Persona Grata ― 2022 ― 00 000

TRAITRS

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 Gothic 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 30 July 2021 and the full-length LP ‘Horses In The Abattoir’ on 19 November 2021.
