Alkaline Trio are an American punk rock trio hailing from McHenry, Illinois, that formed back in 1996. Consisting of frontman and lead guitarist Matt Skiba, bassist Dan Andriano, and drummer Derek Grant, the band released their debut single ‘Sundials’ in 1997, and put out their debut album ‘Goddamnit’ the following year.
The band continued to release albums, charting higher and higher with each release - they first charted in the UK with ‘Good Mourning’ in 2003, which hit #32 (and #20 in the US). 2010’s ‘This Addiction’ was their highest charting, hitting #11 in the Billboard 200.
We could talk about Alkaline Trio’s studio accomplishments, but you’d be far better off grabbing the tracks yourself - or, better yet, catching them live on stage, where you’ll experience as energetic a live show as you’ll find in punk rock. Their recent 15th anniversary tour was a hit with fans in the US.
The trio’s eighth record, ‘My Shame is True’, was unleashed in April 2013, and following an acclaimed show in the Islington Academy, they headed out for dates in April 2014, with Bayside as support. Their next venture saw the Trio embark on a co-headline UK tour alongside NOFX in summer 2015, supported by Lagwagon.
Rumours and talk of a new Alkaline Trio have been rampant for the past few years, and Skiba and Andriano have both all but confirmed that a new record could be out in the near future. But in the mean time, they have confirmed a US tour alongside Together Pangea for late summer/fall 2018. Check below to find the dates and tickets through Stereoboard!

Perhaps we place too much stock in being surprised - or at least in the pursuit of something shiny and new to entertain us - because we often laud ambition and apparent boundary-pushing at the expense of craft. After all, why should we be impressed by the execution of dog-eared blueprints?
