It’s been nine years since we have heard new music from Alexisonfire, after a series of cryptic teasers earlier in the week we have “Familiar Drugs”.
Vocalist George Pettit said “‘Familiar Drugs’ is about recognising you need to make a change in your life, being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do,”.
“It’s about something very specific to me but it can be taken literally or interpreted in any number of ways. Most people have something in their lives they can’t quit: substances, unhealthy relationships, lethargy, self righteousness, a job they hate.
“Familiar Drugs is about choosing comfort over self betterment.”
He also added “Alexisonfire is better now than we ever were – both live and in the studio. We’re excited to explore creatively at the helm of a band which at the same time feels very nostalgic and very current. Looking forward to whatever happens next.”
They’ve also announced a series of shows, including a massive headliner at London’s Alexandra Palace on June 01, 2019. Check out the full list of dates below.
01 – LONDON Alexandra Palace
