TORONTO – Roughly a year after announcing a “not really” amicable breakup, Juno Award-winning post-hardcore rockers Alexisonfire are planning one final tour.
The band’s former guitarist Wade MacNeil put the news out on Twitter, writing: “Seems like the cat’s out of the bag. Alexisonfire will do one final tour.”
A spokesperson for the band confirmed the news Monday, noting however that details of the tour were still being worked out.
MacNeil, now the frontman for U.K. hardcore act Gallows, added that any Alexisonfire reunion tour wouldn’t conflict with his main act, which has tour dates scheduled throughout July and the fall.
The St. Catharines, Ont., rockers announced their split last August in a lengthy blog post on their website, in which singer George Pettit said the breakup was necessary but not entirely friendly.
He added that fellow singer Dallas Green had informed the rest of the group that he wanted to focus on his Juno-winning City and Colour solo project, and the band decided to dissolve soon afterward.
The band’s rep confirmed Monday that the quintet’s full lineup was expected to take part in the reunion.
