MUSIC NEWS: Alkaline Trio Announce Tenth Album & Release Video For New Single ‘Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs’
Alkaline Trio have announced their tenth studio album Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs, due for release on 26th January 2024 via Rise Records.
“My mom worked for years as an emergency room nurse,” says vocalist/guitarist/founder Matt Skiba. “She and her co-workers referred to exceptionally busy nights as ‘blood, hair, and eyeballs’. Well, we’ve been busy making an exceptional record we refer to as Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs, too.
“We approached this new record in completely new ways. We built the songs together, from the ground up, in the same room which hasn’t happened since the band started. Usually, we start with an idea somebody’s already written. This time, we had the unique opportunity to build the songs onto drums recorded at Studio 606 onto two-inch tape using one of the most beautiful-sounding and legendary consoles in rock. It has almost everything to do with how our new record sounds.”
The band have also released a video for the album’s title track.
“Sometimes the full circle nature of life is enough to just completely blow my mind…this is one of those times!” adds bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano. “Skateboarding is my first love, my favourite sport, and a community through which I was first introduced to punk rock. So when Matt and I read Ravi’s idea to combine the two and throw some spooky zombies in there we both loved it right away. The work Ravi and the entire production crew put in was insane and it shows. To kick off our 10th album release with this super fun video featuring Steve Caballero, Chris Cole, Ace, Corey and Shea is so much more than a dream come true, it’s true love. This is not a phase.”
