ALBUM STREAM: Alexisonfire – ‘Death Letter’ EP


Alexisonfire is coming to its end, much to my dismay. The Canadian post-hardcore band’s (presumed) final release is the aptly titled Death Letter EP. Dallas Green will continue on as City And Colour, with Wade MacNeil now the vocalist of Gallows.

This EP is unusual in that it’s acoustic, and is exclusively Wade and Dallas. No drums (except for one tom on “You Burn First” and some effects on “Burial”), no bass, and no screaming vocals from George Pettit. It’s oddly fitting that a band so heavy is ending on a somber, acoustic note. I will remain by my unfulfilled dreams of another studio album someday and a final American show, but quite truthfully, this seems like a move by the band to put the period at the end of their sentence. It’s called Death Letter, and is a soft, sad release from a band known for their heaviness and anger.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
