trappist

TRAPPIST'S impending debut LP, Ancient Brewing Tactics, is due out August 17th via Relapse Records. 

Formed in 2014, TRAPPIST unites bassist/vocalist/brewer Chris Dodge (Spazz, ex-Infest, ex-Despise You, etc.), guitarist/vocalist/fermenter Phil Vera (Crom, Despise You, ex- -(16)-), and drummer/vocalist/bottler Ryan Harkins (co-owner of Grill 'Em All). TRAPPIST has one clear mission, to annihilate the listener with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and hardcore all in the name of BEER. Picture Discharge-style punk and Xeroxed WWII photos with bombs replaced by casks, cans, and kegs.

This imagery comes to life in the video accompaniment to "Victims Of A Bomber Raid," of which the TRAPPIST brew-crew declares, "For those who don't know, a 'bomber' is slang for a 22oz beer bottle. With the state of the world today, the only solution is to drop as many 'bombers' as possible. It's a form of warfare we can truly get behind. Beers not bombs!"

For the ultimate sensory experience, TRAPPIST has recommended a specific beer pairing for listeners to drink along to each song on the album! "Victim Of A Bomber Raid" is paired with Surly Brewing Darkness Russian Imperial Stout.

Ancient Brewing Tactics deploys twenty-one tracks in thirty-three minutes; booze-induced chaos, bound to knock you on your ass faster than shotgunning a 15% Russian Imperial Stout. TRAPPIST rounds out their alcohol-fueled blasts with special guest appearances by Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan), Steve Brooks (Torche), and Blake Harrison (Pig Destroyer). NO CORPORATE BEER.

Ancient Brewing Tactics is due out August 17th on CD, LP, and digital via Relapse Records. 

The video for "No Soldier Left Behind" was directed by Alex von Alex stars the members ofTRAPPIST and more. With decades of experience and authority, The Sarge is on a mission to save brewskis from being wasted and confront any suspects who would commit such an unthinkable act. Reality TV crews capture the live confrontations, embracing how today's hops savvy brew culture connect through beer, using it as a catalyst to eliminate annual ale waste, propel a dialogue, and develop community. Compelling and unscripted, "No Soldier Left Behind" is a program filled with forceful purpose, an intense passion for cold ones, and lots of laughs.
