ALEXISONFIRE premiers video for “The Northern” on NME.com.eml

ALEXISONFIRE’s new video “The Northern” debuted today on NME.com (http://www.nme.com/home#videobox). The Michael Maxxis-directed clip was filmed in December and the song is from the band’s fourth studio album, Old Crows/Young Cardinals.

The St. Catharines, Ontario-based rock group–DALLAS GREEN (vocalist/guitarist), JORDAN HASTINGS (drummer), WADE MACNEIL (guitarist/vocalist), GEORGE PETTIT (vocalist) and CHRIS STEELE (bassist) — was recently invited to perform during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver on February 16. The band’s future plans include upcoming Australian festival dates and an extensive Canadian national tour in March (see current dates below).

“Alexisonfire’s Old Crows/Young Cardinals marks a major policy shift… …Pettit has traded his trademark shrieking for a gargling-with-gravel punk attack. It sounds like all those summers hanging at the cottage with Lemmy Kilmister and Lars Frederiksen finally made him realize there’s more than one way to blow out your vocal cords. That makes Old Crows/Young Cardinals a welcome reinvention, no matter how much you loved to shred your larynx by singing along to ‘Pulmonary Archery.’ “ –Mike Usinger, ALTERNATIVE PRESS (July 2009 issue)
