The release date of "Reborn", the brand new album from California rockers TRAPT, has been pushed back to January 22, 2013 from the previously announced November 20. No reason was given for the delay.
"Reborn" (Epochal Artist Records) will be made available in a standard version as well as a deluxe edition which will feature five acoustic songs from "Reborn" as well as the never-before-released fan favorite "Avelyn". The CD was produced by TRAPT vocalist Chris Taylor Brown and Matt Thorne, known for his work with THE EELS, THE DONNAS and BONNIE MCKEE.
"This record is really a new sound for TRAPT," states Brown. "With 'Reborn', we really wanted to use new sounds and textures as well as experiment with delays, reverbs, synths and many other techniques we have learned over the years or have heard in our influences. Lyrically, this album is as deep and thoughtful as any album that TRAPT has done in the past."
From the opening note of the first single, "Bring It", to the album closer, "You're No Angel", it is clear TRAPT is back to pick up where previous hits such as "Headstrong", "Echo" and "Who's Going Home With You Tonight?" left off.
"Bring It" impacts radio the week of October 1 and was also just released to iTunes in double single format bundled alongside "Love Hate Relationship". A video for the first single was recently shot in Las Vegas and will be released in the next few weeks.
TRAPT will be heading out on tour in support of "Reborn". The trek kicks off October 24 in Las Vegas and runs through November 29, wrapping up in Chico, California.
