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.

Earlier this year, the Portland, Oregon-based Blitzen Trapper accomplished a unique feat for a rock band who has been releasing albums and touring for the better part of two decades: a staged musical titled Wild & Reckless that ran for 28 performances at Portland Center Stage. Today, the band is announcing a new album of the same title that was born from the stage production and as a companion to their 2008 breakthrough album Furr.

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly premiered “Rebel,” the first single to be released from the forthcoming album.

‘Rebel’ is a song about a guy who for the love of a girl follows in his father’s footsteps only to find it to be a scam,” explains principal and frontman Eric Earley. “After several tries at the American dream he ends up selling cocaine to blue bloods in the Hollywood hills. Something of a lost Raymond Carver story with shambling near-country soundtrack.

The album Wild & Reckless was born from the 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. The story evoked a bygone era of Portland with this sci-fi love story, featuring a rock-and-roll score that paired unreleased songs with favorites from the band’s catalog.

Following the success of the production, the band took 7 original songs from the production and developed the theme further into the 12 songs that comprise the new album Wild & Reckless.

Frontman Eric Earley also sees the record as a companion and extention of their 2008 album Furr. “Wild and Reckless is something like a cross-eyed stepchild to Furr, in that it chronicles the darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban west coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape. Ten years after Furr with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there’s more to tell.

Blitzen Trapper is Eric Earley (songwriter/singer), Erik Menteer (guitar, keyboard), Brian Adrian Koch (drums, vocals), Michael Van Pelt (bass) and Marty Marquis (keyboard, vocals). Wild & Reckless was produced by Eric Earley and Michael Van Pelt and was recorded by Gregg Williams at The Trench, in Portland, Oregon.  It was mixed by James Brown (Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon, Blitzen Trapper’s All Across This Land) at The Union.

Wild and Reckless is available for pre-order now and will be released in Europe on British indie label Lojinx. Pre-order now on heavyweight vinyl LP, CD & digital.

7 inches of vinyl pleasure… Get your minds out of the gutter, y’all. Today we are excited to announce the 7″ vinyl release of the song “Chrissie Hynde”. There’s also a bonus B-side of an unreleased track I wrote called “Growing Up (Don’t Let Me Down). Excited? Well you damn well should be because we are only makin’ 1000 of these puppies and the first 250 bought from my webstore will be signed autographed copies (by me. Sorry. Chrissie couldn’t sign them in time, so they won’t be worth as much on eBay. But still…) Alright. You know what to do. Click all this shit right here to make your vinyl pleasures come true – Butch
