Triggerfinger! The Belgian rockband at this moment. They are from Antwerp, and have been playing hard rock music for the last fourteen years on the alternative scene. After having played at some big festivals for years, Triggerfinger band finally broke through with their first number one hit ‘I Follow Rivers’. Their Lykke Li’s live cover became a huge hit in Europe. Read Triggerfinger interview here.
The Netherlands got to know them especially because of the show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ where Triggerfinger band stands out because of the charismatic singer Ruben, the energetic drummer Mario and the big bass player ‘Polle’. ‘Polle’ wanted to join the band so badly that he converted himself from guitar player to bass player. Guys from Triggerfinger band are friends and fans of each other.
It all started when Triggerfinger band took a chance of making a cover on Giel Beelen’s radio morning show. They arranged ‘I Follow Rivers’ by the Swedish singer Lykke Li in just 15 minutes. To the band’s surprise the song became a mega hit. Without this stroke of luck all their previous hard work would come down to nothing. Wishing Triggerfinger even more luck and great songs!
