Hear New Sound: Alkaline Trio's "Clavicle"

The label "Hear New Sound" may be slightly misleading in this case, as any Alkaline Trio fan knows that "Clavicle" is a track off the pop punk rockers' seminal 1998 debut, Goddamnit. However, to mark 15 years together as a band, the morbid Chicago-based musicians will be releasing Damnesia, an album filled with old favorites "reimagined" on July 12th through Epitaph Records (They'll also be celebrating the anniversary touring alongside their idols and fellow Chicagoans, The Smoking Popes.) In this case, "Clavicle" has been stripped down to its bare bones (pun intended?) Brings new meaning to the lyrics, "I want to wake up naked next to you," huh? Okay, I'll stop now with the wordplay and just let you remember what it's like to be a 14-year-old discovering punk music for the first time all over again in a totally different light...
