News Release Alexisonfire have an early Christmas present for their fans worldwide. The band plan on releasing a digital bundle featuring two cover songs they recorded recently – Midnight Oil’s “The Dead Heart” and The Saints’ “I’m Stranded”. The cover songs were originally released as an exclusive 7” vinyl during their recent Australian tour. Only 200 copies were made and quickly sold-out on their tour. Much to the band’s pleasant surprise, Alexisonfire’s cover of “The Dead Heart” climbed to No. 6 in Australia, charting on the Hot 100 in Australia and the UK. “We love Australia and wanted to do something special,” says Dallas Green. Midnight Oil is like the Australian Tragically Hip and, I mean, The Dead Heart is a great song! Wade chose The Saint’s cover. He loves early Australian punk.” Currently, “The Dead Heart” is getting air time on Canadian radio and at last check sits #34 on the BDS Rock Charts, and is the #1 Futures track.

Release date: November 22, 2010 (Canada), December 7, 2010 (US), November 26 (Australia) TBD (UK)

Could not agree more.
Has Dallas done any studio or high quality recordings besides Boiled Frogs and Happiness by the Kilowatt? All the covers/acoustic on youtube are ruined by talking fans, etc.

20,000 watt RSL, its the greatest hits

top songs on it like:
The Power and The Passion
Bed are Burning
blue sky mine
king of the mountain

their singer is now a polticion here, and is my local member for parliment, it seems weird especially when you see the old footage of him performing
you gotta see him dancing on youtube, to describe it... "unique", he gets into his songs
