The hardcore band Alexisonfire released their new single “Complicit”. Co-produced by the band and long-time friend Karl Bareham (City and Colour) and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse), the track comes out on the heels of “Familiar Drugs”.
About “Complicit”, vocalist George Pettit stated:
“[The single] is about recognizing the unfair advantages that we are afforded as white, heterosexual males. It’s about rejecting regressionist ideas of racism, misogyny, and hetero supremacy. It’s about accepting that there is no freedom and no future in a world that is not inclusive.”

Also available is a standard Black 7” vinyl with a limited pressing of a Translucent Red variant randomly inserted throughout the stock. In addition, there is a new longsleeve inspired by “Complicit”, which was designed by graphic artist Jeremy Dean. Both can be found at https://alexisonfire.store-08.com/featured/.
