Blitzen Trapper Australian Tour Dates 2012 – Bluesfest Sideshows

Alt-country rockers Blitzen Trapper will be touring Australia on the back of appearances on the Bluesfest 2012 line-up and West Coast Blues ‘n’ Roots Festival. They’ll be playing show and headline shows in both Sydney and Melbourne.

The Portland, Oregon outfit released their third album American Goldwing in September. The album was written and recorded in a span of six months, before touring globally, playing at iconic festivals such as Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. According to vocalist Eric Earley, it was during this time the band realised this new album was extraordinary, referring to it as “the real record”.

Forming in 2000, genre-straddling has always been a specialty of Blitzen Trapper, who have masterfully blended indie, folk-rock with alt-Country, but at their heart they have a classic rock and roll sound that is drenched in warming harmonies.

Their live show has always garnered alluring reviews and promised unwavering, passionate energy onstage..
