Blitzen Trapper Thirsty Man EP
Out now is Blitzen Trapper's Thirsty Man EP & video, taken from their seventh studio album VII. Accompanying the title track are two non-album exclusives - "The Prophet" and "Plenty of Thrills".
The video was directed by fellow Portland native Robbie Augspurger. "This video had a mind of it's own, taking us into dark territory as usual", says frontman and principal songwriter Eric Earley. "Nothing like a bright red high heel phone to make you long for the days of land lines and speed of light travel".
Of the bonus tracks, Early comments "These are a couple of backwoods roadhouse jams meant to be listened to while warming up the truck at midnight".
Mojo Magazine recently stated "VII is a signpost to a whole new direction for Americana". It is out now on CD, 180 gram white vinyl LP & digital.
