North Jersey-based rock/rap crossover band Concrete Dream have just unleashed their debut single, “Pit Trap,” which features guest vocals from rapper Hyro the Hero (stream the clip below). The track’s official video was filmed in a warehouse in West New York earlier this spring with directing duties being handled by Dale “Rage” Resteghini (Fall Out Boy, Soulja Boy, Akon). The song comes off Concrete Dream‘s self-titled debut full-length album, due June 28th via E-Train Records (pre-order).
“Pit Trap is a song dedicated to those struggling, fighting and finding their own unique way through life, aka the “pit,”” comments bassist/vocalist Alejandro Mena in an official statement.
Vocalist Jeremiah Mayhem adds, “Some people are born into the struggle and some people are born in the struggle, and a product of a bad environment, and that’s our character, Tony. While the pit is his escape, it’s also his downfall. He’s constantly causing trouble–it’s his retaliation with anger for what life caused him.”
Hyro The Hero says, “Concrete Dream asked me to spit a verse on ‘Pit Trap’ and when I heard it, I went crazy. It’s the perfect mix of trap and metal. This song should be the soundtrack to any turn up.”
Prior to their new LP release, Concrete Dream will hit the road for select Tri-state area shows, kicking off with a stint at ‘Diablo Fest’ (aka ‘BNB Bowl 2019’ pre-bash) at Brooklyn Bazaar on May 17 [TIX]. Moving on, the band also play Poughkeepsie’s The Chance on May 19, plus gigs in Sayreivlle and Jersey City with P.O.D., Red Hymns and others.
