Canadian post-hardcore quintet Alexisonfire have revealed dates for their Farewell Tour. The band announced their breakup last year, following guitarists Dallas Green (of City and Colour fame) and Wade MacNeil's decision to focus on other projects. However, the band maintained the possibly of a final tour together, something the band confirmed on their official Facebook page:
"As promised in 2010 – we’re back for a Farewell Tour. We know that this tour doesn’t reach all of you, and this list is sure to cause some disappointment, but know that we have done our best to fit what we can into this window of time. December 2012 is the only time that all 5 of us aren’t committed to something in our personal or professional lives. An entire month!!!!
"We couldn’t be more excited to get on the road and travel and hit the stage one last time – most importantly we wanted to keep our promise to you guys. We’re going to be playing till the venues try to kick us off the stage. We’re talking 20+ songs a night.
"We said we’d return for some proper farewell shows. And here they are."
The Farewell Tour dates are as follows:
12/03 – London, UK @ O2 Academy Brixton
