Monday 23 January 2017
ALEXISONFIRE is coming together to perform at the The Powerstation in Auckland on Monday January 23, 2017, the band’s first New Zealand headline show in 10 years.
One of the most important acts to emerge from Canada’s underground music scene in the early 2000s, Alexisonfire released four hugely successful and critically acclaimed albums between 2002 and 2009, amassing a legion of devoted fans across the world. The band’s self-titled debut dropped in 2002 followed by 2004’s WATCH OUT, 2006’s CRISIS and OLD CROWS/YOUNG CARDINALS in 2009. They have since released limited edition vinyl box sets along with the album, LIVE AT COPPS featuring the final show of their 2012 10-year anniversary run, recorded on their home turf in Ontario.
Multi-award winners Alexisonfire has topped sales charts across North America and achieved a Top 20 ARIA Chart debut in Australia with 2009’s OLD CROWS/YOUNG CARDINALS. The band has multiple Gold and Platinum albums under their belt, have graced the covers of some of the world’s most respected music magazines including Kerrang!, Blunt Magazine and Big Cheese, and have taken in main stage slots at some of the world’s premier music festivals, from the UK’s Reading and Leeds to Riot Fest (US + Canada), Fuji Rock Festival (Japan), Soundwave Festival and more.
Alexisonfire will hold no prisoners upon touching down in New Zealand next year, delivering their trademark explosive sets to fans and once again demonstrating exactly why they’re one of the most important bands to emerge from the 2000s. Put this one in the diary and get in quickly, as tickets are sure to be snapped up fast!
