Alexisonfire teasing big announcement, possibly a reunion

It’s been nearly four years since Alexisonfire decided to call it a day, but it seems 2015 just might be the year they get back in the saddle. The band posted the cryptic image seen above on their Instagram page earlier today. The picture which features their logo and the date 03/09/2015 was captioned #AOF2015, and it has since popped up on the band’s Facebook page, as well as the page for guitarist Dallas Green’s project City and Colour.

Obviously, this has sent the band’s fans into a frenzy of wild speculation, with most assuming it means the band will either be reuniting, or releasing a new record. But nothing is confirmed, so we’ll just have to wait ’til the AOF guys make whatever announcement they’re gonna make on March 9th.

“This record is a study in contrasts; light and darkness, flame and flood, true love and senseless hatred. What does it mean to ‘carry the fire’ when it so often seems like there is no light or warmth to be found at all? This is the question woven through the fabric of these ten songs.”

Dustin Kensrue (Thrice) heading to the studio to record and self-produce new album

Dustin Kensrue, formerly of Thrice, recently announced that he will be heading to the studio to begin recording a new album. Kensrue will be engineering and producing the new work himself, with an expected release date of next Spring through Staple Records / Vagrant Records.

Here’s what Dustin had to say about the upcoming work,

Recording right now is for me the end of a long distilling process. I always have bits and pieces of songs that are bouncing around in my head. I usually record them and listen back later, and most of the time I can’t remember why I even bothered to record them in the first place. But then there are the tunes that stick – the ones I find running over and over through my head, demanding to be finished. Begging for a home. The most persistent of these tunes from the past 8 years are what I’m busy recording right now, and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing.

Thrice released their latest studio record, “Major/Minor” September of 2011 on Vagrant Records, before doing a farewell tour and going on indefinite hiatus.
