Crimson is the fifth album by Alkaline Trio and reached #25 Billboard 200, #25 Digital Chart and #34 in the UK Chart.
We just spent a little more time in all areas of the recording process. We spent a little more time in pre-production, where we worked on the songs with Jerry. Before we started recording, he came out to Chicago and [came to practices] and he was listening to the songs, and we had an opportunity to ask him what he thought. It kind of gave us more time to re-work some stuff that we thought could have been a little better but were a little stumped on, as Jerry had good ideas for the songs.
To me, recording was like being in a playground. It’s just like, “Let me play this one. Let me try this.” Every bass track on the record was recorded with an old Marshall guitar amp.
