Trapt announce new album, release two singles

Posted by on May 18, 2020


Trapt has announced that they will be putting out a new album in time for summer. Shadow Work is slated for release on June 19. 

Along with the announcement, the band gave listeners a taste of what’s to come by sharing two of the album’s tracks, “Make It Out Alive” and “Tell Me How You Really Feel.

Frontman Chris Taylor Brown said about “Make It Out Alive” in a statement that it:

“was the last song written for our new album Shadow Work and I hope it inspires people to never give up. 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!”

Brown has been in the news a lot lately for his Twitter rants and threats against his fans, followers and fellow musicians, much of which has stemmed from his opinions about politics and the current pandemic.

Shadow Work is Trapt’s ninth studio album. It is the follow-up to 2016’s DNA. The album is available for pre-order now. Those who pre-order the album will get instant downloads of “Make It Out Alive” and “Tell Me How You Really Feel,” as well as a third new track, “Far Enough Away.”

Trapt are still slated to hit the road for a North American tour starting this summer that will take them through October. Dates can be found here.
