A little more punk this week with a band that I wasn’t familiar with until this past weekend. Alkaline Trio, which happens to be one of the bands featured on the front page of the Zune Marketplace right now, is a punk rock band out of Chicago, released their new album in June 2008 called Agony & Irony. Coming into the band at this point, you’ll be excused if you think it’s more of a pop band than punk. I really can’t complain since I find that it makes the album pretty easy to listen to from start to finish. (Actually they’re my most listened to artist this month.)
If you’re a fan of the band this one might not get you going as much as some of the older albums. I could definitely hear a difference. If you haven’t hear them before, though, you might want to check them out. I may even see them at the House of Blues in Orlando on the 19th.
