Triggers & Slips
Trigger (n): An event that occurs in an individual’s life which causes significant enough psychological trauma to “trigger” the individual into abnormal behavior.
Slip (n): An incident wherein a person veers away from an intended path of behavior by engaging in behavior that he had agreed with himself not to engage in, thereby “slipping” from his agreed upon moral path.
Triggers and Slips music is steeped in the psychology of relationships. Like so much great country music that came before, theirs originates in personal mistakes and stepped on hearts. While the band’s music is a blend that’s not quite country and not quite rock n’ roll, and not quite alt-country either, fans of both types of music have come to love their sound. It doesn’t matter if you want to bang your head, sit and cry into your whiskey, or fortify yourself with enough righteous anger to burn down the one that did you wrong’s house after you hacked his email and found out which bitch he was cheating on you with, Triggers and Slips has your number.
