Remains is a compilation album from Alkaline Trio that was released on January 30, 2007. The album is a collection of 22 tracks that the band has recorded for various compilations, EPs, B-sides and international releases. The disc also includes three new live tracks from a 2006 concert at Avalon in Los Angeles. Vocalist/guitarist, Matt Skiba describes the collection as "an unintentional sort of bookend for our career thus far."[1]

The album peaked at #64 on Billboard 200.

A DVD that includes 45 minutes of material, including all the band's videos from From Here to Infirmary, Good Mourning, and Crimson, accompanies the disc. Included is exclusive B-roll and behind-the-scenes footage from the band's live shows.

Origins of tracks[edit]

Scraps companion album[edit]

On Valentine's Day 2007, the band posted a bulletin on their MySpace giving a downloadable template and cipher. When printed and aligned correctly with the booklet in the Remains album, the template gave a user name and a password. When the cipher was deciphered, it gave a web address to go to. This website contained a downloadable album and cover file. The cipher and template accessible to Blood Pact members was different from those of the general public.
