Hailing from Las Vegas, NV, TRVLRS is a hard rock/metal band formed in late 2018 bringing unique musical tastes together to create a twist to modern rock, drawing influence from bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Coheed and Cambria, and Beartooth to create a unique fusion of hard rock, metalcore, and prog rock. TRVLRS is a hard-hitting, yet personal experience to the listener.
The band consists of: Matt McDonald (vocals/guitar), Joaquin Ortiz Morales (drums), and Sergio Lopez (bass/vocals).
Creating at a young age together, Sergio and Matt developed a strong bond as musicians, learning from one another as they grew up. Matt and Joaquin met in 2017 with the formation of their previous band, with Sergio joining the project in 2018. The three branched off upon the dissolution of that project to form TRVLRS, with the goal of engaging with audiences on a deep level with lyrical themes driven from personal experiences and musical themes that remain true to who they are, all while creating an energetic, positive, inspiring, and fun experience for fans.
TRVLRS is currently recording their latest EP alongside Vegas-based producer Jonas Vece at Second Born Sound. They have rocked the stages of Vegas including House of Blues Las Vegas, Backstage Bar & Billiards and more supporting national acts like SECRETS, Awaken I Am, Assuming We Survive, In Her Own Words and Forever Came Calling.
