July 3 - 6:30 PM @ Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard


TROPE is an alternative progressive rock band based in Los Angeles, California. The band formed in 2016 when guitarist/producer Dave Thompson showed vocalist Diana Studenberg the embryo of what came to be their first song, Lambs. The duo spent the next 2 years writing and recording while searching for bandmates who could keep up with the constant time signature changes and feels in the music. 

After filming a short teaser video of Lambs, they garnered the attention of the music industry including Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) who agreed to engineer the album with Thompson producing, and David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel), who agreed to creatively consult and mix the album. Ted Jensen (The Eagles, Dave Mathews Band) Mastered the album.

Trope signed a world wide deal with Golden Robot Records in March 2019. 

Select upcoming shows include support for The Cult in Reno on June 14, support for Royal Tusk and Switchfoot on July 3rd at Summerfest, and a 18-date European tour in September as direct support for Kings X.
