SPEEDTRAP set release date for second SVART album

Speedtrap’s sophomore album, Straight Shooter, will hit the shops September 11th via Svart Records, and the new single, also titled Straight Shooter, is out now as a teaser for the album and the band’s summer live performances (remaining dates after the jump).

Speedtrap‘s debut album, Powerdose, took many by surprise and left many established acts eating dust on several end-of-the-year lists in 2013. Metal Hammer called it “metal fed on a diet of Motorhead and alcohol, Exciter and suspect powders – high octane and hellbent for leather” while InvisibleOranges.com considered it a “fist-raising triumph.” Since then, Speedtrap have performed across the European continent and also gone through some lineup changes: Jaakko Hietakangas (ex-Ranger) has joined the ranks as second guitarist, and Antti Salminen has taken up bass duties while earlier bassist Markus Hietamies has switched to the drum-set.

Even though Speedtrap still are a loud, obnoxious bunch of catchy riff-mongers with no regard for speed limits, Straight Shooter also showcases the band’s ability to push the envelope and, with their new dual-guitar setup, write memorable songs that twist and turn like a drag racer on LSD. Hear the first evidence of this with the Straight Shooter single HERE. Cover for the album (painted by Paul Chapman) and track listing are as follows:
