BrooklynVegan & Alexisonfire team for vinyl box set & new 80-page magazine!

BrooklynVegan has teamed up with Ontario post-hardcore heroes Alexisonfire for our first-ever special edition magazine! The 80-page magazine, written by BrooklynVegan editor Andrew Sacher, features a die cut cover with a color-matched AOF Heart Skull logo printed on vellum, and tells the career-spanning story of Alexisonfire, from their formation to their swift rise in popularity to their breakup to their reunion, with deep dives into every album from their 2002 self-titled debut through their 2022 comeback album Otherness. It features new, exclusive interviews with all five band members (George Pettit, Dallas Green, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings), as well as members of Hot Water Music, Fucked Up, Rise Against, Moneen, Boys Night Out, Sum 41, Billy Talent, and more.

The magazine is included in a new limited edition box set featuring exclusive vinyl variants of all five Alexisonfire studio albums--their 2002 self-titled debut on "slime high melt" vinyl, 2004's Watch Out! on "smoothie" vinyl, 2006's Crisis on "heavy red & black high melt," 2009's Old Crows / Young Cardinals on "clear w/ black & red high melt", and their 2022 reunion album Otherness on "violet meadow"--along with a new live album, Live at BBC Radio 1 Vol 2, on "black/white speciality mix." The live album -- exclusive to this box set -- features a career-spanning BBC Maida Vale session recorded on June 6, 2022 on side A and one recorded on November 21, 2008 with four Crisis songs on side B. Full tracklist for the live LP below.

All five studio albums will also be available individually on black/white marble vinyl, limited to 500 copies each, and bundled with the version of the magazine whose cover matches the album it's packaged with.

Pre-orders will launch Friday (9/8) at noon Eastern in the BrooklynVegan shop. Stay tuned!
