Influential Southern California punk rock pioneers T.S.O.L. will make their awaited return in 2017 with a new record label and their 11th studio album. The band has announced today, they have signed with Rise Records and will release their highly anticipated album The Trigger Complex on January 27th. Fans can pre-order the record now at tsol.merchnow.com.

Today, T.S.O.L. has also debuted the upcoming record’s first new track, “I Wanted To See You,” which can be streamed now at https://youtu.be/jmRQtaptBBk.

T.S.O.L., short for True Sounds of Liberty, struck a nerve in the early 80’s with their defiant, politically charged self-titled debut EP. At the intersection of punk and gothic new wave, the band’s evolution of sound continued resulting in their critically heralded, full-length record Dance With Me (1981) as well as many other fan coveted albums, with various lineup changes and reunions along the way, that cemented their legacy in the punk scene as one of the most influential bands to come out of California.

Now, nearly four decades later, original members Ron Emory, Mike Roche and Jack Grisham have returned to creative heights with one of their most inspired albums in decades with The Trigger Complex. Comprised of thirteen songs, the band’s new record runs the gamut of charging punk anthems to brooding rock songs that will no doubt please listeners. Given the country’s turbulent, divisive political climate it could not be better timing for the return of one of punk’s most important and vocal bands.

“It’s a great time to be making music; to have a voice that can be heard,” says Grisham. “I’m glad that things look bleak. Political turmoil breeds strength as well as strife. This record allows us to remind people that they aren’t alone. We’re here.”
