Shame to please!
Alkaline Trio return on April 2 with My Shame Is True, their most dynamic album to date. In anticipation of the release, the band have debuted a brand new single "I Wanna Be Warhol."

Recorded with Bill Stevenson of punk legends The Descendents and Black Flag and with Jason Livermore at the producers' Blasting Room Studios in Colorado, My Shame Is True pushes the band into new musical terrain while embracing their classic Trio sound. The album contains 40 minutes of passionate punk-filled rock that showcases guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba, bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano and drummer Derek Grant at their absolute best.
"We're very proud of it," says Matt Skiba. "Once we got in the studio, the songs really took on a shape of their own."
Rise Against's Tim Mcllarth guests on the rousing punk rock anthem, "I, Pessimist."
"It's never been about being rich or famous," continues Skiba. "We always wanted to have the band be our career… to have that longevity… that should be the goal. We are going to do it until it stops being fun. If it ever feels like a job, why would you be involved in the arts at all? We have the right chemistry as a band and with crowds, big or small. We have community within a community."
