Alexisonfire fans will likely already have heard or read about the fact that the band is apparently back together. Announced (among other places, no doubt) near the end of their set at Riot Fest in Toronto (and reported to me by my brother, who was in attendance), the 'comeback' may not end up meaning much -- as the guys have said today on their Facebook.
Still, longtime fans of The Only Band Ever like yours truly will take any reunion news we can get. Being more of a fan of AOF's older material, I'm less excited about the prospect of a new album (though that would be cool) than I am about the prospect of catching Alexisonfire at a local show again. It's been a while since they're hit K-Town, but they used to stop semi-regularly back in The Day, so there's still hope.
To that end, you're getting a celebratory Alexisonfire song today. But in the interest of fairness, I'm going to go with something a little more late-era in the form of "The Northern" from 2009's Old Crows/Young Cardinals. Turn it up and enjoy.
