Alkaline Trio Release Acclaimed New Album "Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs" + Watch The Video for "Break"


'“Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs” arrival is heralded by the latest video from the album, this time for standout track “Break.” Premiering yesterday on, “Break” captures the dark, alluring energy of a classic Alkaline Trio performance in stark and vivid black and white, the song’s infectious hooks and melodies offset — or possibly enhanced — by its backdrop of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater in Los Angeles.

“You ever see someone having such a horrible nervous breakdown that it looks like they’re dancing?” asks Alkaline Trio guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba. "Me neither. But this song is sorta' about that.”

Alkaline Trio dropped in at another hallowed L.A. theater earlier this week, taking the stage at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre as music guest for Tuesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! — To watch Skiba, bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano and new drummer Atom Willard knock out a captivating “Bad Time,” go to

Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs was recorded by Skiba, Andriano and since-departed drummer Derek Grant with GRAMMY winner Cameron Webb producing at Studio 606 in Northridge CA, and is the first Alkaline Trio album to be released via the band’s new label home, Rise Records.
