ALEXISONFIRE released Otherness, their first full-length album in over 13 years, earlier this summer via Dine Alone Records.
Stream Otherness here.
Otherness is arguably the band’s most cohesive and self-actualized record to date, featuring impassioned anthems with earnest and deeply heartfelt lyrics, and impeccable vocal and musical performances from the iconic five–piece. The band is currently featured on the cover of New Noise Magazine, as well.
Today, the band has shared the video for “Mistaken Information.” Watch it here.
The video was directed by Nedda Afsari and the creative team at Muted Widows, who also shot the album artwork. The same models and actors are featured in the Otherness artwork — and the cinematic clip charts the course of the album art.
“It was a wonderful experience to create the video for ‘Mistaken Information’ for the incredible Alexisonfire,” Muted Windows states, offering insight into the overall vision. “We appreciate how receptive they were to the concept after listening to the song — immediately feeling a sort of hypnotic tone. The video is abstract in nature and much more about feeling.”
Afsari concurs, saying. “I love working on all-encompassing projects, making videos that tie into photos for album art. Michael E. Linn shot tons of footage for the album photo shoot and knew we wanted to incorporate that into ‘Mistaken Information.’ We created a deja vu world where dreams blend with reality, and nothing is certain.”
ALEXISONFIRE will return to the road in the U.S. next month. All dates are below.

ABOUT ALEXISONFIRE + OTHERNESS:
A continuous thread through the fabric of Alexisonfire is the state of otherness. Otherness drew us all to spaces where a band like this could be formed. We attract the type of individuals that have all felt the sensation of being strange or unique. Perceived or otherwise, otherness has followed us through childhood, adolescence, and into our adult lives. It drives our tastes and proclivities. It bonds us with ourselves and others. And make no mistake, even at our most domestic and mundane moments, we are true outliers.
