Last August, Alexisonfire called it quits. Most of the members now have personal lives that interfered far to much for them to be a constant member of the band and some have moved on to work with other bands, so it was time for them to end after nearly ten years. The band had previously talked about doing a farewell tour, going out with a bang, and now they are doing just that. According to the band, December is the only month that all of the members are available to hit the road, so that’s when this will kick off.
After the jump you can read a blurb from the band and check out the tour dates for this tour. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Godspeed, Alexisonfire and good luck.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get on the road and travel and hit the stage one last time – most importantly we wanted to keep our promise to you guys. We’re going to be playing till the venues try to kick us off the stage. We’re talking 20+ songs a night. We said we’d return for some proper farewell shows. And here they are. A little later today we will post details about presales etc. but for now….here are the shows.”
