The story of No Trigger begins in Massachusetts in the year 2000 when the impassioned hardcore punk outfit made their first splash with a series of self-released demos and split EPs, leading punk rock media outlets such as Pastepunk and Punknews to name them the best unsigned band of their time. Fast forward to 2006, countless live shows later, and the release of the band’s landmark debut (and to this point, only) full length album, Canyoneer on Nitro Records, an album that, regardless of any future releases, cemented the band’s legacy in punk rock forever. In February they released their latest album Tycoon and are about to go on a European tour on behalf of it.
“Tycoon I think is right where we always wanted to be sonically.” says front-man Tom Rheault. “The vocals are a lot heavier in spots than ever before, but the choruses are catchy and we have a bunch of interesting twists. We also did a bit more experimenting with structure and parts but it’s all still No Trigger. Lyrically this record is the most personal record we have ever written.”

Heartsounds came into being after the demise of Light This City, when Ben Murray and Laura Nichol decided to pursue their passion for punk rock by writing and recording a full length record consisting of 12 fast and melodic tracks. In March 2010, the band announced that they had signed with Epitaph with there 2nd album Drifter released on 22nd of July 2011.
