Blitzen Trapperband Blitzen Trapper: New Album and Summer 2010 Tour

Blitzen Trapper is the type of band that transcends one’s impression of folk music. As a sextet, the Portland-based ensemble is a complicated, beautiful spin on what one would regard as folk…basically, this is not your parents’ Peter, Paul and Mary.

Later this week their new album, Destroyer of the Void, will be released on Sub Pop Records. It will be their third album on the legendary label and a summer long tour is scheduled to follow. With three months of shows, Blitzen Trapper will be impossible to miss…so mark your calendars and make a date to go see them.
