WHAT

The Malthusian Trap are a band based in Plymouth, Devon.  We are part electronic, part mechanical and a 1/6 human.  A hybrid of styles born from a frustration of the generic.  In a short space of time we have played most major cities in the UK, appeared on various radio stations and are tipped by many to be a band to look out for.

WHO

Born a bastard love child fathered by the Hacienda of Manchester, the rave culture of Birmingham & the industrialism of the Plymouth dockyards.  The Malthusian Trap are made up of Doug Bishop on bass guitar, Rob Griffiths on lead guitar, Damon Foster on vocals and a robotic machine called Akai on drums.
