Alexisonfire to undertake a farewell tour this summer

Canadian punks had announced their split earlier this year

Alexisonfire have confirmed that they will be undertaking one final tour this summer.

The band parted ways earlier this year after guitarists Dallas Green and Wade MacNeil both announced their intention to leave the group. Green left to concentrate on his folk-project City And Colour, while MacNeil has replaced Frank Carter as the frontman of Gallows.

The group released their self-titled debut album in 2002 and went on to release three more studio LPs – ‘Watch Out!’, ‘Crisis’ and their final LP, 2009’s ‘Old Crows/Young Cardinals’.

MacNeil revealed the band’s plans to tour once more, tweeting on Friday: “Seems like the cats out of the bag. Alexisonfire will do one final tour. In no way will this impact Gallows. Our new record is out in a few months and it will rip your face off.”

No details of the tour or which countries it will take in have been confirmed as yet, but full details are expected to be announced in due course.
