Short of Green Day, it's hard to find a pop-punk band that's kept up a longer productive streak than Chicago's Alkaline Trio. The trio released its still-heralded debut "Goddamnit" in 1998, finding favor with fans who enjoyed bouncy melodies of the Promise Ring and/or Smoking Popes variety. The group eventually hooked up with Vagrant Records for three albums, becoming a cornerstone act of the trend-setting label. Now signed to Epic Records, Alkaline Trio's sixth LP "Agony & Irony" retains the group's youthful exuberance and marries it to stadium-sized hooks tailored for both longtime fans and new recruits.Note: American Steel and The Fashion are no longer on this bill.
