The album is due out August 9, 2011 via Asian Man Records and will be released under the name Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room. We first reported on the album's recording back in February. Andriano will be joining Chuck Ragan, Brian Fallon and Dave Hause on the European Revival Tour in the fall.
Second, Alkaline Trio has announced the title for their "re-recorded collection of catalog songs first announced in February. The record, due out on Epitaph Records, will be titled Damnesia. As first announced, the band selected songs from their catalog which includes Goddamnit, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, From Here To Infirmary, Good Mourning, Crimson, Agony & Irony and This Addiction to select songs for the collection.
