Alexisonfire clarify what being “back” actually means

Alexisonfire is officially back,” came the assured cry from Wade MacNeil at a recent gig. People were understandably very excited but now the band have clarified what being back actually means.

“It was an unforgettable summer,” the Facebook post begins. “All of us are extremely grateful to have such loyal and dedicated fans who were willing to stick with us. That being said, we feel the need to clarify something.

“‘Alexisonfire is officially back’ may well be true, but it seems some may be reading more into this than they should. The truth is, nothing has really changed. We all have our own careers and families which require our attention and as far as Alexisonfire is concerned, there are no immediate plans.

What “Alexisonfire is back” does mean is that the 5 of us are back in each other’s lives and are as good friends now as we’ve ever been. If we’re lucky, we’ll see you out there again. Thank you for sharing in the moment with us.”

So, that’s that then. At least we can relive their slot at Reading Festival.
