The Antwerp, Belgium based trio (Ruben Block, vocals & guitar; Paul Van Bruystegem, bass; Mario Goossens, drums) have built a solid reputation across Europe, the US and Canada as one of the hardest-driving and sharpest dressing bands around. With their selftitled debut album (2004), What Grabs Ya (2008), All This Dancing Around (2010) and By
Absence of the Sun (2014) they’ve become a mainstay on the rock scene (the last two going platinum and gold, respectively). Their impromptu cover of the Lykke Li song I Follow Rivers became a major hit across Europe in 2012, and they were invited to open for The Rolling Stones in 2013 and 2014.
After four studio albums and the massive touring that came with it, it was time for a change. While writing COLOSSUS Triggerfinger wanted to add a few new flavors to the mix. COLOSSUS – which includes the strutting new single Flesh Tight – offers killer guitar riffs, breezy melodies & festive glam rock, all in a mind-bending production by Mitchell Froome and Tchad Blake, turning this album in a wild ride on a merry-go-round in
Disneyland after dark.
The band set off on a 40 date tour across 15 European countries with a first gig on Oct. 7 at King Tut’s in Glasgow, and stops in Paris, London, Berlin, Warzaw, Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava, Prague, Copenhagen,Oslo, Amsterdam, Brussels and Luxembourg.
