Lauded as one of Decibel Magazine’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2016,” the as-yet-untitled new album by TRAP THEM has been completed and is expected to be released worldwide this fall. Once again, the band enlisted unofficial fifth member Kurt Ballou (Converge, Skeletonwitch) at GodCity Studios in Salem, Mass. to capture their unrestrained and unapologetic darkened hardcore sound.
Co-founder/guitarist Brian Izzi says, “We’re psyched on how the album came out and can’t wait for you all to hear it. More info on that soon.”
The group has also announced two headlining shows on the East Coast in May.
Adds Izzi, “New year, new set list. We added a bunch of Darker Handcraft songs to our set that we haven’t played in a while. West Coast: It’s been way too long and we’re working on getting out there later this year. UK/Europe: Yep, Working on that too. See you all soon.”

TRAP THEM’s venomous 2014 release Blissfucker – the follow-up to their acclaimed Prosthetic debut, Darker Handcraft – was hailed by Revolver Magazine as their “most dangerous declaration to date… contain(ing) some of the catchiest songs they’ve ever written” and saw the band co-headline the sold-out Deathwish Fest with Converge in addition to a handful of East Coast dates with Coliseum.
Limited quantities of Blissfucker on 180-gram black vinyl and special edition gray vinyl (ltd. to 300 copies) are still available at store.prostheticerecords.com/bands/trap-them.
