, Staff

With a brand new album to support, Alkaline Trio will return to the road this spring for a nationwide tour. The veteran punk rockers from Chicago will make their way to Boston for a show at the House of Blues on Saturday, May 18. Tickets for the show, which will also feature special guests Bayside, are available through Live Nation for $21.50 and $32.

My Shame Is True, Alkaline Trio’s ninth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Damnesia, hits stores today along with an accompanying EP, Broken Wing. It was recorded last fall with Bill Stevenson of punk legends The Descendents and Black Flag and with Jason Livermore at the producers’ Blasting Room Studios in Colorado. For the first time ever on an Alkaline Trio record, My Shame Is True features a guest appearance from Rise Against’s Tim Mcllarth on “I , Pessimist”. The video for lead single “I Wanna Be A Warhol” is streaming below.

“We’re very proud of it,” declared guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba in a press release. “Once we got in the studio, the songs really took on a shape of their own.”

Bayside are reportedly working on their sixth studio album and first since 2011’s Killing Time.

Following the show in Boston, Alkaline Trio will travel south for a show at Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut on Sunday, May 19.
