Alexisonfire have announced the support acts for their headlining dates this summer. Each of the bands were chosen by the band with frontman George Pettit offering the the below commentary on them.
If you’ve yet to see it, Alexisonfire debuted a video for their recent comeback track “Familiar Drugs” earlier today, you can check that out here.
“Angel Du$t – Someone once described Angel Du$t to me as, “if a hardcore band did the “There’s Something About Mary” soundtrack”. In other words, totally sick.
Chastity – The best thing to come out of the Durham region since…since…..hmmmm…
Child’s Pose– Awesome new post-punk band from the UK. Came highly recommended by Jonah Falco of Fucked Up.
Drug Church – Never met these guys but I love their music and I’m more than happy that bands that are much cooler than AOF are willing to play shows with us.
Glassjaw: AOF opened for them at the Opera House in Toronto in 2002. It took a couple years but we are returning the favour.
Moneen: Moneen is the Sigfried to Alexisonfire’s Roy…which one got attacked by the tiger? That one is Moneen.
Quicksand: Heros of ours from the days when they played interesting music on late night television. Post hardcore legends in the flesh.
The Dirty Nil – Luke once brought me bacon back when he worked at a butcher…bacon bribes is a good way to get an opening slot on an AOF show. True story.”
