Listen: New Music from Alkaline Trio


July 19, 2018

Alkaline Trio announce their 9th studio album "Is This Thing Cursed?" today.  This is the first new music we've heard from them in 5 long years. According to the band, "Is This Thing Cursed?" is a cousin or sibling to Fire.  Dan Andriano explains, “the songwriting process is almost like what it was back in the day. We would just kind of write a song, be excited about it, then move on. We wrote in that spirit in the studio. I really feel like we made a record that the old school fans are going to dig.”

Is This Thing Cursed? comes out on CD/digital on August 31 and on vinyl on October 19.
