Otherness is Alexisonfire’s first album in over 13 years.
“Sans Soleil” is a heartfelt track about the trials one faces in the quest for self-love and the comfort that others might provide.
Vocalist George Pettit shared how the track’s lyrics came to be.
“Wade came in with the lyrics for this song around the same time he had been working on the Dooms Children record, and I feel like it shows. The Dooms Children album touched on a lot of things extremely personal to Wade, and this song is definitely in that vein,” Pettit says.
Guitarist Wade MacNeil also explained the song’s meaning.
“This song is about hanging onto hope during the heaviest times. Healing and letting go,” MacNeil says. “Dreaming of a future where all this hurt is behind you.”
Alexisonfire begin their North American tour May 19. Be sure to get your tickets here.
