Published Aug 07, 2018As previously reported, Matt Skiba is gearing up to trade in the arena-ready mall punk of Blink-182 to revisit some spookier vibes as Alkaline Trio. The band announced their latest LP Is This Thing Cursed? last month, and now we get a second taste of the release with its title track.
"Is This Thing Cursed?" is a dynamic, melodic and well-paced pop-punk tune that offers plenty of pop appeal without bowing down to the hyper-compressed radio rock of Skiba's current dayjob.
The song arrived via a lyric video that certainly hearkens back to Rosemary's Baby. You can check out the whole thing below.
Is This Thing Cursed? will arrive on digitally and on CD on August 31 via Epitaph, while the vinyl version will follow on October 19. You can pre-order the album in various bundles over here.
