Alkaline Trio sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss their upcoming album Is This Thing Cursed?.
When speaking about the album’s title, frontman Matt Skiba said:
“It’s an idea that spurred in my head about being in the throes of depression. Being stuck in those moments, looking around and feeling like it doesn’t matter what you do or where you’re at, things don’t seem to be going right. And a lot of the times, we look for things to blame and we look for other things instead of looking inward. You know, I was not officially diagnosed with depression until about three years ago. I’ve never mentioned that, like, publicly or anything — I just assumed everyone else knew. But it’s something I always felt was there.”
