Alexisonfire Sign To Roadrunner UK
May 5, 2009
Roadrunner Records UK are proud to announce the release of 'Old Crows/ Young Cardinals', the fourth album from Canada’s Juno Award-winning Alexisonfire.

"We're really proud of this new record," says guitarist/vocalist Wade MacNeil. "'Old Crows / Young Cardinals' is a big step forward for the band, and signing to Roadrunner for Europe and Japan is an important part of that."

The St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada-based quintet have set June 22 (June 23rd in the U.S.) as the release date for the highly anticipated follow-up to the band’s Platinum-selling album, 'Crisis', which debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan Chart in Canada.

'Old Crows/Young Cardinals' was recorded at Armoury Studios (Vancouver, BC) and Silo Recordings (Hamilton, ON) and is co-produced by Alexisonfire alongside JuliusJuiceButty who produced previous albums 'Watch Out!' and 'Crisis'. Legendary Nick Blagona also engineered the album at the Armoury Studio sessions.

'Old Crows/Young Cardinals' will be released by Roadrunner in Europe and Japan, with Dine Alone releasing in Australia and South Africa, and Vagrant in the US.

Alexisonfire will play a run of 3 intimate headline shows at the Borderline in London, 9/10/11 June - all of which sold out immediately of going on sale. They will be supported by Sharks (June 9), Hexes (10), and Ghost Of A Thousand (11). They also play Germany’s Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park Festivals, as well as Reading & Leeds Festivals in the UK. *Alexisonfire are not playing the Download Festival*
