For their new album-- out on June 23 on Vagrant Records (U.S.A.) and on Dine Alone and RoadRunner in the rest of the world--ALEXISONFIRE re-teamed with Julius Butty who also produced the group’s Crisis and Watch Out! discs.

OLD CROWS / YOUNG CARDINALS--the group’s fourth studio album and first in almost three years--is beginning to receive early acclaim.

Check out a few critical soundbites here:

“Alexisonfire’s Old Crows/Young Cardinals marks a major policy shift… …Pettit has traded his trademark shrieking for a gargling-with-gravel punk attack. It sounds like all those summers hanging at the cottage with Lemmy Kilmister and Lars Frederiksen finally made him realize there’s more than one way to blow out your vocal cords. That makes Old Crows/Young Cardinals a welcome reinvention, no matter how much you loved to shred your larynx by singing along to ‘Pulmonary Archery.’ “

--Mike Usinger, ALTERNATIVE PRESS (July 2009 issue)

In touring news, ALEXISONFIRE will bring their explosive live show to the entire summer run of the Vans Warped Tour 2009 (June 26-August 23), joining NOFX, 3Oh!3, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, TSOL, Underoath and many more on the annual punk rock extravaganza which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. Post Warped, the group are confirmed for the main stage of both the Reading and Leeds U.K. festivals performing alongside Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs and Placebo, to name a few. In October, the group will head back overseas for a European trek with Anti-Flag, The Fall of Troy and Ghost of a Thousand. Expect ALEXISONFIRE to tour throughout 2009 and beyond.
