During a concert in May 2009, the band revealed that they are no longer signed to Epic Records and that they will release a new album through their own label later in the year. Recording began in July.[3] Five songs from the upcoming album ("This Addiction", "Dead On The Floor", "Dine, Dine My Darling", "Dorothy", and "Fruit Please") have been debuted on their tour with Saves the Day.

On July 30, 2009, the band posted a blog via MySpace, announcing that they will be entering the studio next week, and will be having a sale on their first CD in honor of their new album. On Twitter, Alkaline Trio stated they are hoping for a January 2010 release. It was confirmed in an interview that after Alkaline Trio is done recording the new album, Matt Skiba will record a solo album released by Asian Man Records. As stated, Matt Skiba said, "It will be great working with family again." Dan Andriano also has a side project going called the Emergency Room, he will be playing a few shows in the coming months.

On October 11, 2009, the band announced at Riot Fest their newest album was now complete.

On November 18, 2009, the band announced that they will be releasing their new album on their own newly formed label, Heart & Skull, a joint venture with Epitaph Records.[4] In the same article, Skiba also confirmed that the new, still-untitled album would be released on February 23 in 2010, with another new song announced, entitled "The American Scream."

On December 1 Alkaline Trio have confirmed to Rock Sound that the title of their new album will be This Addiction:

"It is the first song on the record and the title of our new album," said vocalist Matt Skiba. "The song takes heroin addiction as a metaphor for love. The whole record is really personal, all three of us have been through quite a bit since our last album [2008's Agony & Irony] and it is all expressed through this, all the songs are about the relationships we've been in and so the record has a constant theme."[5]
