Trapt Debut Two New Songs, Announce ‘Shadow Work’ Album
California hard rock vets Trapt will release Shadow Work, their ninth album, on June 19. The band has dished out a double dose of new songs, previewing the record with the "Make It Out Alive" and "Tell Me How You Really Feel" singles.
"'Make It Out Alive' was the last song written for our new album Shadow Work and I hope it inspires people to never give up," said singer Chris Taylor Brown. "Times can get so tough and it can be easy to just want to let go of all the struggle. But I think the struggles we go through define us," he continued, adding, "Each crisis we go through, staring into an abyss of the unknown, makes us stronger when we come out the other side. I know that we will come out stronger, as a country and as a world, through the current crisis we find ourselves battling and every other crisis that comes our way in the future. We always do!"
Listen to both songs below.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Brown notably became entangled in an ongoing Twitter feud through Trapt's official account, sparring with fans as well as members of prominent rock and metal groups. The basis of this back and forth stemmed from the frontman's stance on the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent government action on both the local and federal levels.
