TRAP THEM are premiering a track a day from their Prosthetic Records' debut, "Darker Handcraft," this week on various sites. Today, the song, "Slumcult and Gather," can be heard exclusively on Decibel's website, here: http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/streaming-trap-them-slumcult-and-gather/ Be sure to check the band's and label's Twitter pages every day to find the rest!

 "Darker Handcraft'" will be released in North America tomorrow, March 1st on vinyl, and March 15th on CD and digital. Due to popular demand, the vinyl is currently being repressed on black, a transparent green and on a red and yellow mixed wax; the green and red/yellow mix are limited to 100 copies each. Pre-order is up now and LPs will be shipping in mid-March. Be sure to order now, as the first pressing went quickly! CDs and exclusive TRAP THEM T shirts are also available, all at the official Prosthetic Webshop.

TRAP THEM recorded "Darker Handcraft" at Godcity Studio with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Disfear, Black Breath). The album artwork and layout was done by Justin Bartlett (Sunn 0))), The Funeral Pyre).  

Brooklyn Vegan commented on the album: "Trap Them have crafted the first must-hear record of 2011, and possibly their best LP to date. Highly, highly recommended."

TRAP THEM will be touring down to South By Southwet starting next week with The Red Chord and Gaza, and will then be heading to Europe in April with Rotten Sound, Gaza, the Kandidate and Haust.
