No Trigger have never been a band to rush things. After releasing their first full-length album “Canyoneer” back in 2006 to widespread acclaim from both critics and fans, the band seemingly dropped off the map, and rumours quickly began to spread that the band had broken up. Luckily, as with most rumours, this was far from the case. 2010 see’s the band’s original lineup back together, and delivering their first release in over four years. The new 7” entitled Be Honest, released through Mightier Than Sword Records, shows a band who’ve lost none of the passionate lyrics, stick-in-your-head melodies and sing/shout/scream-along choruses that once saw them declared "the best unsigned band in America" by Punknews.org.
2011 will see No Trigger head back into the studio to record their second full length album, and follow up to “Canyoneer.” Before that happens though, they’ll be making a long awaited visit to our shores for their first ever Australian Tour.
Coming along for the ride are one of the most talked about new bands of recent times. Such Gold have only been around since 2009, but in that time they’ve generated the sort of respect that normally takes years to achieve, thanks to a gruelling tour schedule and two widely praised releases – 2009’s “Stand Tall” EP (released on Mightier Than Sword Records), and their latest effort “Pedestals” (released on 6131 Records), which shows a band who have honed their finely tuned brand of upbeat pop punk-meets-melody driven hardcore, and in testament to their rapidly rising stature, Pedestals features guest appearances from the likes of Karl Buechner of hardcore legends Earth Crisis, and Kenny Vasoli of The Starting Line/Person L fame. Their trip down under sees Such Gold embarking on their first international tour, though it will surely not be their last.
