Darkened hardcore troupe TRAP THEM have laid down another hard-hitting single from their “bizarrely catchy and eminently headbangable” (VICE) forthcoming release “Crown Feral” with the music video premiere for “Revival Spines” streaming via Invisible Oranges HERE or directly below.

Marking their fifth effort to date, TRAP THEM once more returned to Godcity Studios to enlist longtime friend Kurt Ballou (Converge, Skeletonwitch) to capture their definitive blend of HM2 heavy, d-beat driven grinding hardcore. The result birthed “one seriously loud, ferocious album” (Metal Rules) filled with ten tracks of “foaming-at-the-mouth ferocity” (Treblezine).

The new single, “Revival Spines”, along with two previously released singles “Luster Pendulums” and “Hellionaires”, can be downloaded prior to the album’s September 23 release date with the purchase of a digital pre-order from any of the following providers:


Physical pre-order bundles, which include “Crown Feral” on CD or LP (black, red and orange variants) paired with a t-shirt featuring the album’s riveting artwork designed by Mattias Frisk (Ghost, Vanhelgd) are also being offered at (US) / (UK/EU).

TRAP THEM will present their vicious new material across Europe and North America this Fall on two separate headlining tours. The European leg, which kicks off on October 14 in Koln, Germany, will feature support from UK death metal outfit Venom Prison and black’n’rollers Okkultokrati and will wrap up in Oslo, Norway on October 26.
