BrooklynVegan has teamed up with Ontario post-hardcore heroes Alexisonfire for our first-ever special edition magazine and exclusive vinyl pressings.
Crisis is pressed on special Black/White Marble vinyl limited to only 500 copies, and comes with the BrooklynVegan special $20-value, 80-page magazine with album matched die-cut cover.
The 80-page magazine, written by BrooklynVegan editor Andrew Sacher, features a die cut cover with a color-matched AOF Heart Skull logo printed on vellum, and tells the career-spanning story of Alexisonfire, from their formation to their swift rise in popularity to their breakup to their reunion, with deep dives into every album from their 2002 self-titled debut through their 2022 comeback album Otherness. It features new, exclusive interviews with all five band members (George Pettit, Dallas Green, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings), as well as members of Hot Water Music, Fucked Up, Rise Against, Moneen, Boys Night Out, Sum 41, Billy Talent, and more.
After helping define the sound of the early 2000s post-hardcore boom on their first two albums, Alexisonfire's third album Crisis (2006) pushed them into new territory. They embraced the influence of grittier bands like their recent tourmates Hot Water Music and Planes Mistaken For Stars--the latter's Gared O'Donnell sings guest lead on vocals on "You Burn First"--they wrote more anthemic choruses than ever, and they had a more direct, structured sound, aided in part by new drummer Jordan Hastings. It helped elevate them from a band in a scene to a band in a lane of their own, and it deservingly remains a fan favorite amongst diehards and casual listeners alike to this day.
All five AOF studio albums are also available in a limited-to-1000 box set (with different color vinyl, a live album, a print, magazine & more) and individually (on black/white marble vinyl, limited to 500 copies each, and bundled with the version of the magazine whose cover art matches the album it's packaged with).
