Alexisonfire Set Summer Release


04/24/2009
.
(Vagrant) Alexisonfire have announced they'll release their fourth studio album Old Crows/Young Cardinals June 23 on Vagrant Records.

For the new album, the St. Catharines, Ontario-based rock group re-teamed with Julius "Juice" Butty (Protest the Hero, City and Colour) to produce. Even more intense and focused than before, the sound here is bracingly rhythmic, shot through with a do-or-die vocal urgency and sharp harmonies.

"Old Crows/Young Cardinals was built on the foundation of Crisis, musically it moves at a feverish pace," explains singer Pettit. "The lyrics span from metaphysical rebellion, to living as a nomad. This album is the culmination of the history of our band. Personally, I feel it is our best record yet, but you get to be the judge of that."

In early June, Alexisonfire will head to Germany for the Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festivals. Next up, they'll hit London for a three-night sold-out stand at Borderline. Late June, the group will perform on the entire Vans Warped Tour 2009 (June 26-August 23), joining NOFX, 3Oh!3, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, TSOL, Underoath and many more on the annual punk rock extravaganza which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.
