Trapped In Static (TIS.) made their New York City debut in 2011 as an alternative rock/indie band featuring singer/guitarist Athan Hilaki (formely of GAD.) and drummer David Torres. Hilaki's dynamically strong vocals feature a hint of raspy power that are often compared to vocal legends Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audioslave), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) and Scott Stapp (Creed). Torres's drum rhythms take their influence from Kings Of Leon, Phoenix and Interpol, creating the foundational surge for the listener to truly become part of the music. Using the depth of life experiences as inspiration for their lyrics, the band strive to connect with the listener through rock-and-roll infused messages of overcoming obstacles with a tinge of sorrow-filled hope. Guitar riffs, keyboards and an emotionally-charged stage presence add to the radio-ready experience of TIS.
