Latest Trigger Point News
Below is our complete Trigger Point news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
LA’s TRIGGER POINT has begun pre production on their new album tentatively titled Giving Up the Ghost with producer Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Will Haven, Demon Hunter) at the helm.
Says vocalist Taylor Wallace, “We are all very excited about making this record. It pretty much captures everything we have been through in the last three years. The music is epic to say the least. We have been working on it just about everyday for the last year, and are finally ready to get in the studio and bring it to life.”
The band is set to begin recording on November 3 at LA’s Bomb Shelter Studios. Sessions will be predicated by the band’s last show of the year on November 2 at the Key Club in Hollywood playing with DAUGHTERS OF MARA.
Corporate Punishment recording artists TRIGGER POINT will hit the road in July supporting Alaskan metalcore heroes 36 CRAZYFISTS for a cross-country trek covering the West Coast, Midwest, and South. TRIGGER POINT has been touring since 2005 in support of their debut album, "A Silent Protest". 36 CRAZYFISTS, who recently added their track "I'll Go Until My Heart Stops" to the "Headbanger's Ball: Revenge" CD, will release their third album, "Rest Inside The Flames", later this year on Roadrunner. Rounding out the bill is Portland's FALLING CLOSER and RE:IGNITION, featuring Steev Esquivel and Snake of SKINLAB, on select dates.
