With every cut that bleeds out from Alkaline Trio’s upcoming full length My Shame Is True – out April 2 on Epitaph – we here at Under The Gun Review salivate a little bit more. This remains the case for “Torture Doctor”, which our good friends over at SPIN are streaming for your consideration.
Replete with “hey”s, “ho”s, driving riffs and rousing choruses referencing the south side (of Chicago? New York? San Francisco? Probably Chicago), the song proves that Matt Skiba and the rest of the Trio still have a lot to say. They’re not lacking in passion with which to say it either.
