No Trigger Release New Music Video

No Trigger have released a new music video for the song “Checkmate.” Directed by Shane Uriot, the video is composed of live footage shot at shows in Providence, Rhode Island and The Fest in Gainesville, Florida. From the looks of it, the Worcester, Massachusetts band’s live shows are just as energetic as their gruff punk anthems. Check out the clip after the break.

“Checkmate” appears on No Trigger’s second full-length, Tycoon, which was released in early 2012 on No Sleep Records. It’s one of the best punk albums of the past few years, so if you enjoy the track …

REVIEW: No Trigger – Tycoon

Artist: No Trigger
Album: Tycoon
Genre: Punk/Rock
Label: No Sleep

My name is Tyler, and I’m turning 20 years old in 8 days from when this was published. Right now I’m taking a break from going to school so that I can work 60 hours a week in order to go back to school. I sit in a cubicle for eight hours a day, then for the next four I troubleshoot computers …


STREAM: No Trigger – Checkmate

Massachusetts-based punk-hardcore band No Trigger released a new song called Checkmate off of their upcoming sophomore album Tycoon, which can be heard after liking their facebook. Checkmate keeps the signature No Trigger fast-paced punk sound, with vocals and guitar work that heavily improve in quality from their previous releases (the album was recorded by Defeater’s guitarist Jay Maas). Fans of old punk-hardcore acts Kid Dynamite and Lifetime will feel right at home here with fast chord changes and scratchy, honest vocals.

Tycoon comes out on February 21, via No Sleep Records, and the record will mark their first full-length …
