Alexisonfire fans, rejoice. Our friends at BrooklynVegan have teamed with the Canadian post-hardcore trailblazers for a massive vinyl box set, exclusive reissues, and a special-issue magazine celebrating their beloved career.

The limited-edition box set features exclusive vinyl variants of all five Alexisonfire studio albums: 2002's 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."

Additionally, the package includes a new live album, Live at BBC Radio 1 Vol 2, that's exclusive to this box set. The live album — pressed on "black/white specialty mix" colored wax — features a career-spanning BBC Maida Vale session recorded on June 6th, 2022 on side A and one recorded on November 21st, 2008 with four Crisis songs on side B.

To go alongside coveted vinyl pressings is an 80-page magazine where BV editor Andrew Sachar traces the history of the band — their formation, swift rise in popularity, breakup and reunion — through exclusive interviews with all five band members.

The issue also includes deep dives into all of their records, and interviews with famous friends of the band in groups like Hot Water Music, Fucked Up, Rise Against, Moneen, Boys Night Out, Sum 41, Billy Talent and more.

Outside of the box set, the albums are 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 are available now in the BrooklynVegan shop.
