|Alexisonfire Farewell Tour|
2012-07-07 by Andrew Caswell | 64 Replies | 3995 Views
Canadian post-hardcore darlings Alexisonfire disbanded on
less than amicable terms last year. After a stellar musical
career they fell on hard times when pivotal member Dallas
Green opted to leave for his side project. In an attempt to
pick up things the remaining friends carried on with big
aspirations for a fifth studio album to blow fans away.
George Pettit would later deliver a devastating letter about
the tough decision to call it a day and end their legacy. It
seemed bleak that a last hurrah would bring much needed
closure anytime in the near future. Fortunately for wishful
thinkers Wade MacNeil has confirmed the group will indeed embark on one final tour.
i will do anything to make it to this
let's be honest city and colour's better anyway
I will be working my ass off to get tickets to this, unless Dallas does not come back for the tour.
I'm praying to (based) god this comes through my city.
i've seen them already but i'll see them again if they swing by
Digging: BT - This Binary Universe
Shitty. Hope they play near me. They'll probably get back together though. I mean if Refused can reunite..
I must get tickets for this.
already missed Thrice, so no way do I want to miss this.
Digging: Deafheaven - Sunbather
well this article isn't biased at all...
its an andcas article what did you expect
don't hate on andcas, yo
sorry but its toolatetogoback now i guess :/
"sorry but its toolatetogoback now i guess :/"
I saw them live once and I was like whatever
Digging: Strictly Ballroom - Hide Here Forever
Awesome....got to get there one last time...
ive seen them multiple times fuck a farewell tour
I will drive to Texas/Kansas/Miss/Arkansas but that's my limit.
well might as well see these guys once
great avi @storm
Digging: Daylight - Jar
i'll keep my fingers crossed for a future reunion.
Digging: Yume Bitsu - Yume Bitsu
Five or six hours is not too far to drive to see them, I'll skip work and shoot my family to see them again.
gracias malleus lawlious
Busy times for Wade then, new Gallows album coming out soon which he has to support with a tour, unless they're the support for this farewell tour.
Digging: Chthonic - Bu-Tik
Seen them twice, will def. see them again if they come to England (more specifically Leeds or London).
Crisis was amazing, everything else was kinda shit.
I'm stoked for the hometown show. Should be nothing less than insanity.
Yeah I hope they put up some UK dates, although I know it wont happen.
Digging: Dark Tranquillity - Zero Distance
Hoping for some UK dates. Really expect a reunion at some point though, so they can make a bad album and we can all complain about how they should've left things as they were.
I saw them on their last tour before the break up and out of the 5 or 6 times I've seen them it was by far the best. Hopefully I'll get to see them on their real last tour now
Digging: Chord Marauders - Groove Booty
@shadow, what's exactly bias about stating simple facts?
Digging: Across Five Aprils - Tragedy in Progress
Sweet but I doubt there will be a Pittsburgh date.
Digging: Harlots - Betrayer
City and Color is better
Digging: The-Dream - IV Play
Mehhh, I only really like his first album.
city and colour is awesome but it doesn't compare to alexisonfire.
I hope this comes to england so much....
Shouldn't have disbanded in the first place. I agree Dallas has a great voice for acoustic songs, but that was selfish of him.
Wacknizzle, you're rocking the best dig I eva saw on this site
I'll have to go to this. They put on a great live show.
Digging: The Black Dahlia Murder - Everblack
Their self titled debut is one of my all time favorites. Band kept going downhill after that
Watch Out rules hard don't even fuck around.
Digging: Rich Homie Quan - Still Goin In
i MUST be there!
"let's be honest city and colour's better anyway"
You can't talk you are the shittiest fucking user on the whole site fuck off please and stay away from Alexisonfire.
Dallas has a great voice....too bad he makes me wanna slice my wrist when it comes to city and colour
Folk? totally comparable to post hardcore
I hope they come to Nova Scotia... but i doubt it.
Lol this article
Digging: Author - Forward Forever
it's awesome how well you and andcas get along haha
Digging: Antlion - Era of Entropy
always makes for a good laugh, MO.
just another wonderful day on sputnik.
This didn't get as bad as the way users came at my Nas article.
I fucking hate this so much. I think I just hate the word darlings. No offense intended Senor Andcas.
no offense taken darling.
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this. I saw that and then looked at who posted this and laughed.
too much la dispute has rotted my brain.
please please please please PLEASE let the Vancouver or Victoria date be after I get home oh my god i need to be there.
finally someone who truly shares my enthusiasm about this event.
I'd like these guys more if their lyrics weren't retarded.
Shut up andy I'm way more pumped.
