, just in time for the Alexisonfire tour. Of course the highly successful spin-off for Alexisonfire’s clean vocalist Dallas Green – what we assume will be a 2013 release –
Almost exactly one year since the members of Alexisonfire announced their break-up, the band have decided to reunite for one more farewell tour to celebrate their 10th anniversary. They’ll be visiting a limited number of countries, including the UK, Brazil, Canada and, lucky for us, Australia. Their split came after four studio records and a
It’s been almost a year since Music Feeds reported on the break up of popular hardcore band Alexisonfire. The split came after four studio records and a decade of rocking together, and was due to Alexisonfire guitarist and vocalist Dallas Green’s increasingly time-consuming side project City & Colour, as well as bandmate Wade Macneil’s decision
British hardcore set Gallows have moved very quickly to appoint a new frontman, with the band recruiting former Alexisonfire singer and guitarist Wade MacNeil. The news comes courtesy of Kerrang!, who quote MacNeil as saying,”Gallows are one of my favourite bands, so when Steph [Carter, guitar] called me the day after Sonisphere, I said yes
Canadian Post-hardcore band Alexisonfire have called it quits. Frontman George Pettit has posted a statement on the band’s official website stating: “There is no good way to put it so I’m just going to say it. After 10 years, Alexisonfire has decided to part ways.”
I think we’ve reached that stage where we can stop referring to City and Colour as just the “side project for Alexisonfire’s Dallas Green”. City and Colour deserves to stand alone on its own merits, not simply for the fact that it is in contrast to Alexisonfire’s post hardcore sound but because on this, the
