Fusing the upbeat, melodic feel of metal with the driving, soaring sounds of hard rock, Spring the Trap offers the perfect mix of energy and depth, delivering heavy music with an accessible radio rock vibe.
Comprised of veteran members of the Pacific Northwest music scene, Spring the Trap began work on their debut release immediately upon completing the lineup in the fall of 2012. The band recorded and produced the record themselves, releasing it at at the group’s first live performance at The High Dive in Seattle, WA.
The tracks "Lucid" and "Gone" have been particularly well received by audiences. "Brainstorm" and "Faceless" showcase the band's love of thrash metal, while "The Maze" is structured around the soft verse/big chorus tradition that sinks the hook in deep. The EP takes a brief rest with the airy, ethereal acapella vocal layering of "In an Instant" before rushing back into the wall of distorted guitars and pounding rhythms that define the band's sound.
Spring the Trap is currently working to promote the release and build upon their already growing fan base through editorial coverage, radio airplay, online streaming, and frequent live performances.
