It's been 14 years since Alkaline Trio released their first full-length album, "Goddamnit." In that time, they've toured the world, sold over a million records and expanded their sound beyond their original straight-ahead punk style, incorporating more melody and production. Now with "My Shame Is True," their eighth studio album, Alkaline Trio has honed their songwriting craft to a new high, coming with their strongest set of songs to date. With producer extraordinaire Bill Stevenson (member of All, Descendents, Black Flag, producer of As I Lay Dying, Rise Against, NOFX, Against Me! and many more) at the dials, the album has all the crunch and verve of classic pop punk. Coming off the much-lauded "This Addiction," which the LA Times hailed as the "band's best album in years," Alkaline Trio will awe old and new fans alike with their continued quest for pop punk perfection.
