With its soaring vocals and furious intensity, ‘Is This Thing Cursed?’ is the second single to be released from the album. Last month, Alkaline Trio shared a song called ‘Blackbird’, which SPIN hailed as a “glossy, pristine pop-punk record that’s anthemic and a bit catchy in its breezy melodies.”

Produced and mixed by Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Motörhead), ‘Is This Thing Cursed?’ is the first Alkaline Trio album written almost entirely in the studio. According to the band, the album-making process was similar to that of ‘Maybe I’ll Catch Fire’ — Alkaline Trio’s darkly charged sophomore full-length, a 2000 release featuring the fan favorite ‘Radio.’
Due out on CD/digital on August 31, ‘Is This Thing Cursed?’ will be released on vinyl on October 19.
