Alkaline Trio’s Derek Grant Streams Debut Solo Album ‘Breakdown’

Derek Grant wrote a majority of his debut full-length Breakdown years ago, although it wasn’t until recently that he decided to share it with the world. Sometimes it’s hard to step away from one of the biggest bands in the music scene (Alkaline Trio) to find some time to release a new project.

Stepping away from behind the drum set and making his way to the front of the stage, Grant explores some of the darker parts of life through this therapeutic and cathartic piece. The album is formally released today, so if you like what you hear, you can …

Apparently, Fat Mike has been working on this for years with Tony Award-winning producer Jeff Marx (Avenue Q) and Soma Snakeoil. Here is what Fat Mike told Rolling Stone about the collaboration:

Alkaline Trio To Perform All 8 Albums Over 4 Nights In 3 Cities Later This year

Alkaline Trio have released eight studio albums during their time together as a band, which makes developing a set list for any outing incredibly hard.

In an attempt to please both sides of this equation, Alkaline Trio announced today that they will perform all eight studio album live this fall during four night runs in three cities across the US. The band will perform …
