With their upcoming 5th studio album Colossus due out on the 25th August via Mascot Records, Antwerp’s Triggerfinger have announced a UK tour in October in support of this. Of the upcoming album, the bands frontman Ruben Block had the following to say:
“We wanted to get out of the rat race for a while. The first step was doing a few collaborations with other musicians that would kick us out of our comfort zone. It made us look at our songs in a different way. The second step was building our own little studio where we could work and wail 24/7. All amps on 10 at two in the morning? No problem! But there was more to it than sheer volume. The previous albums were all built on roaring energy and the live interaction between the three of us. That was not our main concern anymore. This time the song would be king. ‘Anything goes’, that was our motto. Acoustic instruments, samples, keyboards, percussion, two bass guitars: as long as they served the song, we were happy.
This must be the boldest thing we’ve ever done. We’ve been fans of Mitchell Froom’s work for a long time, but working with your heroes can be a dangerous thing. Mitchell proved to be comforting and challenging at the same time. He opened so many doors for us, and with COLOSSUS he put us on track for the next few years.”
