Los Angeles four piece Trope will be bringing out their debut album Eleutheromani, a work that’s said to refer to a mad zealousness or irresistible craving for freedom. It’s to be released through Golden Robot Records.
Those in the know describe them as being reminiscent of A Perfect Circle or Tool with female vocals, but to that add progress textures and melodies rooted in the alternative rock world.
Guitarist/producer Dave Thompson and vocalist Diana Studenberg first got together in 2016. The next two years were spent, writing, recording and gathering additional band members. The results of that being Eleutheromani as engineered by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) mixed by David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel), and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, The Eagles). Some heavy duty names.
“To have the support and faith in something you work so hard to create, that you deeply hope will resonate with others, is a real blessing,” said Studenberg of their record label signing and the input of all those involved, adding, “We are beyond excited about the future.”
Prior to the release of Eleutheromani, Trope has released a preview for the song ‘Lambs’ and you can watch it here at RAMzine.
