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.
But today, the band has posted cryptic teasers on their social media, uploading black profile pictures and even wiping all the photos from their Instagram. This follows an interview vocalist/guitarist Dallas Green did back in December, where he said that with the current political climate in America, now feels like “the perfect time” for new Alexisonfire music. Will fans finally get the triumphant return they’ve been dreaming of? Stay tuned.
