American rock band Trapt has just announced the release of their upcoming sixth studio album DNA set to come out this spring. This brand new record displays a refreshed, melodic sound that completely alters Trapt’s current style that their fans are so used to hearing. Trapt has also recently released a new music video for their track “It’s Over”. This song is the third single and second music video Trapt has released in expectancy of the new album. You can watch their video via Loudwire HERE. (http://loudwire.com/trapt-its-over-exclusive-video-premiere/) You can also buy the song via ITunes.
Trapt has officially kicked off their U.S. headlining tour this past Tuesday in Tucson, AZ. This tour features special guests Adakin, First Decree, and Meka Nism on select dates.

You also know that to be able to manage staying in the spot light after all this time and continue to be an influential artist today, this person must have the secret that many musicians are constantly on the hunt for who want to make it big in the music industry.
We had the pleasure to sit down with a kick ass dude who has not only been rocking out at venues a majority of his life, but who is also one of the coolest down to earth guys we've met.
Check out how PJ Farley of Trixter has gained success and his views on the music industry today, oh and he also lets us in on a little secret!
So no one wants to be a bass player, ok fuck it, I'll play bass, I'll borrow a bass.
Just like that I got stuck being a bass player, and you know how they say things just happen to work out?
People are like oh yeah playing in Giant stadium, selling million records, all that stuff is great, and it is all great but I think the longevity in it and that I've been a musician pretty much all my life.
It's cool because it is so easy to get your music out there in one way but its so hard to get it to the next level.
It's harder now than it ever was to get to that next level where you know, you're in the machine and you know you got the whole support team behind you. You can get the initial put your record out and get youtube hits and all that stuff but now it is wide open and anyone can make a record even if you suck, make a record, make it sound great, release it on your own and put it out there, so there is so much music out there but it is so much harder, and it was always hard, it was hard to go and get that million dollar record deal that people always dreamed of but it is so much harder now because really at the end of the day when I started there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and now there isn't.
Even if a new band got signed to Universal today, even if they were successful, they still probably don't have shit.
It's really hard because music has the same impact on people that it ever has, when you hear a song that you grew up with that you love it stays with you. So if you hear a new song today, it gives you a certain feeling, you love it and it doesn't get watered down by the fact that it's free or anything like that, but the fact is that it is so much harder for artists to make music on a consistent basis because who's paying at this point? Who's paying us to take time off from how we make money, pay our bills, it's so much harder to get it done.
You do something and you feel great about it...I'm just finishing my first solo record and I'm excited about it, I love it, I think it's going to be fantastic, but I also know to cut off the excitement at some point. I'm just happy it's done, its going to be out there, and I just want the people who are going to hear it to like it.
I don't care how many people it is, of course I would like it to be millions but I'm smarter than that, and there is kind of a sadness to that. A record coming out doesn't have an impact like it used to but you know you do it for the truest form. Do it for the love.
We have the title track which we never had before, it has all these cool little elements that is new for us and there is some stuff that is a little heavier, there is some stuff that's typical Trixter, there is a common thread through it that people have who have heard it say it is different but it is still the same and sounds like Trixter, it's not pretentious or forced. It's pretty natural
Really what made me get back to it and finish it was after we finished the Human Era record, I stayed in the studio and I was like I have a couple more songs that I want to record and put this thing together finally and there is really no other time to release a record when no one is buying them so I figured strike while the iron is cold.
