With the April 2nd release date of Alkaline Trio’s 8th studio album, My Shame Is True, fast approaching, the band have released another “lyric” video for their new track, The Torture Doctor. It’s another solid song from the group that definitely reflects the sound of their last full-length, This Addiction, while maintaining a bit of a harder edge to the overall production. As someone who loathes when music videos are just the band standing around playing, I can say that I’ve been digging these “lyric” videos (you can see the first one for the song I Wanna Be A Warhol here) and I hope there’s more on the way.
Along with the new video, the band has also announced a North American tour with previous tour mates Bayside. The tour will kick off April 25th in Santa Ana, CA and will take the band across the country for two months with the tour making its way back to California as it concludes on June 8th in Los Angeles.
