Triggerfinger - Let It Ride
‘Let It Ride’ is the magnetic new single from Belgian rock trio Triggerfinger, a fiery threepiece from Antwerp consisting of strong characters: guitarist and singer Ruben Block, drummer Mario Goossens and bassist Paul Van Bruystegem- aka Monsieur Paul.
Opening with a stimulating beat followed by exhilarating guitar riffs, the track shows off just how skilled Triggerfinger are when it comes to making impressive rock music. With its bluesy feel, strong bass and heavy drums, the track’s fiery intensity is complemented by the rich vocals resulting in an addictive anthem.
‘Let It Ride’ is taken from their third album ‘All This Dancin’ Around’ which is released in the UK on the 15th of April. The album recorded at the famous Sound City studio in Los Angeles, has a distinctive and original sound mixing garage and heavy rock with blues, astounding hooks and power riffs truly capturing the riveting power of their live performances. Triggerfinger’s strong bass lines and hard driving drums mix grandiose rock with Ruben Block’s smooth vocals balanced by moments of brooding introspection.
Triggerfinger’s winning Redbull Soundclash performance in March last year went viral and their recent support slots for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Within Temptation and Thin Lizzy have lifted the band to a new level making them one of Europe’s most sought after live bands. Having formed in 1998 Triggerfinger, who cite The Cramps, Howlin’ Wolf, The Black Crowes, The Cult and Led Zeppelin as their influences and are dubbed “the loudest band in Antwerp”, have toured relentlessly playing at clubs, pubs and festivals throughout Europe to develop their fierce and uncompromising sound.
In 2012 the band’s international profile was given a boost when they performed an acoustic cover of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ in a live radio session. An instant hit, the track was a released as a single and stayed at number one for 9 weeks in Belgium & 13 weeks in Holland, as well as reaching number one in Austria and Poland, top 10 in Germany and top 20 in Switzerland.
Triggerfinger have three live UK dates in March.
