Alexisonfire debuted a brand new song, “Familiar Drugs” today. Produced by long-time friend Karl Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse), the impassioned banger marks the first time the band has released new music as Alexisonfire in almost 10 years.
Says George Pettit about the new track, “‘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."
Fans can tune in to the band’s Facebook page today for a special live stream performance from the House of Strombo in Toronto. AOF will perform “Familiar Drugs” for the first time, plus selections from their award-winning catalogue.
