Scared Straight

Alkaline Trio gets clean on its pristine new LP

Unlike Green Day, the poster boys for prolonged pop-punk success, Alkaline Trio has evolved glacially, with each album selling a few more copies than its predecessor. Crimsonappeared in the BillboardTop 40, while 2003's Good Mourning barely dented the Top 200. With its genuine affection for pristine production and its rebellious-teen-friendly style and sentiments, Alkaline Trio could make a bigger splash with its next release. The seeds for a greater success have already been planted, as the band has graduated to larger festivals like this summer's Leeds and Reading events in England, where Alkaline Trio played in front of 35,000 people at 2 p.m.

Fiendishly good: Two-thirds of Alkaline Trio belong to 
the Church of Satan.
