Alexisonfire - Death Letter Cover

Gone, but we won't forget them.

With Alexisonfire now but a fond memory to all, their final EP – a re-working of six fan favourites by guitarists Dallas Green and Wade MacNeil – is a fitting, sombre parting gift. Largely stripped-back to just guitar and their two voices, ‘Born And Raised’ and ‘Midnight Regulations’ make great use of their vocal contrast, while ‘Happiness By The Kilowatt’ is a piano-led heart-wrencher that closes the band’s recorded career on a gorgeous high. In truth they could have selected a couple of stronger tracks from their back catalogue, but overall this is a warm goodbye from one of the last decade’s most important bands.
