Portland quintet Blitzen Trapper’s new album Wild and Reckless is out now! Described by frontman Eric Earley as a “something like a cross-eyed stepchild to Furr“, referring to their break-through Subpop release. The new album was born from a stage production that the band spent the better part of a year producing. The half musical, half rock-opera dealt with heroin abuse, desperation, true love and western power structures. Early continues, “Ten years after Furr with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there’s more to tell.”
Wild and Reckless is available on Lojinx CD, LP and Digital. Vinyl is expected mid-November 2017.
