Alkaline Trio Turns Turmoil into Tune

Alkaline Trio is back with a bang, dropping their latest single, “Bad Time,” from the upcoming album Blood, Hair and Eyeballs. Frontman Matt Skiba shares a chilling inspiration behind the song: a real-life crisis involving a friend and an active shooter. Amidst the chaos, his friend’s call became a beacon of normalcy.

“We could hear gunshots and sirens as the situation escalated. My friend asked if it was a bad time to talk, and I said no – I really wanted to speak with her. It was actually a terrible and terrifying time, but it was never a bad time to hear her voice,” Skiba recounts.

This intense experience inspired the song and underscored the power of human connection in times of distress. Blood, Hair and Eyeballs is set to hit the shelves on January 26th, promising to be another milestone in Alkaline Trio’s storied career.  Watch “Bad Time.” Also, learn more about their upcoming Salt Lake City show below.
