Alkaline Trio and Bayside
MONDAY 21ST APRIL 2014
7.00 p.m. - 10.30 p.m.
Dan Andriano - bass/vocals
Derek Grant - drums/vocals
Matt Skiba - guitar/vocals
Now relocated from their Chicago home, with Skiba in Los Angeles, Grant in Indianapolis and Andriano in St. Augustine, FL, Alkaline Trio are poised and ready for what they see as two years of non-stop touring.
Each of the band’s last two Vagrant releases, Good Mourning (#20) and Crimson (#25), have cracked the upper reaches of the U.S. album charts, so expectations are high for their major label bow.
And things are already off to a great start, with the first single, “Help Me,” generating 70k plays in just a single day on MySpace. The album cover, by renowned British designer John Yates, who created memorable sleeves for the Dead Kennedys, among others, during his 10 years at Jello Biafra’s legendary punk label Alternative Tentacles, is a take-off on the iconic ‘60s Time magazine that asked, “Is God Dead?”
“We’ve taken a major step in our growth,” nods Skiba. “A bigger one than we’ve ever taken up until now.”
