Reflect on White Privilege, Racism and Misogyny with New Track

ALEXISONFIRE unleash a brand new banger, “Complicit” today. 

Produced by AOF, 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 on the heels of “Familiar Drugs” which marked the first time the band has released new music in almost 10 years.

Says George Pettit about the new track, “‘Complicit’ 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.”


“Complicit” is now available to stream and purchase via DSPs, and is also available on a standard Black 7” vinyl, with a limited pressing of a Translucent Red variant randomly inserted throughout stock quantities.

Along with the 7” vinyl, AOF will have a new “Complicit” inspired t-shirt designed by graphic artist Jeremy Dean, best known for his “Wonders of Black Flag” designs. Both music and merch can be found HERE.

Alexisonfire premiered the official video for “Familiar Drugs” last month, teaming up with Michael Maxxis who directed their personal favourite AOF video for “The Northern” and City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird”, “Thirst”, and “Lover Come Back”.
