Video: Exclusive Triggerfinger live footage
Triggerfinger are a fiery three-piece from Antwerp consisting of guitarist and singer Ruben Block, drummer Mario Goossens and bassist Paul Van Bruystegem (aka Monsieur Paul).
The Belgian band, who cite The Cramps, Howlin’ Wolf, the Black Crowes, The Cult and Led Zeppelin as their influences, have toured relentlessly playing at clubs, pubs and festivals throughout Europe to develop their fierce and uncompromising sound. What’s more, they’ve just been added to the line-up for the Rolling Stones’ Hyde Park gig in London on June 6.
Triggerfinger’s third album All This Dancin’ Around was produced by Greg Gordon (Oasis, Wolfmother, Slayer and Soulwax) in Los Angeles’ famous Sound City studio (where Fleetwood Mac made Rumours, Nirvana Nevermind and Queens Of The Stone Age Songs For The Deaf).
Big things are expected of the album, which is out today (April 15) via the Dramatico label.
Monsieur Paul recalls: “It was the first time in my career that I came out of the studio and realised that everything actually sounded even better than I thought it did in the studio at the time.”
Triggerfinger were in London last month to play a show at Islington’s The Garage. We filmed two songs from the show – I’m Coming For You and On My Knees – and you can watch them below.
