Alkaline Trio just wrapped up their most recent tour — their first in many years. The band did so to promote their new album, Is This Thing Cursed?, which is due out this Friday, August 31st via Epitaph Records.
Throughout the tour, the band played two previously released songs — “Blackbird” and the title-track, “Is This Thing Cursed?” — and another unreleased track. Today, however, the band have officially released that song, “Demon and Division” — which you will find at the top of this post.
Due out on CD/digital on August 31, Is This Thing Cursed? will be released on vinyl on October 19. You can check out all current pre-order options here. In addition, the band will be heading back out on a west coast tour this fall — those dates can be found below.
