The story of No Trigger begins in Massachusetts in the year 2000 when the impassioned hardcore punk outfit made their first splash with a series of self-released demos and split EPs, leading punk rock media outlets such as Pastepunk and Punknews to name them the best unsigned band of their time. Fast forward to 2006, countless live shows later, and the release of the band’s landmark debut (and to this point, only) full length album, Canyoneer on Nitro Records, an album that, regardless of any future releases, cemented the band’s legacy in punk rock forever. Such is the story of No Trigger, a band destined to release groundbreaking punk rock albums, riling up their fanbase, only to disappear into the abyss and return again years later.
That time, dear friends, is now.
On their sophomore release “Tycoon” (due February 2012 on No Sleep Records), No Trigger have compiled what is already being considered by many to be their greatest achievement to date, and an album sure to turn the entire punk rock community on its ear, again.
“Tycoon I think is right where we always wanted to be sonically.” says front-man Tom Rheault. “The vocals are a lot heavier in spots than ever before, but the choruses are catchy and we have a bunch of interesting twists. We also did a bit more experimenting with structure and parts but it’s all still No Trigger. Lyrically this record is the most personal record we have ever written.”
So why the wait? Why so long between albums? How can a band so great at what they do make their fans wait so long for new material? The answer is simple and all too obvious, “Life.” says Rheault. “Sometimes you gotta scale back a bit and focus on other things before you can move forward with a new album, and that’s what happened. We also had a few member changes in the interim and reverted back to more or less our original lineup. It’s true the last few years were pretty scarce as far as No Trigger activity goes, but a year ago we put out our Be Honest 7” and toured on it to Australia and also to Europe, which were both phenomenal tours. We also played a bunch of one off shows like Gainesville Fest and the Four Year Strong hometown holiday show and Groezrock in Belgium and such, so we’ve kept busy this year and plan to stay busy once Tycoon is released.”
All of which brings us to today and the band’s announcement of their new album Tycoon. Recorded in Massachusetts with Defeater guitarist Jay Maas, the album is No Trigger’s most punishing and inspired material to date. Made up of non-stop anthem after anthem, Tycoon is a pitbull off its leash, but also completely necessary, motivational, and perfect for its time.
“I can sum up what this album is to me in just one word,” says Rheault, “Important.”

We have two new Varsity Style jackets up for pre-order! One is our new Cult Jacket, and the other is a sweet take on the X Jacket that normally people have to get custom made! These jackets are expensive to make so they normally retail for $40 in our store, but during the pre-order you can get it for only $37!

“The modern college experience is one marked by imbibing enough booze to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool for four years on a nearly daily basis and a feeling of uncertainty regarding just what kind of life a degree in philosophy can earn a recent graduate. However, college does have its unexpected benefits, like being a great place for bands to meet and form.
Thanks to the University of Illinois, the five-piece that is Santah (guitarist/vocalist Stanton McConnell, drummer Steven Plock, bassist Otto Stuparitz, keyboard player Tommy Trafton, McConnell’s sister Vivian) got together to form this psychedelic Americana outfit (combining those genres probably required some advanced college coursework.) So, as they prepare to drop their debut album, White Noise Bed, this June, the band are premiering the title track right here, right now to get everyone ready for the big test.
While the title immediately brings to mind images of explosive noise, the song is a restrained and tightly constructed track of pure ’70s influence. With a hazy kind of twang, it should also garner comparisons to a more folksy version of Vampire Weekend or a younger, slightly more poppy Wilco and/or Whiskytown. However they got their sound, it’s definitely one worthy of lengthy exploration.
Check out the track and the tracklist below. White Noise Bed hits stores June 7th via No Sleep Records.”
We are super stoked to finally announce a 7” we have been working on since mid 2010. Please welcome Wharf Rats to No Sleep!
