Blitzen Trapper announce extensive European tour

Blitzen Trapper have announced an extensive European tour covering Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark in April 2018.

The Portland, Oregon-based rock quintet are heading across the atlantic in support of their newly released album Wild and Reckless. 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 out now on Lojinx CD, LP and Digital.

Dial-A-Song week 43 is “It Said Something”, visuals created by Victor Fitzsimons.

TMBG UK Tour dates 2016!

it just said something, nobody heard it but me
I wasn’t recording, anyway why would I be?
it said something new that wouldn’t come out of me
and I don’t even dream about that kind of thing

that’s not the insane part, the insane part is
first of all it can speak
second of all the thing it said, it’s like it read my mind

it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down
it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again

excavate the book, nobody needs to know why
sell the delusion look it in the eye
speak it in reverse so the babies can see
dress them in silver, set the monkeys free

that’s not the insane part
the insane part is first of all it can speak
second of all the thing it said it’s like it read my mind

it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again
it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down

it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again
it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down
