Nervous Triggers were formed in 2015 from four friends in their thirties from the New Jersey punk and hardcore scene. All four had done their time attending, playing, and booking shows in the New Brunswick, NJ basement scene for many years, before all four ended up living between exits 102 and 117 on the Garden State Parkway. The resumes of the collected four reads like a “who’s that?!” of New Jersey punk rock, with such bands as the Insults, Shitfit, Teen Wolves, Hunchback, Black Wine, Psyched To Die, Backpocket, brick mower, Sun Puddles, and Secretary Legs, to name a few. Between the four members, each was known for playing and loving diverse styles of punk rock, garage, surf, post-punk, indie rock, thrash, hardcore, and yes, even the occasional ska band. Inspired musically by all of the above, and lyrically by the personal and political struggles of life, they began writing songs together, and, taking their name from the song “Groovy Times” by the Clash, Nervous Triggers was born. Nervous Triggers are a punk rock band from the Jersey Shore.
