FROM THE FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM 'ELEUTHEROMANIA'
TROPE is an alternative rock band from Vancouver, BC. The band formed in 2016 when guitarist/producer Dave Thompson showed vocalist Diana Studenberg the embryo of what came to be their first song, Lambs. The band spent the next 2 years writing and recording while searching for bandmates who could keep up with the constant time signature changes and feels in the music.
After filming a short teaser video of Lambs, they garnered the attention of the music industry including Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) who agreed to engineer the album, and David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel), who agreed to creatively consult and mix the album.
Pre-production on the debut Trope record, titled ‘Eleutheromania’ which means a manic zeal for freedom, began in April 2017, and was tracked at both Armoury Studios and Hipposonic in Vancouver, B.C.
Trope’s music has been likened to A Perfect Circle and Tool with female vocals, their sound falling into the Art and Alternative Rock genre. Their ‘music first’ focus pairs with the groups sound, which is quite progressive.
Trope is currently filming a documentary of the making of the album with renowned cinematographer Stewart Whelan (Metallica – Some Kind of Monster, The Flash), and are currently playing shows locally and internationally in support of their debut, ‘Eleutheromania.’
