Alexisonfire released a new song, "Season of the Flood". A seductive, hypnotic, 7-minute slow-burner anchored by haunting 3-part harmonies and heavy reverb-filled guitars, the song notably features AOF's George Pettit singing off the top for the first time. The track comes on the heels of "Familiar Drugs" and "Complicit," released last year and marking the first time the band released new music in almost 10 years.
"I'm very proud of this new song," says Pettit. "There were some first time attempts for us and we all really came together in the studio to make this song what it is. This was also my first time singing with Dallas on a song. I know I've been playing in a band with Dal for almost 20 years, but damn, that guy's voice could melt an angel."
The song was produced by AOF long-time friend, the late Karl "Horse" Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy Award-winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse). The album cover and 10" package feature many personal nods honoring Karl as the song is the last of a trilogy of tracks Bareham produced for the band.
