Trapdoor Social is a Los Angeles based independent rock band with a mission.
With it’s origins in a college environmental studies program, the band has a record of fundraising and activism to promote sustainability. Starting in 2015 Trapdoor Social branched off from the usual mix of club/radio/college shows and began producing outdoor, solar-powered concerts and events around the US, including Sunstock Solar Festival, which is takes place in Los Angeles annually. Their other projects combining music with activism have benefitted → Homeboy Industries, →Mesa Ridge High School, and → Kids Cancer Connection.
The band’s music is energetic and passionate, with lyrics that play with love, philosophy, and social critique. Several of the band’s songs— « Away », “Fine on My Own,” “Sunshine,” and “Wining as Truth” – have received significant airplay around the country, a national TV ad placement and success on Spotify’s ‘Discover Weekly’.
Since Sunstock ’17, the band has been working on an LP that will be their fourth release. Their new single « Hold Me Down » blends surf rock and captivating indie pop featuring anthemic melodies and jangly guitars. Trapdoor Social is set to release a full album following around the new year, and a national tour in the spring of 2019.
