Taproot continue on the road to victory with 'The Everlasting' as they beat out Charm City Devils over the weekend in the last Cage Match, but can they do it again against today’s challengers?
Taproot were set to celebrate the release of their latest album 'The Episodes' earlier this year, but things took a turn when singer Stephen Richards began to battle a serious health condition, which has resulted in multiple seizures.
Michigan-based hard rockers Taproot came up in the early 2000s, a period when Michigan’s music scene was all about hip-hop and electronica, and the boys carried the torch for riff-heavy, alternative metal with a razor-sharp edge. On ‘The Episodes,’ Taproot hold onto shades of the sound that made them a chart-topping rock band, while expanding and updating it for 2012.
Michigan rock band Taproot is about to release their latest album, 'The Episodes,' on April 10. The band has already cranked out one tune before the album's official release with 'No Surrender,' and now they've gifted their fans once again with the release of the track 'Around the Bend.'
Taproot’s sixth studio album ‘The Episodes’ is a concept disc that was conceived even before the band released its 2010 album ‘Plead the Fifth.’ Frontman Stephen Richards holds onto his unique distorted, melodic vocals while also belting out thick growls throughout some of the tracks.
