Alexisonfire are continuing to release new music into the new decade. The Canadian post-hardcore favorites have just shared the moody “Season of the Flood,” another non-album track from the band’s vault of new material.

Before Rage Against the Machine, Motley Crue or My Chemical Romance announced their return in 2019, there was Alexisonfire, the cult band who released their first new songs since 2010’s Dog’s Blood EP and their 2011 Midnight Oil cover, “The Dead Heart.”

Alexisonfire surprised fans in 2019 with the tracks “Familiar Drugs” and “Complicit,” along with a short run of tour dates. The boys have now announced another limited string of shows to accompany “Season of the Flood,” which premiered on BBC 1’s Rock Show With Daniel P Carter.

“Season of the Flood” has Dallas Green’s fingerprints all over it, maintaining a slow and atmospheric pace throughout. Clocking in at nearly seven minutes, “Season of the Flood” is Alexisonfire’s longest original song to date, and also one of their least progressive, but like much of the band’s celebrated discography, “Season of the Flood” is brilliantly balanced.

Here are the new song's lyrics, via AZLyrics:

All that is will go away
But come again another day
Through turbulence on proud display
I'll walk with you into the fray

You want someone to love
You don't need somebody to hate
You want someone to love
You don't need somebody to hate

Summer shores will flow and ebb
Ice will form in gentle threat
But without fear we softly step
You're what I owe, you are my debt

You want someone to love
You don't need somebody to hate
You want someone to love
You don't need somebody to hate
Somebody to hate

(Somebody to hate)
(Somebody to hate)
(Somebody to hate)
(Somebody to hate)

I'm lost in the season of decay
And she's coming to collect again
I'm lost in the season of fire
And she's coming to collect again
I'm lost in the season of ice
And she's coming, coming to collect again
And I'm lost in the season of the flood
And she's coming to collect again
And I always, I always pay in, I always pay in full

But without fear we softly step
You're what I owe, you are my debt
