Northwest of Chicago, in McHenry County, Illinois, the Alkaline Trio was born. The only surviving member of the original band, which consisted of drummer Glenn Porter and bassist Rob Doran, is Skiba. After the band's debut EP Sundials was released, Doran quit and Andriano, who made his recorded debut on For Your Lungs Only EP, took over. The Trio's fame increased both inside and outside of the Midwest, leading to the band signing with the small independent Asian Man and the release of its first two albums, Goddamnit and Maybe I'll Catch Fire, as well as a self-titled collection of the early EPs and other miscellaneous music.
Agony & Irony was the Alkaline Trio's first and final big label record. The band's greatest charting album of all time, Help Me peaked at #13 on the Billboard list and went on to become its highest charting single, reaching #14 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
This gets us to the current condition of Alkaline Trio, who are eagerly awaiting the release of an album with a label situation that they could not be happier with. Despite the fact that Skiba says in the song Draculina from the new album, "I wish to dwell, I long to be in the blood and guts with the birds of prey and the stinging of bees," Maybe this time, he's OK with where he is right now—by Alkaline Trio criteria, naturally..
