Partnering with Indspire, the band have launched the Alexisonfire Indigenous Music Bursary, an annual award that will go to Indigenous post-secondary students, with priority for those set to pursue music studies.
The bursary was established in memory of the band's longtime friend and sound technician, Karl Bareham, who passed away in 2019. Alexisonfire write on Twitter, "To date, we've granted financial support to over 100 First Nations, Inuit & Métis students across Canada working towards their post secondary education goals."

Alexisonfire shared new single "Season of the Flood" in January, which followed 2019 singles "Familiar Drugs" and "Complicit." Their most recent album remains 2009's Old Crows / Young Cardinals.
Over the past 2 years we worked w/ @Plus1 to collect $1 from every concert ticket that we sold. $1 seems so inconsequential but when accumulated, it can go a long way. With your help, we were able to create the #Alexisonfire Indigenous Music Bursary in partnership w/ @Indspire pic.twitter.com/w5X6cc0B3r— ALEXISONFIRE (@aof_official) October 19, 2020
