Posted by Kaylee McNeil on Monday, November 24, 2014 at 3:24 PM (PST)

Alkaline Trio drummer Derek Grant has started a rock solo side-project and has recently released some details about his debut solo album, Breakdown. Slated for release on January 20, 2015 via Red Scare Industries, the album will feature eight emotionally-charged tracks of the multi-instrumental artist’s creation. It is available for pre-order here.

On the album, Grant commented:

Breakdown just seemed appropriate for what I was going through at the time. My relationship had fallen apart and I was dealing with it in some very unhealthy ways. The upside was I started writing lyrics for the first time in nearly a decade.

Aside from his work with Alkaline Trio since 2001, Grant has also played in The Vandals and The Suicide Machines. has even filled in on guitar for Face To Face and The Gaslight Anthem.

It all began on a drunken winter’s evening, in one of Brooklyn’s premier punk dumps, when Justin Melkmann, renowned cartoonist/guitar player for NYC junk rock band World War IX, and his chum Early Gates from The Ray Gradys and Morning Glory, decided it was high time to combine two of their favorite genres, into one masterful masterpiece! Sharing an equal love for both, punk and country, these two inebriates hashed out a plan to cover 5 George Jones classics in the grand style of their beloved Ramones. Easy yet powerful chord progressions, coupled with simple yet soul wrenching lyrics are the calling cards for both of these musical genres, and Early and Justin believe the two styles click together perfectly! Oh, and this ain’t no rock-a-billy neither!

Stream “I’ve Got Five Dollars (And It’s Saturday Night)” off Early Gates & Justin Melkmann‘s “Jonesing For Some Jones” release below and pre-order the album right here.
