Today, multi-platinum post-hardcore luminaries Alexisonfire announce their return to Toronto’s Budweiser Stage for one night only on Friday, June 16, 2023. Joining AOF as direct support are their good pals, punk rock heroes PUP and the uncompromising METZ. An artist presale begins Tuesday, January 24 at 10:00am ET via Ticketmaster HERE. General Public on-sale commences Friday, January 27 at 10:00am ET with tickets available via Ticketmaster HERE.
The band last performed two back-to-back nights at the iconic venue in 2019, days after the Toronto Raptors won their first NBA Championship. The team’s beloved mascot surprised the crowd on night two, hitting the stage ahead of Alexisonfire. In case you missed it, check out this short, electric backstage clip of “The Raptor” introducing the band to the jubilant, sold-out crowd.
Alexisonfire recently released Otherness, their long-anticipated and first full-length album in over 13 years. Otherness is arguably the band’s most cohesive and self-actualized record to date, featuring impassioned anthems with earnest and deeply heartfelt lyrics and impeccable vocal and musical performances from the revered 5-piece. Otherness debuted at #2 on the Top 20 album chart and the band’s single “Sans Soleil” hit #2 at Rock Radio in Canada. The record features 10 original songs including the explosive first single, “Sweet Dreams Of Otherness”, previously released banger “Reverse The Curse”, “Mistaken Information”, and the hauntingly beautiful “Sans Soleil”.
Alexisonfire rose up out of the Southern Ontario underground in late 2001 to become one of the most successful indie bands to come out of Canada. The band has sold over 1 million records and released five hugely successful studio albums, with four achieving Platinum-certification: Alexisonfire (2002), Watch Out (2004), Crisis (2006), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009). Crisis debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan (Canada), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals debuted at #2, and charted at #9 on the US Billboard Independent Album chart. Watch Out helped garner a New Group of the Year JUNO (2004). The band has performed to hundreds of thousands of fans on iconic stages worldwide, and graced notable music magazine covers internationally. Their long-anticipated and first full-length album in over 13 years, Otherness, was released earlier this year to international acclaim.
