Alexisonfire just released their first song in ten years, “Familiar Drugs.”

“‘Familiar Drugs’ is about recognizing you need to make a change in your life, being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do,” says vocalist George Pettit about the new song. “It’s about something very specific to me, but it can be taken literally or interpreted in any number of ways. Most people have something in their lives they can’t quit: substances, unhealthy relationships, lethargy, self righteousness, a job they hate. ‘Familiar Drugs’ is about choosing comfort over self-betterment.”

They are also playing a few shows soon.
