About the new single:

“This track is a great example of why we decided to release both the studio and live albums together. Originally, it wasn’t planned for the live setlist because the studio version has some really fast blastbeats, and since the lineup for the studio and live performances was different, we couldn’t reproduce the song live with Luc Hess on drums. So, what we did was keep the same riffs, lyrics, and structures, and Luc Hesswrote a new drum part for the entire song. It gives the live version a more punk and -core vibe compared to the studio version. This song also features the most epic chorus of the whole album, including a very cheesy (but loveable) guitar solo. I think this song will just keep confusing people about what to expect from Trounce.” – Jona Nido

Trounce is the new band of Jonathan Nido (founder / CEO of Hummus Records and guitarist of Coilguns) surrounded by illustrious musicians gravitating around the Hummus Records label (details below). The project was instigated by the prestigious Roadburn Festival, the European Mecca of heavy music commissions Hummus Records in 2022 for an exclusive project to present on stage this year’s festival.

The album will be released as one piece of work including 11 songs recorded in the studio as well as 11 more from recorded live at Roadburn Festival. Both versions offer some unique tracks as well as some alternative versions of the same songs. »The Seven Crowns« will be available on Oct. 20th as a double CD including the Live at Roadburn recordings as well as on a deluxe triple vinyl edition.

Behind Trounce’s boastful name hides the Roadburn-instilled new projet of Jonathan Nido (mastermind of Hummus Records and guitar player in the infamous Coilguns): the European Mecca of heavy music commissions Hummus Records in 2022 for a exclusive projet to present on stage this year’s festival.

To honor that flattering proposal, Nido digs up from his covid-drawers some Dark Funeral inspired riffs, and gather a troup of noisemongers surrounding the label: the staggering Luc Hess (Coilguns, Louis Jucker, Closet Disco Queen) on drums, the falsely retired Renaud Meichtry (Kruger) on vocals, the young prodigy Léa Martinez (Svarts, Etienne Machine) on Moog and vocals, Naser Ardelean (Yrre) on guitar and the noisy Anna Sauter (Yrre, Dubuk) on samplers – with the massive help of Kevin Galland’s live sound and Guillaume Ducommun’s impressive lightshow.

Trounce play their seminal show on April 2023 in Tilburg (NL), blowing away the 2000 people attending Roadurn’s “Terminal” stage that day. In the meanwhile, what might have looked like a black-metal parade has turned into hybrid and epic reckless rock, merging ferocious blastbeats with shoegaze, doom, noise and refreshing punkness.

Trounce then dives, with reduced personal including Icare’s Axel Vuille on drums, in the recording of »The Seven Crowns«: a frantic interpretation of Roadburn repertoire boosted with another five shellacking songs. The eleven pieces switch from nocturnal to solar, feature epic charges and metallic bulk, topped with vocals between preaching and vociferation, about the usual topics – a lot of people dying, God the Father and the other way round.

The album will be be presented as one piece of work including 11 songs recorded in the studio as well as 11 more from recorded live at Roadburn Festival. Both versions offer some unique tracks as well as some alternative versions of the same songs. »The Seven Crowns« will be available on Oct. 20th as a double CD including the Live at Roadburn recordings as well as on a deluxe triple vinyl edition.
