Portland folk band, Blitzen Trapper, is taking traditional mountain folk music and adding their own modern, experimental twist to it. Blitzen Trapper's roots style of folk and energetic tour dates have garnered acclaim from nearly every reputable music source over the last few years. Both those critics and the band's huge fan base can't wait for the release of Blitzen Trapper's latest album, American Goldwing, in September. Nor can they wait for the band's upcoming 2011 tour dates, featuring a co-headlining tour with Dawes.
Blitzen Trapper was formed by Eric Earley in 2000, influenced by his Ozark musical heritage and inspired by a fever-induced nightmare of a demon in his room. After forming the band, Earley spent much of his time living a hobo's life, living outdoors and independently releasing two albums that were recorded in an old telegraph building. After gaining some local popularity with the help of some tour dates, Blitzen Trapper released their third album, Wild Mountain Nation, which received attention from a number of critics and audiences. Shortly after the album's release, Blitzen Trapper went on tour in support of The Hold Steady, which brought them even further recognition. Production values improved on 2010's Destroyer of the Void and, in addition to becoming one of Blitzen Trapper's greatest albums, brought Earley out of homelessness.
According to Earley, Blitzen Trapper's upcoming album, American Goldwing, is inspired by the death of someone close to him and deals with the helplessness of trying to escape from a nostalgic, small town. While fans wait for the album's release on September 13, fans can catch Blitzen Trapper on their co-headlining 2011 tour dates with Dawes. The tour begins on October 7 and will be end in November, so buy your tickets on Eventful today!
