Los Angeles based band Trapdoor Social have just released their new single “Great Lake” via Wonderland accompanied by a stunning video (see below).
Last year Trapdoor Social transformed from a duo to a 5-piece, their eponymous debut album is a raucous, anthemic environmental call to action, erupting with signature blues rock and bass synth riffs. Titled ‘Trapdoor Social,’ it’s the band’s first full-length album, and was the first TDS project that included the work of bassist and guitarist Patrick Griffen and Louie Gonzalez. The first single, “Sunshine,” had national success receiving airplay across the country and winning another “Hall of Fame” Status for the band on Las Vegas’s X107.5 “The Beatdown” as well as staying in the Top 5 of KROQ’s “Locals Only” show for over a month.
Disturbed by increasing carbon emissions and environmental degradation, the journey started after Trapdoor Social’s Merritt Graves and Skylar Funk met in an Environmental program at Pomona College and bonded over a shared concern for the future of the planet.
