Trixter Brings Original Lineup to ‘New Audio Machine’
Trixter have returned after a two-decade hiatus. The band's original lineup -- which apparently hasn't aged a day -- reunited for 'New Audio Machine,' hitting shelves and digital retailers on Apr. 24.
The Paramus, N.J. natives teamed up with producer Chuck Alzakian for the new record, which should yield some pretty interesting results -- Alzakian's past clients include Tesla, Elton John and Christina Aguilera. Also throwing their hats and songwriting skills into the mix are Skid Row's Rachel Bolan and Snake Sabo, as well as Styx's Glen Burtnik. If that's not an eclectic mix of rock, we don't know what is.
'New Audio Machine' is Trixter's first new album in 20 years, and the band believes it to be their best. "After all these years playing and recording with this band, I would say I am most proud of this record," frontman Pete Loran said.
Those are pretty big words considering Trixter's past successes. Their 1990 self-titled debut was certified gold and spawned the singles 'Surrender,' 'One In a Million' and 'Give It to Me Good.' In the band's prime, they performed in front of audiences 35,000 strong and shared stages with Kiss, Poison, Boston and the Scorpions (to name a few).
"'New Audio Machine' is everything Trixter was and everything we are now," lead guitarist Steve Brown assured. "I can't wait for the world to hear it."
