Stream The Final Alexisonfire EP “Death Letter”

Last week we told you about Alexisonfire‘s newest and final EP Death Letter. Well, the album was released today, and now you can stream all 6 songs on Spotify. Be prepared though, they are all acoustic, piano, and noise-rock versions of some of your favorite AOF songs, and they are not what you might expect. Each performance is a slow and dismal trudge in a sea of dark reverb, truly signifying the end of a once great band. There is no doubt that Death Letter truly lives up to it’s name as a distant swan song for the Canadian post-hardcore outfit. R.I.P. AOF.

Moneen To Support Alexisonfire For 7 Farewell Tour Dates

In the summer of 2011, Canadian post-hardcore rockers Alexisonfire called it quits after being together for about a decade and developing a loyal international following. The band didn’t quite get to say their goodbyes, though, which is why they are playing one last farewell tour this December. Of course, who better to open for them than fellow Canadians and career-long best friends Moneen? When both bands were starting out, they did a split together and have been buds ever since, so it only seems fitting that Moneen will be joining AOF for seven dates of the tour, all of which can be found here. Supporting acts for the rest of the dates include Billy Talent, Ghost Of A Thousand, House Vs Hurricane, Fucked Up, Monster Truck, and one more still yet to be announced.

Jekyll & Hyde: Rockers And Their Alter Ego Side Projects

It’s always interesting to find out that one of your favorite artists, known for a particular genre, is quite talented in another style of music. Sometimes fans get so used to a person as a specific character fulfilling a familiar role that, at times, it can be a surprise to hear the musician’s alter ego. Often times though, it can be and eye-opening experience, creating crossovers and introducing listeners to a new style of music that they would have otherwise been oblivious to. So, with that in mind, I’d like to acknowledge and pay respect to a few eclectic rockers who have challenged their fanbases with side-projects that are almost polar opposites from their main work. Some you may know, others may surprise you. In the end, you may feel inspired to finally start that pseudo-electronic jazz fusion folk band you’ve been dreaming about for so long.
