Alkaline Trio to release new album and tour

 Chicago cult rockers Alkaline Trio have released a new video "I  Want To Be A Warhol" from their forthcoming album, My Shame Is True due out April 2nd. Alkaline Trio will also hit the road this April on a headlining US tour and tickets are on-sale now.

Fans can check out the new video via YouTube here:

Directed by Rob Soucy in Los Angeles, CA, the new video explores the darker depths of obsession and sexuality with paying homage to the classic thrillers like Psycho and Rear Window.  Soucy comments, "Matt and I worked very closely on the concept of the video and came to the agreement that we wanted to make the choice of having a slowly paced narrative video, almost like a short film."

Matt Skiba adds, "What started out as a quickly scribbled idea in the middle of the night became what we now have. I miss the videos that are short films, back when MTV played videos all day. That's what I wanted to accomplish when I wrote this thing that night - to bring the story back to the video. We're very proud and I can't thank Milla enough for coming to set that day along with everyone who worked so tirelessly and passionately on this thing."

Alkaline Trio will be joined by brooding punk rockers Bayside  and Off With Their Heads for an exuberant live tour that kicks off in Santa Ana, CA on April 25th. Since emerging in 1996, Alkaline Trio have become one of the punk rock’s most progressive and unique bands of the last decade, rousing a dedicated legion of passionate supporters with eight fan-adored albums and relentless world-wide touring. My Shame Is True is the next chapter in the band’s celebrated career. 

My Shame Is True is now available for pre-order via Epitaph by going to
