Alkaline Trio have dropped the title-track from their upcoming new album ‘Is This Thing Cursed?’, which arrives digitally on 31st August and on vinyl from 19th October. Their first new music in five years, it follows on from new track ‘Blackbird’.
Co-lead vocalist and bassist Dan Andriano says of the release: “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.”
Matt Skiba adds: “Some people thought we were done. We announced a tour and a lot of the shows are already sold out. Nobody knows that we made a new record. It's not unlike getting somebody that you care about something extra super special for their birthday and you're really excited to give it to them. It feels kind of like that.”
