Alkaline Trio Perform "Cringe" for Guitar Center Sessions

June 17, 2013

 

The creators of Guitar Center Sessions are musicians themselves, so they have a very clear goals in mind when it comes to their nationally aired program: The want it to be the best sounding music show on the air, they want to give artists a platform to expose their music and they want to bypass the usual sensationalist television schtick.

“We wanted to make this show about the art,” says Executive Producer of 'Sessions, Dustin Hinz. “We're musicians so we [wanted to make it so] when you watch the show, you're actually inspired to pick up an instrument.”

Today, we’re giving you a preview of this Friday’s session, featuring Alkaline Trio with a performance clip of their classic and fan-beloved “Cringe,” the opening track from the band’s debut full-length, Goddamnit!.

“[Cringe] is a pretty fun, high-energy tune, and the few fans we had at the time [we released it] really responded to it,” says Alkaline Trio vocalist/bassist Dan Andriano. “I love playing it to this day because it reminds me of that energy and the connection we began to share with the crowd, which is something we've strived to maintain to this day.”

Tune in this Friday, June 21, at 9 p.m. ET to catch ‘Trio’s session on Direct TV.
