Alexisonfire have premiered a new song titled “Familiar Drugs.” This is the band’s first track in nearly 10 years.
Vocalist George Pettit commented:
“‘Familiar Drugs‘ is about recognizing 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.”
A seven-inch vinyl pressing of “Familiar Drugs” with a laser-etched b-side is available for pre-order HERE. It’s worth noting that a limited edition glow-in-the-dark variant will be randomly inserted throughout the entire pressing.
In other news, the band have also announced several headlining shows. $1 from each ticket sold will go towards Indspire to benefit indigenous students. Here’s the dates:
