Interview with Alexisonfire (Wade Returns!)
JUL 27
Description Community
We had the pleasure of interviewing Wade MacNeil of Alexisonfire over Zoom video.

ALEXISONFIRE released Otherness, their long-anticipated and first full-length album in over 13 years.

Otherness is arguably the band's most cohesive and self-actualized record to date, featuring impassioned anthems with earnest and deeply heartfelt lyrics, and impeccable vocal and musical performances from the iconic 5-piece.

Up next is the visually stunning, dreamlike video for "Sans Soleil," which was shot in New Orleans and directed by longtime collaborator Michael Maxxis, who also directed "The Northern" and "Familiar Drugs."

Watch the video for "Sans Soleil"

Guitarist/vocalist Wade MacNeil has described the song as "hanging onto hope during the heaviest times, healing and letting go. Dreaming of a future where all this hurt is behind you."

"'Sans Soleil' is such a beautiful, haunting, mysterious, and uplifting song, and it immediately inspires a certain type of visual," explains Maxxis. "The idea was to make something that was opposite of that first flight of instinct that still possessed the same innate spirit. The process we undertook conceptualizing this video was one of the most unique and rewarding of my career."

Otherness features 10 fresh, original songs, including the explosive first single, "Sweet Dreams Of Otherness," previously released banger "Reverse The Curse," and the hauntingly beautiful "Sans Soleil." The album was produced by AOF and mixed by punk stalwart Jonah Falco (Fucked Up, Chubby and the Gang).
