Trapt are a four-piece post-grunge/alternative metal band originating from Los Gatos, California in the United States. They currently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the band is also currently based there.
Trapt formed in 1997 with Chris Brown on vocals (born June 21,1979), Simon Ormandy playing guitar, Peter Charell on bass, and David Stege playing the drums. Shortly after, they recorded two albums (Amalgamation and Glimpse) to sell when they played at local venues. The band received a great response, and a buzz started to grow.
The band proceeded to sign with Warner Bros. Records and started recording their debut album, with the help of Robin Diaz replacing Stege on the drums (Diaz was eventually replaced by their current drummer, Aaron Montgomery). On November 22, 2002 the band released the self-titled Trapt which produced a total of three singles. "Headstrong" was the first, and it reached #1 on both the US Modern Rock and Us Mainstream Rock charts, as well as #16 on the US Hot 100, marking their most successful single to date, and becoming the theme song for WWE Bad Blood during June 2003. The second single from the album, "Still Frame", also managed to achieve #1 spot on the US Mainstream Rock chart, but failed to do as well on the other two charts. The third single, "Echo" (whose video had an appearance from Michelle Trachtenberg) did best on the US Modern Rock chart, achieving #10.
