Trebuchet has created a reputation for themselves through incredible show after incredible live show, as one of the most entertaining groups in the area. And that is saying a lot in this town. But Trebuchet is not like most of the other artists in Denton. They have a sound that is unique to them alone and have staked out a corner of the local music scene and are keeping it for themselves. And as more time passes, and the hard work of the group starts to pay off, more and more people will be visiting that corner in the very near future. - My Denton Music


Trebuchet is an anomaly in the vanilla-indie Denton scene: guitar-driven hard rock with plenty of raw emotion. Alternating seamlessly between heavy, pounding Orange Amp distortion and jazz-esque time changes and key changes, Trebuchet captured the decent-sized crowd's attention for the entire 30-minute set. - Pegasus News


I’ve seen them enough to have an excellent idea of how the shows typically start. But I should’ve known better, because like I’ve said before, part of why I love these guys shows so much is that they are always different from each other. - The Music Enthusiast


Trebuchet, meanwhile, sound like what would happen if the Toadies dropped acid, listened to a bunch of Tool and sat down to record an album. They effectively sharpen the ragged edges of the grunge sound with interestingly layered guitars that smack of prog influence. - Dallas Observer


They have been called everything from prog-metal to post modern rock and roll, and this five-piece band from Denton loves every bit of it. The truth is that Trebuchet defies most standard classifications so don't try to squeeze them into a single type or genre, rather just listen to their debut album The Bear and The Moon and enjoy the tour of hard rock music that the band takes you on. - My Denton Music


So what if Denton’s Trebuchet has a flair for the dramatic? The local five-piece can carry off the anger-stained rock it deals in — both because the musicians write and perform with conviction, and because the band blends smart sounds with compelling lyrics. - Denton Record-Chronicle

Bio

Trebuchet is a top-to-bottom, do-it-yourself 5-piece Texas rock outfit comprised of music connoisseurs that are equal parts "sonic-perfectionist" and "humble-elitist". They combine experimentation in craft, conveyed feeling through tone, and a penchant for the audibly "interesting"; all the while taking the very best from their roots in classic rock, grunge, shoegaze, prog, jazz, and blues to push the boundaries of modern rock music composition and presentation. Indeed, as Josh Hogan from My Denton Music succinctly states, "They have been called everything from prog-metal to post modern rock and roll, and this five-piece band from Denton loves every bit of it. The truth is that Trebuchet defies most standard classifications so don't try to squeeze them into a single type or genre, rather just listen..."

Trebuchet also believes in and thrives on the energy and immediacy of the "live music" ethos. Afterall, each show IS its own event and will never happen again. So, why not exercise the ability to use multiple options over the cliche, cookie-cutter shit many rock bands call their set? "I’ve seen them enough to have an excellent idea of how the shows typically start," states Jordan Buford, the Music Enthusiast, "but I should’ve known better, because, like I’ve said before, part of why I love these guys' shows so much is that they are always different from each other."

Braving their "Spinal Tap" stage (3 lead singers, and 2 rhythm guitarists from 2004-2009), Trebuchet was able to record and distribute two DIY releases (2009's double-disc debut, "Bear and the Moon"; and 2011's EP "Trebuchet/The Phuss Split EP"), join Denton's Do For It Records, and are in the process of recording and releasing a follow-up LP before the world ends in 2012. Stay tuned.
