Trapt is not having a good 2020. After selling only 600 copies of their new album first week, and dodging payments to his music video director, frontman Chris Taylor Brown had to make some money back. Trapt were among the bands performing at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip – 10 days of bands, tattoos, roller derby and other various entertainment, with virtually no social distancing enforced.

Well, it looks like you really didn't need to enforce social distancing during Trapt's set, because it doesn't seem like anybody showed up to see them. Other bands on the bill included Smash Mouth, Buckcherry, Drowning Pool, Night Ranger, Reverend Horton Heat, Lit, 38 Special, Quiet Riot, and Big Skillet.

To be clear, there were plenty people at the festival. For example, take a look at how many people were in attendance for Smash Mouth, who played the same weekend as the Trapt, and were one of the headliners.

And while we have yet to uncover video footage of Trapt's performance, we have seen two photos and it looks brutal!

There did seem to be one person who was very attentive of Chris Taylor Brown's set…

Update: Shortly after posting this story, we were made aware that Trapt shared their own photos from the event, where it looks like they did eventually draw what could be considered a crowd. It should be noted that the photos are very conveniently from a low perspective on stage making it hard to discern how many people past the first few rows are actually watching Trapt and not just hanging out further away from the stage.
