Nashville, TN – Celebrated rock band Blitzen Trapper are getting ready to unleash their highly anticipated new album All Across This Land October 2 on Vagrant Records, and EW.com has the exclusive premiere as part of the story featuring lead singer, songwriter, guitarist Eric Earley. In the piece, Earley discusses revelations that inform some of the album's deepest songs and the nostalgia surrounding the music that influenced his writing on All Across This Land. Check out the story HERE.
The band released the clever new video for the album’s title track, which premiered via The A.V. Club. The jovial clip features Blitzen Trapper rocking out in the back of a retro carpeted van while being zapped back in time machine-like style through the 1990’s, 1980’s, 1970’s, and outfitted to match. Each era is triggered by a CD, cassette and 8-track, VIEW VIDEO HERE.
In conjunction with the October 2 release of All Across This Land, 100 select independent record stores in the US will each have one vinyl copy of the album with sleeves hand-designed, autographed and numbered by the band. View #TrapperTreasure Details
All Across This Land opens with the title track’s big rock riffs, setting the listener up for a ride through Blitzen Trapper’s strongest, most cohesive work to date. The album features 10 of Earley’s well-crafted, retro inspired, thoughtful songs, performed brilliantly alongside bandmate’s Erik Menteer (guitar), Michael Van Pelt (bass), Marty Marquis (guitar/keys) and Brian Adrian Koch (drums).
