Biography

A Trillion Barnacle Lapse was a post-hardcore band based out of Providence, Rhode Island. Original members, Michael Lamantia Jr., Anthony Ferreira, Alexander Laorenza, and Jonathan Santoro, first began playing as sophomores in high school under the name Tomorrow’s Will, finding an audience in the local hardcore scene. As their sound and influences evolved, so did their name, and A Trillion Barnacle Lapse was unveiled in 1999 with a self-released four song 7” titled The Target With Plastic Casts. As the record circulated with a steady string of East Coast shows and hype on burgeoning internet blogs, the band was offered it’s first official release, a split 7” with Massachusetts based band The Last Forty Seconds on Pretty In Pink Records. The three songs contributed to this release highlighted a distinct synthesizer induced post-hardcore sound, which would mark a drastic stylistic shift. During this era, another three tracks were recorded for a split 7” slated with As The Sun Sets (later known as Daughters), but this release never materialized.

From 1999-2001 the band gigged and toured on this material, steadily gaining notoriety along the way for their intense, flamboyant performances. Upon returning from their first US tour, the band recorded The Elemental Gearbot, signing on with Level Plane Records. Considered the “classic” A Trillion Barnacle Lapse record, the band received a near flawless rating in a 2002 issue of Alternative Press. This release saw an evolution from the manic flux of their early work, to a focused sound grounded in driving guitars, layered synths, drum programming, and ominous vocals.
