ALEXISONFIRE Anti-Flag Confirm Eastpak UK Tour Oct 2009‏

The EASTPAK ANTIDOTE tour steams back to the UK this October, co-headlined by ALEXISONFIRE and ANTI-FLAG! It will also feature great new bands THE FALL OF TROY and THE GHOST OF A THOUSAND. Alexisonfire will close all UK shows.

The Juno-award winning ALEXISONFIRE (pronounced ‘Alexis-on-fire’) will release their fourth full-length disc Old Crows/Young Cardinals on June 22nd. This is the St. Catharines, Ontario-based quintet’s follow-up to the Platinum-selling album Crisis which debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan Chart in Canada. Their music is characterized by turbulent and explosive dynamics with intricate guitar melodies. Alexisonfire will also perform at the UK’s Reading/Leeds festivals - the only band appearing on both the Main Stage and the Lock-Up Stage! They kick off their festival touring with 3 intimate sold-out London headline dates this week.

ANTI-FLAG released their seventh full-length album (and first on Side One Dummy), The People Or The Gun, June 8th and it starts off fast and furious with “Sodom, Gomorrah, Washington D.C. (Sheep in Shepherd’s Clothing)” as Chris #2 takes aim at those who use the Bible to control the masses, spitting out the lyrics with an urgency that makes his voice crack. If the album’s second track, “The Economy is Suffering…Let It Die,” isn’t nearly as reckless, it’s just as impassioned, recalling the more melodic moments on those first two albums by The Clash. Before they’re through, in fact, they’ve fired off a number of their most explosive political broadsides from the punk-rock trenches yet. Anti-Flag will have a local Emmaus shelter involved at each show. Visit them at Emmaus - giving homeless people a bed... and a reason to get out of it..
