Bio

Blasting out of the Gold Coast Trapdoor has hit the music scene hard with their heavy rock riffs, dominant vocals, lively solid beats and grungy blues tunes. Their innovative sound resonates from each band member’s experiences and influences, reflecting a darker theme and classical sound.

Tim’s rustic vocals are pushing these rock royalties up the scale of the Gold Coast music scene. ‘The dual guitars from James Barnes and Talis Letts are chunkier than a porridge vomit; a proper, stadium-filling noise with enough attitude to corrode heavy metal.’ (Happy Mag.) The innovative blend of guitars, drums, bass and vocals guarantee Trapdoor’s rising success, they are a band to keep an eye and ear on.

These five legends have grunge, rock riffs pumping through their veins, making their live performance an indescribable experience.

With the success of their East Coast Tour which celebrated the release of their Debut EP BISON. Trapdoor jumped back into the studio to record their next hit ‘Show Me Your Love’ which will be released early August. They have big plans for the rest of the year and are hyped to release more blood pumping tracks.

Trapdoor are for the young and old, the rowdy and restless, the loud and proud and for every mo-fo who are looking to get loose on a night out. They are in for a whopper of a year.

Get Ready Guys and Gals, they're-a-comin' for ya!

What wails harder on this one - the singer or the guitar? Both are stacked pretty high with energy and riffage.
