Alkaline Trio to Re-Record Fan Favourite Tracks.

Alkaline Trio are set to return to the studio to re-record some of their greatest tracks:

In celebration of their 15th year as a band, high energy melodic cult rockers Alkaline Trio have announced they will enter the studio in late February to re-imagine and record a collection of songs from their celebrated catalog for a new album to be released this summer on Epitaph/Heart & Skull.

The threesome will be stripping down fan favorites from their coveted seven studio albums, which include Goddamnit, Maybe I’ll Catch Fire, From Here to Infirmary, Good Mourning, Crimson, Agony & Irony and This Addiction, and re-recording the songs under new visions with the accompaniment of a variety of instruments at Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa, California.  Additionally, the band will tantalize fans with new tracks as well, making this a must have for both old and new fans alike.

Known for well-crafted hook filled songwriting and poetic tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Alkaline Trio have amassed a diehard cult following around the globe in the last 15 years.  Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba, bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano and drummer Derek Grant, the group has composed some of punk rock’s most memorable songs with hits like “Nose Over Tail” from their 1998 debut Goddamnit, “Radio” from 2000’s Maybe I’ll Catch Fire, “Private Eye” from 2001’s From here to Infirmary, “We’ve Had Enough” from 2003’s Good Mourning, “Time to Waste” from 2005’s Crimson, “Calling All Skeletons” from 2008’s Agony & Irony and the title track from 2010’s This Addiction among others.  With so many classic tracks to choose from, anticipation for this release amongst the band’s fans is sure to be huge!

As a huge Alkaline Trio fan, this excited me very much, interested to hear how they change the tracks, hopefully another UK tour will follow.
