Ian in Your Ear: Alkaline Trio's Latest Addiction
So much for techno-anarchy: Popular punk outfit Alkaline Trio is back with their seventh album, This Addiction, and they aren't just sitting back to promote it. The Illinois-bred band launched a new Twitter and Facebook campaign on their Web site that will allow fans to stream their raucous new single, an album title track comparing drug addiction to love (hint: have heard that theme before but never quite like this...). Hey: No way to rebel, but it is the way to get the word out these days, so kudos, guys.
Check out the boys on tour soon, too, kicking off Feb. 16 in Pomona, Calif. And before their album drops on Feb. 23, listen to their single, "This Addiction," above. For more, visit AlkalineTrio.com.
