Alkaline Trio just announced three shows in their hometown of Chicago at Metro in January. This will be their first live performance since March.
Matt Skiba, who is also the guitarist and vocalist of Blink-182, talked about Alkaline Trio working on their ninth album back in July with The Daily Record. “I’ll be writing for a new Alkaline Trio record while on this summer tour so once things with Blink cool down a bit, the Trio can go in and make a new record and start touring again while Blink is on break.”

Presale tickets went on sale immediately after the band posted about the shows on their social media, but were quickly sold out. If you didn't get your tickets, don't worry because the band wrote on Facebook “Shows are NOT sold out. This was only limited number of tickets for the fanclub presale. This Friday at noon is when the majority of tickets will be available.”
Alkaline Trio's last album, My Shame is True, was released in 2013 and reached 24 on the Billboard 200.
These shows continue Alkaline Trio's habit of performing in their hometown. The last time the band played in a city that wasn't Chicago was in August of 2015 for Riot Fest Denver.
