Alexandria Maillot has announced the release of her much-awaited second album. Fans have previously been teased with singles, “Make It Out”, “Messed It Up”, and “The Jungle’. However, the wait for more of Maillot is over – coming November 22nd is Benevolence, armed with seven new tracks in Maillot’s signature “swoon rock” style along with two bonus tracks on the vinyl edition, including a special acoustic version of “Make It Out”.
Maillot says of her sophomore release:
“Benevolence is a series of questions and contemplations; the personal narrative of working three jobs to survive in the city, living paycheck to paycheck to fuel a tedious creative career, a depleting immune system and mental state, and the inevitable burn-out that lead to moving into a cabin in my mom’s backyard,” Maillot reflects. “It addresses the aftermath of a toxic relationship, it asks how one’s actions can create ripple effects in other’s lives, and it argues whether a person is selfish for making necessary sacrifices in their search of sustainability.”

She has unveiled a video for “The Judge” in advance:
Maillot will be on tour across Canada this fall, kicking off with a stop in Halifax tomorrow for Halifax Pop Explosion, before hitting the road with Louise Burns in November. Full dates can be found below – don’t miss experiencing Benevolence live!

Hello! I’m Alaina. I live in the very charming city of Montreal. Music is something I’m very passionate about. You’ll probably catch me gushing about some rock album or the other, analyzing a bunch of lyrics or raving about a recent concert. I live for live music and heavy basslines.
Writing is another one of my loves. What better way to capture and immortalize my thoughts? You take music and you take writing, combine the two and……boom – a match made in heaven. Music Journalism. That’s the dream.
