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 track list.

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.

They are listed as support act in many European dates of the 2011 tour of the band Within Temptation.

In April 2012, an acoustic cover of Lykke Li's pop hit "I Follow Rivers" reached number one in Belgium and abroad in the Netherlands and Austria.

On July 7, 2012, they performed before the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Tony Thompson heavyweight title fight, which took place in Bern, Switzerland.

On December 8, 2012, they won four Belgian Music Industry Awards or MIAs (hit of the year, best group, best alternative music and best live-act).

The band supported the Rolling Stones on July 6, 2013 during the Barclaycard Summer Time Festival n in Hyde Park, London.

On November 4, 2013, they started recording their fourth studio album in Los Angeles, which was released on 18th April 2014.  The name of the album is By Absence Of The Sun.

I Follow Rivers


"I Follow Rivers" is a song by Swedish recording artist Lykke Li from her second studio album, Wounded Rhymes (2011). Produced by Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, it was released on 21 January 2011 as the album's second single.  The track premiered exclusively on SPIN.com on 10 January 2011.  The music video, directed by Tarik Saleh and filmed at Närsholmen on the Swedish island of Gotland, features Li in a black robe and veil chasing a man (Swedish-Lebanese actor Fares Fares)  through a snowy landscape.

Belgian DJ/producer The Magician remixed and reworked "I Follow Rivers" in 2011, peaking at number one in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania. Number two in Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Netherlands. Number 3 in France. The remix was deemed "90's house".  Belgian band Triggerfinger covered "I Follow Rivers" in 2012, peaking at number one in Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands.
