Born & Raised is a celebration and homecoming for bandmates Dallas Green, George Pettit, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings. Alexisonfire rose up out of the St. Catharines, Ontario underground in late 2001 with City and Colour’s Platinum certified album Sometimes debuting a few short years later in 2005. AOF released four hugely successful studio albums, all Music Canada Platinum-certified and would go on to define a generation of contemporary music in Canada and abroad. Now back with a vengeance, and on the heels of announcing their first studio album in over 13 years, Otherness, Alexisonfire, in partnership with Dallas Green’s multiple award-winning and critically acclaimed act City and Colour, is bringing the music back to where it all started. Featuring 4 nights of music, food, and drink in the city’s Montebello Park over the July long weekend, Born & Raised is a not-to-be missed concert event.
“Something special happens when Alexisonfire gets together,” says AOF vocalist George Pettit. “When we’re all on stage playing in the pocket, we elevate and the audience comes with us. Born & Raised is going to be a beautiful spectacle. City and Colour and AOF are returning to the very streets that created us, joined by a slew of great bands. Can’t wait.”
Joining Alexisonfire and City and Colour are longtime friends and very special guests, Billy Talent. The concert series also features a stellar line up of support acts including Broken Social Scene, Pup, Sam Roberts Band, Elliott, Hot Water Music, cleopatrick, Ruby Waters, Chastity, Dooms Children, NOBRO and The OBGMs.
