Trigger Point Re-Issues Debut Album, A Silent Protest; Debuts Uplifting Single

March 31 — Independent aggro-rock band Trigger Point’s debut album, A Silent Protest, is getting renewed attention after the band recently gained control of the album’s master recordings.

In gaining control of the recordings the band re-issued the album — which was originally released independently in the early 2000s and then re-issued in 2005 through Corporate Punishment Records — last month. The 13-song record was produced and mixed by Logan Mader (Machine Head, Five Finger Death Punch).

In celebration of the album’s latest re-issue, the band debuted the album’s single, ‘Picking Up The Pieces‘ and its video late last month. The song’s musical arrangement immediately throws back to the aggro-rock sounds of the late 90s and early 2000s, what with the distinct vocals and guitar riffs. The whole of the arrangement makes it easily comparable to works from the likes of 36 Crazyfists, Taproot, Deftones, and others of that ilk. Fittingly, Trigger Point has toured with 36 Crazyfists.

According to front man Taylor Wallace, the lyrical theme in the newly released single is meant to deliver an uplifting message of overcoming adversity in life.

“‘Picking up the Pieces’ is one of the most meaningful songs on the album,” Wallace said. “It speaks of someone who despite being hurt and knocked down over and over again, they are still willing to pick themselves up and keep going. It was deeply personal to me then and still rings true now. Releasing this album has been a long time in the making and it’s great to give the fans what they have been asking for all these years.”

The video that accompanies the single is a familiar, straight forward style presentation. It features vintage footage of the band on stage and out and about as the song plays over the visualization.
