“I think that’s silly. Punk rock to me isn’t a haircut. It isn’t a style of music. It’s something that is what it is. Being punk rock is being an individual, and that’s not going anywhere. Being yourself is punk. Johnny Cash is punk. To me, that’s never going to die.”—
In response to the question: "What do you say to the phrase ‘Punk is dead?’"
You're always up on the latest Trio news. I always check here for that. I think epitaph needs to give you a job. LOL.
Thank you! It means a lot because I try my best to keep up to date on things and share what I think people will be interested in hearing, knowing and seeing. It means a lot that even one person appreciates it.
These are from an international magazine called Visions. The article is translated by the lovely Melian over at TBP forums. Thanks Mel!
I think this is definitely worth the read, as I really enjoyed it myself. It’s not your average Q&A shoot off session. It’s more of a “day in the life” sort of thing and you definitely get a little taste of their personalities aside from when they are being asked questions. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did.
With their new record “This Addiction” Alkaline Trio move back to their roots in more than one aspect: they produced it in their home town Chicago, together with the producer of their first records - and publish it on a small lable. On their own label. You can talk about that. And publish the typical interview. For that reason Alkaline Trio did an interview trip. But only if you stick with them and look over their shoulders you realize what’s in their heads just now.
