Alexisonfire vocalist and guitarist Wade MacNeil will be taking to the road with his new solo project Black Lungs, featuring Liam from Cancer Bats on drums.

Black Lungs' originated when MacNeil found himself amassing a collection of songs so introspective and personal, he wanted to sing them himself. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Billy Bragg, MacNeil seamlessly weaves folk sentimentality with punk ideology. While the studio album features Ian Romano (Attack in Black) on drums and old-friend Sammi Bogdanski on piano, MacNeil recruits a revolving line-up of likeminded musicians-friends including members of Alexisonfire, Attack in Black, Cancer Bats and Moneen when taking Black Lungs on the road.

The debut album, 'Send Flowers' will be out on 25th August with tour dates as follows:
Tue 26 Aug 2008 UK Glasgow King Tuts
Wed 27 Aug 2008 UK Manchester Roadhouse
Thu 28 Aug 2008 UK London Water Rats
Fri 29 Aug 2008 UK Cardiff Ifor Bach
Sat 30 Aug 2008 UK Brighton Audio
