  • About
  • Trapped In Static (TIS.) made their New York City debut in 2011 as an alternative rock/indie band featuring singer/guitarist Athan Hilaki (formerly of GAD.) and drummer David Torres. Athan’s dynamically strong vocals feature a falsetto and a hint of raspy power that are often compared to vocal legends like Bono, Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder and Scott Stapp. David’s drum rhythms take their influence from Kings Of Leon, Phoenix and Interpol. In the end of 2018, Amy Stargher was added in the lineup, a singer/guitarist and percussionist, previously with Jett & The Bombs, with strong vocals and electric stage presence. The core of the band is completed with Gina Rebelo on bass (formerly of Three Day Threshold) and influences from Bootsy Collins to John Paul Jones, and Peter Douskalis a skillful guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, creating the foundational surge for the listener to truly become part of the music.

Biography
Trapped In Static (TIS.) made their New York City debut in 2011 as an alternative rock/indie band featuring singer/guitarist Athan Hilaki (formerly of GAD.) and drummer David Torres. Athan’s dynamically strong vocals feature a falsetto and a hint of raspy power that are often compared to vocal legends like Bono, Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder and Scott Stapp. David’s drum rhythms take their influence from Kings Of Leon, Phoenix and Interpol. In the end of 2018, Amy Stargher was added in the lineup, a singer/guitarist and percussionist, previously with Jett & The Bombs, with strong vocals and electric stage presence. The core of the band is completed with Gina Rebelo on bass (formerly of Three Day Threshold) and influences from Bootsy Collins to John Paul Jones, and Peter Douskalis a skillful guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, creating the foundational surge for the listener to truly become part of the music. In 2013 they released their first EP after winning Artist Signal Artist Of The Month with a $10k reward and their fanbase expanding significantly in the USA, Greece, Colombia, Brasil and more. After touring extensively and headlining shows at Webster Hall and Highline Ballroom appearing on TV and radio, at the end of 2018 they released their first singles, “Good Kids”, “Born Again” and “Average Man” from their full length upcoming album and in 2019 the long anticipated “Top Of The World”. Using life experiences, as inspiration for their lyrics, the band strive to connect with the listener through rock-and-roll infused messages of overcoming obstacles with a tinge of sorrow-filled hope.
