As previously reported, "Someone in Control" was produced by the band with Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Lit). It's the follow-up to Trapt's 2002 self-titled debut, which peaked at No. 42 on The Billboard 200. The set has sold more than 1.5 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and featured the single "Headstrong," which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Modern and Mainstream Rock charts.
"Every song is either about losing control or trying too hard to have control," vocalist Chris Brown says. "There's a fine line between allowing yourself to be vulnerable and closing yourself off to everything. There's a balance point -- and I think most people who are happy have found that balance. Being able to balance control is when you're really in control."
The group will tour extensively in support of "Someone in Control" but has yet to announce dates.
Here is the track list for "Someone in Control":
"Disconnected (Out of Touch)'
"Bleed Like Me"
"Use Me To Use You"
"My Own Design"
