DS Exclusive: Tom Rheault (No Trigger) gives DS a quick run down about the bands absence, the new record and the future

No Trigger disappeared for while but they’re back in business, baby!  The band released “Canyoneer” back in 2006, toured their asses off for a few years then everything went quiet in the camp. After the unintended break the band released the EP, “Be Honest” in 2010 and a full length is expected for release in 2011. Get stoked on it!

The band will be stepping out this week to lose their Australian tour virginity.  Vocalist, Tom Rheault took a few minutes to tell us at Dying Scene why they were away for so long, what their return means for affiliated side projects, signing to No Sleep Records and the No Trigger / A Wilhelm Scream connection. You can read the full interview here.

If, like me, you are lucky enough to be in an Australian capital city over the next week, check the dates, get your ass a ticket and get to their show!

To hear a couple of the tracks performed by No Trigger, Smartbomb, and a few more go here.

Here is the official statement about the release:

Part of the problem with doing a “tribute” record is the inevitable comparison to the original recordings and the need to live up to the band’s legacy. So let’s get one thing straight: “Carry the Torch” is not a Kid Dynamite record. This record will never be as good as the first time you heard Kid Dynamite at the Manville Elks Lodgeand will probably not stir another reunion at the Church. What it is, is an affirmation of the profound effect of Kid Dynamite to current hardcore punk bands worldwide, even years after their breakup. Our hopes are that listening to this album will take you back so that you recall the feelings you did get from the initial listen to your first Kid Dynamite song. This is the bands way of saying thanks for influencing them to start bands and play music.
