ALEXISONFIRE DEBUTS NEW SONG "SEASON OF THE FLOOD''
ALEXISONFIRE is starting 2020 with a bang. The band has just released a new song, “Season Of The Flood”, available to stream and purchase HERE.
A seductive, hypnotic, seven-minute slow-burner anchored by haunting three-part harmonies and heavy reverb-filled guitars, the song notably features AOF’s George Pettit singing off the top for the first time. The track comes on the heels of “Familiar Drugs” and “Complicit” released last year, marking the first time the band released new music in almost 10 years.
''I’m very proud of this new song,” says Pettit. “There were some first time attempts for us and we all really came together in the studio to make this song what it is. This was also my first time singing with Dallas on a song. I know I’ve been playing in a band with Dal for almost 20 years, but damn, that guy’s voice could melt an angel.”
"Season Of The Flood" is now available on vinyl by pre-order through the band's website, theonlybandever.com. The limited pressing is available as a single-sided standard black 10” vinyl with a laser-etched b-side. A limited edition white variant will be randomly inserted throughout the stock quantities of black vinyl. Along with the 10” vinyl, AOF will have a new online exclusive “Season Of The Flood” inspired t-shirt for sale, designed by graphic artist Jeremy Dean, best known for his “Wonders of Black Flag” prints. This T-shirt is part of a collection of Jeremy Dean x Alexisonfire merchandise items inspired by the songs, "Familiar Drugs", "Complicit" and now "Season Of The Flood" with cover art design once again by Nick Steinhardt.
The song was produced by AOF long-time friend, the late Karl “Horse” Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse). The album cover and 10” package features many personal nods honouring Karl as the song is the last of a trilogy of tracks Bareham produced for the band.
