Seminal rock band Alexisonfire has released “Familiar Drugs,” their first new song in almost ten years.
“Familiar Drugs” was produced by the band, long-time friend Karl Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse).
Alexisonfire has announced select headline shows this June kicking off in London, with stops in New York, Los Angeles, and wrapping up in Toronto at Budweiser Stage.
Says vocalist George Pettit about the new track, “‘Familiar Drugs’ is about recognizing 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.”
