The Los Angeles-based Trade Secrets returns with “Escaping History”, a “new collection of stories about life, love and loss” as they call it. And more precisely, “this release is a reflection of the substantial emotional, artistic and existential growth that each of us as band’s members have experienced since the release of ‘These Other Lives’.”

The band themselves describe their sound as ‘future synth’ and was founded by machine rock veteran F.J. DeSanto (Hypefactor, the aggression) alongside longtime musical partners Mike “Ash” Venezia (Baye, 4th level) and multi-instrumentalist Charles LaBarbara. Joined by Peter Riley and John Kunkel, Trade Secrets blends multiple sounds and genres as you check out below.

“Life threw a few curveballs at us,” says the band’s F.J. DeSanto, “but when we finally got our shit together, it became clear that those challenges galvanized us and made us eager to dive into uncharted territory. That unity and desire to shake up how we operate has resulted in what could quite possibly be the best album we have ever made.”

“Escaping History” is available today from Distortion Productions on CD and through all digital and streaming platforms.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
