TRAPT Tour Journal Week Two (Running Posts)

Hey Everyone! Hope you are well. We thought we’d do something a little different and do a tour diary of sorts. We hope you enjoy our journey with us! Lots of photos and insight coming up!

DAY EIGHT & NINE:
Yesterday was an off day! We spent it hanging out with our friends in Guns Out At Sundown at the Holland State Park. The beach was awesome, although I need some practice putting on sunblock. Lol My legs look like lobsters… We decided to hit the Walmart and Sam’s club to restock on some supplies. Kenny lived one of his life long dreams of driving around on of those Walmart cart pushers. It resulted in some punk employee trying to start a fight with us. We just laughed and headed back to the house. When we arrived, Miss Sharkey had prepared what was quite possibly the best spaghetti, and salad we’ve ever had. We even got to sample some really awesome red wine, the name of it slips my mind though. After dinner we

TRAPT Tour Journal Week One (Running Posts)

Hey Everyone! Hope you are well. We thought we’d do something a little different and do a tour diary of sorts. We hope you enjoy our journey with us! Lots of photos and insight coming up!

DAY ONE:
Today has been fun, but quite tiring. We were suppose to pack and load the trailer last night, but the storms had another plan for us. Instead we used the time to get a very solid last rehearsal in before our show in Kansas City, KS on Friday. Not loading the trailer meant we had to start quite a bit earlier than we initially planned. You never quite realize how much a band has to carry on the road until you load it at 7 in the morning. We finally got on the road about 11am or so, and headed to our bass player Ben’s house. We scooped him up and were on our way. 5 hours of riding, sleeping, joking, and more sleeping we make it to Nashville to pick up our new merch! Man it looks awesome BTW. Then we hit up a Kroger, and got stuff to cook burgers and dogs. We are all pretty damn hungry at this point haha. Now, we are headed to Beth Snoddy’s house to cook and rest before our long trip tomorrow! Catch ya’ll soon! – Matt

DAY TWO:
When I first started to type this out, my phone auto corrected the word ‘journal’ to ‘journey’… I found that to be quite fitting. Today has been mostly a lot of driving. We spent the night folding our new merch and watching the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. (which is badass) I can tell you this,

POYNTE Announces Summer Tour With Trapt & Sons of Texas

The Video for Hold On is finally here!!

Atlanta, GA based modern rockers POYNTE have released their debut music video for Hold On. Their first single from their THC : Music release, titled Discreet Enemy.

After surviving a horrific scissor lift accident which left him with a titanium jaw, POYNTE vocalist Kenny Hathorne is a living testament to the inspiring lyrics of Hold On. Kenny poured his heart and soul into developing a song that conveyed not only his determination, but his will to rise above his tragedy. Hold On is the end result. It’s a song about believing in yourself and never giving up on your own dreams. Staying the course, no matter the obstacles you encounter in your journey.
