Alkaline Trio cover Archers of Loaf - "Web In Front"

Alkaline Trio covers Archers Of Loaf

Starbucks aside, this is, by far, the coolest thing ALK3 has done in the past five or six years. I admire their venture back into the realm of punk-infused satan-pop, but something about three men in their mid-30's trying to recreate the great music they wrote when they were in their 20's just doesn't sit right with me. I'll always have a soft spot for Alkaline Trio, though, and the likes of Godammit!, From Here to the Infirmary, and Good Mourning will never be stranger to my car's CD changer.

Also, the original version of "Web In Front" and the Archers of Loaf album it comes from, Icky Mettle, are more than worth checking out. Archers of Loaf are (or were) a tragically underrated band. And the video really couldn't be much better.
