Alexisonfire releases new single 'Season of the Flood'

Alexisonfire's 'Season of the Flood'

Alexisonfire has released a brand-new song by the name of Season of the Flood.

Though the track was not initially released by the Canadian post-hardcore band, it was premiered by British radio presenter Daniel P. Carter on Sunday through BBC Radio 1’s weekly Rock Show.

The nearly seven-minute track retains a consistently moody tone, which is carried by both its brooding lyrics and bass-driven riffs.

Rather than just one singer, Season of the Flood features vocals by Dallas Green, Wade MacNeil and George Pettit.

It’s the band’s first release since Familiar Drugs and Complicit, which dropped in 2019 and served as the first Alexisonfire singles in nine years.

Over the last week, the beloved band has been posting cryptic videos to both Instagram and Twitter, potentially hinting at the single.

Season of the Flood was released officially by the band on Tuesday, Feb. 14. It’s now available through all major streaming platforms.

As of this writing, it’s unclear if Alexisonfire is working on a followup to its fourth and most recent album, Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009).
