Alkaline Trio has officially returned with their new song “Blackbird.” The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming release Is This Thing Cursed?

The new record will be the band’s ninth studio album, which will be a follow-up to the band’s 2013 album, My Shame Is True.

It looks as though the trio’s upcoming release will be coming a lot sooner than we think. It seems that the band’s new record will be out on Aug. 31! You can grab your preorder of it here.
