Two months ago Canadian post-hardcore quintet Alexisonfire issued a single titled “Familiar Drugs,” the band’s first new song in almost a decade. Today the group have released a new music video for said track via Consequence of Sound.
Lead guitarist Wade MacNeil had this to say about the video: “Everything came together really fast. Maxxis (the director) flew into Toronto with a crew of four people, found the plainest room he could and shot us on VHS tape and cellphones in a day. We were all really drawn to the vibe of old punk documentaries and videos from the ’70s and ’80s. We asked for a lo-fi, no bullshit performance video and that’s what he delivered.”
