Jon Strader of NO TRIGGER discusses pressures with new album, “Tycoon” to be released February 21st
Posted by Christine Palmer
Jon: A big relief. Honestly, a lot of the ideas, parts, and some of the songs have been floating around for years now. To have them finally tracked, was the best feeling. We even recorded the first song we ever wrote as a band.
Jon: I don’t think it has changed our song writing process. Tycoon is a No Trigger record. What’s amazing is seeing the style genre that is booming now. There are so many great bands coming out making killer records that sound like we are back in late 90’s early 2000 punk. It’s about time.
Jon: Well thank you. That is the reason why we knew we needed to get this record finished. Of course there is pressure. We wrote Canyoneer almost 7 years ago now. The maturity in our song writing and lyrics can definitely be heard on this record. We actually have all the original members back in the band who recorded Canyoneer. The pressure comes from our only full length being able to carry us for this long. We knew we had to exceed that to carry us another 7 at least.
Jon: Our brothers in AWS have been around with us from the start. We come from the same Massachusetts mentality. It just works. We also have traveled the world with Set Your Goals. Those have been some of the most memorable times to date.
Jon: Marathon from Rochester, NY. Members have gone on to play in Polar Bear Club and Attica! Attica! but we all know that. Right!?
Jon: We are currently sorting out some worldwide excursions of course. CD release shows are being planned for March as well. Hopefully we’ll be back to Fest in Florida this October. That’s the best weekend to look forward to all year.
