Having just wrapped up a handful of reunion festival appearances this summer (including Reading/Leeds Festival) following the announcement of their break-up in August 2011 and a slew of farewell shows in 2012, Canadian post-hardcore legends Alexisonfire announced on-stage during their set at Riot Fest in Toronto last night that they have officially returned. You can watch a short fan-shot video of the announcement, made by guitarist Wade MacNeil, via the embed below:
“Thank you for believing in this band when we couldn’t even believe in this band. Thank you for sticking with us. We promise to never leave you again. No more sentimental shit. Alexisonfire is officially back.”
Along with the above announcement on-stage, MacNeil also posted the following tweet shortly after their set at Riot Fest wrapped up.
YES TORONTO. TEN MORE YEARS. #AOF2025
