On their new album, Dreaming In Black And White, Trust Company branches off in exciting new
directions while retaining the overpowering combination of intense hard rock and irresistible
melodies that will delight both the hardcore base of fans that have been waiting patiently for years
for Trust Company to return, and a new throng of fans that will be hearing the band for the first time.
The last the world heard from Trust Company was in 2005, when after release of their second album,
True Parallels, they announced that they d be going on hiatus. As lead vocalist and guitarist Kevin
Palmer remembers, After True Parallels, we were in a bad spot. No one was happy. We had been
rushed into the studio to meet a record company deadline and all those external pressures all the
outside opinions about how our music should sound had it stop being fun, which is why we got
into it in the first place. Drummer Jason Singleton adds, We never said we re breaking up. It just
stopped being exciting. We had to get away from the big machine for a while.
The band had made a lot of fans since its formation in 1997 and especially after their breakout
success in 2002, with their gold selling debut, The Lonely Position Of Neutral and the hit single
Downfall. Extensive airplay on MTV for Downfall and continuous touring with such bands as
KoRn, Papa Roach and Disturbed earned the band an especially rabid following, one that stuck
around through the ensuing years that the band was apart.
The evidence of all the good feeling created by their reunion is in their new album, Dreaming In
Black And White. Produced by Chuck Alkazian, the album is less a return to form than it is the truest
representation of the band ever captured on record.
