Chris Steele from Alexisonfire

Aug 03, 04:00 AM

One of the greatest to ever wield the four strings is on Turned Out A Punk! Today on the show, Alexisonfire’s bass monster Chris Steele is here to talk punk. Listen in as he and Damian sit down and have their first in depth conversation after nearly 20 years of knowing each other. From the influence of Iggy Pop, to the struggles that come from growing up in a touring band, to walking away from music only to return with a profoundly different sense of self: this is not to be missed! 

Also, don’t miss Alexisonfire’s fantastic new album: “Otherness”, in stores and streaming  now! And don’t miss Alexisonfire’s upcoming tour! More info at:
