Alexisonfire Premiere “Mistaken Information” Music Video

Alexisonfire have premiered a new video for their song “Mistaken Information.” That track is from the band’s latest album “Otherness.”

Muted Windows created the clip and had the following to say about it:

“It was a wonderful experience to create the video for ‘Mistaken Information’ for the incredible Alexisonfire. We appreciate how receptive they were to the concept after listening to the song – immediately feeling a sort of hypnotic tone. The video is abstract in nature and much more about feeling.”

Director Nedda Afsari added:

“I love working on all-encompassing projects, making videos that tie into photos for album art. Michael E. Linn shot tons of footage for the album photo shoot and knew we wanted to incorporate that into ‘Mistaken Information.’ We created a deja vu world where dreams blend with reality, and nothing is certain.”

Alexisonfire Premiere New Song “Sans Soleil”

Alexisonfire have premiered a new song titled “Sans Soleil.” You can find a stream of the track along with a video of the band discussing it below. The song will appear on their new album “Otherness,” which is set to be released on June 24. Vocalist George Pettit commented:

“Wade came in with the lyrics for this song around the same time he had been working on the Dooms Children record and I feel like it shows. The Dooms Children album touched on a lot of things extremely personal to Wade and this song is definitely in that vein.”

Guitarist Wade MacNeil added:

“This song is about hanging onto hope during the heaviest times. Healing and letting go. Dreaming of a future where all this hurt is behind you.”

Alexisonfire Premiere New Song “Reverse The Curse”

Alexisonfire have premiered a new song titled “Reverse The Curse.” You can find a stream of the track along with a video of the band discussing it below. The song will appear on their new album “Otherness,” which is set to be released on June 24. Vocalist George Pettit commented:

“Some riffs stick around for a while until they make sense. ‘Reverse The Curse‘ has existed in one form or another since ‘Crisis‘. There was even a version that we used as the original ‘Young Cardinals‘ but that one wasn’t meant to be. It found its way to creation during our covid rehearsals and I’m glad it’s finally coming to light.”

Alexisonfire To Release New Album “Otherness” In June, Premiere “Sweet Dreams Of Otherness” Music Video

Alexisonfire will be releasing a new album, titled “Otherness,” on June 24. A video for the effort’s first single, “Sweet Dreams Of Otherness,” can be found below:

Vocalist George Pettit commented:

“This song was largely Dallas‘ brain child, but over the course of writing this record, it became more of a mission statement for the band. It’s kind of about performance and embracing a new found confidence in a state of peculiarity.”

“As much as we love playing the old songs, we don’t want to be a nostalgia act. The only reason to come back is if we feel we still have something to say. We spent so much time on the road thinking that if we stopped, people would lose interest. But when we went away, it only got bigger. We all carved new paths for ourselves, so coming back to Alexisonfire is a purely enjoyable creative venture. Something special happens when we get in a room together.”

Guitarist/vocalist Wade MacNeil added:

“The biggest difference is the space we are all in. We were all really thrilled to make a record, and it was such a respite from what was going on in the world. It felt like life could be beautiful. We were supportive of one another. Everyone was in such a good mood. It was such a treat to be able to do it again.”

“Otherness” Track Listing:

01. “Committed To The Con”
02. “Sweet Dreams Of Otherness”
03. “Sans Soleil”

06. “Dark Night Of The Soul”

Alexisonfire To Donate Earnings From “Complicit” To Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Black Lives Matter Toronto, & Black Youth Pathway To Industry

Alexisonfire have announced that they will be donating the money they earned from their single “Complicit” to charity. The funds will go towards the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Black Lives Matter Toronto, and Black Youth Pathway.

The group commented:

“Alexisonfire have had a lot of discussions as to what our response should be to George Floyd’s murder and larger discussions of racial inequality both here and abroad.

Last year we released a single called ‘Complicit’. The song is about wanting to be an ally to people fighting for equality but at the same time, recognizing that regardless of how pure our intentions may be, we are complicit. We have benefited from a system that is inherently stacked in our favour: a system of racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia.

Alexisonfire acknowledges that the first step of recognition is meaningless without action. We’ve decided to donate $11,843.84 — all money (we) earned from the sale of the single, ‘Complicit’, along with any associated merchandise to Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Black Lives Matter Toronto and Black Youth Pathway To Industry

The five members of this band stand steadfast, yet imperfect, in our commitment to be better allies.

Smash the pillars of the white hetero patriarchy until the ruins are sand.

Love always,

G”
