Alkaline Trio is a Chicago, Illinois based punk rock band founded in 1996. Their albums This Addiction (2010), My Shame Is True (2013), and Is This Thing Cursed? (2018) were released by Epitaph.
Jay and Greg Graffin cherish the band, and their affiliation dates back to when they both played Warped Tour together in the 2000s. Graffin actually compared their songwriting and catchiness to Bad Religion's.
