No Trigger is a melodic hardcore band from Massachusetts, United States.


The band formed in 2000, with a sound which takes cues from like-minded outfits such as Strike Anywhere and None More Black. The band self-released two demos, one of them a split with Wasteland. By this point the band had started to gain accolades from the webzine likes of Pastepunk and Punknews, the latter of which referred to No Trigger as close to being "the best unsigned band in America".

In late 2004, the band compiled these recordings and remastered the sound for their seven track debut release, Extinction in Stereo, released on independent record label Bigmouth Japan. The players were Tom Ciesluk on bass, Mike Ciprari on drums, Mike Przygoda and John Strada on guitar, Tom Rheault on vocals. The engineers were Will Killingsworth and Nick Rotundo.

In 2005, No Trigger signed to independent record label Nitro Records, and their debut full-length, entitled Canyoneer, was released on March 21, 2006.[1]

A long period of inactivity following Canyoneer lead to speculation that No Trigger had broken up. The band released an update in September 2010 which announced that the original lineup had reformed and were going to release Be Honest, a 7" EP on December 14, 2010.[2] The band announced that they had signed to No Sleep Records shortly after the release of the EP, and anticipate a full-length release in mid-2011.[3] Their second album, Tycoon, was recorded with producer Jay Maas beginning in July, 2011,[4] and was released in early 2012.[5] At that time the release the band members included vocalist Tom Rheault[6] and drummer Mike Ciprari.
