ALEXISONFIRE is set to officially release a fan-fuelled video for “Season of the Flood” today at 11:00am AEST via YouTube HERE.
The video is notably comprised of footage shot exclusively by AOF concert-goers in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. During the band’s January 2020 Western Canadian tour, fans were encouraged to shoot footage of the live performance of “Season of the Flood” from their mobile devices and submit it to the band. Earlier this week, Alexisonfire sent the finished video to everyone who submitted footage, ensuring their fans were the first to give their collective work a proper global debut ahead of today’s public premiere.
The premiere will be followed by a very special, one-time ‘watch party’ of Alexisonfire: Live At Copps, originally filmed on December 30, 2012 at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario, on the Alexisonfire Youtube channel. Members of the band will join fans worldwide in conversation throughout the concert which features 24 songs first featured on the Alexisonfire: Live at Copps 4 LP release. Streaming beginsHEREat 11:15am AEST. In addition, four more live videos –“Accidents”, “Young Cardinals” and “Sons of Privilege + Control” – will be released on May 18 featuring footage from December 29, 2012, the last of four incredible sold-out shows that Alexisonfire performed at Sound Academy in Toronto.
“Season of the Flood” is a seductive, hypnotic, seven-minute slow-burner anchored by haunting three-part harmonies and heavy reverb-filled guitars produced by AOF long-time friend, the late Karl “Horse” Bareham (City and Colour), and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse). The track comes on the heels of “Familiar Drugs”and “Complicit”released last year, marking the first time the band released new music in almost 10 years. “Season of the Flood” is available to stream and purchase via DSPsHERE. An official video for single “Familiar Drugs” directed by Michael Maxxis (who directed AOF’s personal favourite video for “The Northern” and City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird”, “Thirst”, and “Lover Come Back”) is available to watchHERE.
