Canadian post-hardcore heroes Alexisonfire officially came back from a three year long hiatus in 2015 and since then they haven’t release any new material, that is until now anyway.
Today the band have debuted a brand new single called ‘Familiar Drugs’, which acts as the band’s first fresh offering in almost a decade.
Frontman George Pettit expanded further on the track.
“‘Familiar Drugs’ is about recognising you need to make a change in your life, being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do. It’s about something very specific to me but it can be taken literally or interpreted in any number of ways. Most people have something in their lives they can’t quit: substances, unhealthy relationships, lethargy, self righteousness, a job they hate. ‘Familiar Drugs’ is about choosing comfort over self betterment.”

At the time of writing, there’s been no official word as to whether or not the single will feature on a forthcoming EP or album.
