Alexisonfire recently released Otherness, their longanticipated and first fulllength album in over 13 years.
Otherness is arguably the band’s most cohesive and selfactualized record to date, featuring impassioned anthems
with earnest and deeply heartfelt lyrics and impeccable vocal and musical performances from the revered 5piece.
Otherness debuted at #2 on the
Top 20 album chart and the band’s single “Sans Soleil” hit #2 at Rock Radio in
Canada. The record features 10 original songs including the explosive first single,
Sweet Dreams Of Otherness,
previously released banger
Reverse The Curse”, “Mistaken Information”, and the hauntingly beautiful Sans
What the press is saying about Otherness:

“Their Greatest Record to date…” Rocksound

“more melody and rocket fuel than ever before…the band conjures the best essence of ‘90s majorlabel grunge and textured
shoegaze that makes them the coolest guys in the room with the best record collections…” SPIN

“blistering verses and a melodic chorus, with a rapid pace that never lets up.” Consequence

“slowburning, head nodinducing pace, powered by sharp percussion and churning guitars reverberating throughout…”

“AOF didn’t come back to recreate their early sound. They started experimenting with longer songs and more ambitious
arrangements…” Brooklyn Vegan

Otherness is arguably the most representatively hardhitting and confident channelling of Alexisonfire’s stage show the band
has ever put to tape.” Toronto Star

“Alexisonfire have returned as the band their fans have always loved and they sound as inspired and invigorated as ever.”
Alexisonfire rose up out of the Southern Ontario underground in late 2001 to become one of the most successful
indie bands to come out of Canada. The band has sold over 1 million records and released five hugely successful
studio albums, with four achieving Platinumcertification: Alexisonfire (2002), Watch Out (2004), Crisis (2006), and
Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009). Crisis debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan (Canada), and Old Crows /
Young Cardinals debuted at #2, and charted at #9 on the US Billboard Independent Album chart. Watch Out helped
garner a New Group of the Year JUNO (2004). The band has performed to hundreds of thousands of fans on iconic
stages worldwide, and graced notable music magazine covers internationally. Their longanticipated and first full
length album in over 13 years, Otherness, was released earlier this year to international acclaim.
