With their emotive melodies, propulsive rhythms, angular guitars and dark cinematic
electronics, TRAITRS have quickly become one of modern post-punk’s fastest rising
independent bands. Consisting of Sean-Patrick Nolan and Shawn Tucker, TRAITRS
formed during the summer of 2015 in Toronto, Ontario Canada. The duo recorded
demos with producer/engineer Josh Korody (Nailbiter, F*cked Up, Japandroids, Dilly
Dally), garnered the attention of Pleasence Records label head James Lindsay and
released their debut cassette Rites And Ritual in April 2016. After gaining buzz in the
European and North American dark music scenes, TRAITRS released their critically
acclaimed LP Butcher’s Coin (Pleasence Records, Manic Depression Records, Alchera
Visions) in May 2018. Backed by the strength of lead single ‘Thin Flesh’, the duo
embarked on a series of lengthy tours overseas, performed in over a dozen countries
including showcases at Wave Gothik Treffen, Castle Party, Extramuralhas, Nocturnal
Culture Night, Wavefest, Canadian Music Week and Pop! Montreal. Their relentless
touring schedule and work ethic caught the attention of Schubert Music Publishing’s
Thomas Thyssen and Eric Burton, and in October 2020 they announced TRAITRS as
the first signing to their brand-new record label Freakwave Records. This year,
TRAITRS will release ‘The Sick, Tired And Ill’ EP on July 30 and the full-length LP
‘Horses In The Abattoir’ on November 19.
