Triggerman will release their third album ‘Hail To The River Gods’ tonight at Masons Bar, with special guests, Half Shot.

Released on June 1, the album contains yet more examples of the band’s ability to fuse heavy riffs with aggressive grooves and huge choruses.

Recorded in Einstein Studios in Antrim, the band were pleased to have Frankie McClay producing, as he did with 2010’s release, ‘Brand New Day’. Their last album saw Triggerman gain attention at both national and international level. Metal Hammer called it, “a breath of fresh air to the genre,” with Classic Rock Magazine playlisting the opening track, ‘The Riff Holds Sway.’

From the opener, ‘Rage of the Goddess’ to the closing track, ‘Blind Side of the Moon,’ Triggerman have put together an album which continues with the band’s signature sound. Singer/Guitarist Bap says: “These new tunes sit well with our back catalogue. They sound great live as well as in the studio. We’ve tried some new ideas to keep it fresh, but it’s still Triggerma!”

Triggerman also play Sandinos Bar on June 7 alongside Swanee River. New album available at
