True Parallels is the second studio album by Trust Company. Originally to be released in 2004, the release date had been pushed back to March 21, 2005 internationally and a day later in the United States. Despite little promotion from their label, the album entered the Billboard album charts at #32 and has gone on to sell in excess of 200,000 copies.

Background[edit]

Trust Company was originally scheduled to play at Ozzfest 2003 but canceled to focus on finishing True Parallels. Several months prior to the album's release, original bassist Josh Moates left the group and was replaced by Walker Warren.

"Stronger" was released as the album's single. Its music video, which received moderate airplay, features the band performing in a skatepark. Much like tracks from their previous album, "Stronger" served as the theme song to a WWE pay-per-view at Backlash 2005. It was also included on the soundtrack to MX vs. ATV Unleashed. According to drummer Jason Singleton on the band's message board, "The War is Over" gained much popularity within the World of Warcraft filmmaking community and was considered for a second single.

When they were known as 41down, the track that bore the title of this album was later remade for their album The Lonely Position of Neutral as the track "Falling Apart."
