T.S.O.L. Signs With Rise Records and Releasing New Album in January

Music News | Nov 28th, 2016


Cali punk rock T.S.O.L. have signed with Rise Records and will be releasing a new album in the beginning of the year. Their 11th studio album called The Trigger Complex will be released on January 27th. Fans can pre-order the record now at tsol.merchnow.com.

T.S.O.L., short for True Sounds of Liberty, struck a nerve in the early 80’s with their defiant, politically charged self-titled debut EP. At the intersection of punk and gothic new wave, the band’s evolution of sound continued resulting in their critically heralded, full-length record Dance With Me (1981) as well as many other fan coveted albums, with various lineup changes and reunions along the way, that cemented their legacy in the punk scene as one of the most influential bands to come out of California.

Now, nearly four decades later, original members Ron Emory, Mike Roche and Jack Grisham have returned to creative heights with one of their most inspired albums in decades with The Trigger Complex. Comprised of thirteen songs, the band’s new record runs the gamut of charging punk anthems to brooding rock songs that will no doubt please listeners. Given the country’s turbulent, divisive political climate it could not be better timing for the return of one of punk’s most important and vocal bands.

Jack Grisham commented about the new album:

“It’s a great time to be making music; to have a voice that can be heard,” “I’m glad that things look bleak. Political turmoil breeds strength as well as strife. This record allows us to remind people that they aren’t alone. We’re here.”
