Triggerfinger is a Belgian rock band from Lier, formed in 1998. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Ruben Block, bassist Paul Van Bruystegem and Mario Goossens as drummer.
The band released their self-titled debut album ‘Triggerfinger’ in 2004, after previously having released the singles Inner Peace and Camaro from the album.
The album was followed by a live album called ‘Faders Up’, which featured several of their previous album's songs as well as a few covers of other bands. The following year, they released their next studio album called ‘What Grabs Ya?’, which, despite efforts, failed to make the band breakthrough in Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2009, What Grabs Ya? was re-issued, with several new songs added to the track list.
The release of their third album ‘All This Dancin’ Around’ managed to increase the band's popularity in Belgium and the Netherlands. The band performs at various festivals across Europe.
In April 2012, an acoustic cover of Lykke Li's pop hit "I Follow Rivers" (recorded at Dutch radio station 3FM in February) reached number one in both Belgium and The Netherlands, marking Triggerfinger's first Dutch chart hit.
At the end of 2012 the band won four Flemish Music Industry Awards or MIAs (hit of the year, best group, best alternative music and best live-act). In 2013 Triggerfinger supported the Rolling Stones and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The band started recording their fourth studio album in Los Angeles, which was released on 18th April 2014. The name of the album is ‘By Absence Of The Sun’
