Alexisonfire Reveal 'iTunes Session' 12-inch, Gear Up for Box Set
Published Dec 17, 2012Tonight (December 17) marks the beginning of Alexisonfire's Canadian stretch of their farewell tour, which kicks off at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum. As previously reported, there's been a slew of releases issued around the screamo vets' last hurrah, and up next is an iTunes Originals vinyl 12-inch.
It was previously teased that the 2010 live set would figure on an upcoming box set, but a press release now confirms that it will be available on its own at the troupe's merch table throughout the trip.
While the original digital release paired some previously released album cuts with live-in-the-studio takes of "You Burn First," "Boiled Frogs" and more, the new wax pressing will feature nothing but the six exclusive tracks. A download code featuring interview clips with the band will also come with the release. If you can't make it out to the shows, you can pre-order the limited-edition LP over here.
The pre-order for the box set, meanwhile, will go up in January. As previously noted, it will include all of the band's LPs, plus Math Sheet Demos, some Crisis bonus tracks, Insulation Tapes, BBC Sessions and more.
Alexis six-stringer Dallas Green is also getting into the limited-edition wax game with holiday-themed red and green vinyl pressings of his City and Colour's Little Hell, Bring Me Your Love, and Sometimes LPs. You can order the records, limited to 300 copies each, over here.
