ALKALINE TRIO ‘They’re Back’

Interview By: Leslie Rae Terhorst


lkaline Trio’ 6th album, ‘Agony & Irony’ has been three year in the making, and well worth the wait. The Chicago Indie band has newly signed with Epic record, and recorded in Los Angeles along side of producer Josh Abraham (Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, Slayer), created this 11 rip-roaring punk-rock anthems that take you on a spiritual trip to hell and back. “There’s a heavy theme of duality, light and dark, life and death, on the album,” says Matt, adding, “we tried to make it all about the individual songs, and we really took the time to craft each one in the studio.” Matt Skiba, Dan Andriano, and Derek Grant have achieved what they set out to do. I chatted with lead vocal/guitarist Matt Skiba on the phone to dig a little deeper into the psyche behind the band and their songs.
