Black Lungs

Alexisonfire members are popping up everywhere solo as guitarist Wade MacNeil has become Black Lungs (these guys love playing under pseudonyms!). These two guys obviously have a lot of energy and creative juices to burn as one band is not enough for them.

As opposed to Dallas Green's (City and Colour) venture into pop music, Wade MacNeil keeps it on the dark side with songs of death, loss and even hell. It is more along the lines of Depeche Mode or the like without the synthesizers. Maybe a bit like Foo Fighters, if we are going to classify. MacNeil even sounds vocally a bit like Dave Grohl of Depeche Mode.

Comparisons aside this is not quite a radio friendly as City and Colour, but a good first album filled with indie rock mixed with piano ballads.
