It's been almost 15 years since Alkaline Trio released their debut studio album, and that time spent together has refined the band's chemistry. In their new video for "I, Pessimist," the rockers offer a revealing look into the studio as they rehearse and record the track. Their sharp punk has a bite as strong as ever, but despite the title, there are plenty of smiles and friendship here. Recording is hard work, but Alkaline Trio make it look fun and easy – even if they're singing about losing their minds to alcohol. "I, Pessimist" will be on Alkaline Trio's forthcoming album, My Shame Is True, out April 2nd.This article originally appeared on Rolling Stone: Alkaline Trio Offer Glimpse of Studio in 'I, Pessimist' – Premiere
