This doomy rocker is a track from the second Tremonti album, Cauterize
. The band is led by Mark Tremonti, who sings lead - something he didn't do with his bands Creed or Alter Bridge. Mark also does all the songwriting in the band, including the lyrics. "Dark Trip" he wrote about a friend who turned against him.
"Our families were close, we were close, he worked for me business-wise," Temonti said in his Songfacts interview
. "But he left me hanging and it was a shock and it was a big blow for us as a family, so it's a very personal song."
