Music scene: Trapt
In 2002, rock band Trapt plowed stubbornly onto the Billboard charts with its mega-hit “Headstrong.”
Trapt is touring this summer in support of its newest album, “Reborn,” and will perform with guests 3 Pill Morning on Monday, May 27, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.
In 1997, before even graduating from high school, friends and original band members Chris Taylor Brown (vocals), Simon Ormandy (guitar), Peter Charell (bass), and David Stege (drums) rehearsed in Ormandy’s guesthouse and began playing local venues, according to Wikipedia.com.
In 1998 — between science tests and history finals — members of Trapt were opening for up-and-coming acts such as Papa Roach.
They recorded three CDs, toured and attracted the attention of Warner Bros. Records, which released the self-titled “Trapt” in 2002. “Headstrong” and “Still Frame” were hit singles from the album.
Trapt’s latest album is “Reborn,” released in January. It features the single “Love Hate Relationship,” which can be heard at trapt.com along with other tracks.
Joining original members Brown and Charell in the band’s current lineup are Dylan Thomas Howard on drums and Travis Miguel on lead guitar.
Tickets to the Mesa Theater and Lounge show are $15 and doors open at 7 p.m. Call 241-1717 or go to trapt.com for information.
