Official press release:

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Los Angeles, CA trio Trappist. Formed in 2014 and consisting of scene legends Chris Dodge (Infest, Spazz, Despise You, etc.), Phil Vera (Crom, Despise You, -(16)-) and Ryan Harkins (co-owner of popular heavy metal themed burger joint Grill Em' All, ex-Killed In Action), Trappist have one clear mission, to annihilate the listener with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and grind all in the name of beer (their name gives a nod to the Trappist or abbey ales brewed by Cistercian monks in [mostly] Belgium). Picture Discharge style punk and Xeroxed WWII photos with bombs replaced by beer bottles, cans, and kegs.

The first single from Trappist, "No More Corporate Beer", was hailed by Decibel Magazine as "a pit-churning blast against macrobrews and the sheep who drink them." Listen now and download for free via the recently released Relapse Records 2017 label sampler.

Trappist are currently recording their debut full-length at guitarist Phil Vera's Veracuda Studios in Los Angeles. A Spring 2018 release is expected via Relapse.
