Finally the wait is over. NWOBHM legends TRESPASS release new music video, "Momentum", a hard rocking British metal song with an old school 80's PRIEST vibe.

"Momentum" is out on all digital streaming services and is taken from the upcoming comeback album Footprints In The Rock, out 12th of January 2018 worldwide on Mighty Music (ex. Japan by Bickee Music).

Watch the music video for "Momentum" on KNAC.COM right HERE.

TRESPASS was formed in Sudbury, Suffolk, England in April 1979 by brothers Mark (guitar, vocals) and Paul Sutcliffe (drums), Dave Crawte (guitar) and Richard Penny (bass). Around this time they started gigging around East Anglia, playing a mix of rock covers and original songs including early versions of "One Of These Days" and "Lightsmith".

The band were spotted by Trial records, a new local independent record label and were offered an opportunity to release a single. TRESPASS recorded a self-financed session at Hillside Studios Ipswich in October 1979. This featured "One Of These Days" and "Bloody Moon" which were destined to be the bands first singles on the Trial label.

"One Of These Days" was released as a single in January 1980 and gained airplay on Radio One’s Friday Night Rock Show hosted by Tommy Vance and was also played by legendary DJ John Peel. "One Of These Days" became a firm favourite with the crowd at the Sound house rock disco hosted by Neil Kay in London and featured regularly in their metal charts featured in Sounds magazine. Richard Penny, despite all he had contributed it was decided, was not right for the long term and he was replaced on bass guitar by Cris Linscott.

The band recorded a session at Spaceward studios in Cambridge which was also used by IRON MAIDEN for their Soundhouse Tapes. A new version of "One Of These Days", a new track called "Stormchild", "Lightsmith" and a potential new single "Live It Up!" were recorded. These versions of "One Of These Days" and "Stormchild" were to ‘headline’ the EMI compilation Metal For Muthas Volume II. All other bands on the album were represented by one track.

IRON MAIDEN had similarly had two tracks featured on Metal For Muthas Volume I. During this period Lars Ulrich and James Hetfeild of the fledgling METALLICA joined the TRESPASS fan club. Many UK shows followed including at the prestigious Marquee club in Wardour street London.

A radio one session for The Friday Night rockshow was recorded. A track from which "Visionary", with an excellent lyric written by bass guitarist Cris Linscott, was featured on the BBC compilation album Metal Explosion which also featured bands such as SAMSON and GILLAN. TRESPASS recorded a demo session at EMI which it was expected to lead to a major deal. A second single "Live It Up" was delayed by the departure of singer Steve Mills and the recruitment of Robert Eckland also due to major label interest in the song.

In 1981 the band recorded their third single the Bright Lights EP. Bob Irving left the band during recording. Following the tragic early death of Mark and Paul’s father Allan Sutcliffe, TRESPASS finally split in 1982. Despite their fairly short lived time on the metal scene TRESPASS made a lasting impact. Lars Ulrich and James Hetfeild of METALLICA remained fans and "One Of These Days" was featured on NWOBHM compilation 79 Revisited put together by Ulrich and Geoff Barton in 1990.

The band released their greatest hits album The Works in 1992. This was also released in Japan through Pony Canyon Records. TRESPASS released the studio album Head in 1993 showing a marked change in sound and style. A 1999 TRESPASS concert live in Tokyo Japan, was released through Pony Canyon as Metal Crusade along with NWOBHM bands SAMSON, TANK and PRAYING MANTIS.

A further major worldwide release was One Of These Days The Anthology released in 2004 through Castle/ Sanctuary Records. A new album Trespass was recorded in 2012, featuring brand new versions of the bands early tracks, recorded to a high standard with a consistent sound and feel.

The band have currently reformed with Mark Sutcliffe at the heart of things and a new line up: Dan Biggin (Bass), Joe Fawcett (Guitar), and Jason Roberts (Drums). TRESPASS have played live shows at festivals in the UK and Europe in 2015/16/17.
