Wade MacNeil (Alexisonﬁre, Gallows) has released the first track from his new psych-rock project Dooms Children. “Flower Moon” premiered on the popular BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P Carter on May 23rd and is available to stream now HERE. The swirling, slow burn of the song with its intensely cathartic coda, embodies the hope of renewal and rebirth that the full Moon of May, known as the Flower Moon, represents in cultures the world over. The release also coincides with one of the astronomical highlights of 2021, a combination of a May’s full Flower Moon, a ‘supermoon’ and a total lunar eclipse.
The video for “Flower Moon” is directed by Montreal filmographer Brian Shannon known for his feature-length skate videos. It features Team Canada global pro street skateboarder Annie Guglia (Montreal) navigating the unusually quiet and empty streets of Montreal during the pandemic lockdown.

Shares MacNeil, “This song is about putting back together the pieces of a life that’s been shattered…feeling a little rough around the edges from what you’ve been through, but excited about what’s to come, ’cause you don’t know what’s going to happen next.”
Central to the enveloping aural experience of Dooms Children is its live-off-the-floor recording and organic production style. The effort was co-produced with musical collaborator Daniel Romano, and also features multi-instrumentalist Ian Romano, and Montreal guitarist Patrick Bennett. More information on the project will be available in the coming weeks.
Since co-founding pioneering post-hardcore outfit Alexisonfire in the early 2000s, the Canadian singer, guitarist, songwriter, and composer has lent his talents to numerous influential and impactful projects. He founded gritty punk outfit Black Lungs, fronts U.K. hardcore heroes Gallows, put fingerprints on recordings by the likes of Anti-Flag, Cancer Bats, and Bedouin Soundclash, and scored a handful of successful feature films and video games. In 2017, Wade composed music for Jay Baruchel’s comedy Goon: Last of the Enforcers, and also scored Baruchel’s 2020 horror film Random Acts Of Violence.
