Published May 24, 2019Canadian noisemakers Alexisonfire have just released a brand new single titled "Complicit."
The song follows "Familiar Drugs," which arrived earlier this year and marked the band's first new material in 10 years.
The new track hears the five-piece reflecting on their privilege and pushing back against non-inclusivity.
"'Complicit' is about recognizing the unfair advantages that we are afforded as white, heterosexual males," frontman George Pettit said in a statement. "It's about rejecting regressionist ideas of racism, misogyny and hetero supremacy. It's about accepting that there is no freedom and no future in a world that is not inclusive."
In addition to the song's digital release, "Complicit" has been treated to a physical release on 7-inch vinyl, both in black and limited-edition translucent red wax. It's available to order here.

Alexisonfire play Toronto on June 16 at the Budweiser stage and on July 12 at the Ottawa's RBC Bluesfest. See all the band's upcoming live dates here.
