Early this morning, Alexisonfire released "Familiar Drugs", the band’s first new song in almost ten years. The track was produced by the band, longtime friend Karl Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy Award-winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse).
A special vinyl pressing is available for pre-order today starting at 10:00 a.m. EST as a single-sided seven-inch vinyl with a laser-etched b-side. A limited-edition glow-in-the-dark variant will be randomly inserted throughout the entire pressing of black vinyl stock. Along with the seven-inch, Alexisonfire will have new "Familiar Drugs"-inspired merchandise on their official site.
Tune in to the band's Facebook page tonight for a special live stream performance from the House Of Strombo in Toronto. Alexisonfire will perform "Familiar Drugs" for the first time along with selections from its award-winning catalogue.
