When he was three years old the family moved to McHenry in Illinois, however, he was a student at Chicago’s Columbia College, but dropped out in 1996 to pursue a career in the music industry. He formed the band Alkaline Trio with the drummer Glenn Porter and the bassist Rob Doran, and the band soon released their first demo and single “Sundials”, and then began recording their first EP, “For Your Lungs Only”. The band released their first studio album – “Goddamnit” – in 1998 under the label of Asian Man Records, soon followed by another album “Maybe I’ll Catch Fire” (2000), and the compilation “Alkaline Trio” (2000).

The formation of the band changed in 2000 when Glenn Porter left and drummer Mike Felumlee replaced him. “From Here to Infirmary” (2001) was released under the Vagrant Records label in the spring of 2001. With the cooperation of new drummer Derek Grant, the album “Good Mourning” was released in 2003, shortly before the release of which Skiba recorded a solo EP with help from Kevin Seconds. Also aside from the band, he contributed to the compilation of Fat Wreck Chords Project: A Benefit For The National Association To Protect Children, with the song “Demons Away”.

Then “Agony & Irony”, their first album under the label Epic Records was released in the summer of 2008, and at the beginning of 2010 the album “This Addiction” followed, on their own record label Heart & Skull. In 2012 and 2013, Matt recorded studio albums with the bands Sekrets and the Hell, but in 2013, Alkaline Trio released the studio album entitled “My Shame Is True”. In 2015, Tom DeLonge left the band Blink-182 and Skiba took over his position, and shortly afterwards released the album “California” (2016). His net worth continued to rise.
