The band gained a small amount of popularity while performing prior to the band's debut album. They 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 well received by rock fans, with the band's sound being compared to bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, by the younger audience, and Led Zeppelin, by the older rock fans.
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 break through in Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2009, What Grabs Ya? was re-issued, with several new songs added to the tracklist.
The third studio album, All This Dancin' Around, was released in November 2010. The recordings of this album took place in the Sound City Studios in North Hollywood, California. The release of this album managed to increase the band's popularity in Belgium and the Netherlands with minor success.
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.
