We’re very pleased to announce that Blitzen Trapper’s seventh studio album, VII, will be released Lojinx on the 30th of September in the UK & Europe.
The album is full of the vivid folk-rock-campfire-tales frontman Eric Earley is so well known for - take a listen to the album track, “Ever Loved Once” below. VII moves effortlessly from track to track, allowing Earley to paint the colorful pictures that play in our head while singing along. “…there are those songs I keep writing over and over again, “Ever Loved Once” with all its regrets and tragic lost love, “Don’t be a Stranger” its hopeful cousin but they all still point to the same worn out place in the heart of old E. Earley. And hey, we all have that place, that worn spot on the heart like the chew canister circle on the back pocket of blue jeans, or that one shred in the green felt of the table where you ground the stick in too hard… May these songs minister in ways mysterious and eternal, or at least maybe make you shake a hip”.

Wie gewohnt werden diese drei Ausnahmekünstler in lockerer Runde hintereinander weg spannende, intime Solo-Sets spielen, wobei es dann auch öfters zu Kollaborationen auf der Bühne kommen mag. Durch den Abend führt übrigens kein geringerer als Dirk Darmstaedter.
With his new release, “Ayahuasca: Welcome to the Work,” Lee treks into more challenging terrain as he explores healing journeys with the psychedelically powerful South American shamanic drink ayahuasca, which is becoming increasing popular in the industrialized North.
