Alkaline Trio on How the Music Industry Has Changed

The punk band reflect on technology, live shows and fans at New Orleans' Voodoo Fest

Illinois punk band Alkaline Trio formed in 1996, broke through in 2001 with their From Here to Infirmary album and have consistently rocked loyal fans ever since.

So when Fuse caught up with Alkaline Trio at Voodoo Music Experience 2013, we got their thoughts on how things have changed since they first got together.  

"The industry itself has changed a lot," drummer Derek Grant says. "The way people release and record music has changed a lot with the technology. But thankfully, people are still coming to shows. That's the one aspect that hasn't changed. People still want to see a good live show, and that's always been our focus."
