American rockers TRAPT have released two new songs, "Make It Out Alive" and "Tell Me How You Really Feel". Both tracks are taken from the band's upcoming album, "Shadow Work", which will be released on June 19 via The Label Group/INgrooves. A third single, "Far Enough Away", will arrive on May 22. The first three singles will be instant-gratification tracks, along with a Jewel cover, "Save Your Soul", which is only available when you pre-order the digital album.
TRAPT singer Chris Taylor Brown states: "'Make It Out Alive' was the last song written for our new album, 'Shadow Work', and I hope it inspires people to never give up.
"Times can get so tough and it can be easy to just want to let go of all the struggle. But I think the struggles we go through define us. Each crisis we go through, staring into an abyss of the unknown, makes us stronger when we come out the other side.
"I know that we will come out stronger, as a country and as a world, through the current crisis we find ourselves battling and every other crisis that comes our way in the future. We always do."
Formed in 1997 in Los Gatos, California, TRAPT is best known for its chart-topping 2002 single "Headstrong".
