Listen to first new Alexisonfire song in a decade, "Familiar Drugs"

Credit: Vanessa HeinsAlexisonfire is back with a new song for the first time in nearly 10 years. The track is called "Familiar Drugs," and is available now for digital download.

"Familiar Drugs" is the first track from the Canadian post-hardcore rockers since reuniting in 2015 after breaking up three years earlier.

"'Familiar Drugs' is about recognizing you need to make a change in your life," says vocalist George Pettit. "Being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do."

To celebrate the new single, Alexisonfire will play a trio of North American dates later this year, taking place June 8 in New York City, June 13 in Los Angeles and June 15 in Toronto. Tickets go on sale next Friday, February 22 at 10 a.m. local time via the band's website,

Alexisonfire's most recent album is 2009's Old Crows/Young Cardinals.
