I did not! You have some good taste, I must say.

So what's your favorite song and/or album?

They have been killer this tour. They haven't missed a beat, I heard an old fan saying that they're playing at the top of their game right now.

UGH NOW I AM MORE EXCITED!

Last time I saw them in August they were amazing as well and played a fantastic set

Anyone ever notice that the lyrics to Dan's solo album song "From This Oil Can" are the same as the lyrics in "I Remember A Rooftop" from Damnesia?

Bought Goddamnit and was a bit underwhelmed. I heard so often how it was supposed to be better than "Maybe I'll catch fire", but to me Goddamnit is their weakest album.

Some good songs on it of course, like Cop, Clavicle and the last 3, but aside from that there was a lot of "meh".

Damn really? that's a shame you didn't like it. I used to listen to that CD on repeat for hours back in the day. I even went and saw them when they played the whole album beginning to end. I think it was the Occult Roots tour or something. That was an awesome show.

Yeah I don't know why. I apparently have a strange opinion of their albums, as I find Agony & Irony to be one of their best along with Good Mourning and My Shame is True. I know at least A&I has been lambasted by AT fans.

Never been a big fan of Crimson and now not of Goddamnit either. I mean they are solid albums, but for me they had a lot of songs of the "meh" category. 

Crimson has though one of my favorites from them in Mercy Me.

Goddamnit actually gets better with every listen. Still with some "meh" songs, but it actually has some solid songs. 

Still songs like "nose over tail" and "enjoy your day" are almost cringeworthy. Cringe is good though.

If everything goes to plan in terms of festival timetabling, I shall be seeing Trio 6 times in Feb/Mar on the Soundwave Tour and at their sideshows in Australia. They're only the first opening band for Jimmy Eat World for the sideshows, but still I get to see them again :happy:

Nose Over Tail and Enjoy Your Day are amazing. The problem with Goddamnit is how similar the keys are and how jammy it is -- that makes some of the songs hard to discern from one another.

But after multiple listens the whole thing hits you and realize that Alkaline Trio is amazing and that the world is wonderful thanks to them.

A few videos from the last couple of weeks. I have quite a few, and more to upload yet, but here's the first 3

Note the audio from the first 2 is crap, the venue wasn't great, no centre-stage speaker. I could barely hear the vocals when I was there

Sadie 

 

Every Thug Needs A Lady

 

My Friend Peter

 

also also also they were just playing the same old setlist over and over for the 5 shows I saw them, but then at the last (5th) show, they replaced Every Thug with Young Lovers, it was amazing. Matt came down to the front after the show and I gushed over it to him, and he said they'd partly changed it because I'd done the last 4 shows so they wanted to do something different  :wub: That and it was partly for some friends of theirs side stage.

Also got to ask him how bowling went ("the best bands are the worst bowlers"), and how the Jeff Matika show was (apparently he'd been drinking a bit and it was a lot of fun), what a dude.

There were so few fans that they did their own soundchecks in Adelaide and Perth, and in Adelaide Derek came down before the show to go to the soundbooth (I think), and he came down to the few of us on barrier to say hi. It's good and bad having so few hardcore fans I guess  :ermm:

Just a lot of fun really, great guys (as usual), so much love from Matt and Derek during their sets.
