It’s been nearly a decade since Canadian post-hardcore icons Alexisonfire last released new music. In that time, the band has broken up in 2011, played a farewell tour the following year, and then reunited in 2015, continuing to play festival dates while repeatedly emphasizing that they were taking things slowly, with no immediate plans for new music.

Being progressive metalcore, fans already know to expect a mixture of harsh and clean vocals, some bouncy riffs and some breakdowns throughout, but the question is: what separates The Healing from their contemporaries? Quite simply, it’s the talent these guys have combined with how well everything is executed. For a debut record, these guys did one hell of a job and definitely need some more recognition, hence why we decided to chat with them. Give them a like on Facebook and pick up the album or some merch on Bandcamp!
