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. And with Dallas Green’s City and Colour project finding more success than ever, many fans have had little hope that new music would ever arrive.
We’re only at the half of 2017, but still quite a few things have happened this year, so let’s have a look at what got everyone talking so far.
Some call it quits, some come back :
After we tragically lost some of the most iconic rockstars over the last two years (Lemmy, B.B. King, Prince, David Bowie, …), this year has been marked by announcements from many bands which are putting their career to an end.
– The Dillinger Escape Plan : Mathcore titans released their final effort, Dissociation, and are set to play their last show ever in October, after a tour that’s running since the end of 2016. These guys are always hitting the road, and we wish them the best in their upcoming projects !
