Alexisonfire Reach Gold With 'Watch Out!'

Published: 2004-09-14
Alexisonfire is one of the most successful hardcore bands to come out of Canada. It's not a huge surprise then that the five-piece has officially attained Gold Record certification in their home country with 'Watch Out!'. Released in June 2004, 'Watch Out!' is Alexisonfire's second full-length album.

The album has spawned four singles which have all done extremely well in both the mainstream and underground music scenes. The most recent single lifted off of 'Watch Out!' is 'Accidents', the video for which can currently be seen playing on Much Music. To watch some of Alexisonfire's videos go to the band's brilliantly named site at www.theonlybandever.com.

Although Alexisonfire has been a very busy band of late, touring Canada and the USA extensively, and even heading to the UK to play the Reading & Leeds Festivals, they're not ready to stop yet. The band has a whole slew of North American dates lined up for the fall, with 15 stops in Canada (six of them falling on the soil of the band's home province of Ontario).

The Canadian dates of the fall tour will also feature Closet Monster, Hopefall and Moneen on the bill. The tour kicks off today (September 14th) in London, Ontario, finishing up October 9th in Victoria, BC.
