Some things just never change, as is the case in the video for the title track of Alkaline Trio's latest album, "Blood, Hair, And Eyeballs". The video is set in a sunny skate park, however something appears to have been at the barbecue as the people on their boards, including skate legend Steve Caballero, circling the band turn into zombies.
The Chicago boys' sense of humor remains as reliable as their musical tastes. The mix of melodic punk rock and a pinch of emo, the perfect combination of aggression and melancholy that has always characterized the band, is also noticeable here.
The song's title refers to frontman Matt Skiba's mother, who worked as an intensive care nurse and described particularly eventful nights as "Blood, Hair, And Eyeballs". With the new album, Alkaline Trio are setting another milestone in their band's history and are finally coming to Berlin in August.
