Trespass was formed in Sudbury, Suffolk, England in April 1979 by brothers Mark (guitar, vocals) and Paul Sutcliffe (drums) Dave Crawte (guitar) and Richard Penny (bass).
Around this time they started gigging around East Anglia, playing a mix of rock covers and original songs including early versions of One Of These Days and Lightsmith.
Despite their fairly short lived time on the metal scene Trespass made a lasting impact.
Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield of Metallica remained fans from the very beginning and One Of These Days was featured on NWoBHM compilation ’79 Revisited put together by Ulrich and former Sounds/Kerrang! editor Geoff Barton in 1990.
Trespass have recently played festivals in the UK and Europe in 2015/16 and will be touring in 2018 supporting a new album, which is slated for release later this year.
