Personally, the thought of a late November/early December tour gives me the shivers, but if there’s any band out there that can heat things up it’s the only band ever, Alexisonfire.
The band has announced a Canadian tour throughout late fall that will take them from Victoria on November 26th all the way to Toronto on December 16th. The tour will be their first headlining tour across Canada in support of last year’s gold-selling Old Crows/Young Cardinals album.
Tickets for the shows will go on sale tomorrow at the band’s website. Fans can upgrade to a VIP package that includes a meet and greet with the band, early entry to the show, a limited edition signed poster, and a laminate badge.
Support on the tour will come from Norma Jean, La Dispute and Four Year Strong.
Alexisonfire will also be releasing some new music to tide fans over until the next album. Later this year they’ll drop a four-song EP called Dog’s Blood, and on September 28th you can buy an iTunes Originals session, which features “interview clips of the band members reflecting on their career and revealing the inspirations behind their songs, along with album tracks and new live versions of some of their most popular songs.”
