Alexisonfire Celebrate 15th Anniversary Of Debut Self-Titled LP

Iconic Canadian rock band ALEXISONFIRE celebrate the 15th Anniversary of their self-titled debut studio album originally released on this day in 2002. To mark the 15th year anniversary, AOF has curated a personal playlist featuring songs that inspired them during their early days as a band. Stream the playlist via Spotify HERE and Apple Music HERE. Dine Alone Records will also be offering a number of Anniversary sales incentives throughout the coming days to mark the occasion. See below for direct links and more details.

The album’s infamous cover art featured a photo taken by George Pettit at Ferndale Public School in St. Catharines, Ontario of “two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife fight”, a description the band used at the time when asked to describe their sound. During the year that followed the release of their self-titled debut, the band shot into the spotlight with 3 videos in Heavy rotation on MuchMusic (the first “hardcore” artist to ever chart at #1 on the now-defunct Power Shift chart), an MMVA nod for their debut video “Pulmonary Archery”, a Best Video Award for “Pulmonary Archery” at the Canadian Independent Music Awards, and an MMVA award for “Counterparts and Number Them”. The LP was certified Gold in Canada in 2005 – the same year the band won a JUNO for “New Group of the Year” – and went on to sell over 200K worldwide. A remixed and remastered version was released in 2014 via Dine Alone Records.
