Trust for Liars / Bio

People are screaming “BRING BACK ROCK MUSIC” and here it is, Trust For Liars! Put aside the usual pigeonholes, things like style and genre classifications--it takes much more for a band to really make a personal connection with people. Trust For Liars understands this. The St. Petersburg, Florida-based alternative-rock quintet has made that direct musical connection in each of the shows they've played since their inception in 2011. “With crushing riffs and catchy hooks, Trust for Liars is poised to take the Tampa Bay Music Scene with a Vengeance,” Jon LaFrance of 97X, COX Communications, Tampa Bay, FL.

It's a mature insight for five young guys who don't take themselves too seriously, but then again Trust For Liars aren't your typical alternative rock band with members hailing from Florida, Pittsburgh, Boston and North Carolina. Nate Kuusela (vocals); Anthony Ellis (guitar); Steve Nevills (guitar); Chuck Barilla (drums); and Kyle Sokol (Bass) are all former members of some of Florida's top bands. They've created a superior example of affecting, personal and explosive rock that grabs listeners from the very first note! Like Sonny FM, they slam right into hard driving guitars and drums that take anyone within earshot on a rollercoaster ride through each tune.

Although the band has only been together for a year and half, from the beginning they landed national shows with bands such as; Sick Puppies, Hoobastank, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Less than Jake and 10 years to name just a few. Trust for Liars has gained a lot of credit, through the Florida Rock Circuit, as one of the top bands to see live. This can be attributed to the explosive live show TFL puts on. The entire band POURS their energy onto the stage, evident in the constant movement seen from every seat in the house. This band has a chemistry that can be felt from the back of the crowd to the front row with each band member feeding off the other. If you're looking for a show to give you a little extra fuel, add Trust For Liars to your must see list.

Tampa Bay Times recently made Trust for Liars a spot light artist saying:
Trust For Liars is a modern-rock super-group of sorts, with members hailing from well-known bands like Trace of Day (vocalist Nate Kuusela, drummer Chuck Barilla ) and Rude Squad (bassist Kyle Sokol). Along with guitarists Anthony Ellis and Steve Nevills, their new project is a crunching alternative act with searing vocals that is sure to make huge wave across the Tampa music scene fast.
