Alexisonfire Farewell Tour
2012-07-07 by andcas | 58 Comments
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.

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

Shouldn't have disbanded in the first place. I agree Dallas has a great voice for acoustic songs, but that was selfish of him.
