    Trapt is an alternative band from Los Gatos, California. The band formed in 1995, after meeting in high school, with members: Chris Taylor Brown (vocalist), Simon Ormandy (guitarist), Peter Charrell (bassist) and David Stege (drummer) and recorded the albums ‘Amalgamation’ and ‘Glimpse’ to sell at local shows. After the absence of Stege (drummer), the band signed to Warner Bros. Records and began recording their debut self-titled album. The band then found their permanent drummer, Aaron Montgomery.

    On November 22nd, 2002, the band released Trapt, along with the single “Headstrong”. “Headstrong” became a hit, reaching #1 on alternative charts and #16 on pop. Follow-up singles “Still Frame” and “Echo” did well, although never gaining the same praise as “Headstrong”. “Headstrong” became the official theme song of WWE Bad Blood for June 2003. Trapt eventually hit platinum. After more than one year an EP followed on March 30th, 2004, that included a new song called “Promise” along with live versions of “Made Of Glass” and “Echo”. On September 13th, 2005, the band released their sophomore album “Someone In Control” along with the single “Stand Up”. In 2010 they released "No Apologies" and with thier fifth album "Reborn" they were more adventurous in the sound, using synthesizers and samples.

    Striven is a hard rock band from Westchester, NY & CT featuring:

    Greg Capra (Rhythm/Lead Guitar & Vocals)
    Conor O’Leary (Drums)
    Steve Riccio (Bass)

    Established in 2011, they have remained true to their grunge-rock and heavy metal roots. The focus of Striven is to retain that style while also producing a new sound for a modern audience. The word striven means to struggle in opposition, to push through the boundaries of adversity and reach a desired goal. This is the reason why this band refers to itself as striven, as the band strives to push beyond the tests of life.

    Striven's main influences include:
    Alice In Chains, Black Label Society, Faith No More, and Megadeth, to name a few.
