Biography

Graveltrap were born out of the cultural wastelend of Milton Keynes in 1999, an age when rock music was for the un-cool and punk chains were nicked from your dog, not sewn in to trendy jeans… Initially nfluenced by Therapy, Nirvana and Greenday they promptly rose the local ranks of the Milton Keynes scene to regularly sell out the Pitz becoming one of the cities most popular bands through their energetic live show and strong melodic songs about alienation and problems of being a teenaged misfit in MK.

In 2003 they got associated with the Ska scene (despite never having played ska), signing to Moonska Europe and have since been at the the forefront of the UK punk rock scene, with one album distributed internationally through Moonska and many more releases through other underground UK punk labels. Debut album ‘Concrete & Udder Chaos’ produced by Iain Wetherell (Goober Patrol, Capdown, Vanilla Pod) brought together a collection of their teenaged anthems, spawning the pop-punk video stomper S.R.J. which topped the Scuzz charts in 2003 beating off Metallica and Less Than Jake for three weeks!. Other tracks off the album have been included on various compilations, most notibly Metal Hammers cover CD ‘Sounds of the Underground’ in Dec ‘03 and Compunktion 1 & 2 released on Sucka-Punch.

2003 - 2004 saw them on a heavy touring schedule with numerous Moonska package tour appearances out on the road with the likes of Spunge, Never Heard Of It, Whitmore and Mixtwitch and large shows with Bowling for Soup, Lars Fredricksen, Capdown and Therapy at the National Adventure Sports Show.
