Music has always had a way of helping us all cope with unpleasant times. We can only hope that ours can do the same for our fans on some level. We hope you enjoy the songs.”

The EP will also be released physically on a limited-edition two-song 7”. There will be 1000 blue variants available in the US and 500 red vinyl in Europe. The two songs included will be Minds Like Minefields, Radio Violence.

[Radio Violence is] a song about communication breakdowns,” says bassist Dan Andriano. It’s about the lies we tell ourselves and others and it’s about shutting out those closest to us when we need them most.” 

This is the first new music we’ve heard from Alkaline Trio since 2018’s Is This Thing Cursed? studio album. Since then, Matt has been busy in his other job’ with blink-182, releasing album Nine last year.
