Alexisonfire is back on fire once more.

The Canadian rockers have announced a new album called Otherness, ending the 13-year wait for a follow-up to their last full-length record, 2009’s Old Crows/Young Cardinals.

Otherness will be released on June 24. Its first single, titled “Sweet Dreams of Otherness,” is available now via digital outlets.

“This song was largely [vocalist/guitarist] Dallas [Green‘s] brain child, but over the course of writing this record, it became more of a mission statement for the band,” says vocalist George Pettit. “It’s kind of about performance and embracing a new found confidence in a state of peculiarity.”

A video for “Sweet Dreams of Otherness,” directed by She’s Out of My League and This Is the End star Jay Baruchel, premieres Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.

After breaking up in 2012 after a farewell tour, Alexisonfire reunited in 2015. In 2019, they released the song “Familiar Drugs,” marking the band’s first new music since getting back together. That was followed by two more new tunes, “Complicit” and “Season of the Flood.”

Here’s the Otherness track list:

“Committed to the Con”
“Sweet Dream of Otherness”
“Sans Soleil”
“Conditional Love”
“Blue Spade”
“Dark Night of the Soul”
“Mistaken Information”
“Survivor’s Guilt”
“Reverse the Curse”
“World Stops Turning”
