Paul Van Bruystegem
Triggerfinger is a Belgian rock band from Lier, Belgium, formed in 1998. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Ruben Block, bassist Paul Van Bruystegem and Mario Goossens (formerly of Winterville) as drummer.
The band gained 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 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 with moderate success.
