The Triggermen

The Triggermen

BandHip Hop

Raw, hip-hop beats lay our foundation, but experimentation always persists in the forefront of our music; touching on styles from funk, piano bar, 80’s pop, Brazilian, love making to surf music. The Triggermen speak on behalf of the 90%, who deal with the same day-to-day issues.

Biography

We came together in 2002 as a product of the wack and corny crews who dominated the North Texas hip-hop scene, so for awhile we felt that we were on the outside looking in. Our sound seemed a little esoteric for the current wave of acts.

The fall of 2005 marked the release of “Prom Night,” the debut album from The Triggermen. This CD is a conceptual album, a telling tale of love, heartbreak, scandal, comedy, tragedy and, of course, dirty pillows. It’s like a 21st century Tempest or Romeo & Juliet, but with condoms and cars. This wistful ride takes you through the final stages of the life of a typical high-school senior and their preparations for the “greatest” night of their life. Their second album, "Bar Fights of the Cheap and Shameless," hits upon certain themes from "Prom Night," but goes in a different direction altogether. Our friends are all grown up now. Graduation is over and it's off to the real world, as life lessons come full circle and the lifestyles of sex, drugs and rock and roll, start interfering with long standing relationships. Booze, slowly but surely start to replace friends.
